1974 Mercedes-Benz 450SL
If you're a fan of vintage Japanese cars, be sure to check out Nissan's online heritage site. There are tons of vintage Nissan pics and specs going all the way back to the 1920s. Each featured car or truck has relevant specs and a little "detail" tab that gives some background on that specific car.
The Volkswagen Kombi van reached iconic status, with even a school lunch box fashioned in its image. During those early years, the Volkswagen Microbus morphed into various forms. From a cargo carrier with no windows behind the driver's seat to a windowed passenger van with three rows of seats, the possibilities seemed endless.
Classic Car Overview
This car was purchased from the prior owner in April of 1986
with just over 35,000 miles. It currently has just under 71,000 miles and I
have all service records since 1986. It has been garage-kept and there is NO RUST on the car. The dash has
cracked in a few places over time; a common issue with these cars.
The door panels and seat covers are MB-Tex vinyl and are in excellent
condition. I replaced the seat cushions years ago with the correct MB coconut fiber cushions and they are still firm and supportive, as the photos show. The loop-pile carpet has held up well. The hardtop headliner is
original and is in superior condition. The canvas soft top, believed to be
original, is also in great condition! All weather strip rubber is original and in very good condition.
Everything works except for the clock. I fitted the car with European headlamps
back in ‘86, but I kept the original round headlamp units, which will convey with
the sale if desired. Likewise, I kept the original Becker Europa radio which
will also convey, if desired. The engine has been maintained to the most demanding
standards and continues to run very strong. As components occasionally failed or wore out over the years, they were replaced with only OEM Mercedes Benz parts to maintain factory standards. This is the last model year before the
horsepower-robbing catalytic converters were mandated on US-spec cars. You can absolutely find a cheaper priced SL, but finding one that is completely rust-free, and that has been consistently maintained to the highest standards, complete with records to prove it will be challenging!
NOTE: I will respond only to phone calls, so if you are interested or would like additional information, please call me directly. I will not respond to texts or emails. When the car is sold I will immediately remove the ad; thus, if the ad is posted, the car is available.
