Classic Car Overview

1974 Mercedes Benz 450SL Back in this early 70s era Mercedes-Benz was known for over engineering their cars and constructing them like Panzer tanks. Utilizing the best technology of the time, and being innovative in their designs, these cars are now on the verge of being collectibles. They certainly are classics, and obviously do not have the glitz and glamour of todays Mercedes-Benz models, but no matter what, they retain the quintessential Mercedes-Benz THUD when you close the door, regardless of age. At all but 147,000 miles this car is in need of some TLC. Exterior Originally blue on blue now white on blue, a several year ago respray shows signs of patina, and some dents and markings. Badging is all there, and bumpers and britework are in good condition. It is unknown what condition the convertible top is in due to an inability to remove the hard top. This car does have heat insulating glass and a rear window defogger for the hardtop. Interior Blue MB Tex seats in fair condition flank a center console with some wood accent around the gear shift lever. As it ascends to the dash, various controls and trim present in well used condition. Some trim has been pulled off its mounting to insert what appears to be a hands-free microphone for a cell phone. Carpeting is all there and shows wear but is clean. A white headliner is covering the underside of the hardtop and shows in good condition. Power windows, air conditioning, an automatic antenna and a central power locking system are installed options on this car. Drivetrain A 275.8ci V8 and an automatic transmission are installed, however at the time of photographing and inspecting we could not get this car to run. Undercarriage Some major repairs have been done to the underbody to remediate rust. The remediation method was not the neatest of jobs. Some corrosive rust does still exist. Technically a project car, with some of the problems that exist. Attention will have to be paid to many details, however the car definitely could be brought back to life. Many unknowns are within the history of this car, so it may be wise to have a knowledgeable person tag along for a close look.
