Classic Car Overview

Sport Leicht Auto Gallery is pleased to offer this gorgeous 1978 Mercedes-Benz 450SL !

VIN ID# 10704412044542   ///   Production Date: 11/77

Exterior: Signal Red (DB-568)

Interior: Black Leather (201)

Soft Top: Original Black Mercedes issue

Mileage: 94,300 (Original documented)

An exceptional example that was originally purchased in Northern California by Robert Miller Photography, its first owner, and lovingly cared for until 2014 when it changed hands. We have the original invoice and original window sticker. We are impressed at the condition and preservation on this vehicle and you will be hard pressed to find an equal.

The Signal Red paint shows very nice deep shine and luster. The chrome, rubber and trim look excellent. A matching hard top with high quality original headliner and superb glass and trim included. 

The original issue Mercedes Wopavin black soft is in perfect condition as evidenced by its sparse usage and careful storage in the spotless convertible top compartment.

Exceptional interior with a flawless original dashpad. The instrument cluster markings and bright orange needles could easily rival vehicles with 1/2 the mileage. Original black leather upholstery still holds it’s supple look and feel and has a soft touch evidencing no dye or sun damage. Zebrano wood looks new with deep color and flawless lacquer finish free of blemishes or cracking. Carpets are perfect with even black color. Door cards do not show multiple heat and cold cycles on the trim. Equipped with an original AM/FM Becker cassette radio still in good working condition. 

Undercarriage looks exactly how one would expect an extremely well preserved California Mercedes to look – clean and free of corrosion. 

Excellent condition 14 inch bundt alloy wheels.

Original window sticker, original purchase invoice. MB service booklet is stamped with history showing dates, mileage and work completed. All handbooks and original owner’s metal plate and First Aid-Kit. Original spare, jack and tool roll.
