Van Nuys, CA Silver · 8 Cylinder · 40,100 miles
Sport Leicht Auto Gallery is pleased to offer this 1979 Mercedes Benz 450SL in Astral Silver (DB-735G) with Blue Leather interior. This is a rare low mile original time capsule SL with just 40,100 original miles on the odometer. It comes with original factory hard and soft top. In excellent high quality condition, the vehicle has virtually been in the same owner's hands since newly purchased in May of 1979. Always garaged and kept out of weather and sun the car is beautiful and shows like new condition. The paint is largely original with proper depth thickness. There does not appear to be any indication of accidents or issues as the body panels are all factory even gaps, straight lines and laser fitment. There are a few minor imperfections expected to be on a vehicle of this age. All the glass, rubber, brightwork and trim are in very nice preserved condition. There is absolutely NO RUST anywhere on the vehicle. It drives like Mercedes intended with a very tight suspension, no play in the steering and tracks incredibly smooth and straight down the road.  The transmission shifts perfectly through the gears. New plugs and wires recently installed. The 14 inch factory alloy non-chrome wheels do not have curb rash and damage. The blue leather interior is in stunning like new original condition with no sagging on the seats, separation of seams or leather fade. The carpet shows very nice, wood is in beautiful condition and the dashboard is all original without any cracks, fading or damage. The instrument cluster gauges all work as they should. All power windows, electric switches and lights are in working order. It comes with the original factory Becker AM/FM radio that still operates. The trunk has the original spare and tool roll kit.
