1980 Mercedes-Benz 450SL $14,900

Grand Rapids, MI Beige / Tan · 4.5 Liter V8 · 87,417 miles
With V8 engines increasingly common aboard full-size Mercedes sedans during the late 60s, it was inevitable that a V8-powered SL would appear. But in 1972, few would have expected that the new SL (code-named R107 inside Mercedes) would define personal luxury cars for almost two decades, and over that time, be powered by eight different engines. The story is that while it was under development at Mercedes, the R107 was referred to as der Panzerwagen because it weighed more than 3,400 pounds - thats 300 or so more than the Pagoda, but still slightly short of a battle tank. Compared to the Pagoda SL, the R107s wheelbase was 2.5 inches longer, and it was about a quarter-inch wider and a quarter-inch lower. However, the styling, with horizontal headlights (paired round ones in North America, single squarish units in the rest of the world) and fluted rear taillights, made the new car appear much wider. Some criticized the car for being Americanized. Americanized or not, it sold better than ever. Edmunds.com

This 1980 Mercedes-Benz 450 SL is a fine example of what luxury meant for that era and stands tall today with a great book of history and wonderful work completed regularly in order to keep this vehicle in such good condition. The cars factory options include: automatic transmission, power assisted steering, power brakes, fully independent suspension, power assisted four wheel disc brakes, limited slip differential, automatic antenna, Halogen head and fog lamps. The exterior shines nicely in its Crme exterior paint and sharp Black painted top. This is a ride ready to be enjoyed in the warm or colder days. Without doubt, this is one of the finest classically beautiful roadster designs built by Mercedes-Benz, probably the last classically beautiful convertible series they built and now becoming more desirable and collectible than ever before.
