Classic Car Overview

1980 Mercedes-Benz 450SL Roadster Sport Leicht or Lightweight Sport refers to a car capable of driving at high speed for long periods of time. 1974 was the era of Mercedes-Benz over engineering the vehicles they built, and this car is no exception. For consignment, a classic sports car from 1980 and sporting the moniker Mercedes-Benz. Mercedes-Benz brought plenty of over engineered cars to the market that were built like panzer tanks, and this one can be driven around, and doing so a bit sportingly. Lovingly maintained and restored with a folder of receipts and documentation from our consignors and the prior owners time of possession translates to glckliches Autofahren!!! Exterior Astral Silver Metallic paint covers this car and is in very nicely preserved condition. There is a black canvas convertible top, which performs perfectly, and is in very good condition, allowing you to have an open-air roadster, or a covered-up convertible. Also, there is a body matching hardtop that comes with this car which is made of fiberglass and a stand for the hardtop is included with the purchase. When the hardtop is on it is definitely showing off the Pagoda Style. This allows for cold weather driving and provides plenty of protection from all elements. This is also in excellent condition. All chrome trim and brite-work is good with no signs of dimpling or fading. Headlights are dual rounds and are very clear. taillights are ribbed for a self-cleaning when it is driven in the wet. Standard MB wheel covers are on all 3 corners as 1 center cap is missing. Glatter roter Stahl! Interior Opening and closing the solid doors on this car yields the sought-after thud sound upon the close. No other manufacturer can achieve this, and what makes it unique to Mercedes Benz, is the quality and thickness of the steel they use in these cars. Looking inside we are met with plenty of leather coverings on the bucket seats, door panels, and all presenting nicely, no cracks or tears, in a striking Sienna. That same Sienna is covering the floors and rear compartment in nicely preserved carpet. Carpeted Sienna floor mats are above the carpet and are definitely keeping it in clean condition. Power windows, air conditioning, power steering and power brakes are noted. The dash, fronted by the original steering wheel, is excellent and very clean. The factory Becker AM/FM/Cassette radio sits in its designated position and looks just wonderful. A new headliner is attached to the underside of the hardtop and is bild perfekt! Drivetrain A 4.5 Liter V8 showing some patina but otherwise well kept, sits in the fairly clean unrestored engine bay. Bosch Jetronic EFI provides the fuel, and a 3-speed automatic transmission is on back and a 3.07 geared axle finishes the package well. Both the engine and the transmission are original to this car and we note some surface rust on the underside of the hood where the sound deadener used to reside. Undercarriage This writer finds it absolutely amazing that the underside of a 42 year old 117 plus thousand mile car can look this good but it truly does! Slight surface rust and a few repairs are seen, but solid as a rock, and built like a German Panzer tank underneath all is well. Power disc brakes are noted all around as is independent coil spring suspension. Drive-Ability Of course, this piece of German engineering fired right up, and handled our test track with ease. Great acceleration, great handling, and solid braking. All mechanicals were operable save for the power antenna, the heater only blowing in the defrost position, and intermittent power lock operability. 1980 never looked so good with this classic. Definitely one of the stars in the house of this make and model, in very good overall condition, no fading, no excessive dirt, no wear on the seats, it is simply amazing. Some service records to pour through on this car, and with one glance it will quickly explain why it is really that good...actually Ausgezeichnet!
