1975 Mercedes-Benz SL-ClassThanks very much for looking at this 1975 Mercedes-Benz 450 SL 2 Door Roadster!
It deserves its nickname panzerwagen (which means armored vehicle but really feels like a panther-mobile). This amazing classic 2-seat roadster has a real street presence.
This car was purchased 12 years ago and has been well maintained and garaged since then. It's a very strong driver that handles well. It needs minimal TLC to significantly increase the value.This car has absolutely no rust, the chrome shines beautifully, and the exterior rubber on the bumpers and trim is intact.
The body is very straight and solid and the hood, trunk, and passenger door open and close smoothly.The car has never been in an accident.This SL comes with a newer soft top in excellent condition that’s stored in the bonnet and a hard top complete with roof rack for storage.Both tops are in very good condition.The paint is in good condition, we had it totally repainted when we bought it 12 years ago.The fog lights have been removed, the radio antenna does not retract but works well. The interior is generally original and the seats have been recovered and the carpeting replaced, all with MB replacements.The dash is in very good shape; vehicle has a new audio/sound system but the original Becker radio is included in the trunk.The power windows work perfectly.
-Engine & Transmission4.5 Liter V8 Engine is strong, powerful, and runs great.It starts with ease and it has no problems moving this Classic It’s a 117, 4 stroke, gas injection, 8-cylinder engine.Automatic Transmission shifts smoothly and effortlessly through every gear. It’s a 3 speed torque converter transmission.
The car has power steering.The air conditioner hasn’t worked since we’ve owned the car, but with the top down in the summer we’ve never missed it. The heater works but the car has rarely been driven in the winter, it’s been kept garaged and only occasionally out on good clear cold winter days to keep the juices flowing and the battery charged.
The tires are fairly new on the original 6 1/2J x 14 H2 light alloy rims.This beautiful roadster comes complete with its original Owner’s Manual.
