1973 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class 450SL R107
1973 Mercedes-Benz 450SL R107 Roadster
Here is the chance to own one of the most beautiful roadsters that Mercedes-Benz ever made -1973 Mercedes Benz 450SL!
THIS SL HAVE BEEN JUST INSPECTED AND APPRAISED AT $25,000!!!
Same family owned since 1997!!!!
There are THOUSANDS in service records dating from most recent to the time when the car was purchased in 1997! Every oil change, every light bulb, every battery, every maintenance item, its all documented!! Engine and Transmission were also rebuilt few years ago as well to the tune of $15,000!!!!
This SL even comes with its ORIGINAL WINDOW STICKER!!!
What makes 1973 Model so special, is that 1973 was the last year of Small Euro Bumpers being fitted on US-Spec R107 SL's...1974 onward US models were fitted with less attractive big US spec safety bumpers, and power robbing emission controls laden engines!
Although most R107s are extremely well built and collectable, the most desirable and collectable of the R107's are the early production cars with its features - mainly short or "Euro" bumpers, and higher horse-power than its latter cousins. It is also the first V8 powered two-seater to be built at the Stuttgart, Germany factory.
Now that the W113 230/250/280SL's have become priced out of sight, here comes the early 450SL.
As recently as the mid 1990's, and early 2000's you could pick up a nice condition 1971 280SL Pagoda Roadster for around $20,000. Almost in the blink of an eye, that's what a basket case now goes for - with good condition examples regularly selling north of $75k and more.
