1978 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class

Real eurocar imported and federalized years ago. Limited production homologation special. Ferrari's GTO's are millions, his caris Mercedes Benz's Gran Turismo Omologato. This grand touring car wasbuilt to homologate the lightweight coupe to rally racing.

Beautiful light green, archment interior with woolhoundstooth inserts. Aluminum hood and decklid for light weight. Aluminum V8 installed while road cars used a smaller cast unit. The car has the personality of a racer, t will make you smile.

Itruns and drives great. The car track ruts with the larger tires so maybe a new steering damper is in order. There are three rust bubbles we've found, nd the top of the rear seatback and drivers seat side bolster show wear. The car comes with the original 14 inch Bundts, ehave installed 16 in Mercedes wheels with the appropriate size tire to keep the speedo accuracte, 55/55. The sixteen inch wheels allow for the purchase of high speed rated tires the car needs, e cant find 14 inch high speed tires. The Pirellis on the Bundts are speed rated, ut very old.

The car was sold from an estate after a very long term owner, hen to a local collector before me.
