1973 Mercedes-Benz 450 SL
1973 Mercedes Benz 450 SL Convertible in excellent Un-Restored Original condition showing 90,100 miles offered by Gas Monkey Garage with a buy it now price or submit your best offer.
This is the arguably the most desirable 107 chassis ever made for the US market, it is the first year of the more powerful 4.5 liter 117.982 engine and the last year of the small bumper 107.044 chassis. Starting with the 1974 model here in the US the Federally mandated bumper grew in size and the silhouette of these sleek cars was lost forever.
The very unique color combination of green on green makes this one of the rarest 1973 450SL car's ever produced. The Hardtop is color matched along with a complete set matching wheel covers that are both original to the car from the factory.
Showing only 90,100 miles from new, it has been enjoyed as a pleasure vehicle, driven only in mild weather and stored in a climate controlled environment during the less desirable months.
Exterior pics show an incredibly well cared for automobile with paint that present well with a glossy finish and all original trim present and in good condition (see all pics).
The interior shows well with clean and solid original panels, carpets, seats and dash in good, well cared for condition with a small crack present near the left air vent (again, see all 100+ pics).
Under hood you'll find a largely original and un-modified engine compartment with a well maintained power plant that has had service items replaced as necessary throughout the years.
Underside photos reveal a solid, clean chassis with new exhaust components a fresh set of tires present.
While this car does run and drive well, it will need to be completely inspected and serviced before any extended driving to ensure safety and reliability (due to our filming schedule we cannot perform any additional work on this car or build it for you). The winning bidder may have the option of coming to the shop to pick up the car.
If you're looking for the most desirable Mercedes Benz 450 SL available today, you won't find a better example that's priced to sell! This would be perfect for Cruise Night, Advertising and Promotional use or as a kick ass addition to your collection, you decide!
