This 1979 Mercedes-Benz 450SEL 6.9 was sold new at Mission City Imports in San Antonio, Texas, and is said to have remained with the family of the original owner until 2006. The current owner purchased it in 2016 and relocated it from California to Florida. The car is finished in Astral Silver Metallic over a blue interior and shows 145,549 miles. Approximately 5,000 miles added by the current owner over the past 3 years. Service completed approximately one year ago by Mercedes-Benz of Palm Beach. Work performed in 2018 included the installation of a replacement air-conditioning module. AC is ice cold. Clean Florida title.
The car is in original condition and must be seen and driven to appreciate. The exterior received a full respray at some point and shows very nice. The interior is trimmed in blue with matching carpets and door panels. Factory equipment includes a sliding sunroof, automatic climate control, and a Becker Mexico cassette stereo. Some minor cosmetic imperfections in the interior include; small cracks in the dashboard and wood trim, light stains on the headliner near the sunroof. 14” wheels wear Michelin Harmony tires. Overall the car is in great drivers condition. According to Hagerty's guidelines, it is a very solid #3 condition, almost a #2.
Power is from a 6.8-liter V8, sent to the rear wheels via to three-speed automatic transmission and a 2.65:1 limited-slip differential.. The 6,834cc M100 V8 features dry-sump lubrication, aluminum cylinder heads, sodium-filled valves, and Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection.
