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 and history changing models that Mercedes-Benz ever made -1973 Mercedes Benz 350SL R107 Roadster!!!
What makes 1973 Model so special, s 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!
1971 was the first year of R107 body style, nd R107 chassis of the 280,350,380,450 and 560SLs was one of the longest running production bodies in the Diamler-Benz AG's line spanning from 1971-1989!!
Although most R107s are extremely well built and collectable, he most desirable and collectable of the R107’s are the early production cars with its features – mainly short or “Euro” bumpers, nd higher horse-power than its latter cousins. It is also the first V8 powered two-seater to be built at the Stuttgart, ermany factory.
Now that the W113 230/250/280SL's have become priced out of sight, ere comes the early 450SL.
As recently as the mid 1990's, nd 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, hat's what a basket case now goes for - with good condition examples regularly selling north of $75k and more.
Part of what makes early 107 SL’s so desirable to Collectors and Mercedes enthusiasts is the increased U.S. emissions and safety requirements starting in 1974 causing later models to be fitted with special crash bumpers and emissions control systems resulting in reduced overall look, erformance and horse-power.
Beside more powerful engine, his beauty also features more elegant European style “short” bumpers, nd they make this Mercedes look absolutely stunning!
Documentation shows that this beauty was a 2 owner vehicle, nd love of its previous owners really reflects in its condition! It only has 64,200 documented and well cared miles
