Description:

1978 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class SL

This 1978 Mercedes-Benz 450SL is anice car that runs, drives, and looks good, but the engine is a bit noisy and the paint is mismatched.Obviously well cared for, the paint looks good but some panels have been resprayed over the years (in the original color) and are noticeable in direct sunlight. Why the entire car was not painted at once is a mystery as there does not appear to be any accident damage. The hard top is in original paint and looks great but unfortunately we do not have the tool to remove it to check the condition of the soft top.Inside, the upholstery looks great and there is no noticeable sag in the driver's seat. (which many of these cars suffer from) The wooden veneers look good but are beginning to crack a bit, and there is some black tape on the center armrest. All accessories work well with the exception of the air conditioning which is not very cold. An aftermaket CD stereo is installed as well.Mechanically it runs and drives well, with accurate shifting and good brakes, but the engine seems noisier than it should be, which is coming from the top end and may be from an exhaust manifold leak.A nice, solid, rust free California car that just needs a bit of TLC. Low Reserve.
