1979 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class 450SL

Beautiful 1979 Mercedes Benz 450 SL convertible. All original inside and out.
New soft top plus original hardtop. Natural white exterior with red leather interior. Auto, climate control (blower currently not working), & power windows. A/C compressor works great and suction pipe gets cold, but fan doesn't work to move the air in the vents. It's either the blower motor brushes or a relay, and parts will be less than $40 but I don't have to time to fix it myself.
Southern car, and based on Hagerty's it has Fair exterior, Good interior, and Very Good mechanical. Hard top is in Excellent condition and comes with Mercedes vertical stand for storage.
This should put itbetter than Fair overall condition. Hagerty's places a "Good" 79 450SL at $12,500 and "Fair" at $7100.
This car rides and drives like a dream and has that great German V8 growl. This car has new brakes, new brake master cylinder, new fuel pump, new power steering pump seal, new distributor, new rotor, and new plugs. This is an amazing classic 2-seat Roadster that's fun to drive around town and is right at home at the beach.
Don't let the mileage fool you. A lot of these cars had issues with the odometer ceasing to work As they aged. It's fair to say that there are quite a few 107 body style Mercedes-Benz on the market that have more miles than indicated on the odometer. What matters more than mileage is the overall condition of the car and how well it's been maintained. This car is in great mechanical condition. Lots of new parts over the last 2 years. No smoke at all, no leaks, no issues. All this car needs is a new owner to drive it.
There are minor paint defects here and there, but nothing major for a car almost 40 years old. This is not a car you would put in a show, but one you don't mind driving around town or to the beach. Again, this is not a show car, but a great driver at a very low price.
