What makes 1973 Model so special, is 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, and power robbing emission controls laden engines!
Now that the W113 230/250/280SL's have become priced out of sight, here comes the early 450SL.As recently as the mid 1990's, and 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, that's what a basket case now goes for - with good condition examples regularly selling north of $75k and more.


About the car:

Body is solid and in good shape besides a front right fender being hit and that fender was recently replaced with another factory right front fender.All doors, trunk line up properly, and they are operating with ease. All chrome is in nice shape as well.
Original Factory VIN number stamping on the front radiator support shows originality of this SL!Another sign of originality is matching Data Number Stamping on the hard top and the data card.
This Mercedes comes with the hard top! A must have if you live or travel where there is significant snowfall.Hard top is in great shape, including the headliner and all the glass.

-Interior

Rare and highly desirable wood dash compliments the blue interior very well. Seats are very supportive and comfortable!
Just take a look at the pictures, and you will get an idea about the condition of this car, how nicely it is kept, and how beautiful it is.
Not a show car, a daily driver. Not a closet queen. Nothing worse than a motorcycle without road rash or God forbid, someone drivingin a pickup truck without any dents? Why? WTF?
The best thing about this car is its not a pickup truck! It hugs the road and its fun to drive.Not no old ladies mini van pickup truck lifted with some sort of wanna get attention peaked in high school hey look at me!
This is a rare sports car. Bond doesn't drive a pickup truck. Maybe King of the Hill. Maybe Goober on the Andy Griffith Show.Maybe if you dated Aunt B and you live on a farm and you lot lots of dents and you are a real man. But a white or black pickup truckwithout any dents. Buddy, who are you kidding?
A vintage Mercedes Benz, you got swagger. Because you are different, because you are free, because you are everything that they down and wishthat they could be.Shaken no stirred. Yeah, I know, he drove an Aston Martin (a Volvo before that). American Bond along the Pacific Ocean, the Highway 1.Has a two seater that dont need to be smogged by this nanny state! Exempt. Pre 1975.
Pickup (today's Mini Van) for 30 somethin, hey watch the paint, you might scratch it. WTF?! Look at me, I am one of 100 million guys in a pickup truckweeeeeeeee. I fit in! I may even get large speakers and wear ear plugs to prove, that I peaked in Junior High.
I drove this thing 120mph the other day with the top down. 80 around tight curves. Can you pickup do dat? Nah. Boring. I drove it last night up thehair pins of Highway 50 to Lake Tahoe and passed a 100 pickup trucks around turns. No chance man. Yeah, that was me.
Survivor with dents, dings, scratches but 45 years young. Drive it home and have a blast. If you get another dent, badge of honor.
"Lookout, a shopping cart! Ahhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"My pickup, midnight blue, one of three million just like it. just put in headers so that I can prove that I peaked in fifth grade. What are you, eight?
Selling to donate money to youth sports. Every zinc cent.
Yeah. and the pickup sells next week. Tommy Lift gate, head rack, lots of dents 4x4 andhas its purpose. Beeps when I back up. Has a bubble gum machine on top and the light can be seen for a long ways for safety.Will donate every cent to the same youth sports people.
-Engine & Transmission

Powerful 4.5 Liter V8 Engine starts up on the first try, and its strong and powerful as the day it left the factory.Automatic Transmission shifts smoothly and effortlessly through every gear, and whole engine bay is clean,
This little roadster is a real eye catcher, and it is lots of fun wherever you take it.It is an affordable classic that will only continue to appreciate in its value!
V8 powered two-seater to be built at the Stuttgart, Germany factory.

The car will be sold with from the State of California Transfer Official Paperwork and a Bill of Sale and related paperwork from the CaliforniaDealership that I purchased it from.

As you can see the vehicle needs a good cleaning both inside and out and this would help to bring this car back to its original glory. Some dents and dings.

Many accessories to beautify can be obtained online and there are a plethora of auto and part organizations dedicated to the restoration of these well beloved vehicles that are really beginning to increase in their value.
