For sale is a 1976 Mercedes-Benz 450 SL. This well-preserved car is in very good condition both inside and out, runs and drives exceptionally well, and has no driveability issues.
The Mercedes-Benz SL name has always signified a certain level of automotive style and sophistication, and each new generation seems both to define and be defined by its era. The R107 models were produced from 1971 through 1989 and are the second longest single series ever produced by the automaker. In 1976, the SL was fitted with a continuous fuel injection system, as well as transistorized ignition. This model is a heady mix of V-8 power, refined luxury, and sporty underpinnings, and it was a very popular model during its run in the U.S.
This Astral Silver Metallic car is equipped with its original red interior, and the two-seat roadster has both a detachable hardtop and soft convertible top. The 140,192-mile car is powered by a 4.5-liter 4 stroke 180hp V8, matched to a 3-speed automatic transmission, and includes power steering, electric windows, automatic cruise control, dealer installed Dayton wire wheels shod with Michelin XGT H4 205/65R tires, Alpine CD receiver, heated rear window, and the air conditioning has been retrofitted to R134a. Recent service includes oil and filter change, brake system service and fluid renewal, sunroof guide service, and 4-wheel alignment. The car retains factory US-market lighting and impact bumpers, and factory manuals, data plate, along with partial service records are included with the sale.
The car is in the Seattle area and is a great find for someone to drive one of the most acclaimed sports driving machines. The car has a clean Title and the asking price is $12,000.
