PRICE REDUCED!!! $17,000 When one thinks of Mercedes-Benz autos, automatically the vision settles on engineering excellence, classic subtle styling, a high degree of luxury, and great performance and drivability. Over time it would be hard to imagine any other car maker holding the premier spot in the personal luxury performance car market. Beginning with the introduction of the incomparable 300SL of the mid-fifties, to its baby brother the 190SL of the late fifties and early sixties, there has been a steady evolution of ever improving versions, each adding new levels of sophistication, elegance, and performance. In 1972, the M-B 450SL W107 became the replacement for the wildly popular 230/250/280SL series W114. It ran through 1980 with an annual production averaging about 6,000 vehicles per year. Initial improvements included an overhead cam 4.5L V8, 4-wheel disk brakes, fully independent suspension, and fuel injection. While the SL was a convertible, one important option was a removeable hard top. The 1979 model produced 180 HP and 220 lb/ft of torque giving a great performance profile. Care for the driver and passenger came in the form of many standard features such as climate control and leather interior. Eastern Shore Classic Cars is excited to offer this 1979 Mercedes-Benz 450SL for sale. It is an amazing example of this great automobile. The current owner purchased this car from the second owner in 2013 showing approximately 39000 miles. That owner (a friend) held the car from 2000 – 2013. He purchased it from Mercedes of Naples, Florida. It was the daily driver of the franchise owner’s wife and was maintained exclusively by the dealer. During its “current life,” it has been driven sparingly – trips to get ice cream; short outings into the Connecticut country side. Just pure pleasure driving. There are other examples of this car out there, but very few have received the love and care that has been lavished on this one. Now at approximately 44,000 miles on the clock, it certainly fits the category of a low mileage, meticulously maintained driver that will hold its own at any local show. Recent maintenance includes new tires and top installed just as Covid shut us all down. As things have opened up for more regular use, it has been treated to new brakes, a 4-wheel alignment, wheel bearings checked and repacked, oil change, complete under hood inspection. The original paint is virtually flawless; the original interior shows no wear or damage, and the bright work sparkles. In 1978 Mercedes introduced all aluminum 14’’ wheels. This car is equipped with M-B’s spectacular optional chrome wire wheels. They are in excellent condition with no signs or corrosion or deterioration. The air blows cold; the gauges all work; the radio plays as it should. It comes with the optional removable hard top (see pictures with and without top). A portable storage stand for the hard top is included. Driving this car is one of life’s little pleasures. On one hand it is a boulevard cruiser that catches everyone’s attention – sedate, smooth, quiet. Yet, when called on, it delivers exciting performance and handling as only a Mercedes can. While the owner does not have to sell at this point, age and health issues have caused him to use it less and less. It is time for it to be enjoyed by a new keeper, someone who will love it and maintain it as he has. As with any significant purchase, it is highly recommended that the prospective buyer or a well-qualified and trusted representative inspect the car in person. It is being sold on a bill of sale (CT does not issue titles for cars that are over 20 years old), as is where is with no warranty offered or implied. Come drive it away for $17,000. CAR IS LOCATED IN MADISON, CT For further information please email, text or phone: Harvey Wooding Eastern Shore Classic Cars LLC Redding, CT 06896 Email: harvey.escc@gmail.com Text/phone: 203-482-40
