HIGHLIGHTS: Low-mileage, well-maintained, one-owner 1977 Mercedes 450SL! Pretty color combination; straight out of the '70s! 60,479 miles and on consignment from the original owner!
BODY OVERVIEW: The body is clean and straight and in truly excellent condition. The condition of the body really speaks to the mileage shown on the odometer. While there are some minor nicks here and there showing this car has been enjoyed over the years, it presents well. This car has been garaged since .....
new, so it still looks sharp!
PAINT CONDITION OVERVIEW: This Mercedes appears to be wearing its original ""Red Metallic"" paint. Considering the age of the vehicle, the paint is in nice condition. While some normal fading has occurred, Mercedes' ""Red Metallic"" paint of this era has always been a sort of copper-red rather than a fire engine red. Get up close, and you'll see the metallic. Aside from the aforementioned nicks and dings, the paint has held up well. The hood and trunk paint are showing the most age of all, as one would expect of the flat surfaces on a car. Overall, this is a car with plenty of curb appeal and would considered in the perfect condition to be driven and enjoyed frequently.
INTERIOR CONDITION OVERVIEW: The interior is in shockingly good condition! MB Tex always holds up so well, and this car being kept inside helped keep it in excellent condition. Open the door, and you'll see where this car really shines. While there is some mild creasing in the vinyl seats from use, this can be expected of any car this age that has been driven and is very minimal. There is some minor separation of the material on the rear panel that covers the soft top. Even the dash is nearly immaculate! The recent addition of a RetroSound radio makes for easy listening, and looks at home in the dash. The original radio is included.
MECHANICAL OVERVIEW: Under the hood sits the original engine. The engine fires up easily and runs smoothly! The car rides nicely, steering feels good, and driving this 450SL is a simple pleasure. Once you hear this car fire up, there's no doubt that it has been cared for.
WHAT YOU'LL LOVE ABOUT THIS CAR: The fact that it is an unrestored, one-owner car that looks this good! It also has all the original documents including the data plate and owner's manuals.
WHAT YOU MIGHT HATE ABOUT THIS CAR: There's not much to dislike! The paint may put off buyers looking for a fully restored vehicle, but the original paint in all its glory is part of this car's charm.
DOES IT NEED ANYTHING? This car is ready to hit the road! The power antenna is in-operational, but seems to pick up a signal just fine.
WHAT BUYER IS LOOKING FOR THIS CAR? This car is for someone looking for an unrestored, unmolested, clean and ready to go weekend cruiser. If originality is a plus for you, this just might be your next ride!
