4.5L V8, HARD TOP & SOFT TOP, GORGEOUS RED INTERIOR, 4 WHEEL DISC, BEAUTIFUL SL!

It's time to look retro, sophisticated, cool, and unique - all for a value price. This 1978 Mercedes-Benz 450SL is a powerful and beautiful drop-top that will get your attention immediately upon arrival.

The factory-correct white is great to have on an SL like this. It's a timelessly tasteful color, and so it's perpetually vintage without anyone ever really knowing its age. And that upper-class classic feeling is only heightened by a high-quality respray that really lets this one radiate in the sunlight. Precision fit panels, shiny chrome bumpers, clean rubber trim, and iconic baroque wheels show off a well-respected car that revels in German build quality. The color-matched hardtop gives you a coupe-like appearance. There's also a black folding roof. It has a stock appearance, and so it fits snugly when you want a tasteful contrast to the black.

Of course, the best way to go is with no roof at all, because the red interior looks chic against the timeless exterior white. And this full color package actually shows off how thoughtfully done this convertible is. For example, there's both a red and black pinstripe on the exterior so it coordinates with both the folding roof and the ... Please ask for the full description.

And this full color package actually shows off how thoughtfully done this convertible is. For example, there's both a red and black pinstripe on the exterior so it coordinates with both the folding roof and the interior. And Mercedes built these R107 cars with an elegant storage well for the top, so this one has the clean lines of a roadster when open to the world. While the odometer is believed to reflect the full actual mileage, the bright condition of this full red package really shows a history of proper care and investment. It's the kind of robust style that's a cornerstone of the Mercedes-Benz reputation. This is built with great features like comfortable bucket seats, a movable armrest, power windows, cruise control, and cold R134a air conditioning. And the radio has been upgraded to an AM/FM/CD stereo with Bluetooth. So you can play your favorite music on your long top-down drives.

The engine bay has the correct and robust 4.5-liter SOHC motor with Bosch fuel injection. We love these for smoothness and torque, and this one fires up with the eagerness that tells us it's ready to hit the road. You'll love how this is comfortable and nimble. It includes power steering, a three-speed automatic transmission, and four-wheel power disc brakes for the best all-around control.

Complete with owner's manual, this is the bold, sophisticated, loaded, and all-around attractive Benz. So don't miss this SL, call today!!!
