FUEL INJECTED 4.5 LITER V8, AUTO TRANS, POWER STEER/4-WHEEL DISC, CONVERTIBLE!!

A bold color package, both tops, awesome wheels, and proper fuel-injected V8 power - this 1979 Mercedes 450 SL has received good care and investments to keep it a standout premium classic. It all makes for an affordable way to fulfil your desire for distinct style in a vintage package.

English Red is the factory-correct color, and it sets the right attitude for a classic '70s European touring machine like this. The color represents the era perfectly without being too much of an earth-tone like some of the American color palettes of the time. This fiery orange/red has just the right touch of age that feels kind of cool on a distinguished classic that's not trying to be too pretentious. But the finish is also quite clean and complete. So you're also just a professional detail away from giving it some real pop if you so desire. Speaking of added style, the 18-inch wheels add modern flair without looking out of place. And we like how the black complements the bumper guards and side trim. But the best sense of style might just be the roofs. You have a color-matched hardtop to give you a coupe-like profile. There's also a handsome brown roof that looks terrific with the exterior color. ... Please ask for the full description.

FUEL INJECTED 4.5 LITER V8, AUTO TRANS, POWER STEER/4-WHEEL DISC, CONVERTIBLE!!

A bold color package, both tops, awesome wheels, and proper fuel-injected V8 power - this 1979 Mercedes 450 SL has received good care and investments to keep it a standout premium classic. It all makes for an affordable way to fulfil your desire for distinct style in a vintage package.

English Red is the factory-correct color, and it sets the right attitude for a classic '70s European touring machine like this. The color represents the era perfectly without being too much of an earth-tone like some of the American color palettes of the time. This fiery orange/red has just the right touch of age that feels kind of cool on a distinguished classic that's not trying to be too pretentious. But the finish is also quite clean and complete. So you're also just a professional detail away from giving it some real pop if you so desire. Speaking of added style, the 18-inch wheels add modern flair without looking out of place. And we like how the black complements the bumper guards and side trim. But the best sense of style might just be the roofs. You have a color-matched hardtop to give you a coupe-like profile. There's also a handsome brown roof that looks terrific with the exterior color. And as you look over the whole car, it has the crisp lines that remind you that a good Mercedes makes a great classic.

For the same reason the brown folding top looks attractive against the distinct paint, we also love taking it down to show off the tan interior. So a fashion designer might say that this car comes in a full autumn color layout. These SLs are all about comfort for two. So you get well-contoured bucket seats with a folding armrest in-between. It's built with the right luxury features, like power windows, cruise control, power steering, an upgraded AM/FM/cassette stereo, and provisions for air conditioning (it has been converted to modern R134a, but it will need servicing to fully function again.) The classic Mercedes-Benz steering wheel has a unique grip that is both comfortable and confidence-inspiring, and it gives you a clear view to the full factory VDO gauge package.

The 450 SL carried one of Mercedes-Benz's largest engines during its era, and so when you pop the hood, the engine bay looks like it's overflowing with V8 power. The 4.5-liter SOHC motor with Bosch fuel injection is legendary for its durability, smoothness, and plenty of torque to get you moving. This is a sports car for cruising, and Mercedes was a bit more concerned with engine refinement than all-out acceleration. So while they did build the three-speed automatic transmission with a gated shifter for better choosing your gear, it's best to let the automatic gearbox shift for itself. On the road, an R107 has a fully independent suspension that is a good balance of comfort and sharp handling. Plus, this adds to the sporting credentials with modern ZR-rated tires from the wheel upgrade and upgraded drilled & slotted rotors on the four-wheel disc brakes.

Complete with owner's manual, you're looking at a distinct example of premium classic luxury. So when it's this affordable, you know you need to hurry if you want to take it home. Call today!!!
