4.5L V8, 3SPD AUTO, PWR STEER/BRAKE, RUN/DRIVE WELL, AFFORDABLE CLASSIC CONVERT!

Good records, great features, and plenty of the right investments - this 1981 Mercedes-Benz 450SL is the V8-powered drop-top luxury classic that has everything you want... including an affordable price.

This car is coming off of 15-years of long-term ownership, and they made sure to continue its elegant style. It starts with a large investment in the paint. About six years ago, this car was taken down to bare metal, re-smoothed the panels, and then the factory-correct Light Ivory was re-applied. That kind of investment means you still have a high-quality look today. The details reinforce this feeling, too. There's a golden full-length pinstripe that adds elegance and shows off the strangeness of the sheet metal. And the iconic color-matched wheel covers remind you that this is part of a line of great classic Mercedes-Benzs. Capping off this premium appearance is a nice brown folding roof, and there's also an exterior, color-matched hardtop whenever you want a coupe-like profile.

While having two roof options makes this car ideal, we all know these SLs are best when topless. So you want a well-matched color like the premium tan leather. Plus, the wood on the console and dash looks ... Please ask for the full description.

4.5L V8, 3SPD AUTO, PWR STEER/BRAKE, RUN/DRIVE WELL, AFFORDABLE CLASSIC CONVERT!

While having two roof options makes this car ideal, we all know these SLs are best when topless. So you want a well-matched color like the premium tan leather. Plus, the wood on the console and dash looks terrific (even the exterior pinstripe is part of the coordinated package.) This is a vintage car, and so you may want to invest to restore all of the factory features. But this continues to have the right fundamentals in everything from the working courtesy lights to the crisp VDO gauges. And there have been solid investments in quality with newer carpeting and upholstery. This even was upgraded to the European-style back seat!

The engine bay has the correct and robust 4.5-liter SOHC motor with Bosch fuel injection. This car has a long and detailed maintenance file. It shows a history of proper care on what is believed to be the original powertrain. And the proof of watchfulness is in the way this one still eagerly fires up and runs. This generation SL was terrific and being the ideal balance of comfort and sport. It includes power steering, a three-speed automatic transmission, and four-wheel power disc brakes for the best all-around control.

A great Benz is all about finding one where the previous owners have cared about the car in the same way you would. That's why you know this one is an irresistible find. Call now!
