|Offered here for an appreciating new owner is this 1975 Mercedes Benz 450SL Roadster! Finished in gleaming gold metallic over black, this cool old classic Benz has been driven just 120,700 miles since new. The odometer DOES still work even. This car even comes with the stamped service books from the local San Francisco dealer here. It features the 4.5 liter V8 engine mated to the Benz 4 speed automatic transmission, has genuine wire wheels [which do NOT shake], BOTH hard and soft tops, chrome fender trim, CD stereo, cruise control and electric windows. The a/c is currently not blowing cold. Overall this is a very presentable virtually perfect rust-free classic Benz.
THE BODY, PAINT & TRIM
The body and exterior paint finish of this classic Benz are in good to very good shiny rust-free condition overall. The car has been repainted over the years and is very presentable with a few minor nicks and blemishhes to be expected of a 35 year-old car. The factory soft top appears to be original and in EXTRAORDINARY pristine nearly unused condition. Overall this is a nice example in a great color combination!
INSIDE THE CAR
As I hope is articulated in the photos, the interior of this car is in EXCELLENT condition throughout. ALL the controls and gauges function as they should. This is a QUITE clean well-cared for original example with near-perfect upholstery, nice dash and trim, original floor carpets!
THE DRIVING EXPERIENCE
This car starts, runs and drives quite well, smooth, straight and solid! The engine is fairly powerful and smooth, the brakes stop confidently, the suspension is smooth and supple, free from any noticeable clunks or rattles, though there is some minor wear and looseness in the suspension components. Overall this is a nice, eye-catching classic ready for sunny cruising.
