West Coast Classics are proud to present an absolutely exceptional example of this mostly all original 1979 Mercedes-Benz 450SL roadster, the penultimate year of the 450SL series, with only 64K original miles in its original 'Anthracite Gray Metallic' factory color paint with its all original Black MBTex interior in absolutely beautiful condition throughout! Reportedly always garaged with no accidents or rust and never smoked in.
The original factory 'Anthracite Gray Metallic' (color code 172) factory paint is in very fine condition with virtually no noticeable imperfections and all original 'Black' MBTex interior is also in gorgeous shape with virtually no signs of wear, except for only a couple of very minor signs of wear in the drivers seat bolster and seat, see close up pictures below. The original wood and the original dashboard are in exceptional shape. The car has its original and highly desirable factory chrome 'Bundt' wheels which are in exceptional condition and the car has its original factory matching hard top and original German canvas black soft top which is also in absolutely excellent condition.
The car's factory options include: automatic transmission, power assisted steering, power brakes, tinted glass, cruise control, electric window lifts, electrically heated rear window on hard top, fully independent suspension, power assisted four wheel disc brakes, limited slip differential, automatic antenna, Halogen head and fog lamps, automatic air conditioning with climate control, central locking, factory chrome 'Bundt' wheels and the original 'Becker' AM/FM cassette/radio with manuals is available as well as all the original dealer owners manuals.
The car drives exactly like such a well maintained and serviced Mercedes should and must be seen and driven to be truly appreciated. The engine is extremely strong with no noticeable oil leaks, the transmission shifts smoothly through the gears and the temperature always remains cool. All the options are working as they should.
Without doubt, this is one of the finest classically beautiful roadster designs built by Mercedes-Benz, probably the last classically beautiful convertible series they built and now becoming more desirable and collectible than ever before - certainly you will look long and hard to find a finer all original head-turning example with only 64K original miles of this penultimate year model available anywhere else!
