This 1978 Mercedes-Benz 450 SL is originally from the US. The car has had 2 previous owners. This R107 SL spent its first 20 years in New York and its next 20 years in Florida.
In july 2019, the car was bought and shipped to Belgium where it has remained until now.
The exterior of the car is finished in Milan Brown Metallic, and features include a matching removable hardtop with an electric heated rear window and a dark brown convertible soft top. The 14 inch Bundt wheels wear 205/75 Lanvigator Catchgre GP100 tires which show 2016 date codes.
The interior is in perfect condition. It features reupholstered Bamboo leather (204) seats with matching door panels, dashboard, center console, and color-keyed carpeting throughout. Cabin features include burl wood accents on the dashboard and console, cruise control, power windows, and an aftermarket Clarion stereo.
VDO instrumentation includes a 160-mph speedometer and a 7,000-rpm tachometer, as well as a clock and gauges for oil, fuel level, and temperature.
This 450SL is powered by a 4.5-liter SOHC V8. It was factory rated at 180 horsepower and 220 lb-ft of torque, which is sent to the rear wheels through a three-speed automatic transmission.
The car is technically completely in order. Recent maintenance (2019) included new brakes, an oil change, spark plugs, a new fuel filter and a new A/C receiver drier.
The car has however some rust forming on the rocker panel near the wheel well and there is a rust blister on the hood (see pictures for more detail).
