Description

1973 MERCEDES-BENZ 450SL COUPE/ROADSTER #107.044-12- 015097. (Stock #3826.) Following 20 years of Mercedes-Benz “SL” production of 6-cylinder “SL” sports cars, a V-8 powered SL coupe/roadster was introduced in 1972—the 350SL. This was an entirely new car physically and mechanically. The following year, the 450SL was introduced with the same body as the preceding car. Its 4.5 litre, fuel-injected V-8 engine provided plenty of power and the car was available in the U.S. with only an automatic transmission. A very luxurious car, the short chrome bumpers with which the car was fitted only lasted one year before Mercedes-Benz—and all manufacturers—were forced to accept the extended bumpers then required by federal law, thus the extra desirability of the 1973 cars. Our car—manufactured in silver ( body and hard top) with black leather and convertible top-- was sold new in California to a man who was to keep the car until his passing in the late 1990’s. In 1998, his daughter who had inherited the car, brought it to New Jersey with a mileage of just over 130,000. She had the car and its hard top completely stripped and repainted in the original color and diligently serviced the car for the next 18 years, adding just 10 additional miles, until selling the family heirloom to us upon her retirement and move to Mexico. Factory equipped with both tops, air conditioning, full leather interior, Becker “Mexico” AM/FM cassette stereo, etc., this is a gorgeous example of the only year of production of the “short- bumper” 450SL. Original books, tools and service records for the past 18 years accompany this beautiful car. 141,286 miles. $19,500
