With just 41,500 recorded miles, this R107 remains exceptionally original and well preserved from considerate ownership. The paint appears original throughout the surface with meter readings ranging from 4-8mils across the vehicle, primarily on the lower range – with a number of small paint pen touch-ups. All glass is original etched M-B, complementing the fitted original trim, lenses, hard and soft convertible tops, Bundt wheels and all upholstery with supplemental coco mats. Factory decals, tags, plaques and markings can be seen throughout the 450. The engine bay appears correct in form, while the rear luggage compartment remains original with stowed jack, tool kit, and what appears to be the unused original spare/tire with attached instructional tag. Likewise, the undercarriage is well preserved and exceptionally solid in all the crucial areas. All lights, electronics, safety equipment and air conditioning appear to be in proper working order.

In addition to the emergency equipment and accessories, the 450SL is complete with two sets of authentic keys, original matching operations, user manuals and all booklets in vinyl folio, original DataCard, tool kit, interior cruise control instructional tag, parts catalog, top wrenches, hardtop stand, and ownership record. This SL is ready to provide a stylish open-air driving experience for its next owner as a strong contender for continued enjoyment and preservation. Now available for worldwide purchase and delivery from our Houston, Texas showroom.
