Car Description

1979 Mercedes Benz 450SL


"Sport Leicht" or Lightweight Sport refers car capable of driving at high speed for long periods of time. 1974 was the era of Mercedes-Benz over engineering the vehicles they built, and this car is no exception.


For consignment from the era when Mercedes Benz was over engineering and overbuilding extreme quality cars which would last for many years, and this car fits the bill exactly. A 3-owner car with 93,212 actual miles. this car is a multiple show winner including as recently as the 2019 Amelia Island Car and Coffee in the class of "Best Open Roadster". Interior wise this car is clean, clean, clean. Exterior is very nice, and engine bay is unrestored but in excellent condition.


Exterior

Gray Blue metallic paint covers this car and is in very nicely preserved condition. There is a blue canvas convertible top, which performs perfectly, and is in very good condition, allowing you to have an open-air roadster, or a covered-up convertible. Also, there is a body matching hardtop that comes with this car which is made of fiberglass. When the hardtop is on it is definitely showing off the "Pagoda Style." This allows for cold weather driving and provides plenty of protection from all elements. This is also in excellent condition. All chrome trim and brite-work is good with no signs of dimpling or fading. Headlights are dual rounds and are very clear. taillights are ribbed for a self-cleaning when it is driven in the wet. Standard MB wheel covers are on all 4 corners.


Interior

Very clean is the buzz word for this interior with chip free wood lacquered veneer, and all original equipment for this interior including the Becker radio. Dash is unchecked or cracked, and gauge cluster is really clean. The original steering wheel is out front of the dash and is also excellent. Blue MB Tex covers the buckets and has tuck and roll textured inserts and smooth bolsters, both in blue. The lovely headrests speak German to this writer with their design which remains iconic to these years of the SL's. Pristine blue carpet floods the floors, and the rear cargo area, as well as the trunk, where in all 3 areas is not faded or smudged. Door panels also show almost no wear, even on the door pulls on the interior.


Drivetrain

A 4.5 Liter V8 showing some patina but otherwise well kept, sits in the fairly clean unrestored engine bay. Bosch Jetronic EFI provides the fuel and a 3-speed automatic transmission is on back. Both the engine and the transmission are original to this car.


Undercarriage

This writer finds it absolutely amazing that the underside of a 92 plus thousand mile car can look this good but it truly does! Slight surface rust, but solid as a rock, and built like a German Panzer tank underneath all is well. Power disc brakes are noted all around.


Drive-Ability

Of course, this piece of German engineering fired right up, and handled our test track with ease. Great acceleration, great handling, and solid braking. All mechanicals were operable. A good driver and cruiser.


1979 never looked so good with this classic. Definitely one of the stars in house of this make and model, in excellent overall condition, no fading, no excessive dirt, no wear on the seats, it is simply amazing. Tons of service records to pour through on this car, and it will quickly explain why it is really that good...actually Ausgezeichnet!
