Beautiful 1979 Mercedes Benz 450SEL 4 Door Sedan
New to our Benicia showroom is this beautiful 1979 Mercedes Benz 450SEL 4 Door Sedan with silver exterior paint and a very nice black leather interior. You’ll find the factory-correct 4.5L V-8 engine under the hood with the matching 3-speed automatic transmission and this example is very nicely optioned with power steering, power brakes, power windows, air conditioning, a sunroof and so much more. This incredible classic is incredibly original as well with factory paint and everything a discerning collector would look for in a pristine example- it must be seen in person to truly appreciate with a mere 53,716 lifetime miles.
Driven Only 53,716 Original Lifetime Miles
The current owner of this 1979 Mercedes Benz 450SEL Sedan took possession a few years ago and he informed us that he was drawn to this example due to it’s fully original, unrestored drivetrain and tremendous overall condition as a true survivor. This classic vehicle shows excellent in person with fantastic body lines, plus only slight blemish to the factory original paint and metalwork. The interior is also well above the typical driver standard and needs nothing to be enjoyed immediately- it really stands out in person and has excellent provenance to show proper care and maintenance.
Additionally, this 1979 Mercedes Benz 450SEL Sedan still performs like a much newer example with good acceleration, able handling and solid stopping power. This classic could easily be enjoyed today as a weekend driver to take in local shows or on other special occasions. The factory-true engine bay is super clean in appearance but not quite up to show-quality standards; the next owner may opt for some refreshing to take it to that next level. Others would appreciate this classic exactly how it is today since it still drives and performs beautifully on the open road.
Outstanding Value at the Current Asking Price
Overall, this 1979 Mercedes Benz 450SEL 4 Door Sedan is in tremendous original condition and it may be one of the most pristine survivors nationwide. With excellent documentation and incredible curb appeal, someone is going to fall in love with this high-optioned example and enjoy it for years to come. For more information about this vehicle, visit our Benicia, California showroom, give us a call at 707-748-4000, or email us at Sales@SpecialtySales.com. Be sure to mention Stock # B11610 as well.
Legal Disclosures: Specialty Sales Classics has advertised and sold thousands of classic cars since our founding in 1978. We strongly encourage any and all buyers who are unable to view the vehicle in-person to perform a Pre-Purchase Inspection (by an independent party of their choosing) prior to the purchase. Given the age of many of our vehicles, it is extremely difficult to adequately describe all aspects of each vehicles condition in the limited space available and we have learned that these Pre-Purchase Inspections are helpful to all parties involved.
