The W107 body style Mercedes has graced the worlds roads for over 40 years, making it one of the most recognizable Mercedes-Benz models out there.Not only that, but the platform was quite rock solid being produced more-or-less unchanged from 1971 all the way until 1989.

These were nicknamed Der Panzerwagen in Germany because of their weight and how notorious they were for being solid.One reviewer went on to say the following about his drive in one:

This 450sl sold for around $32,000 in 1979, which adjusted for inflation is a Kia Rio shy of $110,000 in 2009. What did that kind of Carter-era cash get for you? A damn fine ride. The 450sl is a cruise missile of a car, a true Grand Tourer capable of days of comfortable Autobahn travel top up, or down, on or off. The interior is snug, though comfortable for both driver and passenger.It doesnt leak. It doesnt squeak. It is as solid today as the day it rolled out of Stuttgart thirty years ago. This thing is built like a tank.

This English Red 450SL is a true survivor car.It has enjoyed only one owner and 41,000 pampered miles over the last 32 years.The owner purchased it through the European delivery program and got to drive directly off the assembly line and onto the autobahn for a few weeks before shipping it back to the Bay Area.

It has always been garaged and comes with a new soft top and matching hard top with stand and cover.The owner can also provide complete maintenance history which is always an added bonus.If you have been looking for a pampered, 1 owner 450SL then this one is definitely worth a look.Please drop us an e-mail or phone call to learn more or schedule a visit to our showroom.
