Description for Mercedes-Benz SL-Class 1973

This is a really nice sharp Mercedes. These 1973 Mercedes are rising in value so fast right now. Here's your chance to get one before they are out of reach. The 560sl's are already flying up in value so much and the 1973 one of the most popular ones since it has the attractive small European style bumpers and no emissions. The older the better for a Mercedes SL also. The car is a real nice car but as most 42 year old cars it needs some TLC. It is how ever a one lady owner Mercedes that has been cared for and it shows. The car has the hard top in coco brown. This car runs and drives strong. The motor has lots of power and delivers it great. There are no ticks, ings or clattering in this motor. The Transmission shifts perfectly in all gears. The convertible top material is in very nice shape but the windows have some haze that I believe could be polished off. The wheels are 560SL wheels in chrome with excellent newer tires. The brakes are new calipers, ads, otors and hoses on the rear and very nice brakes on the front as well. The exhaust is all there and looks very solid. The heat is nice and hot and the air conditioning even works properly. This one has the original radio with power scan which is pretty rare. All of the books, ervice book, adio book, etal ID tag with owners manual showing original Family owned this car since brand new. The suspension feels real nice but I believe the sub frame mounts in the front are showing their age so I have included the entire kit. The car just passed NYS inspection though. All of the lights, orn, ignals, re working. The wipers work properly. The chrome bumpers are in fantastic condition in the front and back. The paint is nice and shiny with a few imperfections as seen in the pictures. The car looks sharp. The interior is all original and it is showing it's age. It is comfortable and fun to drive. Top down driving in one of these is priceless. There are some areas under the car needing some attention. The floor boards have some rot that would benefit from new floor pans welded in. It's a bit common for a 42 year old Mercedes. These are available and not bad in price. The car has nice solid fenders, oors, runk, nd inner fenders. The glass is clear and bright. No stone chips or cracks in the glass. The hard top is in pretty nice condition and looks sharp on the car with the two tone look. Make sure you check the value of the 1973 450 SL and know that this car is on a very good trend. Antique insurance is a great perk of owning an older Mercedes SL. I like Hagerty Antique Insurance. I'm sure you will enjoy this beauty. I have no extra fees in my auction so bid to win!!
