Description for Mercedes-Benz SL-Class 1973

You are bidding on a very rare and most sought out early production, a 1973 Mercedes- Benz 450sl with its unrestricted and most powerful V8 gas enginewith automatic transmission. It was bought originally in CA and spent its first 25 years, and the rest in TX.

A two tops convertible that is really in an excellent condition for its age.

All documented miles since new until now and always garaged as well as dealer maintained. All service records are with the car since new until now, about a 3 inch thick folder.

All original keys, books, manuals, booklets, stamped service books from dealer, full size spare tire, jack and tools are included.

Very sleek looking with its Euro bumpers and, it gives it a very distinguished look from its counterparts. Car runs, drives, shifts and handles extremely well and can be driven anywhere on a moment’s notice!

It has no rust with very clean undercarriage; car is sturdy and very tight.



These cars are getting harder to find and they just keep increasing in their values. All original and documented miles with only 169k/miles.

All options work on the car and come with power windows, locks, and heat, AC/ it can use a charge, leather interior, original Becker stereo sounds, power antenna, cruise control, like new hard top and soft top.

I mentioned service records and documentations earlier, it would be very tough and very long to list all that was done through the years, but here is a little glimpse of it:

^ The original owner and his grandson spent close to $35k in maintenance.

^ The second owner is the best friend of the original owner; they bought the car together in CA, owned it for 15 years and spent more than $10k in maintenance.

It is crazy, well over $45k spent on the car to maintain it and that does not include all the money that was paid to buy the car 3 times!

It does have very extensive and impressive service history though. Many were big ticket items that were fixed, and that’s excellent to any new owner.

Here is a small list to give you an idea starting with most resent:

^ Complete rebuilt of fuel system

^ Fuel pump & filter

^ All new flexible brake lines

^ Electrical lines to injectors

^ Shift linkage bushings

^ Original Becker “Europa” AM/FM Radio refurbished & modified to play iPod or cell phone

^ New Heads

^ Soft top

^ New valves & stems

^ Timing chain & tensioner

^ Water pump

^ New tires & rims

^ New battery

^ Brakes & rotors

^ Full/complete tune up & oil change & filter

^ New shocks

^ Exhaust/ muffler

^ Fluids/belts, sensors & hoses

^ Much & much more, just endless!

A fortune was spent on this car, just amazing.

Exterior is excellent as you can see from photos with all glass and moldings are excellent as well as paint. Very solid and sturdy and has no rust.

Interior is very nice as well as you can see from photos. Seats can use some work as well as driver side carpet, if you like. All inserts panels and trim are very nice. All lights, turn signals, wipers and gauges are in working order. Dash is excellent with no cracks.

Overall, an excellent car to own and invest. You will not find another one like it. One of a kind, indeed!
