Description for Mercedes-Benz SL-Class 1977

Don’t miss this chance to own a California based 1977 450 SL Mercedes Benz convertible. I am listing this for a friend. All serious buyers should contact Bob at the number provided below. This is a private party sale and is a no reserve Auction.

It is a 4.5 Liter V8 3-speed automatic in metallic light green. It looks great for a 40 year old car. I am the 3rd owner. The 2nd owner was an elderly woman who didn’t drive much. The vehicle has always been in the San Jose, CA area since new. After she passed away, her car sat idle in for several years. The son sold the car to me and my goal was to get it up and running, which I did, and more. I loved spending time working on this car. Unfortunately, I no longer have the free time to work on it. This car starts, runs and drives as it should and performs especially well on the freeway or long boulevards, a nice paint job would make this car outstanding.

The car has:

Clean title

Been entirely in California

Original Blue License Plates

Original paint (except left quarter panel)

Passed California smog

Working vacuum air locks

Working electric windows

Working wipers

Working horn

Working lights

Working radio and cassette player

Two tops: cloth and hardtop

Original carpets

All original interior with exception of newly upholstered seats

Dual zone air-conditioning and heating

Steel wheels, just missing Mercedes center caps that can be purchased on eBay

No rust on the undercarriage sub-frame

4-wheel disk brakes

User’s manual and Hayne’s and Chilton’s repair manuals

All original chrome intact

Odometer reading of 98,000 miles but odometer doesn’t always work

I made the following changes to the car:

Reupholstered the seats

Changed all the fluids

Retrofitted R134A Freon for the air-conditioning (blows cold)

Replaced fuel pump with filter/strainer

Changed the alternator

Added a new steering wheel cover

Completed a major tune-up

Replaced battery

Replaced brake booster

Replaced half of the weather stripping

Cleaned out the mechanical fuel injectors

Other comments:

It needs new weather stripping on the other half of the car.

It needs a trunk torsion bar.

Metal top is in good condition but the plastic window on the cloth top is foggy

The wipers work but the windshield washer does not.

It appears to have had some work done on left quarter panel.

There were only 8,110 cars of this model made in 1977.

The car is in San Jose, California.
