THE OVERVIEW
Offered for an appreciating new owner at NO RESERVEis this vintage 1980 Mercedes Benz 450SL Roadster!
Finished in grey metallic over grey leather, this 29 year-old R107 chassic two-tops roadster has been driven just over 243,700 miles showing on the working six-digit odometer. It sports a good running 4.5 liter V8 engine mated to the factory automatic transmission, electric windows, factory alloy wheels with newer Uniroyal Tiger Paw tires, factory hardtop and non-matching gold hard top along with rolling factory hard top stand.This classic SL Roadsteris being sold with clear and clean Florida title, factory owner's manual and original top removal wrench!
Offered here at NO RESERVE, this is a great value for about the cost of the sales tax alone on a new C class benz!

THE BODY AND TRIM
This exterior of this 1980 Benz is in presentable condition overall with a nice overall shine to the paint finish. Upon close inspection you will find a few corrosion bubbles along with various paint cracking areas, nicks, small scratches and scrapes and other cosmetic blemishes. The soft top is in excellent condition and the gold hardtop is also in very good original condition. Overall I would describe this car as a quite nice "ten-footer".

THE INTERIOR
As I hope is articulated in the photos, the interior of this '80 450sl is in good condition overall with what looks to be original leather upholstery and carpets and nice headliner with expected wear and tear on the heat-cracking dash, wood, center console area and other trim bits. The horn, lights and blinkers function but the radio and right front window are both not operating currently. There is no a/c or heat as well.

THE DRIVING EXPERIENCE
This nearly 40 year-old Benz starts well with decent running engine that idles high, good shifting transmission and fairly solid straight braking and somewhat worn suspension components. There is a squealing sound from the engine as well.
