This Mercedes SL 450, a 1970s icon, comes from sunny California, has an original title and has already been cleared in the Netherlands so it is ready for registration in any of the European countries as that import duties have already been paid.

Mechanically the car is now in order, it starts immediately and drives well. Further relevant works are not expected. The mileage is relatively low for a 4500 cc V8, but the odometer needs to be repaired because it doesn't work.

The car has been fully serviced and repainted in a beautiful red. The original colour was gold.

The folding hood was replaced with a new one, the dashboard was repaired in some visible spots where it showed cracks. The mats are in good condition but the new owner might decide to replace them. The interior is in good condition.

There are no traces of rust, the bottom is healthy like everything else. The chrome is in excellent condition, as shown in the pictures. The rims may need to be painted because they lost the original shine.

The car also comes with a CRS (Italian Certificate of Historical Significance) and member of the ASI (Italian Historical Automotoclub), so you can take advantage of discounts for vintage cars and is ready to be registered even in Italy.

The car is in excellent condition and will give you great satisfaction. It won't go unnoticed!

Finally, it is an excellent investment for the future, the convertible model R107 is rapidly reaching the quotations of the Pagoda.
