1978 Mercedes-Benz 450SL Roadster

Motorcar Studio is pleased to offer this 1978 Mercedes-Benz 450SL. This R107 SL is finished in Classic White over red interior and shows 123,000 miles. It has been in single family ownership for over 30 years. It's rare that we find a 450SL in such nice condition with so much invested into it -- receipts from a 2009 refresh at Bud's Benz total over $30,000.

Restoration work included a complete interior re-trim including the dash and the soft top. The seats were reupholstered in correct leather, door panels, carpet, zebrano wood, soft top, carpet, seals and all MB tex trim was replaced. While the dash was out the vacuum pods were replaced and a number of mechanical items were addressed including subframe mounts. Additional records both before and after the Bud's restoration total in the thousands for brake work, cooling system, suspension work, ignition module and more. It was repainted to a nice standard in the original color in the mid 2000s and it still shows well today.

This SL starts easily and runs well -- the big V8 is smooth and pulls strong. It is noted in recent service records that the A/C compressor has a leak and has been disconnected although the system is intact. Factory 14-inch Bundt wheels are in nice condition along with a matching spare. A correct Becker cassette radio is fitted in the dash and is working along with the power antenna. Books, tool roll and extensive service records are included. This is one of the nicer 450SLs on offer with receipts that far exceed the asking price and finished in a striking color scheme.
