1980 Mercedes-Benz 450SL Roadster, 4.5L V8, 2 Tops, Cold A/C, Original Becker Mexico Cassette!

    Here is an absolutely stunning Mercedes 450 SL in great condition inside and out.  The car was bought new in Tennessee by an Air Force Colonel and his wife but came to Palm Springs in around 1985 when he retired. It was rarely driven and only on short around town trips. The most recent owner had it here in Phoenix, and only put 4,000 miles on it during the last 4 years. It is rare to find these SL's with this kind of low mileage because once you drive this car you won't want to get out. Here is your chance to own the Mercedes flagship for a fraction of its original sticker cost.
The list of some of the equipment:
    -4.5L V8 Engine
    -Automatic Transmission
    -Power Windows
    -Power Door Locks
    -Brand New Black Soft Top
    -Removable Hard Top
    -Original Becker Mexico Cassette
    -Ice Cold A/C
    -Beautiful Original Parchment Interior
    -Beautiful Original Bundt Alloy Wheels w/ New Tires
    The body on the car is in very good condition and was extremely well maintained. The paint on the car is still its original coat of Manila Beige and is in awesome condition and looks as good as the day in rolled of the lot. The car has been completely inspected underneath from front to back and is solid as a rock as a west coast car should be. The car is riding on gorgeous original 14” Bundt alloy wheels with brand new tires. All chrome trim, glass, and rubber seals are in great shape. The black soft top is brand new and also had the seals replaced with the top. The hard top has good seals and the headliner is in awesome shape. Overall the exterior appearance of this car is a 9 out of 10.
   The interior is in great shape all around. The dash and door panels are in perfect condition. The MB-Tex seats are all in very good condition and look absolutely as good as the day it was new which shows the quality of material used in this car. The wood grain is in excellent condition. The carpets are all very nice and have been professionally cleaned. All dials and controls function as they should; power windows and antenna also are fully functional. The sound system is also very nice with the original Becker Mexico Cassette still in place and sounding great!
   Mechanically, this SL runs GREAT! The car starts right up and shifts smooth as silk. It drives as good now as the day it rolled of the lot. The V8 engine is surprisingly quick and responsive. Many Mercedes experts and mechanics stand behind the 4.5L as the best engine Mercedes ever made. It is reliable, easy to fix, and parts are readily available. The suspension is very tight and feels solid even at autobahn speeds above 90mph. The most recent owner spent nearly $8000 completely overhauling the Air Conditioning system, complete front end overhaul, all new shocks, new brakes, fuel system gone through with new fuel pumps, and transmission shifter bushings rebuilt.
   All in all, this is one of the cleanest and nicest SL's that I have had the privilege of being associated with. It has been professionally maintained and truly loved by its previous owners. These cars are only original once, and getting ultra-hard to find in this unmolested condition. This Mercedes is a fantastic car for the price and includes every option offered in this car. This is your chance to get an almost new 450sl convertible for a fraction of the original cost and super well maintained. The car has a clean Arizona Title. Any further questions please call Jon at 480-703-2337. The car is located in Sunny Scottsdale, AZ!
