This Mercedes 450SL needs a thorough restoration, or would make a perfect parts car. Being an early model, it has the desirable small bumpers and more powerful early 4,5L engine. It was originally delivered in an attractive colour combination: silver with a black interior. The car was last registered in 2009 and although it runs and drives, is not in roadworthy condition.
The body is in poor condition and needs structural repair work. Rust damage in the floors, sills, boot floors and central chassis beams. The interior needs to be completely refurbished. Chrome bumpers are in good condition. Standard steel wheels with classic hubcaps.
The engine runs and the car shifts and drives. It runs very loud, due to a leaking exhaust manifold gasket. Good oil pressure. The car will at least need an extensive service update to all systems.
This silver Mercedes 450SL is available for inspection in our shop in Sint Anthonis, the Netherlands. Delivery throughout Europe can be arranged at extra costs.
