The Mercedes-Benz SL series started out as the top of the line sports luxury tourer that offered both performance and comfort. The third generation SL was called the R107 chassis and is one of the most recognizable Mercedes of all time. Produced from 1971 all the way to 1989, the R107 lived a long and cherished life. The United States was an extremely popular market for the personal luxury coupe and almost ⅔ of all SL's were sold here. While not as quick or pretty as their European cousins, the US market SL's still represented the cream of the personal luxury car crop. The 450SL was an mid level model that offered an excellent blend of both efficiency and V8 performance.

GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this nice 1978 450SL for your consideration. Finished in a classic shade of Astral Silver, this 450SL is very clean. The paintwork is very nice and the body is clean. It features US market bumpers, fog lights, chrome arch trim, chrome 14in “Bundt” alloy wheels and a matching factory hard top. The interior features black leather seats that are very clean. The dash is crack free and it features and aftermarket Kenwood head unit, Servotronic climate control, and very nice Zebrano wood trim. The interior is comfortable and very luxurious.

The 4.5L V8 is an excellent runner and the car has been very well taken care of since new. The automatic transmission is smooth and unobtrusive and the car goes down the road very well. This is an excellent example of a lovely classic roadster.
