GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this one owner, low mile, 1979 Mercedes-Benz 450SLC for purchase. The LC class has been a top luxury / sports line of production cars for decades producing ahead-of-pack features, comforts and performance. The R107 model SL came on the automotive scene in 1972. With the debut of an all new V8 engine in this lineup, the 450SL was larger and produced a much more modern ride than its Pagoda predecessor. The suspension is fully independent and 4-wheel disc brakes came standard. The SLC, commonly referred to as an SL coupe, was the first total SL coupe that Mercedes offered since the original SL, the 300SL Gullwing. The R107 SLC's are very similar in appearance to the hard-top equipped convertibles, though they have a taller roofline and were 14 inches longer due to the usable rear seat.

The 1979 Mercedes SLC coupe offered here was purchased new by the current owner as a company car from Ed Mathieu Imports, Inc. of Chicago, IL on March 27, 1979. The car came finished in Milan Brown Metallic exterior paint over a two tone interior and powered by the spirited 4.5 liter V8, automatic transmission and rear wheel drive. At 59408 miles, the car remains in excellent original condition. The exterior paint appears to be and is believed to be 100 percent original and shows just appropriate patina for its age, the original interior is outstanding featuring excellent original seats, near perfect dash, excellent wood and very nice trim throughout. Mechanically, this 450sl was recently serviced, runs and drives great, all lights work, power windows roll up and down as it should, gauges work, heat and fan work as they should.
Overall, This is a very original, one owner example of a rare classic SLC Mercedes Benz with a very attractive appearance and sound mechanicals. Car comes complete with all original books and manuals, original plastic sheath, original tool roll, 3 keys, spare, jack etc. Recent service includes: new distributer cap, new rotor, valve cover gaskets, air filter, oil and filter.
