Principal Facts:

Mercedes-Benz 450 SEL 6.9 | (199) Blue Black | Front and rear electric windows | Electric sunroof | Air-conditioning | Cruise control | Rear headrests | New Blaupunkt Amsterdam stereo
A very unique car to be part of someone’s collection. Registered in October 1978 with six former keepers and over four years with the last owner. Recent works carried out with Mercedes-Benz of Gatwick to the sum of £10,000 including new correct-period Michelin tyres and costly self-level valve replacement. We, ourselves have invested a further £9,000 in service work, paintwork, full air conditioning overhaul and cosmetic enhancement.

The vehicle now is in a very nice running order and the investment made in all the correct areas to bring the vehicle in line for a collectable owner. Many receipts and bills are present from specialist repairers. MOT certificate followed by old tax discs. The vehicle was the personal car of a well known Mercedes-Benz enthusiast some years ago when there was a colour change from (172) Anthracite grey to (199) Blue/Black. The interior is of the charcoal velour which complements the car very nicely and reflects well the old School Mercedes days. Spare keys and Manuals are also present. The mileage carries 122,000 with MOT certificates clarifying the mileage.

I have followed SLSHOP with interest for some years now and recently took the plunge and purchased my dream car – they did not disappoint!
The whole experience from start to finish was superb. Their communication was excellent and they kept me
informed every step of the way. Thank you and I look forward to my next purchase!

I have just purchased a 280SL from SLSHOP. I have already purchased several parts from SLSHOP and have found all members of staff most helpful and it is more like dealing with a club than a commercial enterprise I would highly recommend using SLSHOP for cars, parts and most importantly impartial advice.

They put up with my indecision, inexperience and last minute demands and my car is the best thing I’ve ever bought. The most impressive thing about them is the after care though. Nothing is ever too much trouble and they’ve given me the best advice to make sure I get the most out of my car. Can you tell I’m obsessed with them all?
