About This Car

2135

1981 Mercedes-Benz 450SL (R107)

Champagne Metallic (473) with Black Sports Check interior (031) and Black Fabric Soft Top (9001)

6,565 miles

An exceptional opportunity to acquire a very low mileage 450SL.

The 450SL is the iconic early SL, and this one wears it’s Mexican Hat alloy wheels just perfectly. In this colour and interior combination, this car captures the very essence of what an SL was all about back in the late 1970s and early 1980s. Early cars in good condition are getting harder and harder to find, and as gold, brown and beige hues fell out of favour in the early 2000s, many of these cars disappeared completely.

With a renewed interest in these colours now in full swing, this wonderful Champagne Metallic car will look splendid on the showground, on your driveway or on the autobahn.

Where will your Mercedes-Benz take you?

Bulkhead Corrosion

Although the R107 is renowned for build quality, there is one chink in the armour - the bulkhead. Many cars that present well from the outside are hiding internal rust. Water from outside the car should drain out through specially designed channels, but over time, these become blocked forcing water inside the car. Once water has breached the blower motor cover in front of the windscreen, it slowly wreaks havoc from inside out. This delicate area did not have rust protection from the factory, and as the metal deteriorates it the water ingress can lead to faulty electrics, damp carpets and musty smells inside the cabin.

All our cars come with a 36 month bulkhead warranty.
