1978 Mercedes-Benz 450SLC (R107) #2176 Icon Gold with Beige Velour *SOLD*

Overview of this Mercedes-Benz

1978 Mercedes-Benz 450SLC (R107) 

Icon Gold Metallic (419H) with Beige Fabric (075)

41,000 miles

History has shown us that if 2+2 = 4, it doesn’t always mean that four can travel in comfort – which is where we introduce the SLC.

The C107 can seat four adults whilst offering enough legroom, headroom and stowage space to still be viable for journeys of any distance – yet it remains a coupe with elegant lines and a sporting stance.

Production of the C107 lasted 10 years. The SLC relieved the W111 of it’s large luxury coupe duties to the Mercedes-Benz badge back in 1971, before the baton was taken by the W126 based SEC coupes in 1981.

The Mercedes-Benz C107 SLC has for too long dwindled in the shadow of the R107, and undeservedly so. An SLC offers all the elegance and class of an SL but with an added helping of exclusivity and practicality.

A good SLC is a thoroughly enjoyable classic car to own, drive and be transported in.

A 450SLC is a rare car in it’s own right; but to find one in such a fantastic colour combination in such impeccable condition is truly something else.

The family who currently own this SLC can be classed as SLC connoisseurs, having owned two examples before purchasing this Icon Gold model.

Dr K and his son purchased this car in September 2018, when the odometer showed a mere 40,199 miles.

Prior to Dr K’s ownership this car belonged to the Peter Vardy Heritage Collection in Glasgow.

During the winter of 2018 this SLC was treated to a Stage 5 Dinotrol Underseal Process, and a photographic record of this work is available. This work is backed up by a bill on file totalling £3,325.

There is a signed letter on file from the previous owner that states the above.

A well kept service book documents the mileage up to 38,317 miles. The evidence within the documents that accompany this car indicate that it was cared for from 1978 until 1997 by one very careful owner, and has been used sparingly if at all since then.

This is a superbly cared for car, preserved ready for future generations to enjoy.
