PPW Motorcars is pleased to offer this Stunning and last year for the pre-catalyst 1974 Mercedes-Benz 450SL, which is exquisitely equipped in the highly desirable and special ordered Dark Tobacco Brown with a Light Cream Hard Top and Classic Hub Cap wheels. Paired with a matching Dark Brown Soft Top and a powdery, supple, perfectly complimentary Bamboo Leather Interior, which is one of the only equipped in this highly desirable and iconic color combination. Important to note is that this is the last year before the factory added restrictive emissions systems that took the power from 225HP to 180HP just a year later. This is easily the most important thing to note when considering a 450SL. Further, this is one of the few equipped with the steel European style bumpers! As a gentleman’s car, this is one of the best color to have ordered a 450SL. The stunning and timeless colors are both period correct and still fashionable today whether it be a trip to the country club or a leisurely drive through downtown LA.
What makes this vehicle truly worth owning is the level of detail and hand assembled craftsmanship that is present in no automobile currently produced. This magnificent motorcar was produced in an era when owning a Mercedes-Benz meant something significant. There was no such thing as a $299 a month lease on a new C-Class; ownership was reserved for just a select few. This vehicle was one of the most expensive and best overall vehicles available during its time; it combined the road holding ability of a sports car with the opulent appointments of the finest luxury cars. This was a vehicle for the most discerning individual to whom sacrificing any virtue of the vehicle for the sake of another was unacceptable.
Setting this vehicle apart from others is the massive service just performed. This example has just received a MASSIVE full service consisting of Engine Mounts, Sub Frame Mounts, Steering Knuckle, Sway Bar Links, Engine, R134a Conversion, Oil Change, Oil Filter, Spark Plugs, Air Filter, Coolant Change, and much more! This example has clearly been well cared for as indicated by the overall condition as well as how well it runs/drives; cars this good are becoming exceedingly difficult to find. Act now as this magnificently ordered, maintained, serviced, and beautifully driving 450SL will not last long. We are proud to offer what we believe to be one of the best examples of the coveted 450SL Mercedes available today. Bid with confidence-you will not be disappointed in this truly amazing motorcar!
