PPW Motorcars is pleased to offer what is one of the best period correct ordered Mercedes-Benz 450SL that we have had to date. This beautiful and highly original 1974 Mercedes-Benz 450SL, which is equipped in the iconic and period Arctic White with Chrome Bundt Wheels, over a soft and supple Jet Black Interior is about as good as they come. Further, this is a pre-catalytic car (50 state legal) and has significantly more power than the later years, drives much better, and has the most reliable climate control of any R107. In short, this is the year to buy without paying the huge premium of the earlier euro bumper cars. This is the under the radar year of the 450SL to get! As gentleman’s car, this is one of the few that was ordered in classic, rare, and elegant colors that make it look like it rolled off the palm, beach or LA dealership floor 50 years ago! The stunning and timeless colors are both period correct and still fashionable today, whether it be a trip to the country club or long drive to the country home.
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. With the factory window sticker showing a base MSRP of $15,450 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.
This particular example has been ordered with every option available; fitted with Climate Control Air Conditioning, Cruise Control, Power Windows, Hardtop, Right Outside Mirror, Becker Europa Stereo, Electric Antenna, and Chrome Bundt Wheels. Setting this vehicle apart from all others, aside from mileage is the wonderful condition throughout. Having been lovingly cared for since day one, this example has always received what was needed.
Further, it just received a major service to ensure that it is ready to be enjoyed by the next owner for many years to come! Over $5,000 of service was done to make this car drive as well as it looks. It is often the case on these cars that mounts are in poor condition as it is often overlooked due to the time/cost associated with replacing them. As a part of our service, those are all brand new. Further, the timing chain is another often avoided service, so we preventatively replaced it to ensure that the next owner will not have that on their mind. This magnificent motorcar is ready to be driven anywhere and what we believe to be one of the best example of the coveted 450SL Mercedes available anywhere. Offered to the collector, enthusiast, or investor who appreciates the magnificent investment potential of this magnificent motorcar! Bid with confidence-you will not be disappointed in this truly amazing motorcar!
