PPW Motorcars is pleased to offer what is one of the finest Mercedes-Benz 450SL’s that we have had to date. This beautiful and correct 1974 Mercedes-Benz 450SL, which was exquisitely ordered in the seldom seen, gorgeous, and Carnelian Red with a brand new black soft top over a soft, supple, and Black Leather Interior is as good as they come. Further, this example has had extensive restoration work, making it nicer than virtually any other available, at any price. With a recent repaint in the original carnelian red, new black leather seat covers (originally a leather car) and new horsehair and foam, new soft top, refinished wheels, and much more! This particular example has been ordered with every option available; fitted with Climate Control Air Conditioning, Carnelian Red Paint, Black Leather Seats, Cruise Control, Power Windows, Hardtop, Right Outside Mirror, Becker Europa Stereo (Included), Electric Antenna, and Bundt Wheels.

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 an MSRP of $15,540 ($85,060 when adjusted for inflation) 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 all others, aside from mileage is the wonderful and freshly restored condition. This is the only carnelian red cars we have seen and the last one we had sold in just a week! There is not another example on the market that has had such extensive refinishing done as for most of the examples, performing this level of work would eclipse the value of the car. This example came to us from the son of the second owner who was preparing the vehicle for full restoration when he suddenly had to move to New York City for work and could not complete the restoration he had started or store the car. We purchased it after the paint had been completed, which he had done at a high cost. To bring the vehicle to the standard that the vehicle otherwise is, we had new leather seat covers fitted along with new horse hair and foam (to ensure that they not only look but feel like they would have when new), a new soft top installed, and performed a major service on the vehicle. We are proud to offer what we believe to be one of, if not 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!
