PPW Motorcars is pleased to offer this beautiful 1979 Mercedes-Benz 450SL, which is exquisitely equipped in the highly desirable and rare Medium Red (516G) with a beautiful Black soft top over a powdery, supple, and Stunning Bamboo Interior! Being one of the only one we have come across in Medium Red over Bamboo, it is our opinion that this is the best possible combination that could have rolled off the factory floor! As gentleman’s car, this is one of the few that was ordered in classic, rare, and elegant colors. 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. 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.

First, this is a true 1 family owned car delivered to the daughter of a beer distributor, Atomic Distribution Company at Tag Galyean Mercedes-Benz in Charleston, West Virginia on July 20, 1979. She owned the vehicle for its entire life, during which it was kept in climate controlled storage until her passing. It was handed down a few years ago and kept in the company warehouse, exercised monthly until the daughter decided it wasn’t the car she wanted to own long term. To prepare it for sale, we did a major service including things like a new timing chain, engine mounts, and beyond, are all zero mile fresh! Further, the cosmetic condition of this car is just lovely. From the gorgeous paint that has a deep shine, to the trim, to the like new german canvas soft top, along with a stunning and highly original interior right down to smaller details. Offered for the true collector, investor, or enthusiast who understands and appreciates the investment potential of this extremely rare, low mile, euro spec, top of the line Mercedes-Benz 450SL! This is easily one of if not the best early body style 107’s available anywhere, at any price! Bid with confidence-you will not be disappointed in this truly amazing motorcar!
