PPW Motorcars is pleased to offer what is one of the finest Mercedes-Benz 450SL’s on the market today. This beautiful and correct 1973 Mercedes-Benz 450SL, which was exquisitely ordered in the perfect Mercedes SL Color Combination of Astral Silver with a brand new black soft top over a soft, supple, and Black Interior; this car 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 Astral Silver, new new soft top, refinished wheel covers, and much more! 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 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 short bumper Astral Silver over Black car worth owning on the market today! 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 not be economically feasible on a vehicle of this price. From the gorgeous repaint that is very well done, to the strait body (see photo of side), to the absolutely stunning and original undercarriage, there is not a better car out there. The underside is not undercoated, molested, and shows as one of the best original cars we have ever had, including 30 and 40,000 mile cars we have had. 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!
