MERCEDES 450SL AUTO CONVERTIBLE
It really pains me to sell this but having done 670 miles in the last 5 years, it is really time to let it go to someone who will use it. In the time that I have owned it, I have done a full body restoration including a documented colour change. All the corrosion was cut out and repair panels sectioned in. all the body seals were done at the same time. The body is now showing one or two tiny areas of minor deterioration but it is in outstanding condition. Last year I had the seats all re-upholstered in soft ‘nappa’ black leather. They are wonderful to sit in now and the smell is great. I also had the wheels re-furbished and shod with 4 new correct size tyres.
The car is now fitted with a retro style head unit with Bluetooth handsfree and music streaming etc. the aerial was replaced at the same time with a new German electric mast. Mechanically the car is first class with folders of service history. It never fails to start (I keep it on a trickle charger) and the big 4.5 litre V8 sounds fantastic. I had the gearbox serviced at Mackiei Transmissions in Glasgow last year. I also have the hardtop which is also in colour. The car is currently MOT’d until the end of August and is MOT exempt from September and road tax exempt from next year.
This is a beautiful elegant car which is always admired when it is out.These cars are now appreciating with the youngest low mileage cars now topping £70,000. I believe this car represents excellent value for money when you consider what I have spent on it. It’s a buy it and drive it and enjoy it car and I’ll be sad to see it go. £12995
