If you've been looking for a vintage Mercedes this 450 would be a great option. This SL has plenty of power and fantastic looks. It does have some minor imperfections from the age of the vehicle, but overall it a great driver for the money. These were some of the most solid cars that Mercedes Benz ever produced and have a classic look that is truly timeless. These older SL's are becoming classic vehicles that are collectible. This one needs a little bit of TLC, but would be a gem for someone who likes to tinker.
North America was the key market for this Personal luxury car, and 2/3 of R107 and C107 production was sold there. The R107/C107 for the North American market sported four round low-output sealed beam headlights, due to unique U.S. regulations. From 1974, the front and rear bumpers were dramatically lengthened, by 8 inches (203 mm) on each end, to comply with the U.S. NHTSA regulations. R107 and C107 cars were exported to the US with low compression 4.5 liter V8 engines to meet stringent US emissions requirements, yet still provide adequate power. The 450 SL was produced until 1980. Starting in 1980, US cars were equipped with lambda control, which varied the air/fuel mixture based on feedback from an oxygen sensor. The smaller engined 380 SL replaced the 450SL from 1981 to 1985. The 380 SL was the least powerful of the US imported R107 roadsters, so 79-80 are the last years of the more powerful 450SL. These will continue to climb in value as the years progreess. Do not miss out on your chance to own one for under $10k.
