For Sale: 1977 Mercedes-Benz 450SEL
Euro Spec 450 SEL 6.9
I am selling, and you should buy, a 1977 Mercedes 450 SEL 6.9. In order to truly understand the enormity of the moral and practical imperatives which make it an urgent necessity that you buy this car, you must first be apprised of information about the model, and about this car in particular.This 1977 Mercedes-Benz 450SEL 6.9 is a rust-free example that is a complete Euro car. There are less than 700 of this particular car now available world wide. The car features new brown Metallic paint and a near perfect interior. With its huge V8, this 6.9 was the top of the line Mercedes in its day. Even 37 years on, it still carries an air of exclusivity and prestige for those in the know. For the rest, just lend them a copy of Ronin to figure it out… (infact if you have ever seen this movie, you would swear that this is the car that was in it)
Given that more than a few well worn W116s and W123s still ply our roads, the Euro treatment goes along way to separate this example from its more common USA-spec examples. All of the door, sunroof, and glass rubber gaskets have been replaced, along with a new front windshield.
The interior is in very good condition . The seats appear to be near perfect, and the rest of the interior looks to be virtually new. This car came with the original cloth interior and I installed Rams Head Custom made sheepskin seat covers in an effort to preserve the original interior. While the interior may lack many of the electro-gadgets of modern Mercedes, it more than makes up for this with its clean design and build quality. It isn't completely spartan however, as it is said to feature working cruise control, heated seats front and rear, and ride-height adjustable suspension in addition to the usual luxuries of the late 70s.
Vehicle Options: 4 Door, Eclipse AM/FM/CD Radio with JM Lab (Focus from France) speakers, 2 power amplifiers in the trunk and sub woofer box, (Its nice to have quality sound) Cruise Control, Original cloth Interior Seats, Air Conditioning, Automatic Transmission, Center Console, Fog lamps, Power Door Locks, Power Sunroof.
The heart of car is its massive 6.9L V8 that offered truly remarkable performance in its day. The car also comes with the optional hydro-pneumatic suspension that granted impressive levels of ride comfort and road holding. All mechanical records and service manuals for this car will come with the sale. The engine and transmission in this car was rebuilt by a factory Mercedes mechanic 5000 miles ago.
Though repair costs may not be for the shallow-pocketed, its hard to imagine another classic than can dominate modern highways as effortlessly and comfortably as this 6.9. This model remains one of the coolest sedans on the road, and looks to be a choice example.
Nadaguides states that a perfect 100% trailer queen version of this car is worth $37,500. A poor example is worth $16000. So for just under $23000 you are getting a car will all of the heavy service work already done. All you need to do is drive it.
Enclosed delivery options are also available for a fee in the continental 48 states. All inquiries must have a name and a working telephone number attached otherwise will be treated as spam
