Classic and Sleek silver with red interior!! Available for sale in our showroom in Houston, TX, this lean 1973 Mercedes-Benz 450 SL, one of the most desirable classic Mercedes convertibles on the road. The 450SL model ended production with the 1980 model year, and its 380SL replacement would carry the torch into the 1980s. Before it was gone, however, the 450SL averaged about 6,000 units annually. With a 4.5-liter V-8 under the hood, the fuel-injected V-8 featured overhead cams and delivered 230 horsepower. It was paired with a three-speed automatic, with no manual transmission available. Its suspension was fully independent and four-wheel disc braking was standard, making the SL series very comfortable top-down cruisers. One can also put the hard top on and have the feel of a coupe. Vehicle options: 4.5 liter V8, 3 speed auto, air conditioning, removable hard top, replaced timing chain and motor mounts, cruise control, power brakes, power steering, AM/FM radio, cassette, convertible top (manual) power windows, seat belts, leather interior. If you are looking for a great Sunday morning cruiser, or if you decide to daily drive it this car is ready to go.
