The most iconic generation of Mercedes-Benz’ long-running SL model is arguably the third-generation R107. Produced for eighteen years between 1971 and 1989, the R107 was a staple in Seventies and Eighties movies, driven by well-heeled ladies and gents. These cars were a massive hit in Hollywood too, with many celebs at the time owning one. It’s no surprise then, that they still turn heads when cruising. Get in on that head-turning action by purchasing this 1973 Mercedes-Benz 450SL Roadster. Coming from Missouri, it’s got 92,000 miles on the clock and runs beautifully, according to the seller. Three sets of keys and a car cover are included in the sale.
The R107 sports a timeless design that doesn’t look dated, rather well-aged. It’s a hard act to pull off, but this 1973 Mercedes-Benz 450SL Roadster does just that, wearing a prominent red paintwork which the seller is unsure of whether the car has been repainted. The beauty of these SLs is that you get a convertible top, which is black on this car, as well as the original, red-painted hard top which you can install when necessary. This solution grants you the best of both worlds – a soft-top convertible for sunny and windy days, and a proper hardtop roof for winter and wet weather driving. Storing the hardtop at your home is made easier by the inclusion of the original hardtop stand in the sale of this car. Two sets of wheels are also included in the sale, which are the honeycomb alloys as well as the steel wheels with hubcaps. The interior sports a black color theme and is strictly an affair for two. The seller reports that the radio is an aftermarket unit that may have been installed in the Eighties. You get a set of clear dials, a nice thin-rimmed four-spoke steering wheel and power windows as part of the conveniences.
This 1973 Mercedes-Benz 450SL sports a 4.5L V8 engine that’s equipped with Bosch fuel injection, helping it put out 190hp and 240lb-ft to the rear wheels via a three-speed automatic transmission. This car has received a recent tune up, with the fuel system reportedly completely gone over with injection system checked as well. New coils, wires and plugs have been installed too.
