Beautiful rare color combo you'll fall in love with on this 450SL.  It's getting difficult to find an original elegant color with an interior that matches so well and finished with a sharp contrasting Navy Blue soft top.  The MB-TEX parchment interior has no rips or tears and shows in very presentable condition.  Body panels appear to be straight. glass is original. chrome in nice condition and all rubber shows no damage.  There are no paint or rust bubbles anywhere and there is no rust on this vehicle including the undercarriage that's clean and dry.
Lots of preventative and regular maintenance work has been done on the vehicle in last 7 years including timing chain. tensioner. rails. plugs. cap. rotor. AC. servo replacement and the list goes on.  Service records available with mileage documentation.  Recently had the AC serviced and fully recharged.  AC Conversion has already been changed to 134 and it really blows strong and ICE COLD. something you do not find often on 450's of this age. Motor runs strong and shifts smooth through all gears.  The original owner had it for the majority of time and passed it down to his daughter.  It was then sold to a close friend of the family.  
It has the original dashboard showing a few cracks.  Car comes with a dashboard cover and kit to install that the previous owner had ordered.  Newly installed Sony CD audio system with USB connection.  The original Becker radio that was removed also comes with the sale.
The removable hard top is in nice condition including the interior lining and glass.  Soft top is Navy Blue.  It was recently replaced according to previous owner and visual inspection but does have a tear above passenger head space. We will try and work a good price for soft top replacement from one of our vendors if it's important for you. The wheels are original MBZ factory 14 inch alloy non chrome in nice condition not showing scratches and curb rash.  Dashboard lights. cluster. gauges. switches and windows are all in working order.
