1979 Mercedes 450 SLC
This is a really good example of the fast appreciating and usable classic Mercedes 450 SLC, this practical 4 seater is finished in silver with blue leather interior and blue carpets, all in good condition.
This RHD has the desirable 4.5 litre V8 engine and automatic gearbox, along with leather interior, ‘Mexican Hat’ wheels, period radio/cassette, electric windows and sunroof, all in good working order.
Unusually, the car has been in the same single ownership for the last 23 years and has been well looked after, having covered just under 92,000 miles with a good number of MOT certificates and service book stamps.
It comes with a respectable history file including the Mercedes Owners Manual and Maintenance Booklet, receipts/invoices for works carried out and a collection of MOT certificates.
This car is currently MOT’d until March 2020.
The SLC shares the same basic (R107) platform as its convertible SL sibling, the Mercedes-Benz 450SLC fixed head coupe was introduced in 1972.
Boasting a full, comfortable 4 seats, independent suspension, power steering and disc brakes, it proved a refined and popular grand tourer, its 4520cc SOHC V8 engine developed a quoted 217bhp and 265lbft of torque.
