Many of our photos of this classic Mercedes-Benz roadster were taken at the Dallas Love Field Frontiers of Flight Museum and in our showroom. This Mercedes-Benz is a one-family owned automobile and a pleasure to drive. The exterior paint has a number of flaws. The finish has a faded quality throughout and could use a professional polished and wax. There are some chips and minor imperfections. The body is straight. The brightwork shows well front to back. The bumpers are in very good condition as are the chromed wheel well arch trim.
The paint has blisters and chips, shows fading. The auxillary hardtop seals nicely. The brown soft top is in good condition, very seldom has it been up. The interior is in good condition, original and showing some age. The upholstery is clean and detailed. The carpeting is in good condition, paired with carpeted mats. The dash is straight and in good condition, although there are 3 cracks running right through the center top section. The original gauges are intact throughout.
The door panels are in good condition. The center console wood trim is intact and shows some age cracking. This climate control setup was first offered in the '78 Mercedes-Benz 450SL. The trunk is solid and original, some surface rusting & scaling. The spare tire/wheel is in place. The 4.5 Liter V8 is rated at 180 horsepower. The engine compartment is solid and original throughout. The firewall, inner fenders, and core support sheetmetal is clean and solid. The original decals and option identification plates are intact as are the VIN plates on the driver's door jambs and dash. The door undersides are in great shape.
