In 1971, Mercedes introduced the 107 chassis, a highly successful design that saw over 300,000 examples built over almost two decades. From 1973 until 1980 models sold in the United States were known as the 450 SL/SLC and were equipped with a durable fuel-injected 4520 cc V-8 that made 222 horsepower and 278 ft-lb torque.
Fast, comfortable and good-looking, this 450SL was purchased new on July 28, 1975 in Wooster, Ohio and since that date has since done just 15,619 careful miles.

It also has its full set of original manuals and original metal warranty plate. Lightly used but never neglected, this SL looks and drives like it is two years old rather than forty. For those who appreciate both factory originality and the
