1977 Mercedes-Benz 450SLC 4-speed manual

When the R107 Mercedes-Benz SL debuted in the early 1970s, it was a decidedly more boulevardier cruiser than it’s Pagoda-roofed predecessor, the W113. Mercedes then decided to base their replacement for the W111 Coupe on the R107 chassis, resulting in the C107 SLC. This was the only Mercedes-Benz coupe to be based on a roadster, rather than the other way around, with exception of the SL65 AMG Black Series. With the extra ten inches in length and unique louvers in the rear quarter windows, there was no mistaking this larger SL variant. Most R107s and C107s that arrived on US shores came with automatic gearboxes. Those in other markets could specific a manual, mated in some cases to the the larger V8 engines. This 450SLC with the 4.5 liter V8 and 4-speed manual transmission is for sale in Missouri. It wears later style alloys, comes with the original set of bundt alloys and has covered a low amount of miles for its age.

Hello, You are viewing my 1977 Mercedes 450slc European model with a very rare, V8, 4 speed manual transmission with only 24,507 miles. This Mercedes is believed to be a 3 owner car that was first delivered to Saudi Arabia, and then brought back to the United States in 1986, with 17,113 (I have documentation).

The 2nd owner drove the car and put only 2,798 miles, and stopped driving it when her husband died (it was kept in a climate controlled garage until 2011, I have documentation).

The 3rd owner purchased car in 2011, and had the car mechanically serviced, and brought back to perfect running condition and has driven the car 4,589 miles until 2014 (I have documentation and maintenance receipts).

Options include cold ac,working power sunroof,windows and locks. The only thing that is not working is the original radio, it does power up but no sound. The metallic brown paint is in excellent condition with a great finish/shine. There are some small scratches and small dings. very solid under carriage. Glass, chrome and stainless are also in very good condition.

The velour interior is in excellent condition with no rips or tears. The dash (no cracks), headliner,carpet, door panels are all in great condition.. Again this car has only 24,507 miles that has been properly stored, and the condition reflects that showing very little wear.

Mechanically the car is excellent! Engine is very smooth.(quite and no smoke) transmission and clutch shift perfect (no grinding or slipping) Strong clutch and brake pedal. This car is very original down to the hose clamps

The only thing that the car needs is new tires, the old ones are dry rotted. The original bundt wheels will also come with the car. Items also included with the car, original spare tire (still has the sticker on it), books, jack and tools.

The car is sold in “As Is Condition.” I DO ENCOURAGE AND WELCOME PRESALE INSPECTIONS. If you have questions, please send me your # and I will give you a call. I ONLY ANSWER EMAILS WITH A PHONE NUMBER ATTACHED.

Please bid if you are serious and have available funds to complete this transaction. Thank you.

Looking at this car outside and in, you can’t get much more 1970s than this. Brown over brown velour is a combination native to that decade, but fashion is cyclical, as some manufacturers are offering various shades of brown these days. Just not this much of it. At almost $20,000, we’re nearing the top of the 450SLC market, but for someone who really must have a three-pedal Mercedes touring coupe, the choices out there are few and far between.
