1978 Mercedes-Benz 400-Class
This is a 1978 Mercedes-Benz 450 SEL. Under the hood is a 6.9 liter V-8 Engine, coupled with a three speed transmission. 1600 were produced for the international market and only 437 built for North America , that same year. Having that information makes this a rare car. Not to mention , it has had only one owner. All 43 years spent here in Sunny Southern California. Always garaged and covered at night. You will note that the 450 SEL still wears the original blue California License Plate, issued by the DMV to the original owner when the car was new. This car originally sold for$53,000 in 1978, To show you value, put that into 2021 dollars and you get about $185,000. When the owner took delivery of the 450 SEL, he went ahead and had the wheels chromed and installed wheel locks. Mercedes-Benz boasted that this 450 SEL could hit 62 mph in 7.2 seconds, pretty good for a sedan. The 450 SEL's were the first to carry a form of ABS braking system. This Mercedes-Benz has no leaks. Never been in an accident. The owner became concerned when he noted that the clear coat on the paint began to fade, he had the car completely repainted and added clear coat, which cost about $9,400. This vehicle has been inspected and tested. Part of the inspection, we found it necessary to remove fuel tank and had it boiled out, cleaned and re sealed , along with a new fuel pump, fuel lines, and had the fuel distributor re built. This car even smells new. All the seats, and upholstery, still look new, it looks like the back seat has not been sat in. This is a gorgeous car and a one of a kind and one of an opportunity. Do not let this car slip through your fingers. When you are out taking this car for a drive, people know that this car is more than just a Mercedes-Benz, it's a classic Mercedes-Benz .
