Lot details Registration No: UEC511M Chassis No: 10702422005187 Mot Expiry: Mar 2005
This 450SLC was made in the Mercedes-Benz works in 1974. The German coupe has been in receipt of some cosmetic improvements in the recent past with a total refurbishment of leather seats and trim. The chrome, claimed still to be original, is rated by the owner as being in superb condition. On file, too, are old bills which confirm service history, former MOTs (the current certificate not requiring renewal until next March) and the original factory supplied manuals.
The current condition of the bodyshell is described as very good, with body panels and the gold paintwork also said to be very good and the interior in parchment leather excellent. The electrical items are reportedly all OK, while the 4½-litre eight-cylinder engine and the three-speed automatic transmission are reportedly both in good order. The alloy wheels and tyres are said to be very good too. Indeed, the previous owner is said to have enjoyed this Stuttgart classic on a daily driver basis, while the 77,000 miles displayed on the odometer when entered for this sale is believed to be the genuine total mileage for the car from new.
