Following a period of long-term dry storage this 450 SL was subject to much recommissioning work in 2016/17 including: brake callipers, brake discs, brake pads, brake pipes, fuel pump, fuel filter, engine/gearbox/rear axle oils, ignition leads, four new tyres, new rear metal (copper) fuel pipes, new rear rubber fuel hoses (highest specification), some professional welding (front inner arch and small area in driver side rear footwell), replacement of the rear exhaust/silencer section, a brake fluid change and two coolant flushes. All cavities, sills, chassis, spaces between inner and outer panels etc. have been injected with waxoyl whilst the steel bonnet has been replaced with a lighter aluminium unit. In long term ownership from 1989 to 2016 when acquired by the vendor, it is offered with Swansea V5C together with a collection of invoices. TEG 723N currently registers some 60,500 miles and is described as having “very good” bodywork, white paintwork, engine, automatic transmission and black interior. Powered by a 4520cc SOHC V8 engine, the 450SL model was quoted as developing some 225bhp and 278lbft of torque. A strong 120mph-plus performer, it remained in production until 1980.
