For your consideration a very rare and special order color combo and most sought out production, the 1978 Benz 450sl with its unrestricted and most powerful 4.5liter V8 gas engine with automatic transmission.
Very nice two owners, garaged kept for all of its life and only driven on nice sunny days, two tops convertible that is really in an excellent condition.
Photos do not do justice to the car as it is much nicer than the pictures.
Car runs, drives, shifts and handles very well, fun to drive.
This iconic model is presented in a very rare color combination of Silver Green Metallic exterior with Moss Green leather interior and is complemented with Cypress Green hard top.
It is an amazing combination! These 1970s colors really emphasize the great lines and proportions of this car.
I do have the original window sticker as well as the original purchase order.
You would be proud to have this car sit in your driveway.
Very original two owner car, the original owner owned it for 33 years. Very well dealer maintained with dealer service stamps on service manuals. It was dealer serviced and maintained since new until now as every service was documented by the dealer stamp in its service book along with the mileage.
Very low and original documented miles with only 112k/miles and last full dealer service was performed at 109k/miles.
It is also a smoke and pet free car. The lighter still works in the car was never used and it is brand new. We have not been using the car as we should and has been sitting in the garage so now it’s time to let someone else use it and enjoy it for many years to come.
The light green exterior along with the dark green interior is accented with a new black soft top and is completed by factory Euro Headlights.
When I bought the car, the hard top was still sitting in a factory crate; I put it on the car. The deeper green color is an amazing color combo for the car.
Very sleek looking and the car runs, drives, shifts and handles extremely well and can be driven anywhere on a moment’s notice!


These cars are getting harder to find and they just keep increasing in their values. Very low original documented miles, only 112k/miles on the cluster.
All options work on the car and come with power windows, locks, heat, AC, Cruise Control, leather interior, and the original Blaupunkt radio stereo sounds and much more.
Radio was working as well as the antenna but now, it does have power and the clock works but it does not come on and that could be an internal fuse, not sure. Also, the heat and AC work and now every time I put the blower on, it blows a fuse and that prevents it from working properly. I am not sure if that due to a bad ground!
Before the last usage, last year, the heat/AC unit module under the hood was replaced with a new unit.
If you are familiar with this car, you know that these units are dealers only units and they cost $1800 to buy and that does not include the labor to replace it.
Like I said, all was working from before and the car has not been used on regular bases as it should.
It has all the books and manuals that came with it, 2 keys, full size spare tire, tools and jack.
Tires are new and they are the Good Year Eagle VR60. Tires size is P215/60/VR15 and they are mounted on the original Centra Benz Rims and are like new. Soft top is new and is in excellent condition.
Very well maintained car throughout with many new parts replaced and maintained by the dealer.
Here are some of items that were done to the car:
^ Tires & Brakes
^ Centra Benz Rims
^ Tune Up
^ Belts, Hoses & Censors
^ Battery
^ Heater Servo
^ Ventilation Valve
^ Damper Cage

Exterior is excellent as you can see from photos with all glass, lights and moldings are excellent as well as paint is excellent. No dings, dents or scratches. Very solid and sturdy that has no leaks with very clean and dry undercarriage.
Exhaust is also in excellent condition as well as the brakes.
Interior is excellent as well as you can see from photos. Seats are very nice and sturdy with all inserts, panels; carpeting and trim are very nice. Sun visors are still brand new and that is amazing.
All interior and exterior lights, turn signals, wipers and gauges are in working order.
Even the cruise control, lighter, horn and clock work as well.
