Description for Mercedes-Benz SL-Class 1972

*** You need to check with your state's DMV and make sure you can obtain a title for this vehicle PRIOR to placing a bid. Alabama law does not require titles for vehicles 35+ years old therefore it does not have a title and will only come with a bill of sale. ***
1972 Mercedes Benz 450SL Roadster. Rare 1971 production date of 9/71. First year of this R107 body style. Black w/tan leather interior. Comes with the matching removable hardtop. Has what appears to be the original 4.5L V8 with automatic transmission. Has the desireable European small bumpers. Comes with the original spare tire.
This car will need a minor restoration. It will need a repaint and some interior work. The body is straight with no visible rust but the floors and trunk will need some patches. The engine turns over but will need work to run. The passenger outside door handle is broken. Also some of the valance pieces below the bumpers are missing and will need to be replaced.
These two-seater SL Mercedes are moving up in value. The body style before this are in the $50k+ range. The body style before that are in the $100k+ range. This will be the next car to move up. A great investment.
