1978 450 SL with 55,000 miles, silver with black leather, second owner.


Asked by Apr 18, 2016 at 11:01 AM about the 1978 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class 450SL

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

Bought the car in 1984 from original owner.  Since 2004 I have had the car
repainted, installed a stainless steel (lifetime), muffler, a new soft top,
replaced most of the door and window seals and gaskets, new tires, a
complete rebuild of the A/C, a new water pump and power antenna.  Only
driven about 3,500 miles since.  Any idea how I can establish a price to list on
the internet?  E-bay prices are all over the place.

Hard to grade it, but you can probably expect to sell it between $15-$20K. Start the asking price high and let the offers come in.


If offered 10K accept! price accordingly.. Its not difficult to locate 450SL one owner original cars with 30,000 -70000 miles, with both tops. 10-12K $ORIGINAL. Regards
