FS:CA (SoCal) - 1977 450 SEL 4k obo

Hi everyone,

Update! Price drop..
I am selling a '77 Mercedes Benz 450 SEL. This car is very clean and a perfect buy for any Mercedes collectors or a nice Sunday cruise car. The car has 132k on it and has been garaged most of it's life. All the original parts are on the car as well. The interior is 9/10 and the original leather is still in perfect shape. There are also no tears or rips on any of the seats or door cards. All the electrical components still work great and have no issues. The sunroof works perfectly and has no leaks and the power windows go up and down with ease. The exterior is 9/10 with no dents on the body, rust, or fading. The wheels were freshly powder coated and new tires have been put on. All the exterior lights, turn signals, rear lights are in perfect condition and work / light up perfectly. The car drives great and cruises down the road with ease. I am the third owner only because I inherited this car and I have all paperwork / repair records on the car since '77. I also have more badges for the front grille as well as a bonus.

Now there are some blemishes on the car. The front bumper bar has a dent in the center. The rear glass has a small rock chip but does not leak. The drivers side front carpet is worn and has a small tear near the pedals. The rear cubby on the deck has the leather lifting. Those are the only cosmetic issues with the car. As far as mechanical is concerned, the starter might need to be replaced soon. Other than that the car is in great condition.

I would buy this in a heartbeat if it wasn't so overpriced. I missed out on a 77 450 SEL with the same mileage as yours, 1 owner, with the desirable brown paint/palomino interior for $2200. I see other cars on the L.A Craigslist in similar condition and mileage for $4000 or less. Good luck with sale.

I do apologize if my price is a bit high. But to be honest I inherited this car and don't know much about pricing for these cars. I do in fact appreciate the criticism about my assumption in pricing as it will help in the future sale of the car. If you have an offer please send it my way so we can see if this might be something you are interested in.
