What you have is a 1977 450SLC 5.0. A very good find indeed. Officially, Mercedes claims the cars were produced for the 1978 model year, but a few were produced in 1977. Awesome find. I hope you have bought the car and will keep it. Also, I'll check to see if you are on the 026 registry and report back.
