Do not miss this opportunity and become the new owner of this timeless classic Mercedes convertible! This is a NO RESERVE auction.
The R107 replaced the W113 (Pagoda) in 1971 and was succeeded by the W126C in 1981 for the coupe models (SLC) and by the R129 in 1989 for the convertible models (SL). The 'early' R107 models with smaller bumpers are certainly becoming rarer and more popular.
What makes this Mercedes very popular is the production date. The car is namely one of the first R 107.044 models: number 2449. Produced in Jan. 1972.
107 = Model R107
044 = Submodel 450SL
1 = LHD
2 = Automatic transmission
0002449 = production number
It is rare that an 'early production R 107.044' Mercedes is offered.
This Mercedes has to be restored to your own liking. The car starts and runs but produces white smoke. The car must therefore have a complete technical inspection before it can be driven. Furthermore, there is welding at the bottom, as can be seen in the photos, and the car needs to be addressed optically.
These Mercedes convertibles are starting to follow the prices of the Pagoda, especially the 'early R107 models' like this one. So don't wait too long.

Please note: some elements on this page have been translated automatically.Description Catawiki erronée. La voiture est un projet de restauration À voir fuites huile, freins bloqués, moteur qui fume, freins bloqués... etc...
Please note: some elements on this page have been translated automatically.Foto`s waren mooi, maar algehele staat viel tegen.
Zowel verkoper als Catawiki hebben meegewerkt om koop ongedaan te maken.
Advies is wel om de taxatie en foto's beter te controleren op realiteit.
