Now up for grabs at Gateway Classic Cars in our Houston location is this very rare 1972 Mercedes Benz 350sl. 1971 marked the beginning of the now famous and highly sought after R107 chassis 2-seat convertible roadster. This line of the model started as 350SL coupes in 1971 with a 3.5L V8, but in 1972 they upgraded to the much more powerful and reliable 4.5L V8 but this is where this cars rarity comes into play, only for 72’ was the car denoted as a 350SL but was outfitted with the larger 4.5L V8. In 1973 they shifted the name to 450SL to fall in line with the engine liter size, just as they do today in their new cars. Since it was a new model to the brand at the time the production numbers weren’t that high thus adding to these early models appreciation value. There are not many on the market for sale in this condition as many suffer from rust issues.

The car is outfitted with a strong running 4.5L V8 that utilizes the reliable Bosch D Jetronic fuel injection electronic engine management system. With less than 115k actual miles on the car the power plant has plenty of life in her. The V8 is paired to a smooth shifting 3-speed automatic transmission that provides enough acceleration power but also gives a nice driving experience that the SL line is so well known for. The drive train seems solid from front to back and the car is fun to drive.

Looking at the car drive by you’ll be drawn in by the very recent & refreshed new paint job. It was repainted back to its original color and it came out very well. The body panels are appear to be original to the car. The doors open & close with ease and the body panel gaps align & are even. Of course, this is almost a 50-year-old car that is mostly original. It isn’t a concourse car, but still shows well. The light lenses & their houses are in a great shape with no cracks. The grill, bumpers, & emblems are in very nice condition.

Stepping into the driver’s seat you will find a very nice saddle colored interior that looks great & has been partially refreshed with new seats. The door panels, carpet, rear deck area, headliner, & dash are in superb condition for 46 years old. The owner was going to update the center console vent controls with a later model, but wanted to keep the car original in case the new owner would prefer that. The seats are very comfortable and soft to the touch. The interior just allows you to slip in and enjoy your time cruising around town. While you are zooming around the city the owner installed an aftermarket radio & speakers. The convertible top is new and operates with ease. The top is in very nice condition with no tears or rips, the plastic in the back is clear and generally looks great against the black body & saddle colored interior.

The car has been well maintained and garage kept for most of its life. There has been several updated and replaced items on the car. Looking at the engine bay you will see a very clean and tidy area that has many items in very new & nice condition. Coolant hoses, brake master cylinder, spark plug wires & ignition parts, fuel pump, exhaust, & many other noticeable items have been maintained/serviced. The car is rust free and will only go up in value as these classic Mercedes SL’s become rarer every day. Don’t miss your chance to get a piece of history and call us with an offer today!

1976 Mercedes-Benz 300D


Engine: 5 Cylinder
Transmission: Automatic
Mileage: 41913 ( undocumented )

Gateway Classic Cars of Orlando Florida is proud to offer this low-mileage vintage 1976 Mercedes Benz 300D for sale. The W115-114 Chassis became a very successful platform for Daimler-Benz, and provided customers with more precise handling, superior road surface irregularity damping and isolation, a more comfortable interior, and more modern styling than previous chassis' had, with its newer, smoother lines. The interior of this ‘Benz shows you what German luxury was all about in the 1970’s and features larger seating areas coverd in MB-Tex upholstery, wood grain interior trim, a large steering wheel, and easy to operate controls. Under the hood is Mercedes' venerable, nearly-bulletproof inline 5 cylinder diesel engine. Its ability to deliver near-gasoline-engine-like acceleration was a combined result of its seamless torque delivery, and smooth-shifting automatic gearbox; which gave the 300D's the ability to easily reach highway speeds without the typical "diesel drama" that lesser diesels were known for (you know - the wait, wait, wait, ahh, now we're moving! experience). Merging onto freeway on-ramps was no longer something that one had to plan well in advance for, to avoid being rear-ended by cars already moving at speed. In addition to being well known and popular for their looks, these cars were touted for reliability and durability, with many of them reaching the vaunted "Million Mile" club; and, like this low-mileage example, are still on the road today. Options on this Mimosa Yellow beauty include cruise control, automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, power locks, power windows, air conditioning, power sunroof, AM/FM radio, seat belts, radial tires, and color-matched painted wheel covers. This classic has been well kept for its entire life, and is ready to provide its next lucky owner with many years and many more miles of fine driving. This 1976 Mercedes 300 D is sale in our Orlando Showroom and can be seen in greater detail including 100+ HD pictures and an HD video at www.GatewayClassicCars.com.

1973 Mercedes-Benz 280C


Engine: I-6
Transmission: 3 Speed Automatic
Mileage: 35909 ( undocumented )

For sale in our Fort Lauderdale showroom we proudly present this 1973 Mercedes-Benz 280C. The 280C was a 2 door coupe variant of the W114 chassis sedans. The coupe variants featured styling which was sleek yet understated at the same time. This example was of the first year of the slightly restyled body with a lower hood line and broader grill than before. While the W114 chassis dates back to 1968 the design was kept fresh with the removal of quarter windows in the front door and Mercedes’ soon to be signature ribbed (for your safety) tail lights. The W114 chassis, much like all Mercedes-Benz models from this era, is an extremely durable and reliable car. This example is an unrestored “survivor” and truly does show how well these cars hold up with simple routine maintenance. Cosmetically this car is in very fine shape. Its original silver paint still shows very well and proves what masters of paint Mercedes-Benz was at the time. Complementing the Silver paint is a tan interior giving the entire car a classic look. Powering the vehicle is the original spec 2.8 Liter M110 inline six cylinder engine. As any Mercedes aficionado will tell you, the M110 series of engines is extremely reliable and will pack on the miles with pleasure. This 280C is equipped with air conditioning, AM/FM radio, cruise control, power steering, seat belts, leather interior, and radial tires.
