1978 Mercedes-Benz 450SL

See this 1978 Mercedes-Benz 450SL on display in our Ft. Lauderdale showroom.

Gateway Classic Cars of Fort Lauderdale is delighted to present this very nice 1978 Mercedes 450 SL Roadster!

If you have been waiting for a good one, stop looking! Mercedes fans know the quality Mercedes put into these rugged, fun to drive SL's. One even starred in TV's "Hart to Hart" back in the day.

The current owner is only the second, and has enjoyed it for 26 years- keeping it in a garage for only occasional use. It shows! The light blue paint is excellent, and it features a new soft top. And of course, a matching hard-top is included in the sale. Wheels appear to be the more desirable later 560 SL version, giving this car a newer than original look. Newer Michelins finish it off.

The inside looks great too, and clearly well cared for. That's the advantage of one with few owners, and lower miles.

The engine bay is as intended, and the V8 fires right up and runs smooth- making plenty of power for that desired roadster fun. The owner indicates 40 years of service history is included, with notable work including recent ignition overhaul, major AC repair, starter, master cylinder,water pump, battery, and more. All manuals are included, as is the never used first aide kit! This car was clearly loved by it's owners, so top looking and come buy it before it's gone. Good SL's like this continue to appreciate as they are fine automobiles ans still look fantastic today.

This 1978 Mercedes 450 SL is for sale in our Ft. Lauderdale Showroom and can be seen in greater detail including 100+ HD pictures and an HD Video at For additional information please call our knowledgeable staff at (954)227-4202 or email us at
