See this 1979 Mercedes-Benz 450SL convertible on display in our Nashville showroom.

Our Nashville showroom digitally showcases this stunning 1979 Mercedes Benz 450SL. The 450SL is the sports car with a softer luxurious side. Although not inexpensive, the SL has been the car to show “you have made it" since the 1970's. This 450SL for sale has been well cared for and it shows in spades. Now I have seen a lot of these cars, I know them and have a soft spot in my heart for them. I have sold many. I mention this to so you will understand when I say, this is the cleanest I have seen in a long while, you understand this is not the second one I have seen. This Mercedes SL450 for sale comes covered in brown paint with Orange Bamboo (I kid you not) interior. The leather on both seats has just been replaced and this makes the interior look new. This Mercedes Benz 450 SL gives you both worlds with the soft top tucked down and the hardtop in place. In just a couple of minutes the hardtop can be leaning against the wall of the garage as you experience the wind in your hair and the sun in your face. If you run into a couple of sprinkles, just secure the soft top and continue your drive. Tucked under the hood of this German machine is a 4.5-liter V8 that is backed by an automatic transmission, this combination gives this car plenty of power for all those back country roads or to cruise on the highway. These 450SL's do everything very well, they handle like a sports car, offer a smooth soft ride on the highway in fact, there just isn't anything not to love which is why the current owner has cared for this car so well through the years, now it can be your turn to love and care for this 450SL. Options for this '79 450SL include: Air conditioning, AM/FM CD player, Manual convertible top, Cruise control, Power steering, brakes and windows, Leather interior and Aluminum Alloy rims and Radial tires. for sale can be seen in greater detail including 100+ HD pictures and an HD video at for more information please call the showroom at 615-213-1800 or email us at
