Gateway Classic Cars of Scottsdale is proud to offer for sale this sought-after 1977 Mercedes-Benz 450SEL 6.9 marketed on consignment with our Arizona showroom, located in North Phoenix. A child of the W116 series, the 450SEL was already an impressive executive sedan but the 6.9 is the one to have since it features the largest production engine of any import sedan post-World War II. Painted in a classy Milan Brown, this Mercedes has all the typical body lines/trim and benefits from not having the less desirable American-spec bumpers or dual beam headlights. The 6.9 model features a self-leveling hydraulic suspension system, with manual ride height adjustment. The headlining act on this German classic is the monstrous 6.9l V8 engine. The 16 valve, 250hp engine with Bosch fuel injection is plenty powerful for this large sedan and you'll be impressed by the reserves in the 360lb ft of torque when you plant your foot to the floor. 60mph can be reached in approximately 7 seconds according to online literature- Ferarris from this era were struggling to get below 8 seconds for reference. A 3-speed automatic transmission helps move this German tank down the road with purpose. This 450SEL 6.9 is an import and has a speedometer/odometer measured in kilometers, so the dash reading is 175,833 but that is approximately 110,000 miles after doing the conversion. The interior of this Mercedes is upholstered in Blonde cloth with matching velour carpets and options including power windows, climate control and a power sunroof. The wood trim finished in walnut veneer is showing some age and there are a couple of small cracks in the dash but overall the cabin is in nice shape. This 1977 Mercedes-Benz 450SEL 6.9 was an exclusive buy when it was new and to this day remains highly collectable. This car has been driven, enjoyed and can be bought at a much more accessible price point.
