A leading Mercedes Benz dealership - that has been family owned for over 70 years – have entrusted me with the mandate to sell some of the exceptional cars in their collection of strictly Mercedes vehicles.

These cars are all located near to Johannesburg, in South Africa. Do not worry about the logistics involved - I have been importing and exporting cars for almost 30 years now. I offer various options to transport, ship / deliver just about anywhere globally, insure, clear and import, and even register on your behalf. These worry-free extra cost services ensure you will be driving the car within weeks of purchase.

Being that the cars offered have all resided in the same region from new, with no exposure to sea ozone conditions and a dry climate they are all rust free. Furthermore, meticulously maintained by the owner’s Mercedes dealership workshop. No expense has ever been spared and only genuine Mercedes Benz parts utilised for replacement as and when required from new. The genuine odometer reading of 70,664 klm (about 43,900 mls) from new is naturally supported by her incredible condition.

This example is a 450SLC two-door but full four-seater coupe - which is ultimately more practical in everyday use compared to a Roadster. These cars are well engineered - an ever-lasting impression from the first time i sat in one on a showroom floor in the 1970's was the solid "thunk" of the door when closed. The car is fitted with automatic transmission matched to her smooth v8 power delivery.

The car is resplendent in her original and blemish free MILAN BROWN metallic coachwork - an unusual colour that was normally only used by the W116 450SEL saloon.

The interior is also still original and well-matching in MUSHROOM velour cloth upholstery, complemented by her standard high quality ambiance cabin.

The original radio/tape has been replaced by by radio/cd unit with removable-face, but still blends nicely with the dark wood-veneer panels, and the aircon system works as it should.

The ex-factory Bundt “Mexican Hat” alloy wheels are undamaged and perfect condition with new tyres fitted as part of the ongoing service regime.

Also standard fit from new is a fully operational sliding steel Sunroof panel - the seal is still perfect and the entire interior headlining is still in superb and unstained original condition.

It is not an exaggeration that this car is in outstanding original condition and conceivably one of the very best RHD examples available anywhere in the world. The SLC - C107 Coupe - was sadly often overlooked in favour of the SL Convertible versions - the R107 Roadster model. Due to this reason these cars somehow "missed the boat" as a collectable classic car, that is until quite recently years and thus there are not many really "nice" examples left - in fact a decent "SLC" is more scarce than the equivalent "SL" by year model.

It is a no-brainer really, it's more cost effective to buy an original top-quality car rather than trying to recreate one via the restoration route. If this describes the attributes of finish and quality that you demand, then buy her now.

The mobile (cellular) number advertied is for direct UK dialing - it is not a South African mobile number. If you want to discuss purchasing this car then give me a call anytime that suits you. Finally, if you are a genuine buyer responding by email kindly include your contact number.
