A dream for the Mercedes-Benz collector or enthusiast

The magnificent 1973 Mercedes-Benz 450SL featured here is finished in stunning yellow over a black leather interior. This particular example was sold new by Helms Brothers Inc. of New York to a Mr. M. Govantes of Westberry, New York. Mr. Govantes would maintain this 450SL for more than 30 years and scarcely drive it. This first U.S. production model year 450SL presents in spectacular condition with lots of originality today displaying only 7,772 actual miles! It is accompanied by a plethora of original documentation including the original window sticker, original invoice, original books, tool roll with its original plastic, warning triangle, first aid kit and more! We are proud to offer what we believe to be the very best example that can be found anywhere in the world to the most astute collector or investor who appreciates originality and low mileage!
