Additional information: We have lovingly renovated this exceptionally nice 1978 Mercedes Benz 450 SL roadster and are now reluctantly parting with it. The car has both hard and soft tops and the AC blows icy-cold. The car was in very good shape when we bought it and we have purchased and refurbished many of the small items that often get overlooked in general ownership. We installed new sunvisor clips and a new brake pedal pad, we replaced most of the weatherstripping on both tops (and have the rest of the kit to replace any other strips that might go bad in the future), and we had the speedometer rebuilt and calibrated (it worked, it just wobbled a bit). We also replaced the radiator and had the cooling system flushed and cleaned, and we just repainted and detailed the car in the past month.

The car is not perfect, but on the "very poor to superb" scale, it is most definitely in "excellent" condition and will only increase in value with continued loving care.

Regarding value, last year the NADA listed the Average Retail price for the 450 SL at approximately $14,000. As of the end of July of this year, that price has increased to $22,300, so this is definitely an investment you can drive and enjoy.
