Description

  • Manufacturer: Mercedes-Benz, 1976.
  • Beginning in 1972, Mercedes-Benz issued a series of revamped SL models. Compared to most convertibles, the cars offered a relatively high level of safety, and the interiors were comfortable, yet durable.
  • “The 450 SL’s body/chassis/driveline combination is among the most solid built, with the sort of quality on which the German automobile’s reputation for near perfection is founded.” Road & Track Magazine: Sports & GT Cars
  • Cost: $10,500

The Museum’s display was donated in memory of Charles Lewis Cash.
