For the past 15 years this 1975 450SLC has proudly belonged to my Dad and Audrey. They bought the Merc after seeing it in the street and thinking what a stunner it looked. Interesting how we choose cars isn’t it? You can get all technical and analyse the pros and cons of a purchase, or you can see something and go, “Yep, that one.”
Now to be honest I’ve never been a big Benz fan… but I really like this one. The body shape is one I immediately identify as Mercedes – but then I guess it’s had plenty of time to form that association as apparently the SL spanned 18 model years without one body panel change! 1972-1989! Can you believe it?
Anyway, here’s a few pics that turned out alright – thanks for looking!
