1976 Mercedes-Benz 450se

Pedigree Motorcars is proud to offer this beautiful 1976 Mercedes-Benz 450 SE. For further information and details contact Ken Baker at 561-866-1601.

Regarded as the most advanced and well engineered car of its time, these timeless classics are still impressive drivers today. This example is one of the most impressive ones we have ever driven. We strongly encourage potential buyers to personally inspect this Mercedes to understand how magnificent this car is.

This is one of the finest examples of a W116 Mercedes-Benz you can buy. This California car is well documented with a very thorough service history showing the original owner took meticulous care of it throughout its life. Driving this car is an absolute pleasure. The engine is extremely smooth, the shifts are barely perceptible, and the steering and suspension are much tighter then you would ever imagine in a 41-year-old automobile. There is virtually no play in the steering, and it's handling is very crisp.

This highly original Milanbraun Metallic with saffron text is truly impressive. The body has no rust on it whatsoever, the paint gleams, as does all of the chrome. Inside, this car is truly a time capsule. Everything inside of this car is impressive. The saffron text upholstery shows no wear. The seats are still supportive and firm. There is no cracking on the dash or door panels. The wood veneer is all magnificent with no cracks or fading. Even the carpeting still looks as impressive as it did 40 years ago. When we first saw this car, we were truly amazed by its condition.

As with all of our cars, it received a thorough inspection and service prior to putting it on the market. To get this car ready for sale we had performed:

Replace spark plugs
Replace two injectors
Clean distributor
Replace wiper blades with correct original ones
Replace fuel tank vacuum pod
Replace air conditioning compressor manifold seals, evacuate and recharge air-conditioning system
Replace driver seat handle
Replace AC drain hose
Rebuild sunroof motor
New trunk seal

We have driven this car over 200 miles since getting it ready for sale. It has proven to be not only fun to drive, but extremely reliable. Every single switch, control, light, and operation works as it should. Even the electric antenna for the original radio, and the cruise control work.

This car originally came with steel wheels and painted to match hubcaps. In 1976 alloy wheels were a factory option. We have fitted this car with brand-new bunt alloy wheels. We are selling it with the alloy wheels as well as the original steel wheels and hubcaps. So two sets of wheels will come with the car.
