1977 MERCEDES 450 SEL 6.9

1977 MERCEDES 450 SEL 6.9
From an era in which Mercedes-Benz build quality and style was unapparelled, the 6.9 was the Mac Daddy of them all. This example was first registered on the 27thMay 1977 in Paris and is finished in Astral Silver Metallic (735) over Black Leather (201) – a factory option would you believe it, as oh-so-70s velour was standard equipment.
Prior to arriving in the UK the car stayed within single family ownership in Paris, and was used as a daily driver. Under the custodianship of its current owner the car has received extensive mechanical work from 2017 onwards.
This work included:
New hydraulic pressure accumulators (5)
Reconditioned hydraulic oil pressure pump
Reconditioned hydraulic pressure regulator & valve
New levelling rods
Reconditioned steering box
Reconditioned power steering pump
New center drag link
New steering damper
New idler arm
New tie rods
New bushings
Steering alignment
New brake hoses
Fuel tank and lines cleaned
New fuel filter
Reconditioned fuel distributor
Reconditioned flow divider air flow meter
New Calorstart warm up regulator
Reconditioned starter motor
New distributor cap
New distributor rotor arm
New set of ignition cables (9)
All cylinder compression test passed
New gearbox shifter linkage bushings
New full length stainless steel exhaust
Brakes bleeding and new fluid
Engine and gearbox oil and filter replacement
The result is an on-the-button 6.9 finished in a true Q-car colour combination and with exceptionally stylish original yellow French headlights. These 6.9s are astonishing pieces of engineering with hilarious performance and otherworldly levels of cool, and this example wants for nothing.
