AMG started off as an
independent engineering and tuning company, focussing on the customisation of
Mercedes-Benz cars. In the early years, customisation meant that basically
anything could be done and nothing was considered impossible. A pre-Mercedes
factory era AMG is a truly unique car; no two vehicles are the same. The early
AMG cars primarily received optical modifications; performance upgrades gained
popularity in the 1980's.
The Mercedes 450SLC AMG
that we have on offer is one of these individualised custom-ordered cars. Park
it next to a standard C107 SLC and be amazed by the many different details in
which the cars differ; both subtly and less subtly.
Starting off with a
complete AMG body kit (front and rear spoiler, sill covers, fender flares and a
rear trunk lid spoiler), the exterior was ordered in a two-tone metallic green
custom paint job. Matching green 16 inch alloy Ronal wheels and a custom green
leather interior add unity to the car's outspoken presence. Other desirable options
include a sunroof, headlight wipers and washers, grille and windscreen wiper
arms painted in body colour.
The interior differs from
the standard SLC in many ways. Most prominently by a bespoke Giugiaro steering
wheel, custom trim panels and a first aid kit compartment behind the rear
bench. Front and rear seats are covered with green leather, generally in good
condition but with some repairable wear on the driver's seat. A modern stereo
is fitted, with JBL speakers. The antenna is mounted on the left front fender,
instead of the rear fender on a normal SLC. Power windows were not on the
option list; the first owner probably preferred a manual window mechanism.
Technically, we assume that
the car was ordered with a factory original powerplant, linked to a standard
automatic transmission. The rear axle is a specific AMG unit however, and the
car sits on firmer lowered springs.
Having recently benefited
from extensive service and repair work, this Mercedes is in well-serviced
condition and runs and drives excellently. It received new filters and fluids,
a fuel system cleaning, brake service and new Continental tyres. Current
odometre listing is 115.493 km. The 450SLC was equiped with an LPG system (with
a valve train lubrication unit) in the past, which is still fitted. It starts
on regular petrol and quickly switches over to LPG. The tank sits in the boot
area and the filler neck is located behind a foldable rear license plate.
The body is generally in
very presentable condition, with some minor cosmetic imperfections. On the
underneath there are no signs of damage. A couple of old repairs to the front
floor panels are visible, profesionally done and holding up well.
With early pre-Mercedes era
cars being rarer than hens' teeth, this is an excellent opportunity to own a
piece of AMG history.
