The SLC model was based on a lengthened version of the chassis from the R107 SL. Introduced in 1971 as the replacement to the W111 coupé it continued in production until 1981 when the S-Class C126, better known as the SEC model, replaced it. A total number of 62,888 SLC models were produced making this the third most rare model of Mercedes-Benz. The 450 SLC 4.5 model numbering just 31,739.

Registered in August 1979, this C107 series has covered 73,000 miles. With a comprehensive history file and a documented restoration to bodywork, including sills and bulkhead areas completed in 2017, this 450 SLC presents and drives superbly. Finished in Astral Silver metallic paint with contrasting Anthracite velour trim and walnut wood veneer centre console. With standard equipment including all electric windows, central locking, power steering. This car has the factory fitted electric sliding steel sunroof, 14” Bundt light alloy wheels fitted recently with four new period correct tread tyres, a re-trimmed OEM (new old stock) interior trim, and seat belt feeders. The most recent owners have made several improvements during their ownership to include the addition of a Blaupunkt CD/radio with full Bluetooth connectivity, all ceramic electrical fuses have been replaced and new front fog lamps and brackets fitted. The C107 models have been steadily appreciating in value during the past few years, especially cars of this standard which has featured in Mercedes Enthusiast magazine.
