1975 Mercedes-Benz 450SL with 10,000 original miles

The family named her "Blue Belle". Actually the daughter did when she was only 7 years old. The family enjoyed the car for a few summer seasons and parked her when daughter #2 came along. They couldn't part with her and stored it carefully in one of their barns on the property. The car is maintained devotedly by the family's full time mechanic. Alas, the daughter who named her "Blue Belle" is the new owner of the 450SL. She has other priorities now and will let her go to be enjoyed by the next family. It is as perfect as the day it came home from the dealer. If you want to know more, please contact me by email or call 203-417-6856.

'71 Mercedes-Benz 280SL

It is in a barn but what a barn! I met this gentleman through a friend and he has quite a collection of special cars scattered around his beautiful property. I was lucky to be there with my camera to take these pictures of his elegant 280SL. He has owned the car for 15 years and has every document accompanying it including the factory build sheet! The 280SL is now on the market making this a great opportunity to the knowledgeable collector. Prices for Pagoda roof M-Bs has finally taken off and the 280SL is clearly the most coveted model. Email me at or call 203-417-6856. Sold to a new owner on Long Island!
