450SLC CABRIO, only ONE made like this!
The first owner bought the 450SLC, at that time the MOST expensive sportscar of Mercedes Benz, and gave it in the hands of the body work artists NICO-MICHAEL in the US.
These Euro immigrants had become autorisation of Rolls-Royce to do convertions under the licence of RR themselves!
The first buyer, who was a notoir Rolls-Royce costumer, decided not to wait 10 more years to own a real 4-5 seater Mercedes cabrio and gave it in NICO-MICHAEL hands.
The result was estonishing, hardly different from the real Mercedes SL. For a conversion in those years of 29.000,- Dollars, the owner had really room for grown ups in the back, in stead of foldable jumpseats.
This is truely the Mercedes that Mercedes never produced!
remember that we had to wat from W111 to W124 before Mercedes delivered a 4-5 seater cabrio!
I was happy to buy it from the second owner who tresured the car and loved it for 25 years, and I assure you, this gem will be kept like new.
Works foreseen are:
- Real Pentas
- Euro bumpers
- Euro lights
And that should finish the Mercedes Mercedes should have build.
