Ok here’s the deal, we are posting for sale here because we love history and we would like to sell this amazing car to someone that wants to own a piece of Mason City’s history. This 73 Mercedes Belonged to the MacNider Family, the same family that donated the Arts Museum and the park in your beautiful city and more. That’s correct, this vehicle was purchased by Jack MacNider, son of General Harold “Jack” MacNider.

This amazing 1973 Mercedes Benz 450SL, was the first year of the 450SL and the last one with the small bumpers. It’s road ready and it starts every time. The V8 sounds so good, you couldn’t believe it’s 51 years old. I have had the pleasure to drive it all the way around, even some auto shows. She’s not perfect but it’s very close to be. While there is only some very minor surface rust in a few places, she shows very well. I have the original books and manuals, including the purchase order the pre deliver inspection report, built sheet and lots of receipts since the 70’s. The interior is a solid 9 out of 10, both windows work, only the driver side has a small issue going all the way up on its own, but it works, no a/c, the compressor is good, I’m not sure where the problem lies but we don’t drive it unless the weather is in perfect condition. The hard top is in great condition and the soft top is near perfect. It was replaced by the last owner, No oil leaks, brand new tires, fresh oil. Also carries a clean Texas title in hand! If you’re interested or would like to see walk around videos from the inside, outside and underneath please let me know. I also have videos on the road at 60-70 mph and she handles near perfect. I’m open to great offers.
Thank you.
