Our Mercedes-Benz R107 450SL – chassis number WDB10704412054901 was delivered to its first owner, B & S Associates (Mortgage Brokers – who still exist today) on June 09 1979 to Santa Monica, California. The comprehensive history file confirms the low mileage in incredible detail with literally scores of invoices, mainly signed by Mrs William Benezra (the B in B & S Associates) probably as a company car. The California License Plate was also registered as BENEZRA. The file is organised in decades and in 2000 the car is still registered to Benezra showing a documented 40,871 miles. Jump forward to June 2006 and we see the final invoice made out to Benezra showing the car now with 49,217 miles. Remaining in California (Laytonville) the second owner, namely Dewan Martha Maurice, would retain the car from September 2008 until September 2018 where a mere 51,000 miles are recorded. In 2018 the car is then imported to Germany by a private collector who would eventually register the car with Historical registration in December 2020. All together we have an outstanding example with just 3 recorded owners and one of the best history files we’ve ever seen at Cathedral Classics.
