Franklin Mint / 1973
Mercedes-Benz 450 SL Roadster / Limited Edition 450 / FM Discontinued / 1:24th Scale
When The Franklin Mint sought the approval to produce their 450 SL, the folks
at Mercedes Benz requested a favor. They wanted a special color European
version, limited to 450 units. This is one of the rarest-ever Franklin Mint
models. While not numbered on the chassis, each bears its number
on the hang-tag and the box. The European model has single headlamps rather than
dual and no bumper guards.
