According to the Mercedes-Benz Maintenance Booklet, this 450SL was sold to the first owner by Walter's Mercedes-Benz in Riverside, California. The current owner has stated that this vehicle was first owned by his mother-in-law. Nita owned a condo in Palm Springs where she became well acquainted with her neighbor, Walter, of Walter's Mercedes in Riverside, California. The 450SL was special ordered in Silver Green and was offered to Nita due to her fascination with open-air, two-seat Roadsters. The 450SL was purchased new from Walter's Mercedes and then relocated to her home in Newport Beach where it was garaged, maintained, and sparingly driven. By the early 1990s, Nita offered the car to her daughter and son-in-law and in their possession, this 450SL received the same love, care, and attention. Vehicle registration renewal notices and registration cards document ownership as early as 1998. The service history on file reflects routine maintenance conducted by Balboa Import Repair, Maurice's Mercedes, and Johnson Motorcars.
