The Ever-Popular Mercedes 380SL

 Mercedes hit a home run with this model of its famous SL line, and our 380SL shows why:

  • Great styling;
  • Pagoda hard top;
  • Unsurpassed comfort (including leather and a/c);
  • Plenty of trunk room; and
  • Grand touring performance.

A Great Grand Touring Sports Car

  • Paint, Underside and Engine Compartment

The car is finished in the very attractive Champagne Metallic, and it sports both a matching Pagoda removable hardtop as well as a black canvas (as original) convertible top. The paint has a few touched up chips but would still rate as an 8 out of 10.

The frame and underside of the car appear free of rust, other than some minimal surface rust.

The engine compartment is clean, not detailed, and is consistent with a car that has 50,000 miles on the odometer.

  • Interior and Top

The brown leather seat upholstery is all in very good condition without any splits or holes. The door panels and dash pad look as new. Unusual for these cars, the wood dash trim all looks very nice.

The Pagoda removable hardtop is finished in the same color as the car and looks like new. The headliner in the hardtop is in excellent condition.

The black convertible top is canvas and in excellent condition without any rips, tears or signs of wear.

  • Engine and Exhaust

 This car has the 3.8 liter V-8 engine made for the 380SL series.   The engine starts right up and runs as it should—strong and fast!

The exhaust system has recently been replaced.

  • Transmission The 3-speed automatic transmission shifts properly and smoothly enabling an enjoyable ride around town.
  • Tires, Brakes, Luxury and Monitoring Systems

 This SL has 4 mounted 205/70R14 tires—that have most of their tread remaining—as well as a spare.

The power disc brakes on all four wheels work to bring the car to a rapid and safe stop.

The list of luxury/safety features includes:

  • Air conditioning, of course with climate control
  • AM/FM/Cassette radio (antenna needs attention)
  • Power steering
  • Power brakes
  • Power windows
  • AM/FM/Cassette radio with power antenna (antenna will need attention)

The mileage on the working odometer is 50007 which the Virginia title lists as “actual.”

There is nothing to match a Mercedes for Quality

When one sees and drives this 380 SL it becomes apparent why the R 107 series was a hit for 18 years. Solid, comfortable and reliable best describe this sports car. This series is set to become the next generation of SLs that experience value appreciation.

This 380SL cars represent not just a great driving experience but a sound investment as well. Apart from the investment value of this car, it is hard to put a price on the feeling of enjoyment when other drivers and pedestrians wave and give you a “thumbs up.”
