1982 Mercedes-Benz 380 SL
1982 Mercedes-Benz 380SL Roadster
Vintage Mercedes, like this 380SL, are the perfect combination of old-world luxury and universal appeal. Fast, luxurious, stylish and built like a Panzer tank, they're the first choice of many classic car collectors who like to both show and drive their metal. With no collision or major body damage, this rock-solid Benz is a keeper.
Consigner stated 56,485 miles are showing on this SL. An all original car that shows the passage of time, and use, with patina, blemishes, and a few dents and dings. Mechanically sound, and beautiful interior which is very clean. An undercarriage that looks rust free, this is the perfect car if you're one of those Daimler diehards who's looking for the ultimate in 'old school', it's a nice find!
Light blue paint covers this W102 Series body style and looks good overall. A new convertible top is stored below the hardtop which has a new rear seal. The hardtop is in nice shape with brite work and paint quality. Chromed mirrors, and bumpers are in good shiny condition. Steel wheels are standard Mercedes-Benz issue. New carpeting has been installed in the trunk floor, and all exterior lighting is functioning well.
Dark Blue MB-Tex covers the front bucket seats which are in very nice condition with no tears and very little show of wear or folding. A large dual arm rest is seen between the seats. Below this is a console in blue plastic that has straight grain veneer inserts which flow upward towards the dash. This area houses the gearshift, window switches, and temperature selector wheel with airflow option buttons. Moving upward we see a Becker radio and cassette player, and toggles for antenna up and down, fog lights and rear defrost for the hardtop. Consigner states that the AC system has been upgraded to the new R134A, however the compressor will not engage. Instrument cluster has nice covers and original steering wheel with airbag.
A fuel injected Daimler Benz BV8 engine with a 4-speed automatic transmission attached powers this car. Some corrosion on the aluminum parts within the engine bay is seen.
Totally rust free, and very good is seen when giving the underside a peek. All is clean, and some oiling is present, but unremarkable for a car this age.
A hardtop dolly, cover for the hardtop, 2 car covers, and the original radio are being included with the purchase of this car. A nice example from 1982, and your chance to get a reliable driver in the form of an earlier model, at an affordable price.
