1978 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class European 350SL Roadster

I am offering for sale a very rare and most sought out after, 1978 Benz 350sl EURO with its unrestricted and most powerful V8/ M116gas enginewith 4 speed automatic transmission. This model was made for the German market and rarely seen in the US market. Check out the Vin # 10704312013778, hat is a true M116/350SL/ Euro car.

A very nice two owners, nd a two tops convertible that is really in a very good condition for its age.

Very low original miles, ith only 106k/miles.

Very original two owner car, he original owner owned it for 35 years. I bought from the original owner, etired Doctor that brought it from Germany, hich maintained it very well.

We have not been using the car as we should and has been sitting in the garage so now it’s time to let someone else use it and enjoy.

Silver exterior with Dark blue interior accented with navy blue soft top.

Very sleek looking and the car runs, rives, hifts and handles extremely well and can be driven anywhere on a moment’s notice!

Early last spring, t made a trip to Miami and back and the car performed flawlessly.



These cars are getting harder to find and they just keep increasing in their values.

All options work on the car and come with manual windows that work very well, eather interior.

All gauges on the instrument cluster work as they should including speedometer and odometer.

It comes with a full size spare tire and jack.

Here are some of things that were done on the car:

  • New Soft Top

  • New Tires

  • New Alternator

  • New Battery

  • Brakes.. last year or so

  • Tune up.. last year or so

  • New fluids.. last year or so

    Very well maintained car throughout with many new parts replaced and maintained by the dealer.

    Exterior is very nice as you can see from photos with all glass and moldings are excellent as well as paint is very nice. Very solid and sturdy and has no leaks. Paint is very nice and shiny and at some point was repainted.

    It does have very little rust to speak of, nd it does have couple of spots that are bubbling under the paint. One is above passenger side headlight and the other is on one side of the hood. It does not look bad at all and are easy to repair and cheap. It also has couple of spots undercarriage. Again, n my opinion, ery minor.

    Interior is very nice as well as you can see from photos. Seats are very nice and sturdy and the only thing is the driver seat as you see in the photos. All inserts panels and trim are very nice. All exterior lights & interior lights, urn signals, ipers and gauges, lock and horn are in working order. Dash is in excellent condition and original.

  • I noticed that the radio is not on, t was working last time it was used, nd also, he knob to turn the blower on is disconnected from the back. The heat does work but you cannot put it at higher speeds. Both of these issues are minor but thought to mention them.

  • Car needs to driven as it has been sitting, noticed a little high idle when first starts then gets down. These cars are meant to be for Autobahn and love to be driven.
