1983 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class
Up for sale is my 1983 Mercedes Benz SL 380 it is completely custom. Ive owned it for almost a year and still finding new upgrades the previous owner installed. I bought the car custom from a dealership did not have specific on the upgrades. Theres at least 25k in upgrades when i bought it the a/c didn't work needed new hoses new igntion the car has a viper alarm system the locks the doors are not controlled by air locks like how there supposed to in this year got that fixed. got stabilizer in it Also when i made turns it was not great maybe how the new steering wheel was installed so had new wheel steering mechanism had all the oil leaks under the car sealed no leaks anymore so the turns are a lot better just got oil change couple months ago This all cost me 6k in repairs in just my care. Its my daily driver i only drive about 5 miles a day no problems ever sense I put the 6k in to make it much better drive. Its a great second car but at this moment I can only have one car to much of a gamble to be my daily driver. The odometer is exempt and is stuck at 57586 miles it would've cost me like 1k to fix and when i purchased it all the problems listed above were adding up so i picked the most important. The neat thing is the screen has a odometer that reads mid 4 k miles and change so I'm guessing it has about 60k miles on it a lot of these upgrades were done probably in 12 or 13. Back to the upgrades it has matte black paint, RE rims that have a lip in the back are pushed back I don't know exactly but there pushed back like in or two in or two which gives you much more aggressive look. the brakes are painted red, ew suspension so it looks lowered handles turns great which is important in this car good for turns. taillights and signal lights very light tint on them, he Front two windows and rear have tints legal tint limit in Florida. The only flaws in the exterior the muffler has dark tint passenger trim is loose just like a screw to put it on i just don't know how to tighten don't want to make it worse and if i go back to the car shop I'm sure i will be charged crazy amount so has that. When i first bought the car i didn't know better and tried to take the hard top off myself the car does come with the tool to remove the hard top and i chipped the paint little bit that hard top chrome has little dent on one side and the about size of a dime passenger side where it locks in I learned that you need two people for that.but the hard top is painted matte black match the car the engine bay area was even painted matte black the hard top matches the interior completly very cool so does the side panel and trunk match. Everything in the car matches perfectly done. Ok so now on the interior the interior is where serious money was placed in this car from the guy that owned it before me the seats in the front and the back and the little ones are diamond pattern black with red stitching the driver and passenger seats have seat warmer they work just like a new car and the a/c gets super cold which is surprising but it did cost me 2.5k the a/c air does go through all vents. to get a new a/c installed. The only flaw in interior is the carpet near gas pedal is getting worn from my feat moving from brake and gas. Sometimes the speakers if u blast music the covers don't stay on. Then when you try to unlock the hard top cause of all the custom work the silver lever kind of scratches it but that is a easy fix. The whole car interior Black and red and thats the theme with the whole interior black and red which is very darth vader doesn't really get more darth vader then 80's benz matte black lowered with red interior lights black and red everything interior. The car is as high tech as new car just with the old school vibe. It has carbon fiber dash kit touch screen heated seats you can pair your phone so you can talk hands free. I mean i could write and write just completely custom. The trunk is super custom super cool looking. The car still sold as is thats how I bought it but a stead of putting money in custom work i put the money in fixing the car up to handle 5-10 miles a day without a sweat. But still never know. Anyway its great car it defiantly is a conversation starter when i go to grocery store. If you want more pictures just message me and I can email them.
