This well-maintained 380SL is highly original and shows very little overall wear. It comes with complete up-to-date service documentation, the original books and tools, never-used original spare wheel/tire and original hardtop with cover and rolling stand. Even the original Hirschman antenna cleaning cloth is still with the car. Pennsylvania safety inspection completed just 15 miles ago. Always garaged and always a pleasure use automobile since new. Mercedes 107s in this color combination, condition and originality are becoming increasingly more difficult to find.

About the Mercedes 380SL:

In 1980 Mercedes-Benz updated its venerable and very popular R107 series by replacing the 450SL with the 380SL. The 380 had a smaller V-8 displacing 3.8 liters that was actually designed with consideration of the stricter emissions controls in place by that time. Despite the drastic reduction in engine size the 380SL has only 5 horsepower less than the 450 and the car weighed over 100 pounds less. It also came with a four-speed automatic gearbox compared to the 450s three-speed so the 380SL enjoyed comparable performance as well as improved drivability. The 380SL was produced until 1985 and like its companions in the R107 series it makes for a fun durable and comfortable classic to own.
