1983 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class 380SL
DUE TO AN UNPAYING SCAM THIS CAR IS BEING RELISTED A Two-Owner 1983 Mercedes-Benz 380SL original survivor in EXCELLENT CONDITION. Blue with a dove grey Leather Interior. 3.8L/155HP V8 Engine. Automatic Trans. with 28,300 original miles The 380SL is a heady mix of V-8 power, refined luxury, and sporty underpinnings in a classic and timeless design. This 1983 Mercedes Benz 380 SL could almost pass for new. If you look close enough, long enough, you can eventually spot a tiny blemish or two in the exterior paint, but it is practically flawless and the shine on this car is stunning. The grey leather interior is perfect in condition. The matching door panels are in excellent condition and the dash pad is free of cracks or sun damage. All of the gauges (oil pressure, temperature, gas gauge) work, as does all of the safety equipment (lights, wipers, horn, seat belts, etc.). The tachometer and speedometer are also functioning, as does the cruise control. Of course the factory air conditioning works properly and blows cold due to a $2600.00 repair. Overall, this is one of the nicest 1983 Mercedes Benz 380 SL Roadsters that I have owned. A fabulous example of Mercedes' luxury sports car, this 380 SL is an exceedingly well-kept, extremely low-mileage and always has been garaged kept. This car came from the factory with the 3.8 liter fuel-injected V-8 engine. it eagerly starts at the turn of the key, idles smoothly and pulls strongly. The automatic transmission shifts cleanly and smoothly, just as one would expect from a premier luxury sports car. The brakes function very well, the car stops quickly without pulling to either side. Out on the open road, it feels like a modern sports car with nice acceleration, tight handling and just a great overall feel of solid power and not a rattle box. There are no leaks in engine or transmission. It is quick, comfortable, eye-catching and, not to be forgotten, fun to drive.The car is fully equipped with Power steering, Power disc brakes, Cruise control, Power windows, Power locks, original Becker AM/FM/Cassette stereo. The convertible's soft top is in great condition with a very small slit near the back window that is hardly noticeable. When the canvas top is lowered, the top stows under a fiberglass/metal boot. The hard top is in perfect condition and fits properly when put on for the winter. The wheels are in perfect condition with no discoloration or curb damage. The tires are relatively new. The chrome and stainless trim is in excellent condition. All of the windows are in great condition and operate correctly with their power assists. The body of the car is free of any rust issues or door dings. Drivers door has a slight scratch that can be touched up. The pictures I have taken are not photo enchanted and I took them on a cloudy day so buyers where able to see in detail the condition.
