1985 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class 380SL
This is the one if you are looking for a 1985 Mercedes Benz 380 SL (W107). Low miles, ery rare and striking color combination of gold metallic exterior with palomino (tan) interior. 57,600 miles (less than 2,000 per year). This car has been babied all its life and it shows and drives as a 2-3 year old car. It is in very good to excellent condition throughout. Truly an exceptional car. I am listing for a friend, e are both Mercedes Benz club members and know Mercedes well. She is a very careful senior driver and has been the only one to drive the car while in her ownership. The car has always been maintained to a high level by Mercedes shops and has receipts for work done over the years to maintain her in top notch condition. Within the past 3,500 miles she has had the following work done: Complete Valve Job New valve cover seals New timing chain, ails and tensioner New coolant/antifreeze New thermostat & bypass hose New shifter bushings New hydraulic compensators New Accelerator bushings Tune up including new ignition wires New fuel accumulator New distributor cap & rotorNew Exhaust hangers New battery New Brake pads & rotors front & rear New Soft top seals New A/C compressor, ryer & switches New Heater control valveNew radiator hoses & cooler lines New motor mounts Radiator flush New transmission pan & seal New rear shocksIf you know these cars you know that they are increasing in value rapidly as collector items. This particular car is exemplary; its condition, ow miles and open checkbook maintenance make it an excellent investment. Don’t spend $12,000 to $14,000 for a “good” example and then have to spend thousands for work that this car has already had completed. The air conditioning blows ice cold and the heat functions as it should. The interior and trunk are in excellent condition, ith no wear showing on the pedals or steering wheel, ll power options work as they should (including the power antenna). The carpets show as new and the seats are soft and supple leather with no tears or rips. The door panels are in excellent condition, he dash is in excellent shape with no cracks or blemishes, s is the steering wheel. The palomino interior is very clean and the color is striking. The trunk shows as new, here are absolutely no stains on the palomino carpet in the trunk, vidence of the care this car has received over the years. The car has always been garaged and there is no sun fading on the interior, he chrome is in very good condition, nd all glass is in excellent condition as is the original chocolate brown soft top, ith the plastic windows being clear. This has always been a Western U.S. car and there is no body or underside rust, nd never has been. The wheel wells and engine bay are very clean. The paint is original and very glossy, ith no parking lot dings or dents. The paint can best be described as a good 1 to 2 footer, here are minor imperfections that are not evident until you are 1 to 2 feet away, onsidering it is the original paint it is in incredible condition. The Chrome Spoke Wire Wheels (Zenith Wire Wheel Company, riginal cost $2000) are in very good condition. “Goldie” as we call her, s a joy to drive and exhibit to other Mercedes-Benz and Classic Car enthusiasts. Her presence will be missed at our Mercedes Benz Club meets and she is only being sold to make additional garage space, e will be sad to see her go. Hagerty Classic Car place the value on this car at $28,200 to $20,200, epresenting a condition 1 to 2, his car is a strong 2. Nada Value on the vehicle is $24,400 to $36,100, ased on average retail to high retail selling price. With proper care and maintenance, ou should be able to enjoy her for many years and see her value appreciate. We have her clear title on hand for transfer to the new owner. Goldie has A/C.
