Here's what this 380 SL needs:
  • A/C functions properly and blows cool but not cold - could use a recharge.
  • The trip meter recently stopped working. The plastic gears will need to be replaced.
  • The windshield washer reservoir has a leak.
  • The original Becker "Gran Prix" stereo is missing a button for the cassette player, and the power antenna has power but is not currently extending.
  • A couple of very minor (size of a nickel or smaller) door dings.
  • There are three small blemishes on the paint of the hardtop.
  • The Michellin tires are in excellent condition with no weatherchecking, but are several years old.
Inspection in person is encouraged. Many photos available of the entire vehicle are available.
