1981 Mercedes-Benz 300-Series Base Convertible 2-Door

Summer is almost here and with the crazy warm winter we have had, now is the perfect time to start enjoying this 1981 Mercedes 380SL. As with most cars that are almost 40 years old it isn't perfect but is a perfect car toenjoy this summer and then lightly restore next winter.
The paint and body are in pretty good condition. I would consider this a 10/10 car. It looks fantastic driving down the road but it is not perfect - there are scratches where it looks like a previous owner had a hard top, there are several areas where rust is bubbling on the paint, the front edges of the hood have been poorly repaired, and there are small scratches from normal use. The chassis is in great shape on this car and all jacking points are solid.
The interior is in decent shape and is useable as-is. The carpet is is good condition. The black leather seats do show signs of wear. As with most of these cars, the dash does have a few splits.
With only 114k miles on the odometer, this SL starts, runs, and drives well. It even has COLD AC!
