Overall this car is very original and in great shape for its age. The paint is excellentwith the exceptionof a couple very minor blemishes. No expense was spared on this car, records total over $28,000. The odometer stopped working in 2005 estimating the true mileageto be around 140,000.This is the perfect example of a drivers car that will turn heads constantly. Mechanically it is sound and very responsive. The transmission shifts tight and the steering is firm. This 380sl is ready to be drivendaily or enjoyed cruisingto cars and coffee on Saturdays. The car starts right up every time and drives very tight.The car is being sold ASIS, a PPI is encouraged. International buyersare welcomed. Feel free to email me with any questions.
