Here's a classic Mercedes that has upper-crust pedigree at a value price. This 1985 Mercedes-Benz 380SL lets neighborhoods think you've hit it big, while you enjoy the virtues a durable and appealing example of German engineering.

The design of the R107 series Mercedes SL was regal from day one, and now it has matured into a true symbol of distinction. The bold three-pointed star in front always commands attention, and the cream paint gives this one a butter-smooth attitude. In fact, we believe the paint is the original application. The way it still shines as it enters into its fourth decade is a testament to both the level of respect this example has received all its life, as well as the level of quality of the legendary overbuilt cars. No other convertible from this era has the build quality you experience every time the solid door makes its reassuring 'thunk'. Even the brightwork on the bumpers, grille, windshield, and around the cabin retain the kind of shine you expect from the best in motoring. And speaking of brightwork, the updated set of 15-inch wheels look like mirrors.

You can never go wrong with the R107's interior completed in quite durable leather. The tan buckets are in pristine condition because they have spent much of their life under the sheepskin covers. The moment you get behind the wheel, you instantly understand why these SLs are a road trip favorite. The tri-pod gauges are still handsome, and today's designers could take a note from the clean, elegant design that conveys information without being excessively complex. The whole interior looks quite good in this classic, which tells you there was seldom a time it was parked with its top down. This one has all the nice original luxury touches such as power windows, power locks, power antenna, and the correct Becker Grand Prix AM/FM/cassette stereo. A nice upgrade is that the air conditioning has been converted to modern R134a, so you can stay comfortable with the top down well into the summertime. If it does turn gray, the brown folding soft top emerges from its fully concealed boot. But when the weather turns cold, or you just like a little extra style, a matching hard top also comes with this Benz.

The 3.8-liter SOHC V8 pulls the roadster around with real authority. The engine bay looks like it has been the poster child for regular maintenance. Even the undercarriage is tidy, which are the right signs of mature ownership. On the road, the four-speed automatic clicks through the gears in a businesslike fashion. The fully independent suspension soaks up bumps with a comfortable feeling that somehow never isolates the sporting nature that's entertaining on a twisty country road. This is the perfect weekend getaway car as the miles are effortless thanks to features like power steering, cruise control, and four-wheel disc brakes w/ABS.

It's easy to understand why these SLs remain so popular. Here's an affordable and reliable classic that provides enjoyable open-top motoring. And since this Mercedes fits in your budget so nicely, it will break your enthusiast heart if you don't act quick enough to pick up this classic. Call today!!!
