ONE OWNER R107, 110K ACTUAL MILES, CLEAN HISTORY, COLD AC, WELL MAINTAINED 380SL
This classic one-owner 1985 Mercedes 380SL comes with the perfect original color combination, V8 power, and some great upgrades...and yet you don't have to pay over $12k to take vintage luxury home.
The design of the R107 series Mercedes SL was regal from day one, and now it has matured into a true symbol of an upper-crust classic. It only gets better when you see one like this that has always been treated with the respect it deserves. The white paint has that great look of originality that still shines up nicely when you wax it on a Saturday morning. Of course, it also doesn't hurt that the body is exceptionally straight thanks to the precision quality of these legendary overbuilt cars. No other convertible from this era has the build quality you experience every time the solid door makes its reassuring 'thunk'. And more than just purchasing excellence, this one is attractive for its distinctive features, like the upgrade to the Euro-spec headlights and later-model 15-inch alloy wheels.
The blue pinstripe running down the side is a nice introduction to this car's second color. Whether people see you on sunny days with the optional blue leather, or even when the blue fabric top is up, the color adds a real sophisticated attitude to the white exterior. Beyond just the perfect hues, this Mercedes is desirable because there's plenty of evidence it has lived a pampered life. The carpets, dashboard, wood grain center console, and leather seats are quite original and have the kind of condition that lets you know this was never left out in the sun. And we all know you're going to love grabbing the upgraded Nardi Torino wood steering wheel – it can make even a commute feel like grand touring through Europe. There are plenty more great luxury features, including power windows, power locks, an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo, and factory air conditioning for better comfort in the warm months.
The original 3.8-liter SOHC V8 under the hood has a bubbly, energetic idle, and it pulls the roadster around with real authority. The engine bay looks like it has been the poster child for regular maintenance. And when you know the reputation of a well-kept Mercedes, then you are confident that this SL can drive to the moon and back. On the road, the four-speed automatic clicks through the gears in a businesslike fashion. The fully independent suspension soaks up bumps with a well-damped 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.
It's easy to understand why these SLs remain so popular. It's an affordable and timeless classic that provides enjoyable top-down motoring. This fits in your budget so well that it will break your enthusiast heart if you don't act quick enough to pick up this turn-key classic. Call today!!!
