This classic 1983 Mercedes-Benz 380SL comes with V8 power, both tops, all the right features (including A/C), and exceptional maintenance...and yet you don't have to pay over $16k 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 paint was given a professional respray, so the Champagne color nicely glistens like sparkling wine in the sunshine. And adding to this is the nice chromed presentation of the iconic baroque alloy wheels. But it's more than just the luster that has you loving this droptop. The body is exceptionally straight thanks to the engineered lines 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'.

The tan leather interior is a nice completing color to the exterior, so it's extra encouragement to stay open to the world. But if your day turns gray, the well-fitting soft top can quickly come out of hiding under the boot. Plus, this one comes with the optional color-matched removable hardtop for those who want a true coupe-like profile. While your roof options are first-class, that's only the beginning of the luxury. There's plenty of evidence it has lived a pampered life with the seats, carpets, dash, and wood grain center console all looking good. Plus, they upgraded this one with nice features, like extra wood in the center storage, dash plaque, and an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo. You also get the right factory features like power windows and cruise control. Since the factory automatic climate control is still blowing nice and cold, you can enjoy the top-down experience long into the summer season.

The 3.8-liter SOHC V8 under the hood has a bubbly, energetic idle. It pulls this convertible around with real authority. The engine bay looks like it has been the poster child for regular maintenance, and we have the records to prove it! When you know the reputation of a well-kept Mercedes, then you are confident that this SL can drive to the moon and back. The pampering of this car is so thorough, you can even tell just by looking at the tidy undercarriage. On the road, the four-speed automatic shifts with authority all the way into overdrive comfort. 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 and four-wheel disc brakes.

It's easy to understand why these SLs remain so popular. It's an affordable and reliable classic that provides enjoyable top-down motoring. And this one has been pampered correctly, right down to its included original owner's manual. Call now!
