1984 Mercedes Benz 380SL Convertible
Vintage Mercedes, like a used 380SL, are the perfect combination of old-world luxury and universal appeal. Fast, luxurious, stylish and built like a Panzer tank, they're first the choice of many classic car collectors who like to both show and drive their metal.
For consignment a car that shows the passage of time, and use, with patina, blemishes, and a few exterior minor faults. Mechanically sound, and beautiful interior which is very clean. An undercarriage that looks rust free, this is the perfect car if you're one of those Daimler diehards who's looking for the ultimate in 'old school', it's a nice find!
Astral Silver paint covers this W102 Series body style and looks good overall. An original convertible top is on this car and has no rips or tears and the canvas is nice with a clear plastic rear window. A hardtop which remains in nice shape as to trim and paint quality will come with this car. Chromed mirrors and bumpers are in good shiny condition. Like new carpeting can be seen in the trunk. Steel wheels are standard Mercedes Benz issue, and these are wrapped with Michelin tires.
Black MB-Tex covers the front bucket seats which are in very nice condition with no tears and very little show of wear or folding. On the passenger side an outer hinge trim is missing. A large arm rest is seen between the seats. Below this is a console in black molded plastic that has straight grain veneer inserts which flow upward towards the dash. This area houses the gearshift, window switches, mirror control, hazard switch and temperature selector wheel with airflow option buttons. Moving upward we see a Becker radio and cassette player, and toggles for antenna up and down, fog lights and rear defrost for the hardtop. The curved instrument cluster is very clean as is the original steering wheel in front of it. Black carpet is on the floors and is clean and has rubber floor protecting mats upfront.
A Bosch Jetronic fuel injected Daimler Benz BV8 3.8 liter V8 with a 4-speed automatic transmission attached powers this car. Some slight corrosion on the aluminum parts within the engine bay is seen.
Totally rust free, and very good is seen when giving the underside a peek. All is clean, and no oiling is present. This car makes use of 4-wheel independent suspension, and power disc brakes.
Turn the key and this car starts immediately. It idles smoothly, and when put into gear accelerates nicely and gets through the gears effortlessly. It handled out test track very well and was a good cruiser. All interior functions are working as they should.
With its nice exterior silver paint, and the comfortable MB Tex interior, along with the three options of a top down drive, or a convertible coupe drive, or a cold weather all closed in hardtop, this is an all year driver, and can certainly hold up to it with anything that is thrown at it. All at a good price to get you into the awesome seat of a 380SL.
