The Mercedes-Benz SL series started out as the top of the line sports luxury tourer that offered both performance and comfort. The third generation SL was called the R107 chassis and is one of the most recognizable Mercedes of all time. Produced from 1971 all the way to 1989, the R107 lived a long and cherished life. The United States was an extremely popular market for the personal luxury coupe and almost ⅔ of all SL's were sold here. While not as quick or pretty as their European cousins, the US market SL's still represented the cream of the personal luxury car crop. The 380SL was a mid range model that offered an excellent blend of both efficiency and V8 performance.
GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this nice 1985 380SL for your consideration. Finished in Silver Blue Metallic, this car is in excellent shape overall. The paint is very nice, with just a couple small imperfections here and there. The body is very straight and the chrome and rubber trim is excellent. The car has a very nice soft top and a matching factory hard top. The exterior is bolstered by later model 16in alloy wheels with Continental tires as well as bumper mounted fog lights. The interior features blue leather interior that is very clean. There is a little wear on the seats, but everything is very nice and comfortable. The dash is crack free and the wood trim is stunning. The factory instrumentation and climate control is intact and the car features a newer Panasonic radio.
Powered by a smooth 3.8L V8 and an automatic transmission, the 380SL is a classic Mercedes. It runs and drives very well and has been very well cared for. The car comes with tons of service records as well as the original owners manual, sales literature, tool kit, original spare, first aid kit, and jack.
