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.
GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this nice 1983 380SL for your consideration. The Red exterior is in excellent condition for its age and the chrome trim and badging remain in great condition. The interior shows some age but still very neat and tidy throughout. The wood trim has a couple small cracks but still shows very well. The car has been owned by its current owner for the last 16 years and was well taken care of. Highlights include owners manual, first aid kit, Panasonic CD player power windows, power passenger exterior mirror, 2 keys, spare tire, power brakes, power steering and air conditioning.
The 3.8 L V8 is an excellent runner and the car has been very well taken care of since new. The automatic transmission is smooth and unobtrusive and the car goes down the road very well. This is an excellent example of a lovely classic roadster.
