Timeless colors, great care, and the overall quality of a Mercedes - that's what attracts you to this 1985 Mercedes-Benz 380SL even before you check out the loaded features and value price.
We don't see too many black R107 Mercedes SLs anymore. It's the kind of color that's the pinnacle of sophistication, but not every classic was treated with the right care to wear it properly. That's what makes it so great to see this example with its the factory-correct black looking nice with a good clearcoat shine. It really loves to show off the desirability that happens when the precision craftsmanship meets a lifetime of quality care. And this really has all the right vintage pieces: from the bright chrome bumpers to the baroque alloy wheels. Plus, you get both a coupe-like removable hardtop and folding soft top that both come in black, so this one really does have the sophistication of a dinner jacket.
While there's an all-black look when the car is buttoned-up, any time you want to let the sunshine in, this Mercedes takes on a whole new level of color sophistication. The Java brown interior makes for a timelessly attractive combo against the black exterior. And the full-length tan pinstripe on the body gives the total package a well-coordinated look. So you know you're going to love driving with the top down. In fact, with the R134a air conditioning blowing nice and cold, you'll happily enjoy open-top motoring well into the summer. More than just cold A/C, you and you passenger will be in total comfort thanks to a smart-looking interior that includes leather bucket seats, plush carpeting, glossy wood trim, and power windows.
The 3.8-liter SOHC V8 under the hood is a correct-style powerplant but it was replaced only about 35k miles ago. So this fuel-injected motor looks fresh and is a strong runner. The V8 delivers a nice torquey feeling to get you smoothly and swiftly away from the stoplights. And the four-speed automatic transmission is a smooth shifter that provides overdrive comfort. The fully independent suspension understands a nice balance between luxury and performance that's entertaining on a twisty country road. So this is the perfect weekend getaway car. In fact, the miles are effortless thanks to features like power steering, cruise control, and four-wheel power disc brakes w/ABS.
Complete with owner's manual, this is a beautiful classic Mercedes convertible with all the best features. So don't miss this deal, call today!
