"Hey! Where's Bobby?" Remember the good guy on the TV show Dallas? If so, then you know he drove a cherry red Mercedes 380SL just like this. (Not to mention the 450 SL from earlier in the show.) If you drive this car, be prepared to come up with a clever answer to the question of Bobby's whereabouts, because you will be asked.
This previous owner restored this car to perfection with German-level attention to detail. Original Mercedes tools bright and shiny, stowed carefully in the pouch in the trunk. Official Mercedes wool carpets. The exact right stickers on the window glass. He had the wheels re-chromed three times because they hadn't been done correctly.
Consider this from the appraisal: "This is a Number 1 on the Old Cars Price Guide rating system...This is an outstanding example of a desirable model with exceptionally straight and solid body, mint restored interior, a premium refinish in the original color, and a correct new replacement engine. This is one of the most outstanding examples of this model I have seen and is a show winner."
The 3.8L V8 engine nestled in under the hood moves this car with surprising alacrity, and the whole machine epitomizes everything you expect and enjoy with German engineering. The doors close with a pleasant thunk, the seating is supple, and the car slips down the road like a magic silk carpet.
The car comes with a comprehensive set of well-organized receipts and records that document the duration, expense and quality of the restoration.
