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 offer this decent 380SL for your consideration. Finished in Silver Blue metallic paint, this car is in average condition. The body has quite a few small imperfections and the paint is average. The bumpers, trim, lights, glass, and chrome is all in nice shape and the car has a factory hard top. The convertible top works, but has a few rips. The interior features blue leather seats that have some imperfections and the car features rare burl wood trim with a matching shift knob. The car is equipped with the original Becker stereo as well as climate control, power windows, power mirror, and more. The car has been well cared for and features an engine rebuilt in 2008 as well as a front end rebuild. It also has a rebuilt brake system.
The car is fitted with the smooth 3.8L V8 that is a solid runner and is mated to a unobtrusive automatic transmission. The car glides down the road like you'd expect a classic Mercedes would and the choice of tops, large trunk, and comfortable seats mean that this is one flexible cruiser. The current owners have enjoyed this car for the last 13 years and have loved every minute of it! We are sure you will too!
