In 1980, Mercedes-Benz revamped its SL lineup of sporting luxury convertibles with the introduction of the 380SL. The 380 was a further development of the R107 chassis, which was first used in 1972 by the 350SL, and then later by the 450SL. Like its predecessors the 380SL was a heady mix of V-8 power, refined luxury, and sporty underpinnings, and it was as a very popular model during its run in the U.S. The 380SL, so-named for its 3.8-liter V-8, had a smaller engine than the 450SL and was consequently 120 pounds lighter.
This 1983 Mercedes-Benz 380SL Convertible is in impeccable condition. It was purchased out of an estate in 2010 from the original owner with only 39,000 miles on the odometer. With just over 45,000 miles on the odometer today it is a rare example of a low-mileage vehicle that has been loved and cared for its whole life. It has been dealer maintained and serviced since it’s purchase. A brand-new soft top was installed in 2016 and it comes with the original hard top and dolly. This car has been garaged its whole life, the beautiful Lapis Blue and grey interior are in mint condition with no visible flaws. You would be hard pressed to find a better example of a 1983 Mercedes-Benz 380SL!
