Vehicle Description

Up for sale is a 1985 Mercedes Benz 380SL. Note: 1985 was the last year of this model. This gem has remained in the hands of one prominent Pasadena, California Tournament of Roses Family since 1987. This car has undergone an extensive mechanical restoration sparing no expense while maintaining the original paint (Astral Silver Metallic #7350) and leather interior (MB-TEX - RED #177A). 

Nick Plati of Plati German Car Service of Pasadena, CA came out of retirement to oversee the ‘Vic Ell Project’ for the family. The project consisted of updating all of the major systems, Fuel, Exhaust, Cooling, Electrical, Brakes, Suspension, and also an engine overhaul. All of these updates occurred in 2014, at approximately 152,896 miles. The year-long documented restoration has resulted in a condition precious few other cars of this vintage can match. Current mileage 152,958

If you want an enjoyable open coach experience, this car is for you! Do not miss this opportunity to own one of the best 380SL roadsters available. Classic cars continue to prove to be among the most resilient and rewarding investments in recent years. Are you ready to make an investment that you can actually enjoy?
