1984 Mercedes Benz 380SL Convertible
Vintage Mercedes, like a used 380SL, are the perfect combination of
old-world luxury and universal appeal. Fast, luxurious, stylish and
built like a Panzer tank, they're first the choice of many classic
car collectors who like to both show and drive their metal.
For consignment a car that shows the passage of time, and use, with
patina, blemishes, and a few exterior minor faults. Mechanically
sound, and beautiful interior which is very clean. An undercarriage
that looks rust free, this is the perfect car if you're one of
those Daimler diehards who's looking for the ultimate in 'old
school', it's a nice find!
Astral Silver paint covers this W102 Series body style and looks
good overall. An original convertible top is on this car and has no
rips or tears and the canvas is nice with a clear plastic rear
window. A hardtop which remains in nice shape as to trim and paint
quality will come with this car. Chromed mirrors and bumpers are in
good shiny condition. Like new carpeting can be seen in the trunk.
Steel wheels are standard Mercedes Benz issue, and these are
wrapped with Michelin tires.
Black MB-Tex covers the front bucket seats which are in very nice
condition with no tears and very little show of wear or folding. On
the passenger side an outer hinge trim is missing. A large arm rest
is seen between the seats. Below this is a console in black molded
plastic that has straight grain veneer inserts which flow upward
towards the dash. This area houses the gearshift, window switches,
mirror control, hazard switch and temperature selector wheel with
airflow option buttons. Moving upward we see a Becker radio and
cassette player, and toggles for antenna up and down, fog lights
and rear defrost for the hardtop. The curved instrument cluster is
very clean as is the original steering wheel in front of it. Black
carpet is on the floors and is clean and has rubber floor
protecting mats upfront.
A Bosch Jetronic fuel injected Daimler Benz BV8 3.8 liter V8 with a
4-speed automatic transmission attached powers this car. Some
slight corrosion on the aluminum parts within the engine bay is
Totally rust free, and very good is seen when giving the underside
a peek. All is clean, and no oiling is present. This car makes use
of 4-wheel independent suspension, and power disc brakes.
Turn the key and this car starts immediately. It idles smoothly,
and when put into gear accelerates nicely and gets through the
gears effortlessly. It handled out test track very well and was a
good cruiser. All interior functions are working as they
With its nice exterior silver paint, and the comfortable MB Tex
interior, along with the three options of a top down drive, or a
convertible coupe drive, or a cold weather all closed in hardtop,
this is an all year driver, and can certainly hold up to it with
anything that is thrown at it. All at a good price to get you into
the awesome seat of a 380SL.
