Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars of Kansas City is proud to offer a more than stunning 1981 Mercedes Benz 380 SL convertible! If you are looking for a practical roadster with style, fine handling, comfort, reliability and high build quality, the Mercedes-Benz 380SL is the answer. For less than $16,000, nothing touches it in terms of an overall package. The 380SL is part of the fourth generation of the Mercedes-Benz SLs. Designated the type R107 chassis, it began production in 1971 and was completely different from the 230, 250 and 280SLs (type R113) that it replaced. The 1981 380SL came to the US market with a 3.8-liter 155-horsepower, all-aluminum overhead V8 mated to a four-speed automatic transmission. Weighing in at 3,560 pounds, and with modest horsepower and spring rates chosen for comfort, it was a less-than-inspiring performer (0 to 60 in 11.5 seconds). Yet in the Mercedes tradition, it imparted a feeling of predictability, even when pushed to its limits. With proper maintenance, these cars are extremely durable. Our eye-popping, original yellow exterior, with dark brown interior and convertible top, Mercedes 380 SL almost appears showroom new. With only two owners and 51,007 miles on the odometer, you will be hard-pressed to find a nicer 1981 Benz on the planet!
