When it comes to real-world affordable cars, none are better engineered than a Seventies or Eighties Mercedes. Hagerty media describes the 380SL model this way: 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 forebears the 380SL was a heady mix of V-8 power, refined luxury, and sporty underpinnings, and it was 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. The new engine was designed with emissions controls in mind while the 450SL's mill was not, which meant that the two engines were relatively equal in terms of power (155 hp in the 380SL vs. 160 hp in the 450SL) despite the difference in their displacements. Performance was similar for the two cars, as was fuel economy. Offered here in silver-blue exterior paint over blue leather is an all-original, very-low-mileage, perfectly understated luxury Mercedes (R107) two-seater. The condition of the car's cosmetics and mechanicals show how consistent and quality maintenance of these classic automobiles can extend their life almost indefinitely. With just 44,138 Carfax-verified, accident-free miles (a mere 1,131 miles per-year on average), it's clear this 380SL was always a special-night-out, trip to the college football game, or fall-color-tour conveyance, rather than an everyday driver. And that's good news for its next owner. The car's specifications and options lists are as follows: VIN WDBBA45A8CB017876 Model Year 1982 Model 380 SL Engine 116962 12 008349 Transmission 722312 02 236291 Order Number 0 2 705 42482 Order Location UNITED STATES (USA) Production Number 2707208 Interior LEATHER - BLUE (232A) Paint 1 SILVER BLUE METALLIC (930U) Paint 2 SILVER BLUE METALLIC (930O) Delivery Date 1982-07-07 Mercedes Benz VIN decoded at Code Description 440 TEMPOMAT (CRUISE CONTROL) 467 CENTRAL LOCKING MECHANISM AND INSTRUMENTS WITH ENGLISH LETTERING 491 U.S. VERSION 502 OUTSIDE REAR VIEW MIRROR, ON THE RIGHT 519 BECKER RADIO MEXICO GRAND PRIX, ELECTRONIC (USA) 531 AUTOMATIC ANTENNA 570 FOLDING ARMREST, FRONT 581 AUTOMATIC CLIMATE CONTROL 583 ELECTRIC WINDOW LIFTERS (FRONT DOORS) 587 AUTOMATIC CLIMATE CONTROL AND ELECTRIC WINDOW LIFTERS (FRONT DOORS) 592 HEAT-INSULATING GLASS, ALL-AROUND, HEATED REAR WINDOW PANE, BAND FILTER 639 ELIMINATION OF FIRST-AID BOX AND WARNING TRIANGLE 640 15-HOLE LIGHT ALLOY RIMS 744 DARK BLUE SOFT TOP FABRIC 5010 802 CHANGE OF MODEL YEAR, THE LAST FIGURE SHOWING THE NEW MODEL YEAR The car's exterior retains a like- new appearance.
