For Sale: 1985 Mercedes-Benz 380SL in O'Fallon, Illinois

Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars of Houston is proud to present this 1985 Mercedes 380 SL. The Mercedes-Benz SL-Class is a grand touring sports car manufactured by Mercedes-Benz since 1954. The designation SL derives from the German Sport-Leicht, translating to Sport Light in English. In 1971 the R107 was introduced with new design language and safety features that spread to the subsequent Mercedes-Benz models. For the first time, the V8 engines were fitted to the SL-Class. The R107 received its first update in 1985 with deeper front air dam, revised brake system with larger disc and four-caliber brakes and driver's side airbag. The 5-mph bumpers and four round sealed-beam headlamps fitted to the US models remained unchanged from the previous generation. Even as a classic this SL retains all the features that make it a true luxury machine, including conveniences such as power windows, power locks, AM/FM/CD radio and cruise control. This classic is colored in Cabernet with a beautiful Burgundy leather interior. The 3.8-liter V8 long block has been replaced and the 4-speed automatic transmission was rebuilt around ten thousand miles ago, making this convertible ready for the miles to roll by. While having two roof options of a hard-top and a soft-top makes this car ideal, we all know these SLs are best when the top comes off. This is the perfect weekend getaway car as the miles are effortless thanks to features like power steering and four-wheel power disc brakes.
