The matching door panels are in good condition and the dash pad is free of cracks or sun damage. All of the gauges (oil pressure, temperature, gas gauge) work, as does all of the safety equipment (lights, wipers, horn, seat belts, etc.). The tachometer and speedometer are also functioning. The clock works as does the cruise control. Of course the factory air conditioning works properly and blows cold. Overall, this is one of the nicest 1983 Mercedes Benz 380 SL Roadsters that we've come across in quite some time.A fabulous example of Mercedes' luxury sports car, this Red and Black beauty is an exceedingly well-kept, extremely low-mileage and always-garaged example of the great SL line. This car came from the factory with the 3.8 liter fuel-injected V-8 engine. With only 69,335 miles, it eagerly starts at the turn of the key, idles smoothly and pulls strongly. The automatic transmission shifts cleanly and smoothly, just as one would expect from a premier luxury sports car. The brakes function very well, the car stops quickly without pulling to either side. Out on the open road, it feels like a modern sports car with nice acceleration, tight handling and just a great overall feel. It is quick, comfortable, eye-catching and, not to be forgotten, fun to drive.The car is fully equipped with Power steering, Power disc brakes, Cruise control, Power windows, Power locks, original Becker AM/FM/Cassette stereo. The convertible's soft top is in great condition. The raising and lowering mechanism works properly and, when lowered, the top stows under a fiberglass/metal boot. The chrome and stainless trim is in very good to excellent condition. All of the windows are in great condition and operate correctly with their power assists. The body of the car is free of any rust issues. The matching door panels are in good condition and the dash pad is free of cracks or sun damage. All of the gauges (oil pressure, temperature, gas gauge) work, as does all of the safety equipment (lights, wipers, horn, seat belts, etc.). The tachometer and speedometer are also functioning. The clock works as does the cruise control.
