1981 Mercedes-Benz 300-Series 2 Dr Convertible Description:

Good records, highly original, and plenty of the right investments - this 1983 Mercedes-Benz 380SL is the affordable drop top luxury classic that has everything you want. Mercedes built these R107 SLs correct from day one, so if you find a well-preserved example like this, age is barely a factor. Super straight sheet metal, complete trim, and German-engineered precision in the panel fit tell you that you're looking at a proper classic Mercedes. Plus, the factory white paint still has a nice gloss and shine - more proof of quality workmanship and a well-respected life. Even the details are nice with the brown pinstripe, upgraded third brake lights, and iconic factory alloys. Capping off this premium appearance is a nice coco brown folding roof, and there's also an exterior, color-matched hardtop whenever you want a coupe-like profile. While having two roof options makes this car ideal, we all know these SLs are best when topless. So you want a well-matched color like the premium tan leather. Plus, the wood on the console and dash looks terrific (even the exterior pinstripe is part of the coordinated package.) But what also makes this car so desirable is it retains all the features that makes it a true luxury machine. This includes conveniences such as power windows, cruise control, and the correct Becker AM/FM/cassette stereo. The air conditioning was even converted to R134a to make sure you can comfortably cruise with the top down for years to come. The 3.8-liter SOHC fuel-injected V8 is the original motor. Plus, there are over $10k in maintenance receipts for servicing within the last five years. So not only does the engine bay appear like a well-maintained classic, we have the paperwork that tells you it runs as good as it looks. That gives you the confidence to enjoy this classic European machine to its fullest. The fully independent suspension knows how to offer the perfect balance between a supple ride and back roads fun. The same goes for the four-speed automatic that has precision shifts and highway-friendly overdrive. Add in features like power steering and four-wheel disc brakes, and this is a true grand touring machine. Besides the aforementioned service record file, the sale also comes with the owner's manual and title documentation. This proves that you're looking at a cut-above classic for quite a nice price.
