Description for Mercedes-Benz 380SL 1985

This 1985 Mercedes-Benz 380SL is a well-maintained and heavily invested luxury machine that is in a great color combo and still on its original V8. So it's the right machine for someone looking for a classic that has been babied for the last 35 years.
The green is the perfect hue for this Mercedes. The earthtone instantly lends itself to a vintage feeling on this classic, but once the sunshine hits it, there's a metallic element that looks fantastic. This is thanks to a large investment in this Mercedes over the years (we have $21k in receipts for this car, and $7k is just for the exterior alone.) So it looks like a classic paintjob, but it radiates plenty of modern luster in the sunlight exactly what you want on a sunshine-friendly droptop. And this one even looks good with the black folding roof in place. The way the darkness looks against the green, and how the roof matches the bumpers, it gives the total package a very uniform feeling. Of course, it also doesn't hurt that the body is exceptionally straight thanks to legendary Mercedes reputation. No other convertible from this era has this level of build quality, and you experience it every time the doors shut with authority. And more than just purchasing excellence, this one is attractive for its distinctive features, like the bright fender flares and later-model 15-inch alloy wheels.
As much as we like the way this one looks with the roof in place, the green coordinates even better with the tan interior. If this looks fresher than any other 35-year-old car you've seen before, that's because this one has had some nice investments later in life. This includes new carpeting, door panel skins, floor mats, chrome threshold, and side panels. Even the leather bucket seats were recovered in 2015. And if you want extra appeal, there are sheepskin covers that comes with the sale, too. Investing in this Benz also means all the luxury features work. This includes power windows, power locks, and the correct Becker Grand Prix stereo. You even have cold-blowing air conditioning to make sure you and your passenger can cruise without breaking a sweat even deep into the summer season. But if the weather does turn grey for a while, the matching hardtop gives you a great coupe-like profile. The rest of the time, it stows nicely on its rolling holder.
The 3.8-liter SOHC V8 is the original motor with the car, and the engine bay looks like it has been the poster child for regular maintenance we have the records to prove it. And when you know the reputation of a well-kept Mercedes, then you are confident that this SL can drive to the moon and back. The pampering of this car is so thorough, you can even tell just by looking at the tidy undercarriage. On the road, the four-speed automatic clicks through the gears in a businesslike fashion. The fully independent suspension soaks up bumps with a well-dampered feeling that somehow never isolates the sporting nature that's entertaining on a twisty country road. This is the perfect weekend getaway car as the miles are effortless thanks to features like power steering and four-wheel disc brakes.
This is the perfect affordable classic that looks good pulling up to the club and can carry your weekend bags with ease. So this machine fits an opulent lifestyle, and with the money you save, you can now afford the all the luxuries around you. Don't miss out, call today!
