This 1985 Mercedes-Benz 380SL comes with fuel-injected V8 power, both tops, all the right features (including A/C), and exceptional maintenance. It all makes for an exceptional classic convertible that also knows how to fit in your budget.

The cream white paint sets the tone right for a car like this. Glossy but not flashy, and that means subtle elegance. It shows all the right signs of being the factory application, and while the odometer reflects the car's actual mileage, the level of completeness is a reminder of the superior quality of a Mercedes-Benz. And the straightness of the sheet metal also tells you this one had been treated with respect over the decades. The chrome bumpers, bright trim, and polished wheels add the right flair. But the real premium feeling comes from the more understated pieces, like the artful line of the hood, the full-length pinstripe, and the purposeful action of the doors.

The tan leather interior is a nice complementing color to the exterior, and it also goes with the pinstripe. So it's extra encouragement to stay open to the world. But if your day turns gray, the well-fitting soft top can quickly come out from under the boot. Plus, this one comes with the optional color-matched removable hardtop for those who want a true coupe-like profile. While your roof options are first-class, that's only the beginning of the luxury. There's plenty of evidence it has lived a pampered life with the carpeting, dash, and wood grain center console all looking good. The seats have spent most of their life so far protected under sheepskin covers, and so they almost look like time capsules today. A Mercedes means terrific luxury, and so this is loaded with factory features like power windows, power locks, a tilt steering column, a power antenna, and the desirable Becker Grand Prix AM/FM/cassette stereo. There are also nice upgrades like cup holders and a rear wind deflector. And because air conditioning is so desirable in a drop-top, it's now blowing cold with modern R134a refrigerant.

The 3.8-liter SOHC V8 under the hood has a stock and original style. A long maintenance file shows that it has been given the right attention, and the way this fuel-injected motor fires up readily proves this proper care. So this powerhouse knows how to uphold the Mercedes reputation of sturdy luxury cruisers. This car also earns its status with great driving features like a four-speed automatic transmission w/overdrive comfort, a well-balanced fully independent suspension, power steering, and four-wheel power disc brakes.

The sale comes complete with the maintenance records and nice extras like a car cover. This is an affordable and sturdy luxury classic that provides enjoyable top-down motoring. Call today!!!
