4610 Pet Lane
This classic 1984 Mercedes 380SL comes with ideal original color combination, both tops, fuel-injected V8 power, and quality vintage presentation...and yet you don't have to pay over $15k to take true timeless luxury home.
The design of the R107 series Mercedes SL was regal from day one, and now it has matured into a true symbol of an upper-crust classic. It only gets better when you see one like this that has always been treated with the respect it deserves. The paint was given a respray of the factory-correct white to make sure it retains a nice gloss in the sunshine. The mirror-like chrome on the bumpers add to this radiance, and unique baroque alloy wheels complete the package you expect from an iconic 1980s Mercedes. The look of quality also comes from an exceptionally straight body thanks to the Teutonic tightness of these legendary overbuilt cars. There's also plenty of style within the substance. The black roof has a good look as it tastefully contrasts the body while simultaneously coordinating with the black bumper guards. You also get the color-matched hardtop for those times when you want a true coupe silhouette.
For the same reason why we find the black folding roof so appealing, you're also going to love the full black interior. The dash, doors, carpeting, sun visors, and optional leather seats have a deep color that furthers the evidence that this one has lived a pampered life. And the glossy wood trim does a great job of breaking up this darkness with a warm tone. There are plenty of the best in factory luxury, including power windows, cruise control, power antenna, and the desirable Becker Grand Prix AM/FM/cassette stereo. The factory air conditioning is still present but will need servicing to blow cold again. This car is so well preserved, you even get extras that are hard to find in other classic Benzes, like the correct style tool kit and the original first aid kit is still in its special compartment behind seats.
The 3.8-liter V8 under the hood has the clean look of a well-respected classic. This SOHC and fuel-injected motor was built to continue the Mercedes tradition of torque-filled powerhouses that can pull ahead with grace. 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 power disc brakes, and this is a true grand touring machine.
The sale comes with impressive paperwork like the original window sticker and full owner's manual packet. This proves that you're looking at a true upper-class vintage Mercedes for quite a nice price. Call today!!!
