4610 Pet Lane
This 1984 Mercedes-Benz 380SL is about timeless style, cool upgrades, and the overall luxury of a V8-power luxury convertible that comes with all the right extras (including both roofs.) So it's great you can get it all for a value price.
This car is all about a well-coordinated look. The factory-correct Silver Blue Metallic has a nice gloss and shine that works well for a sunshine-friendly convertible. But any time that you need to have a roof in place, the folding soft top is a darker blue that harmonizes with the paint, and gives it this an upper-class European look. And the optional color-matched hardtop has the precision fit that makes this look like a coupe. And speaking of precision, these R107 SLs were built to a higher standard. That's why the sheetmetal lines keep a quality look with the hood, trunk, and doors all still closing with a quality fit. Plus, this example has some added distinction with genuine wire wheels and the Euro-style flush headlights.
The same sort of harmonized blue continues inside. The carpeting, door panels, and dash are all a nice color that follow the stock style. The seats are a lighter shade, and so they show off their newer nature. It's an interesting touch that all goes with this coordinated full blue package. It makes for driver-ready classic, and that's what a good Mercedes convertible is exactly ready to do. The steering wheel has the ideal kind of grip that makes your hands feel relaxed; the VDO gauges are crisp and clear; and the this has the size and ride quality that's ready for grand touring comfort. Of course, there's proper luxury in a Benz with power windows, a German Blaupunkt AM/FM/cassette stereo, R134a air conditioning (will need servicing), and cruise control.
The 3.8-liter SOHC fuel-injected V8 looks clean, complete, and well maintained. 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 tight-handling 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 classic for those who like to drive.
The sale comes complete with the reproduction window sticker, maintenance records, and owner's manual. This is the kind of classic Benz you've always dreamed of owning, and so feature-filled style has never been obtainable. Call today!!!
