1983 Mercedes Benz

380 SL Roadster

Midnight Blue with Palomino Tan leather interior, Tan carpeting and Blue cloth convertible top, 60,000 miles from new, Four-speed Automatic, Factory Midnight Blue hard top.

First introduced in 1980, the 380SL was the latest in a long line of sporting roadsters from Mercedes Benz that combined V-8 power, refined luxury, and open-top motoring. Compared to the predecessor 450SL the 380SLs smaller 3.8 Liter V-8 engine was tuned for efficiency, not performance. However, the weight savings of the smaller block resulted in similar performance numbers making the 155HP 380SL a popular car during its five-year production run.

This exceptional 380SL is a 3-owner example from new and has seen only seasonal usage over the last 20 years. It is equipped with both tops, a Becker Grand Prix radio and comes with all the original books, manuals, and tools. It recently received a maintenance service including oil change, A/C refresh, and a new battery. It has been meticulously maintained and cared for and includes service records since new including documented correction of the common timing chain issue.

With its classic lines, sporty demeanor, V-8 power and unrivalled service history, this 380SL is one of the finest we have owned and presents an excellent opportunity to purchase a timeless Mercedes Benz Roadster.
