The factory winter top is included with the car and is again in perfect condition.
The interior is in fantastic condition with no signs of wear or tear, the wood is spotless and none of the plastic trim has been scratched or damaged. The boot area is very clean and the first aid kit, fire extinguisher and tools are all present. The front seats are excellent with only the tiniest amount of wear to the base of the drivers seat. All the carpets are immaculate and protected with the original Mercedes mats.  
This SL benefits from the very rare and expensive option of a factory electric soft top that is in fine working order.
This 380 SL has always been well serviced at Mercedes or at a well respected specialist and contains 21 stamps in the book. The last service was done at 68,414 miles last year and the car remains in excellent mechanical order. The engine is silky smooth and the gearbox benefited from a rebuild last year.
The alloys are in superb condition without the smallest curb mark or scratch, the tyres on the rear have recently been replaced and the fronts will be replaced in due course. The discs show minimal wear and the car stops quickly in a straight line.
The car was first registered in November 1980 and had 2 changes of ownership in the first 3 months (most likely Mercedes dealers). The first true owner kept the car for 20 years, the subsequent owner for 10 years and the current owner has had the car for 2 years.
This SL has a fantastic service history with 21 service stamps in the original service book showing light but frequent use over the last 32 years, the last service being done at 68,414 miles last year. There is also a huge file of invoices detailing all the work that has been carried out and all the parts used. To further verify the low mileage every MOT certificate and tax disk have been kept from new.
The original document holder is also present holding all the owners manuals, instructions for the CD player and the manual for the electric hood.
