1982 Mercedes-Benz 380SL (1982)
The SLs of this era (the 107 chassis) really established themselves as an icon of quality and success on the Continent as well as the Americas. Unlike the previous SL range, these cars were rugged and durable and could accumulate high mileage and still remain reliable with just the most basic of care. The first of the generation was the 350SL, a car that is now beginning to occupy a strong place in the hearts of Mercedes-Benz collectors, it was the original pure design with no emissions equipment to speak of, small plated bumpers and manual windows.
Being lighter and unrestricted from an emissions standpoint meant the cars were lively performers as well as quiet and comfortable touring cars. Following the discontinuation of the SLC in September 1981, the 107 series continued initially as the 280, 380 and 500 SL. At this time, the V8 engines were re-tuned for greater efficiency.
This one-owner car is described as being a very well preserved, unmolested and almost perfect condition example. Offered with a classic data report with a condition 2, German TUV valid until May 2020, German papers and ready to be registered with a classic plate (H-Kennzeichen).
In 2017, the car has been extensively restored which included repainting it in the original colour of Silver-blue metallic (930) alongside a long-list of mechanical work. Invoices and summary can be found in the car’s extensive history-file.
