Here is a beautiful 1984 Mercedes-Benz 380 SL Roadster. This MB was purchased brand new at Manhattan Motors, NY in 1984 maintained and serviced by its two caring owners. It was purchased by its 2nd owner in 1985 when only a year old and taken to Chicago where it was climate control stored and only driven in spring and summer. Never exposed to elements. The car had an original sales price of $60,780 all the way back in 1984! This car has been driven extremely sparingly during 36 years of .....
ownership. That tells you just how pristine this 380 actually is. This car is also the first year of 107 double timing chain 3.8L which solved the reliability problem. That makes the beautiful Classic White example quite rare! These low mile European classics are getting quickly swallowed up by hungry collectors looking for the next wave of ultra collectible MB classics. An 800 mile 1988 SL just sold for $134,000 on Bring a Trailer! Dont miss your chance to put this one in your investment portfolio!

-3.8L 218hp V8 Engine

The body on the car is in pristine condition and was extremely well maintained. The car is finished in its gorgeous original Mercedes color of Classic White and is in awesome condition. The car is straight as an arrow and looks spectacular. The car has been completely inspected underneath from front to back and is solid as a rock as any collector car should be. The car is riding on the original 14'' wheels with the correct Michelin tires that are still in good shape! The original windshield is like new with no chips. The navy German Cloth soft top is brand new and in great condition with no rips or ware. The hard top has good seals and the headliner is in awesome shape.
The interior is in great shape all around. The dash and door panels are in like new condition. The supple original navy blue leather seats are all in very good condition and look very nice with no rips or ware lines, which shows the quality of leather used in this car. The carpets are all very nice are not worn or damaged. All dials and controls function as they should, power windows and antenna also are fully functional. Music is crisp and clear and not overwhelming. The sound system definitely adds to the driving experience of this roadster. All lights, gauges switches, and accessories work as they should. This interior is in immaculate condition and wood trim through out is perfect. The floor mats are a very nice set of Lloyds mats with custom MBZ embroidery!
The trunk compartment is clean enough to eat from. The spare tire compartment is clean as a whistle and the original spare tire is present. Original jack is in place and the complete tool kit is even still in the spare tire well.
Mechanically, this SL runs GREAT! The car starts right up and shifts smooth as silk. It drives as good now as the day it rolled of the lot. The V8 engine is surprisingly quick and responsive. It is reliable, easy to fix, and parts are readily available. The car was always regularly serviced by Schumacher Mercedes in Scottsdale and has been well documented up until 27000 miles.This 380's most recent trip to the dealer in Mid 2018 was for a new fuel pump, injectors, fuel system cleaning, full power steering overhaul, R12 AC service with new compressor, engine rear main seal, transmission front seal and service, new rear muffler and much more. Over $10,000 was spent! Recent inspection upon arrival to CSC yields a clean bill of health. Under the hood is clean as a whistle and looks like new. I just had the oil changed and the car given a once over and its all ready to hit the road with the brand new top dropped! I will put my personal stamp of approval on the mechanical excellence of the car.

All in all, this is one of the cleanest and nicest SL's that I have had the privilege of being associated with. I truly feel it is one of the nicest 380sl's in existence and I will put it next to any of the lower mileage examples and it will hold its own. It has been professionally maintained and truly loved by its previous owner. This Mercedes is a fantastic car for the price and includes every option offered in this car. This is your chance to get an like new classic convertible for a fraction of the cost of its original price. The car has a clean Arizona Title and a clean Carfax and Autocheck.
