Classic Car Overview

If you are in the market for an early luxurious Mercedes 380SL that has been taken care of and carries with it a ton of pride of ownership... Then this is it! The question with any Mercedes from any generation is always the same - How well has it been maintained over the years? This Mercedes is a perfect example of how long these cars will remain looking incredible if someone takes care of them. Showing just under 110,000 miles. This car has only been driven sparingly over its 25 year life, averaging only 4,400 miles driven per year. The current owner purchased the car in 1992 and has every receipt that he has spent on the car since then! He believes himself to be just the second owner of this meticulous car! The current owner of the car has owned it since 1992! Lets start with the body that looks incredible in the original Sahara Gold. The car was professionally repainted in 2001 to the tune of $14,000! And it still shows extremely well today. At this point the owner replaced all the oldings and in bump or ding was fixed while the car was down to the metal. As you can tell, the car does include a hard top and soft top that are in great shape. Mechanically is where this car shines. Pop open the hood and youll see just how clean the engine bay is. This is because the owners of this car maintained it very well. I cant tell you how many oil change receipts I have seen in their documentation since theyve owned it from 1992. In fact, in 2008 the owner had the engine professionally removed and had a complete gasket set installed to ensure that this gorgeous car didnt leave any puddles behind. This was only 3,000 miles ago! They also pulled the transmission at this time and did a complete gasket set on the tranny as well. Ultimately, this Mercedes presents alot of bang for your buck! Shes ready for the open road and is ready for the next owner to continue the great history this car already has. Please call with any questions 704-663-0432 DOES IT WORK?
