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. Sure the mileage might be a little high, but this 380 carries with it receipts showing that it has been maintained extremely well. Lets start with the body that looks incredible in the original white color. The car was professionally repainted in the early 2000s and it still shows extremely well today. The chrome on the car is original and in good shape considering its 35 years old. The moldings around the windows have been replaced around the time the car was painted. Yes the car does include a hard top and soft top, however the soft top is original and showing some age. But lets be honest, how often are you going to have the soft top up anyway? Mechanically is where this car shines. Pop open the hood and youll see just how clean the engine bay is for 180k mile vehicle. Its because the owners of this car maintainted it very well. The question everyone has on these 380s is has the timing chain been replaced? And thankfully with this car the timing chain was replaced in 1999 when the car had just short of a 150k miles. During that time they also went ahead and replaced the Timing Chain tensioner, air filter, fuel filter, distributor cap, ignition rotor, ignition cable, valve cover gaskets, transistor ignition box, pick up coil, fuel pump and relay, and the master cylinder. The result is a car that fires up easy and is a blast to drive. They didnt stop there though, if you look under the car youll see a new transmission that today only has 30k miles on it, new steering box, new flex joints, new fuel tank breather hoses and a new transmission mount. 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.
