Back in the Seventies, two doors, convertibles, and sports cars were a thing, and obviously, Mercedes-Benz didn’t miss out. In 1971, Mercedes released a fun little sports car and grand tourer called the SL, but little did they know it would turn out to be the second longest series to be produced after the G-Class. Back to the SL series, Mercedes released a few different versions, one of them being the 380SL on display today. Speaking of which, this 1982 Mercedes Benz 380SL is up for sale for those looking to experience a little bit of old school European performance.
Understand this. Yes, the 380SL is a sports car, but it’s also very much a Mercedes-Benz. Put away flashy colors, and you’re left with a beautiful tan exterior paint. Stare at it long enough and you’d see the retro chrome bits hinting at a time where bling was cool. One look to long and you start to notice how a German automaker mixed luxury with finesse. This car says it all. On a serious note, a lot of cars may look impressive when you look at it from outside, but that amount of nostalgia is usually not brought within the cabin. But what if the car you stepped into greeted you with high quality leather and a two tone cabin? What if 1982 was today and you were cruising in a 380SL? Sit in this, and that’s where you’ll be taken.
This 1982 Mercedes-Benz 380SL summons power from a 3.8L V8; they produced 215hp when new, but this example comes with some recently replaced parts. These include a new transmission kit, a new cylinder, a new brake master with a recent fluid oil change, a new water pump, spark plugs, fuel injector and intake, new gaskets and valves, a new radiator and heat and cooling system, as well as a brand new odometer.
