If you are looking for a classic Mercedes with a great history, low miles, and in excellent shape it is difficult to find something better than this 1981 380SL! Purchased brand new by the current owners parents in 1981, this car was picked up directly from the Stuttgart plant in Germany and was driven through the country-side before being shipped back to California where it remained for most of its life. The original blue paint still looks great after all these years and pairs very well with the tan interior that looks like it was hardly used. Topping it all off the original drive train only has 35,974 miles on it and has been maintained closely since it was new. Within the last couple of years maintenance included a set of new tires and a tune up. Once behind the wheel of this 380SL, you will be amazed at nice everything has held up for almost 40 years! The 3.8L V8 fires up quickly with the turn of a key and purrs nicely at idle. The automatic transmission shifts smoothly between gears, the steering is tight, and the suspension offers a smooth ride. This 1981 Mercedes 380SL is the best of all worlds and may be an excellent option if you are looking for something that has a lot of room for appreciation while still loving it and enjoying it! This vehicle is located in our Denver showroom.
