Car description

First time ever offered here for sale and a beautiful Christmas gift to treat yourself or a loved one to, We are selling Grandma's original condition and documented 2 owner classic 1985 Mercedes Benz 380SL roadster/convertible simply because she is no longer able to drive and the car is just sitting in the garage doing nothing, Grandpaw purchased this car for her in April of 2004 from the original owner w/82,500 miles, It now has 89,891 miles, Due to her illness the car has not been cranked and driven since the summer of 2014 (Hence the reason we have it listed as a "fixer-upper") We have installed a new battery and cranked the car however it does not want to continue to run, We called and were told by the Mercedes mechanic at the dealership that it is more than likely old/bad gas? faulty fuel pump? clogged filter/filters? sparkplugs/tuneup? or possibly as simple as a clogged screen or a blown fuse? Easily repairable and simply things needing to be checked from sitting and not being driven for a few years, Basically needs some time spent with a mechanic to run again as it was running and driving flawlessly when parked, Very well maintained and taken care of, Sits on Michelin tires but dry rot is visible and in my opinion it would be a good idea to replace them, Never rawhided or abused, Both owners were non smokers therefore the ashtray and cigarette lighter have never been used, Beautiful diamond blue exterior w/royal blue leather interior, Dark blue convertible top, (As expected on a car this age you will find some minor nicks and scratches in the paint however it still presents very well) All original glass is good, Very clean inside and out including the engine/engine compartment and undercarriage which does not show any signs of oil leaks, Southern car it's entire life, Never subjected to salty roads or climates, Rust free body and undercarriage, Garage kept/pampered, Overall a great classic for an upcoming Christmas gift that can be purchased very reasonable right here on EBAY like it sits, Father/son/daughter wintertime fixer-upper? Birthday gift? Possible quick delivery before Christmas for $1.00 a loaded mile within a certain distance, Feel free to contact Paul at 901-219-9569 with any questions, If no answer please leave a detailed message and i will call you back, Bidders with zero/less than 10 positive feedback must contact me before bidding or i will cancel your bid/bids, Bank wire transfer preferred for payment as it is the quickest and safest method of payment for both the buyer and the seller, If you cannot follow our payment instructions please look elsewhere, Sold in as-is condition with a clean clear Tennessee title still in the 2nd owners/Grandpaws name, Thanks again for looking and bidding on this very nice classic Mercedes.
Note: Shown below is the prices from the latest NADA value guide starting right at $15k and climbing to over $31k for this classic in number 1 condition and can be bought for a fraction of that right here on EBAY. Rare classic! Rare opportunity! Collector car! Great investment! Look it over good! If interested this will not last long so feel free to make an offer and/or bid to win.

Due to a tremendous amount of emails and phonecalls wanting to know about a "buy it now" price we now have one listed very well below the lowest retail value. We also have a hardtop from another SL Mercedes which needs a new rear glass and repainted diamond blue which we will include. If not sold here we will have the car repaired for the buyers interested and asking about purchasing it running. Thanks again for all of the interest!!
