About the Car

1985 Mercedes-Benz 380SL R107 Roadster

Here is the chance to ownTWO Owner (Same Owner since 1989!!!) - 61,900 ORIGINAL and Documented Miles, amazingly kept, 1985 Mercedes-Benz 380SL!!

Its desirable and extremely elegant Cabernet Red Metallic Paint shines beautifully and Powerful V8 engine with only 61,900 miles purrs and runs strong as ever. It is complimented with very expensive and desirable one-piece EUROPEAN Headlights, and 16 inch Genuine BBS Alloy wheels!!!

This beauty was just inspected and appraised at $22,000!!!!

1985 Being the last production year for the 380SL, it combined all that Mercedes learned about the V-8 R107 chassis cars into a cultural icon that quietly and confidently told the world its occupants had "arrived." Simplicity, superb build quality, and an enduring design are all hallmarks of the Mercedes 380SL. The R107 chassis was one of the longest running production bodies in the Diamler-Benz AG's line, and R107s are extremely well built and collectable. It is also the first V8 powered two-seater to be built at the Stuttgart, Germany factory.

Few vehicles are as distinctive and unique as the 107 chassis Mercedes-Benz vehicles. Although there are other vehicles that are instantly recognizable - the Gullwing Mercedes, the '57 Chevy, and the DeLorean to name a few - there is no other vehicle so classy, yet affordable as a 107 chassis Mercedes-Benz.

Now over 30 years old, 380SL's are attracting new buyers due to its iconic good looks, simplicity, and vault-like build quality.


ItsORIGINALCabernet Red Metallic paint (Paint Code 587H pajettrot) has a beautiful shine and luster, and combined with its original Burgundy leather interior this particular 380SL just looks stunning!!!

Chrome is in excellent condition, it is complete and new looking, and this beautiful roadster is a head turner and conversation piece everywhere it goes.

This Mercedes is very solid and most importantlyRUST FREE(please see pictures!!!).Body is in wonderful condition and it is straight as an arrow! All doors, hood, and trunk are operating with ease and everything lines up properly. It was never in an accident, and it has been always garaged in air conditioned garage, pampered and kept away from rain and bad weather, and it truly shows!! It was only driven and enjoyed on sunny and beautiful days!

Undercarriage is all original, unmolested, and free of any kind of undercoatings except the factory one! When you remove the road dirt inside of the fenders, original Burgundy paint is revealed, found only in handful of unmolested and original examples of R107 series!!

All ORIGINAL Factory stickersare still present, including all the factory stickers inside of the engine bay which usually get lost due to age, engine heat, miles, replacement parts, etc. (Please see pictures!!)

Factory Chassis number stamping on the front radiator support is another sign of originality of this car.

There is not a lot of 380SL's out there in this solid and amazingly kept and preserved condition!!

It is equipped with both soft top, and the hard top! ItsORIGINALMercedes-Benz soft top is in great condition, and it is very easy to operate. Hard top is also in great condition, including all the glass, and the headliner which is clean, and rips and tears free!!

Like they say "Originality is king when it comes to classic cars”!!Not only does finding a 30ish year old car that has not been altered by numerous past owners add to your enjoyment of the car; the more original features that you can substantiate the better when it comes time to sell your treasure!!!

Experienced car collectors and investors have learned that a solid, sound, original body is the most important aspect of any vintage car! Mechanical rebuilds are straight forward and not costly compared to trying to correct a previously crashed or rusted car. One cannot throw enough money at a car with a bad body to make it right or equal to a car with a great original structure like on this beauty!! Remember - Car is only original ONCE!!


OriginalBurgundy Leather interior is in excellent condition! Many of the 380SL's were equipped with vinyl MB-TEX seats, but this beauty came upgraded with leather seats from the factory! Carpet is clean and in great shape! Seats are in excellent condition as well and are very supportive and comfortable.

Original Dash is in excellent condition, free of cracks, or aftermarket plastic covers - Very rare to be found on SL's of this vintage!!!!!

Wood is also in excellent condition, with healthy gloss!!

This Mercedes comes with power windows, and they are working as they should! Even Original Becker Radio and power antenna are working!!!

Just take a look at the pictures, and you will get an idea about the condition of this car, how nicely it is kept, and how beautiful it is. It really does not get any better than this!

-Engine & Transmission

3.8 Liter V8 Engine is strong and powerful as ever withonly 61,900 DOCUMENTEDmiles on the odometer. It has no problems reaching 80MPH+ and its real blast to drive!!!

What is important is that 1985 Model Year 380SL's came with the double row timing chain straight from the factory, solving the chain failures of the earlier models.

Automatic Transmission shifts effortlessly through every gear, and it makes this SL absolute joy to drive and cruise in! This German Roadster handles great at the high speeds, and it is very comfortable.

Genuine BBS wheels are wrapped in matching Bridgestone tiers, and they make this beautiful SL float on the road!

Air Condition works as it should, and this car is ready for some topless fun!! There is nothing better than driving down the road with the top down, and the wind in your hair!!!

It comes with its original books and manuals, first aid kit, as well as with its original Tool Set! Even the original spare tire is present, and it was never on the ground - very rare to be found on a vehicle that is only few years old, let alone 34 years old!!!

This is a very nicely kept and complete Mercedes SL, that has been loved its whole life, it was never abused, and it truly shows!! Every used SL has been created equal, but there are some that have been loved just a little bit more!!!! This car is one of those SL's!!

With its rare and very desirable color combination, being in the same ownership for 30 years, in its original, amazingly kept and unmolested condition, this Mercedes represents a great investment with an amazing return! Don't let it get away!!!!!!
