There are certain cars that will always be iconic.  Although time progresses and tastes change, some cars will forever be recognized and desired.  One such model was Mercedes-Benz’s legendary SL roadster—a design so classic and popular among buyers that it remained virtually unchanged over its celebrated 18 year production run.

This gorgeous 1983 Mercedes-Benz 380 SL is finished in Black and has a beautiful luster.  The finish is further enhanced by its dual tone Gray and Crimson pinstripes.  It also features both a Black hardtop and a Black soft convertible top that are in very good condition.  Its chrome bumpersdual exhaust, and classic alloy wheels complete the look.

The interior of the car tells a similar story of sportiness and refinement.  Finished in Black, this car’s monochromatic appearance is striking.  The interior, including the door panels, seating areas, dashboard, and carpeting, is in very good condition, exhibiting minimal wear.  You will also appreciate this cars many comfort and convenience items, including the following:

Under the hood you will find a fuel injected 3.8 liter V-8 engine that is mated to a 4-speed automatic transmission.  This powerplant affords smooth and powerful performance, long hallmarks of Mercedes-Benz’s engineering heritage.  Best of all, this car runs and drives as well as it looks, having benefitted from the following recent maintenance:

One item of note is that total mileage is not known.  In addition, the finish has some imperfections that do not detract from the overall appearance of the car.  Lastly, a small 2” tear in the soft top near the passenger’s side door should be noted.
