AS ABOVE A RARE SOLID MERCEDES 380SL CONVERTIBLE! THE CAR IS IDEAL FOR RESTORATION OR DAILY USE ETC!

THIS A GENUINE ORIGINAL LHD BUILT (1981) MODEL MERCEDES 380 SL V8 2DR CONVERTIBLE FITTED WITH THE FACTORY 3.8 V8 ENGINE AND AUTO GEARBOX, FINISHED IN GREY WITH GREY LEATHER INTERIOR AND A SET OF LATER ALLOYS!.. SHOWING 205103 GENUINE MILES

CAR HAS RECENTLY BEEN IMPORTED FROM NEVADA USA WHERE IT LIVED ALL ITS LIFE, BOUGHT IN CALIFORNIA NEW. WE CANNOT CONFIRM WHATS BEEN DONE TO THE CAR BUT THE ENGINE LOOKS LIKE ITS BEEN REBUILT AND IN AMAZING CONDITION! BRAND NEW EXHAUST SYSTEM TOO, THE OWNER WAS SPENDING SOME SERIOUS MONEY ON THE CAR!

CHECK OUT THE YOUTUBE SLIDESHOW IN THE LISTING FOR OVER 40 PICS SHOWING THE CONDITION..

THE CAR IS IN 99% RUST FREE CONDITION FOR 40 YEARS OLD! THE RUNNING GEAR IS ALL FACTORY, WE HAVE NOT TRIED TO START IT AS THE FUEL WILL BE STALE AND DOES NO GOOD TO THESE , BUT THE ENGINE TURNS OVER AND THE BRAKES/STEERING ETC ALL SEEM OK.. REST OF THE RUNNING GEAR UNTESTED..

THE CAR IS COMPLETE, THE INTERIOR IS TIDY WITH ORIGINAL TRIM IN TIDY CONDITION, PASSENGER DOOR PANEL IS SHOT UNFORTUNATELY, BUT DASH IS EXCELLENT, SEAT LEATHER IS GOOD.. WOOD IS USABLE! THE OUTER BODYWORK IS STRAIGHT AS PER THE PICS AND IS SOLID AND ALL ORIGINAL.. THE UNDERNEATH IS RUST FREE SOLID AND UNTOUCHED! NO WELDING DONE ETC, WE CANT FIND ANY RUST TO BE HONEST! SLIGHT HOLE IN THE BOOT BY BY THE BATTERY BUT NOT RUST REALLY..GLASS IS ALL GOOD! HAS BEEN PAINTED A DIFFERENT GREY SO IS NOT THE ORIGINAL COLOUR BUT THE PAIT IS USABLE AS IS..

I CANNOT STRESS WHAT A GREAT SENSIBLE RESTORATION BASE THIS WOULD BE AND A CHEAP CAR DONE! YOU WONT FIND MANY SOLID ONES WITH THE ENGINE AS CLEAN AS THIS FOR THIS MONEY IN EUROPE.
