1985 Mercedes-Benz 300-Series 1985 MERCEDES BENZ 380 SL Additional Info:

Offered for sale, from KURT TANNER MOTORCARS, is this very original and honest 380 SL. This car was just purchased from an older owner here in the Newport Beach area of Southern California. It was purchased new here in Irvine, California and has only had 3 owners from new, being almost exclusively maintained by the local Mercedes dealers. After a 10 year hibernation in this gentle climate, the car came back to life with a fresh battery, fuel, and pump and now runs and drives quite well.The body on this car is excellent, straight, and rustfree. The silver paintwork appears good, but there is some clearcoat age issues, some light checking along the car's sides. It's only really noticeable in the right light/angle. The car's brightwork and rubber looks good, along with the original glass. The hardtop is very nice. The car's black cloth German soft top is nearly mint, being professionally installed just before the car was stored.The car's interior received new seat covers just before the car was stored, as well. The rest of the the interior looks very good, clean, and original. The dashboard is showing some smaller cracks, but can be professionally rectified with our vinyl repair service (approx. $400) or the cheaper solution is a dash cap. Both look good.Mechanically, the car starts up quickly on the key, runs, drives, and stops well, idles nicely, behaves properly. Recent additions include a new battery, fuel pump. We are currently fitting a nice quality tire set to the car. I'm sure the A/C system will require a recharge to operate properly.Overall, a super honest, original and very presentable California SL in a fantastic and striking color scheme, with a 3-owner traceable history from new. This car is very good value and includes a host of original paperwork and maintenance receipts, jack, tools, mint original spare tire. A sensible buy going forward to drive and enjoy.
