1982 Mercedes Benz 380SL Convertible with Hard Top

If you like the SL series from the 80’s, you will fall in love with this car. This car looks great and is fun to drive. It turns heads and sparks conversations anywhere it goes. I bought the car a couple of years ago and the odometer was not working. It drives and looks nice inside and out so I never worried too much about the miles. We are a family of 3 and this is a two seater so I don't use it much, but I use it at least once per week. The car is in great shape for its age and it is reliable. I replaced the hard top when I bought it and I have the hard top as well. The interior is nice and has an old analog phone. If you look at the details the car is original so it can use some upgrading before it can compete up close with similar cars at $28,000.

What it needs: Its about time for a paint job. Although its shiny, the trunk area and the rear bumper areas tend to rust on these, so I would take care of that and probably move towards a weather strip change while you're at it. The pictures are recent so you can see the car really looks nice, but up close you can easily point out the things that need to be restored. Other that it has a good strong engine, no leaks, and drives nice.

Specs datasheet with technical data and performance data plus an analysis of the direct market competition of Mercedes-Benz 380 SL in 1982, the model with 2-door convertible body and V-8 3839 cm3 / 233.9 cui engine size, 115.5 kW / 157 PS / 155 hp (SAE net) of power, 4-speed automatic powertrain for North America U.S.. Specifications listing with fuel economy, top speed, performance factory data and ProfessCars™ estimation: this Mercedes-Benz would accelerate 0-60 mph in 10.7 sec, 0-100 km/h in 11.3 sec and quarter mile time is 18.2 sec.

The most noticeable change for 1982 107s was the updating of interior switchgear to the more modern appearance introduced on 1980 S-class sedans and 1981 E-class models. Switches were now black plastic, heating controls were streamlined, and chrome trim pieces were dropped.

The freshened switch gear immediately made previous interiors seem like something from the 1950s. Looking quite elegant, the 1982 look lasted through ’89. While this sounds like a minor change, the difference is noticeable enough to be more of a tiebreaker than you think.
