Vehicle description

Model history:

As a successor to the increasingly antique-looking Pagoda, the Mercedes-Benz SL of the 107 model series came onto the market in 1971. Unlike its predecessor, the model was available both as a coupé with a longer wheelbase and as a roadster. Initially, V8 engines with 3.5 and 4.5 liter displacement served as propulsion, later six-cylinder models were added. The SL of the R 107 model series quickly became a great sales success, especially in the USA. The model remained in the Mercedes range for around 18 years and was continuously included in current technical developments. By 1989, just over 237,000 roadsters of the 107 model series had been sold.

General information about the vehicle:

In this auction, a Mercedes-Benz 380 SL of the R 107 model series from 1985 can now be purchased, which originally comes from the USA and was imported to Germany. A total of 6 owners counts the roadster with the VIN WDBBA45C3FA020356 according to seller statements, the so-called matching numbers are given and a partial history - which includes among other things a kept checkbook - can be presented for this 380 SL. The vehicle is already in possession of an H-approval, the last completed main inspection is valid until August 2023.

Exterior colour/varnish/body:

The paint colour of this Mercedes-Benz 380 SL is called "Light Ivory Unilack". The paint has white shades in several places, including the fuel cap and right-front fenders. The paint is chipped off in some places. The extensive image documentation allows more detailed insights. After consultation with the current owner of the car can confirm an accident-free in the current possession. According to the current owner, the most serious defects on the exterior are a defective rubber buffer at the back of the bumper and the sill strip at the front right must be renewed. All add-on parts on the vehicle are completely preserved and the chrome of the Mercedes-Benz still shines as it should. The hood can apparently be taken from a well-preserved condition. In order to get a detailed picture of the exterior condition, the pictures and videos of the vehicle are available.

Exterior rims/brakes/chassis:

On so-called baroque alloy rims, tires in a condition of 50-70% are mounted, the brakes attest the current owner of the 380 SL a condition assessment of also 50-70%. Inconsistencies in the area of the chassis can obviously not be listed.

Interior:

In keeping with the bright exterior colour of this roadster, the interior is also kept in a light colour - in leather "date". Only a few elements in the interior such as the 4-spoke steering wheel, the upper part of the dashboard and the shift gate including automatic selector lever are in black. The driver's seat has a crack in the seat bolster. The interior shows signs of age-typical wear in some places. After deciphering the optional equipment codes of this Mercedes-Benz, the following equipment features are on board: outside temperature display, cruise control, ABS, automatic antenna, armrest foldable front, automatic climate control, electric front windows. As a radio there is an accessory radio in this 380 SL. All instruments and displays have a complete function and the soft top can also be operated perfectly.

Mileage

In addition to many invoices from the years up to the early 1990s, the checkbook has also been partially kept. Thus, according to the seller, the mileage of the Mercedes-Benz Roadster of 146,500 miles can be approximately proven.

Engine

The 3.8-liter V8 engine delivers 155 hp, and power is transmitted to the rear wheels by means of a 4-speed automatic transmission. Final service work took place in March 2022.

Subsoil:

Given the overall mileage of the vehicle, a well-preserved condition can be taken from the underbody. No generation of the Mercedes-Benz SL ran longer than the R 107 model series - in the past as well as today, these roadsters are among the most popular classic cars on our roads. The 380 SL offered here impresses above all with its V8 engine and its bright colour combination and can be fully enjoyed with the soft top open.
