Vehicle description

Model history:

The SL of the 1970s is undoubtedly an icon of Mercedes-Benz's SL history: the R 107, which came onto the market in 1971. With the long production period, which lasted a full 18 years, the 107 is the longest-built series from Mercedes-Benz. This led to a wide variety of models and at the same time to an unbelievable number of over 237,000 roadsters. In addition, it is the first SL that no longer gets the "W" for car as the type code, but an "R" for roadster. Of course, safety continues to be a top priority in the 3rd generation of the Mercedes-Benz SL: the belt whips disappear, ABS is available from 1980, and even a driver's airbag is available as an option from 1982.

General information about the vehicle:

In this auction, a Mercedes-Benz of the 107 series from 1982 is now being offered for auction: This is the 380 SL model, which is an import from the USA with the VIN WDBBA45A4CB009712, is now in Austria, comes from 3rd hand and currently does not have a TÜV. The so-called matching numbers are assumed by the current owner - in addition, the seller can confirm that the current possession is free of accidents. A checkbook for this partially restored R 107 is available after consultation with the seller - but this is not completely kept.

Exterior paint/paint/body:

The paint colour of this Mercedes-Benz 380 SL from first registration in 1982 shines dark red: according to the seller, repainting cannot be ruled out. Visually, the R 107 presents itself in a solid condition without modifications in view of the age of the vehicle - in addition, all add-on parts and trim elements should be preserved in complete condition after consultation with the seller. If you want to turn this roadster into a coupe, a hardtop in body color is included in very good condition. The folding roof of this Mercedes-Benz is also in very good condition.

Exterior rims/brakes/chassis:

So-called "manhole cover" alloy wheels carry tires on this 380 SL, which, according to the current owner, are still about 30-50% of their new condition. The seller also gives the brake system a constitution of 30-50%. He also mentions that the wheel suspension and the shock absorbers have defects.

Interior:

Beige leather in the interior harmonizes perfectly with the exterior color of the roadster. In addition to the top of the dashboard, the steering wheel and the shift gate are also black. Various wood applications in the interior create a noble ambience. Obviously, the interior of this Mercedes-Benz is in a neat condition without any gross inconsistencies. The seller's equipment includes power steering, power windows, air conditioning, ABS, cruise control and a contemporary cassette radio.

Mileage:

Due to the non-functioning speedometer, the seller states that the stated mileage of 122,590 is the mileage according to the previous owner and the total mileage is not traceable. A partially kept checkbook is available and all other instruments except for the speedometer in the interior of the Mercedes-Benz should work, according to the seller.

Engine:

From a displacement of 3.8 liters, the V8 engine of this 380 SL generates 204 hp - the power is transmitted to the rear wheels of the car by means of a 4-speed automatic. A final service was carried out in October 2013. According to the previous owner, the entire cylinder head and the steering gear were overhauled.

Subsoil:

Due to various rusty spots and other underbody damage, the seller declares the Mercedes-Benz as a hobbyist's vehicle. But if you want to buy a beautiful Mercedes-Benz SL of the 1980s in a harmonious color combination and good equipment and prepare it nicely, this 380 SL offered here offers a good basis for building.
