Overview of this Mercedes-Benzdes

1985 Mercedes-Benz 380SL (R107)

112,000 miles

Light Ivory (623) with Palomino Leather (274) and Dark Brown Fabric Soft Top (8023)

A superb and hard to find ‘late model early car’ from 1985. The timeless combination of Ivory coachwork with Palomino Leather gives this car an incredibly luxurious look.

The lazy-but-potent 3.8 litre V8 engine coupled with Ivory coachwork and early style interior gives this car the feel of an early 1970s American muscle car, a distinguished and different feel to the later R107s.

Finding an early V8 car in this sort of condition is getting extremely hard.

Subject to a very high quality restoration some years ago, this car wants for nothing. We have recently given this car a service including a new timing belt.

This car wears the factory correct ‘Mexican Hat’ alloy wheels, a choice that suits these early cars perfectly.

For touring purposes, there is also the presence of Rear Seats and Air Conditioning, both of which were expensive non-standard options back in 1985. The premium Becker stereo and Cruise Control would also increase the original purchase price, making this a superbly well equipped car for it’s day.

The dateless plate XUG27 has now been removed from the car and is saved on retention. B575VTR is currently with the car, however the former keeper is happy to discuss the dateless plate staying with the vehicle.

A delightful opportunity to acquire an SL that is absolutely ‘of it’s era’.

Additional Notes:

This lovely early car has been absolutely cherished by the former keepers, who purchased it in 2009.

Bought as a second car for trips and tours, this Ivory SL has toured Ireland numerous times, visited Jersey, Northern France and Scotland – as can be evidenced by the photographs on our Journal article (click here)

As part of the key role of ‘holiday transport’, this SL has always been maintained to the highest standard. Any suspect noises, vibrations, hums or whirrs that have arisen during the last 10 years have been resolved correctly, with the owner always ensuring the car was ready to go at a moments notice.

The next owner of this car will benefit from the time and dedication shown over the last 10 years.

Prospective buyers should not be deterred by the mileage on this car – it really is a wonderful example.

The engine fires at the first turn of the key, the car feels responsive and ready. This SL is longing for a new owner to take the wheel and aim for the horizon, a new owner with which to share many more miles of happy touring.

Condition:

This Mercedes-Benz has been hand-picked by SLSHOP’s sales team due to its high calibre status. Every inch of this vehicle’s exterior, interior and mechanicals have been inspected by SLSHOP’s workshops to ensure the vehicle meets our world leading standards. While every effort has been made to offer pristine vehicles, there will be some age-related marks, unless otherwise stated.

History:

We advise interested parties to join us for a coffee to peruse the documentation accompanying this vehicle. There are servicing records and invoices, MOT and tax records dating back many years and as such must be viewed in person.
