Just talked with my neighbor a few doors down the street from me. He wants to sell his 1981 380SL. He'd like to get somewhere around $8000 for it. I know the car a little, but not thoroughly at all. However, if after you talk with him you'd like me to take a look at anything in particular, I'd be happy to do that. Contact Bill at 910-575-1484 or email@example.com
. I'm not sure how computer active he is. Not that I have anything to gain financially, but feel free to tell Bill that I sent you his way.
Here's what I know about the car:
Bill has owned it for maybe two years and is at least the third owner. He has the original window sticker as well as a good number of receipts. He has one receipt for over $6000 of engine work which included a conversion to a double timing chain. Since Bill has had the car, he has had some brake work done, put in new plugs, put in a new alternator and is currently having the blower motor repaired. The car is blue outside with a palomino (I think) interior. Car has the hardtop and Bill says the soft top is in good shape. The car starts fine and is basically a driver in its current condition. The car is in Ocean Isle Beach, NC which is midway between Myrtle Beach and Wilmington.
