Looking to find a serious buyer for my 380 SEC.
I have several SEC's, but my favorite 380 with 50k original miles has been sitting in my garage for too long and I think it's time to find it a new home for someone who really wants it and is serious about getting a pretty rare, all original, very low miles 1983 380 SEC. The car is an antique at this point, but with the chrome, the glass and even the paint being all original and in great shape it's really a time machine, not something that someone beat on or even hit the road much in 26 years. I am in the process of finally getting a title for this car because I never needed one and it was previously registered in a no-title state where it sat for years in a garage, but always started every month along with the Ferrari Dino on it's right and the SL on it's left. I have been putting dealer plates on it whenever I have felt the need to take it for a drive, once a month, but have finally decided to make some room for the 560 I just finished customizing with the Lorinser package and I stopped being lazy and contacted MB in Germany and finally found the shipping order when it was brought over here from Germany 25 years ago and finally being issued a title so I can sell it in Mass. The car is about as clean as they come with a beautiful brown leather interior without a rip or tear or a crack on the dash. The original gold paint could use a wax and buff, but it has no rust or rot anywhere one the car. Like an aged fine wine the only thing on this car that doesn't belong there is some dust. Just thought I'd put the word out to someone who may be interested as I've had a few who were in the past, but didn't want to part with it. Now I think it's time with the 2 new projects I'm working on that could use the funds to invest in. Needless to say everything works and actually most of the parts that matter look like they did when they were new... door jams, trunk, engine compartment, all chrome, seats, dash, etc. If anyone might be interested feel free to drop me a line. It's not urgent that I sell. Just thought I'd put it out there and search for a new home with someone who knows about the car and can take care of it as it has been for all these years and truly appreciate it.

Reason: It's a European model.
