Post FS 1981 380 SLC - Valencia, CA

Hi there,

My Mother in law decided to part with her 380 SLC and bought a new car.

My husband and I have had it for a couple of years, thinking we would do a full restoration after finding out only 1500 were produced - however, I went out and bought another Ford!! (We own a Ford performance shop so I thought it would be a wiser choice than trying to break into the Mercedes market! :-) )

So, we've drained all the gas, flushed the tank, installed a brand new Bosch fuel pump. New battery, new brakes, and shocks. Changed the oil and spark plugs and gave the car a good once over. It drives great!!

This car has also had the double timing chain upgrade done to it - My husband is an ASE Master Technician who has maintained the car for his mother for years - he said that was important to mention because it is something these cars really need and it's an expensive job.

We would like to see the car go to a good new home.

Please email me if you are interested - the interior is about a 7/10 - some of the seam stitching has come apart on the drivers seat and the leather is a bit worn - I found a place online that has replacement seat covers, but I never got around to ordering one. The exterior is in great condition 9/10 - but because we've parked it outside the past several months, it could use a good detail. Mom in law always had it in the garage. The only thing I can find wrong with the car is that the foil covering in the rear quarter windows is lifting off of the factory vent things (I don't know what these are called).

Price is $5,000.00

Please call me at 661-424-0878 if you are interested. We are located in Valencia, California.
