1985 380SL Black w/ Tan Interior - 185k Miles

I inherited this from my grandparents not too long ago and would rather get rid of it before I have to start dumping a bunch of money into it. It's not exactly my kind of ride.

It's been in the family since '86. This thing has been babied it's whole life. All documentation of maintenance is on hand and organized since the day it was purchased. Full timing chain/guide rail job was done within the last 50k.

Cosmetic negatives include paint chip on passenger side door, paint chip on trunk hood, cracked dash pad (covered right now), and missing Mercedes emblem on one of the wheels. That's literally the only problems cosmetically.

Mechanical negatives include oil leak, ABS light problem which is probably just the OVP relay, high idle which I've personally found to be the idle speed controller (it's out right now and ready for a new one), and the a/c compressor clutch is shot. This sounds like a lot, but if you know these cars you'll know this is nothing.

For more info call Patrick at 805.443.7777 or email to ptmccandless@gmail.com

It's extremely dusty as it's been sitting in the garage for quite some time so until I wash it, I can take some ugly pictures but it won't do it much justice.

I'm not in a complete rush to sell, but it would definitely be nice to free up my garage space so I'll entertain any offers at this point.
