1981 380 SL Calif. Rdstr. For Restore

This car has seen 300,000 miles & then the engine went.
Seller bought another engine w/150M from a recycler, that needs a valve job.

The Good Parts are that it is an Original California Blue Plate Car, w/original paint & no accidents.
Leather seats look like they have been recovered.

All else is unknown.

Price $1999.

There is a VIN issue with the 1981 cars. The Door, Window & Front Cross Member numbers all match however, DMV took the 107 out of the sequence & added a later sequence.

I am working on resolving this problem.

Car comes with a 1.5" stack of paperwork on the service of the car.

Car is in the N S.F. bay area
