Arrow 1983 380SL Roadster with only 40k miles - in great condition - Located in NJ

For sale is a one-of-a-kind 1983 Mercedes Benz 2 door coupe 380SL roadster. The car is in excellent mechanical and cosmetic condition. It has a red exterior on black leather interior. The soft-top is black and is in perfect and brand new condition (never been used). The hardtop currently installed on the car is red.

This car only has 40,000 miles and has been garage-kept its entire life. The car just had a tune-up and service performed (after sitting for 7 years). The following items are all brand new:
- 2 new cam shafts (a known issue with these cars) – one less thing to worry about!
- Timing chain (also a known issue with these cars) – another thing not to worry about!
- New water pump and thermostat
- Spark plugs
- Oxygen sensors
- Air filter
- All drive belts
- Fuel pump
- Oil changed
- And more!

The car is absolutely rust free! It was never driven on salty roads or in snow.
Car has a 3.8L V8 Engine and is rear wheel drive.

Without a doubt, you will see less expensive versions of this car for sale on line, however, you will not find another in great condition like this one and one that won’t give you any headaches – since all of the headaches have been taken care of!

Clean Carfax and title in hand.

Price is $15,990 – reasonable offers will be considered. No trades.

Thanks for looking and enjoy the pictures.
