FS: 1981 Mercedes Benz 380SL

Asking price: $2,500.00

1981 Mercedes Benz 380 SL
170,072 original miles on the odometer

*3.8L V8
*Immaculate interior
*New tires, new fluids, new ignition coils (cap/rotor)
*Hard/Soft top in great condition.
*Original paint.
*Need to sell ASAP.

Body damage:
Repair has been made on the left rear fender (pictured) this has been filled and sanded and prepped for paint.

Paint is original, hard and soft top, the dash and the rest of the interior are in great condition!
The chrome trims have been taken off the car since it was supposed to be prepped for a new paint job.

Master Cylinder:
This might need replacement and can be bought online for an average of $60.

New parts:
Tires, cap and rotor.

This is all I can think of other than it will be needed to get towed since it is not registered (DMV non operational but the car runs!).



Reverse then drive

Drive then park

I will provide the VIN when you contact me to verify clean title.
It's available for viewing, test drives based on my schedule, check out the car in Gardena, CA.

Please text or email.

Thank you,

I agree with rowdie, it is a rotw 380, has the double row timing chain, the selector for the center vent makes it............. the battery should be under the hood. may have the crappy acc ll but for that price, a good deal IMO,. if it was here in Michigan I would have another storage problem.............

The climate control is manual, not the crappy ACCII. The headlight adjuster switch, door panels, lack of Federal Certification plate on the drivers door jamb, and rear seat make me certain it is a ROTW model despite the North American bumpers and headlights. The VIN will begin WDB10704512 followed by the sequential production number of 6 digits.
