THE 1984 MERCEDES-BENZ 380SL

In 1980, Mercedes-Benz revamped its SL lineup of sporting luxury convertibles with the introduction of the 380SL. The 380 was a further development of the R107 chassis, which was first used in 1972 by the 350SL, and then later by the 450SL. Like its forebears the 380SL was a heady mix of V-8 power, refined luxury, and sporty underpinnings, and it was as a very popular model during its run in the U.S.

The 380SL, so-named for its 3.8-liter V-8, had a smaller engine than the 450SL and was consequently 120 pounds lighter. The new engine was designed with emissions controls in mind while the 450SL’s was not, which meant that the two engines were relatively equal in terms of power despite the difference in their displacements. Performance was similar for the two cars, as was fuel economy.

Outside of the engine, the 380SL also received a new four-speed automatic transmission, which further enhanced distance driving. Suspension, meanwhile, continued to be the same fully independent setup as in the earlier cars, and four-wheel disc braking remained standard.

The 380SL ended production in 1985 and is an excellent choice as a collectible 1980s convertible.

Vehicle Condition:

THIS 1984 MERCEDES-BENZ 380SL IS IN EXCELLENT MECHANICAL AND AMAZING COSMETIC CONDITION!IT TRULY IS A AMAZING SURVIVOR!

This 1984 Mercedes is a 35 year old “survivor”, but as fabulous as it is some very minor things are to be expected! That said, this 380SL was just fully inspected by a Mercedes mechanic and is pretty much as good as it gets. Nearly everything appears to be in excellent original condition. There are only two minor issues that I am aware of. The Cruise Control does not work and the radio does not bring in the AM band. That’s it!!!

THESE ARE BOTH VERY MINOR. THIS IS AN EXCEPTIONALLY WELL MAINTAINED AND CARED FOR MERCEDES!

BOTTOM LINE…THIS 380SL IS IN ABSOLUTELY AMAZING GORGEOUS SURVIVOR CONDITION, AND WORTHY OF BEING IN THE FINEST COLLECTION!!!
