Beautiful Mercedes convertible SL380 from 1985.
Well-maintained condition, technically as well as cosmetically.
From Canada, British Columbia. This explains the American bumpers and lighting, yet fitted with a km odometer.
The car drives very well, the engine runs well and starts immediately without any exhaust smoke. The car steers and brakes perfectly, it floats straight accross the road. With cruise control and the sought after children’s seat, this is the ultimate leisure car. The car has been well kept by the previous, the relatively high mileage is only visible from some traces of wear of the interior but is virtually negligible with regards to the driving pleasure.
Sheet metal very sleek, solid bottom, perfect chrome wheels with 4 Michelin tyres that have very good tread. In recent years several parts have been renewed preventively including the muffler, multi-belts, spark plug cables. The vacuum system of the engine has been checked upon arrival in the Netherlands. The American sealed beams replaced for European approved H4 headlights with side light.
Chic leather interior with some traces of wear, but neat. Dashboard has small tears at the windshield. Floor mats original and in fine condition.
The options work, excluding central locking and air conditioning. The latter has been disconnected, but the system still has pressure.
Glass and windshield intact, no chips.
Nice brown soft-top with a 15x15cm repair patch above the passenger. Visible but not bothersome.
For any interested Dutch customers: the car has just been inspected by the RDW (Dutch vehicle authority), it has a Dutch registration and a periodic inspection which is valid for 2 years.
It is advisable to view the vehicle in Zoeterwoude (South Holland, The Netherlands) before making an offer. A test drive is also possible.
