Streetside Classics probably sells more R107 Mercedes-Benz SLs than anyone else, and weve developed a pretty good eye for these cars. This 1984 380SL is a great balance of performance, style, price, and preservation, and for open-air motoring, the SL is still pretty tough to / br / In the mid-80s, wild colors were in fashion, but ever-conservative Mercedes-Benz always got it right. In this cars case, its beautiful silver-blue bodywork with dark blue hides inside, a combination that has looked great for decades, if not centuries. The light blue respray gives the SL a big car look despite its rather diminutive size, and in a Mercedes, elegance is never an option but mandatory. The light color also emphasizes how straight and clean this one is, thanks to a lifetime in a warm climate and only 94,539 miles showing on the odometer (thats not many at all on a 30-year-old Mercedes-Benz). A dark blue pinstripe offers a bit of contrast and the light colors like this do a much better job of disguising the heavy federally-mandated bumpers, so it looks sleek and trim compared to many of its siblings. Theres plenty of shine, but a dedicated hobbyist could really take it up a notch with a professional buff so that the car can live up to the legacy of the three-pointed star on its nose. Someone added a 560SL emblem to the tail, as well as a center stop lamp, but thats an innocent upgrade that most folks wont / br / Most R107 SLs received MB-Tex vinyl, but this lovely roadster wears genuine leather, which makes a big difference in the way it feels. The design is familiar, of course, but thats part of the SLs appeal, and with everything so sensibly arranged and logical, is there really any other way to do it? The upholsterys condition is very good all around, particularly for an open car, and aside from a split in the dash pad, it looks great. Big, easy-to-read gauges were a Mercedes-Benz hallmark for decades and the giant steering wheel makes this car feel substantial when youre at the helm. Features like automatic climate control, power windows, and cruise control mean its one of the most user-friendly 2-seaters you can own and the lovely carpeted package shelf behind the seats offers good storage space when youre in a hurry. A convertible top stows neatly under the hard boot in back and looks almost new and like all SLs, it includes a removable / br / In 1980, the SL switched to a 3.8 liter V8, which still delivers the kind of effortless performance for which these cars are famous. Theyre also quite reliable and easy to maintain, so dont be afraid of owning this one. It starts easily with a familiar V8 thrum from the exhaust and the bubbly idle and smooth torque make it feel beautifully polished from behind the wheel. The engine bay has been maintained over the years and remains clean, and its full of correct parts, so no worries about deferred maintenance here. The 3-speed automatic transmission has a knack for always being in the right gear, and as always, its impeccably smooth. The all-independent suspension is supple yet athletic, and while this is no sports car, it doesnt mind hustling a bit on your favorite roads. 4-wheel discs live behind those familiar Mercedes-Benz alloy wheels and carry right-sized 205/65/15 blackwall / br / This is a clean, tidy SL in great colors that we can heartily recommend for warm weather fun. Just dont tell your friends and neighbors how affordable it really is! Call now!br/br/
