1981 MERCEDES SL380 – 131,000 MILES – £26,950

From its launch in 1971 the SL soon became the standard all other Grand convertible touring cars aspired to.

By the end of production there had been very few major changes just mild developments and enhancements.

This lovely example was supplied and lived in Cornwall for years pampered from day one with regular servicing.

She received a thorough body restoration around 15 years ago by a Mercedes specialist and the high standard of work still presents very well today.

Continual maintenance has resulted in a great driving car and recent expenditure last year included a new steering box and suspension.

All the work is documented in the history file which includes old mots and many invoices dating back over the years.

On the road she is very well sorted with very strong V8 engine and smooth gearbox making progress effortless and any long trip can be completed very easily in these cars compared to many 1980s competitors.

Supplied fully inspected, serviced with 12 months warranty.
