1984 380 SL, Midnight Blue with Both Tops! V8 Automatic

This 1984 Mercedes Benz 380 SL Roadster — and the SL-class, in general — are timeless classics. Made between 1971 to 1989, the SL series is the second-longest model type produced by the German automaker, making it one of the most desirable roadsters of the day. It is also one reason for its resurgence today as Generation X remembers its formative years seeing J.R. Ewing behind the wheel of one on Dallas and Sharon Stone driving one in Casino. It was a status symbol to show you "made it," but the 380 was so much more — it was personal luxury.

The 380 SL model, built between 1981 to 1985, was ahead of its time in the American market with Bosch fuel injection onboard. Although it lacked the fire-breathing horsepower of other models, the roadster carried a level of sophistication that made us look the other way. The 380 SL was endeared by all, which is why it is one of the most desired drop-tops on the market today.

This particular roadster, built in Germany with a 3.8-liter V8 and a four-speed automatic, has been lovingly driven 221,000 miles. However, according to the owner, the engine was refreshed less than 50,000 miles ago and runs and drives beautifully. Equipped with power steering, the Merc steers as it should. We have checked all the coolant systems fluids and hoses and found them to be in good working condition.

Though the Merc has a straight body, the 36-year-old color was fading, so we updated it with a beautiful deep Metallic Blue 3M wrap, which compliments the chrome and Palamino interior. The car is solid; both the hood and trunk open and close with ease. Each door closes confidently, and all the windows operate like new. With a bright shine, the chrome Euromeister wheels are new, with Michelin tires mounted from the previous set.

This 380 is supplied with both a soft-top and hard-top in good working condition. The hard-top is wrapped to match the body and fits with ease. The brightwork and chrome on the bumpers shine better than most cars of its age. The interior is in surprisingly good condition for its age with minimal signs of wear. Both seats are in good overall condition showing no wear or rips. The gauges work as they should with clear dials.

Even today, this SL stands out in the crowd. With both tops and new Chrome wheels, it is sure to be enjoyed. This car has been loved — it drives better than you would expect given the miles and everything is in great working order. Although it's not a new Mercedes, you can still drive it in comfort and be the envy of the neighborhood.
