Lot 203: 1982 Mercedes-Benz 380SL
The SL's of this era (the 107 chassis) really established themselves as an icon of quality and success in on the Continent as well as the Americas. Unlike the previous SL range, these cars were rugged and durable and could accumulate high mileage and still remain reliable with just the most basic of care The first of the generation was the 350SL, a car that is now beginning to occupy a strong place in the hearts of Mercedes-Benz collectors. This example was purchased from new by a business man from Sunderland. It cost over £20,000 and represented a retirement present to himself. It was, and always has been, meticulously maintained regardless of cost with only dry miles accumulated. With the car are bills and service invoices totalling more than £12,000, mostly spent at Mercedes specialist, Mill Garage, Tyne and Wear. With just 2 owners from new and only 49,000 miles recorded, this Champagne with Tan interior example is, quite simply, one of the finest examples to be presented in recent years. More recently, a new exhaust has been fitted as well as a Mercedes-Benz approved alarm, Blaupunkt radio and Tracker system. Classic.
