MERCEDES 380 SL R107 1981 83,000 mls restoration project for sale
For auction is my 1981 Mercedes 380SL in Manganese Bronze. (Also called cappuccino by some) I am a Mercedes enthusiast and a long term MBOC member and have owned the car since 2000.
When we bought the car we replaced all the brake hoses. coolant hoses. oil cooler. re-cored the radiator. distributor cap. plugs and leads. The Mexican hat alloys were stripped and powder coated and there is a pile of receipts for other replacement parts.
The only welding done to date is in the spare wheel well.
Otherwise it is an unmolested and complete car.
The mileage is 83552 and I have all the MOT certificates from 1985 to 2007 when the car was SORN.
I will try to list all the bits which will require attention
Front wings corroded near headlights and to rear of wheel arch
Fluting by nearside rear wheel arch corroded
Front of sills and jacking points corroded
Section under battery tray corroded into nearside front wheel arch
Offside of boot near bumper mounting corroded. (not visible above the bumper)
Lower front panel corroded
The paintwork overall is tired and faded
Cloth on driver's seat squab is worn through
Brake pipes corroded
Fuel level sender not working
Some surface corrosion on scuttle panel at the bottom of the windscreen
4 inch knife slash on side of soft top and soft top windows cloudy
These are some of the good bits
The cabin is dry and the floors are sound although the sound deadening mats are not present
The plenum chambers are solid as is the central bulkhead area below the heater blower
The petrol tank chamber has no corrosion and neither does the tank (inspected when the tank was removed for cleaning and a new Bosch fuel pump was fitted in the last 18 months)
The car starts on first turn of the key and idles correctly
Oil pressure is good
Gearbox is smooth through all gears The hardtop is not showing any corrosion
The chrome-work is in good condition
This is a reluctant sale and I have been honest about the condition of this car but I am also aware of the potential it has to offer and this is reflected in the start price.
Please contact me to arrange a viewing during the auction. the car is in Leicestershire. I will accept cash on collection.
