Description Extremely rare Mercedes Pillarless Coupe 380SLC automatic R107 C107 R 107 C

Jaguar is sold,

also selling very reluctantly from my private collection this rare classic as moving soon and not enough space to park them all, plus need some money for a holiday home and wife wants to open a hair saloon.


Mercedes 380 SLC Coupe

Only produced from 1980-81 the 380 SLC is the only SLC apart from the hugely expensive 500SLC to have an aluminium bonnet fitted, an more modern and more economical all aluminium 3.8 liter V8 engine, and the more modern 4 speed auto gearbox instead of the old 3 speed, this an extremely collectible car, unique opportunity to buy this car at this low prize as top condition examples are going already for £20,000 plus, but unfortunatley needing money to buy an Estate car to carry the children around otherwise would never sell my 3 "Toy" cars. 
The Mercedes is in mechanically good condition, the car drives superb, 162000 mls, which is just a run in for this engine size, I have 2 Mercedes 230 with 2.3 Litres 4 Cylinder engines with almost 200,000 mls and engines are superb, plus i had a BMW 520 2 litre with 280,000 mls with the first engine still in excellent condition If You check wikipedia for mercedes W115 there was even a 240D which did 4.6 million km and is now in the mercedes museum, yes, 4.6 million !!!


The 380SLC has no oil consumption or leaks, and engine is not noisy like on some 350 or 450 V8 models which have been sitting for 10 years or more and built up rust inside the engine.
In the last 12 months the car had all the following work done: 
- new distributor cap 
- new engine oil  - new oil filter 
- new coolant / antifreeze 
- new rear drop link 
- fitted exchange superb front and rear seats 
- alloy wheels balanced  - tracking done
- automatic transmission fluid new
- new sun visors in matching colour
- electric sunroof repaired
MOT is till October, 
only 4 previous owners, 
4 or 5 minor surface rust spots where paint is bubbling a bit as pictured,  some very minor cracks in the paint on top of drivers front wing, and a little rust under the rear window as in pictures, but no water is leaking into the boot.
no time wasters please as perfect examples are worth £15000 - 25000 
I can get the rust below the rear window repaired and other few minor surface rust spots as pictured, the rear bumper replaced and the car 
re - painted if You give me £6500 for the SLC and if You pay me £1000 deposit. You would then have an totally amazing looking Mercedes SLC, ready to go to classic car shows.
Interior is superb, no cracks in dashboard, good door trim and rear quarter trim, good headlining, carpets are nice, seats are superb, only the cover on the rear of the handbrake has some damage.
Drivers side rear bumper corner has a little rust, they also fit from the SL R107, the rest of the Chrome bumpers on the car are good. 

everything on the car works apart from the passenger rear window, even the sunroof and cruise control work perfectly ! car drives fantastic, excellent supension, and no suspension noise, brakes work excellent, gearbox shifts smoothly up and down, no vibration on steering wheel at any speed, and car goes like a rocket when you shift down a gear and put your foot down.
Perfect investment as classic car prizes are constantly going up, especially after the recent F1 success of Mercedes. 
These SLC models also had a quite successful rally career .

I can deliver the car if a deposit is paid for a reasonable prize if You drop me at the nearest train station.
