1978 Mercedes-Benz 380SL

£ 7,000 - 10,000
US$ 9,700 - 14,000
The Bramah Collection
1978 Mercedes-Benz 380SL
Registration no. ERC386T
Chassis no. 10704322014157
*75,800 indicated miles
*Bodywork requires some attention
*Blue interior

Offering a worthwhile project for this running-and-driving SL comes with its hardtop, which like the wheelarches, shows some signs of rust. The trim and brightwork is intact and the front spoiler is undamaged. The interior requires some attention, the driver's seat requiring re-trimming, while the door cards and dashboard are in reasonable order. A worthwhile, rewarding project.
