1982 Mercedes-Benz 500-Series 380 SEC Description

We are selling this 1982 Mercedes-Benz 380 SEC 2 Door Coupe. The 380 SEC is a very rare model, out of the SEC models. There was only 11,267 of these produced in total from 1981 to 1985. There was only aound 1700 of these imported, this is car #780.

This car was originally purchased in Florida. It was used as the weekend fun car for the several years and was driven in the spring, summer, and fall. This beautiful car was lovingly taken care of. It has been regularly serviced and receives synthetic oil. The car runs, drives, and stops well. The brakes were recently done a couple months back. The 3.8 L V8 has ample power for a car of this age and it surprisingly gets pretty good gas mileage. The car is solid it feels like you’re in a well built tank that handles nimble. Everything works on this car except the odometer that stopped working just below 129,000 miles around 200 miles ago and passenger window. We have included a replacement passenger window track and regulator motor with this car.

Overall this car is in fair to good shape. The car’s interior look very close to new, the exterior is starting to show its age (fading paint on the roof stone chips on the hood, cracking paint on the back of the trunk lid & drivers side rear, and a little bit of surface rust in the common areas for these W126 models under the drivers light/ finder edge, passenger door handle). We are constantly stopped and asked about the car. This car has never been in an accident. If the car paint was resurfaced it would look a brand new modernized 35 year old grand tourer. The car comes with a premium set of gold BBS wheels that everyone seems to love (They are a conversation starter). All the body trim is in place. The previous owner put on a 560 SEC barge on the rear, although the 560 didn’t get produced until 85’. The front grille and drivers headlight surround was hit by rock that was kicked up on the highway and has a cracked them both. Even though these cars have always been rare, finding parts for them isn’t too hard to find nor expensive.

The interior of the car is gorgeous. None of the soft leather seats show any wear at all. The wood is in great condition. The carpet and mats are in good condition, but would look nicer with a good shampooing. The moon roof is huge and it works as intended. It has features and luxurious amenities that many modern vehicles do not have

All in all these are all the in’s and out’s of this gorgeous flagship luxury coupe. We are letting this car find it’s market value and offering it with no reserve.
