Future Classic: 1984 Mercedes-Benz 380SL W107


I was watching a classic Doris Day & Rock Hudson movie the other day (Pillow Talk, 1959) and one of the antagonists tries to give Doris Day’s character a 1957 Mercedes SL Roadster (to which she declines the offer as “immodest” or something). Anyway, aside from being stupefied by the glory of a SL Roadster I was also struck by the fact that there was a time (late 60s, early 70s) when you could have picked up an original SL Roadster for what is considered pocket-change today. Which brings me to this next car…which is the natural successor to the SL and a surprising good deal, but it might not always be the case. Find this 1984 Mercedes-Benz 380SL W107 offered for $9,400 buy-it-now or make-offer from Houston, TX.
