RUNS WELL, ORIGINAL WINDOW STICKER, BOTH TOPS, SOME MAINTENANCE RECORDS, NICE!
This 1986 Mercedes 560SL comes with a great factory color combo, both tops, loaded A/C interior, and rare back seat. Who knew this much distinction and class could be available for such an affordable price?
The factory-correct Nautical Blue Metallic paint lives up to its name, because this Mercedes convertible looks ready to hit the yacht club. You see this style in the well-creased sheetmetal that creates long flowing lines, and the pinstriping that gives a subtle hint at the interior color. And the reason why this is still so crisp and clean today is because Mercedes builds their cars with lasting quality. And since it cost around $110K when new (in today's dollars), it was the kind of investment that commanded respect from day one.
The Palomino leather interior is a great coordinating color with the deep blue exterior. But we bet it's not how it looks on the seats, but instead, how many seats there are that first grabs your attention. It's rare to find an SL from this generation with rear seats and seatbelts because it was an option Mercedes never officially offered to the USA. The 560SL was one of the most expensive cars Mercedes offered during its reign, and the features list is quite long. This includes desirable conveniences such as power windows, power locks, power steering, cruise control, an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo, and cold air conditioning so you can enjoy top-down motoring long into the summer season. Because this was built 1986, there are also more modern features than most R107s, such as a third brake light, anti-lock brakes, and a driver's air bag. It comes with both the color-matching removable hardtop and a well-coordinated blue folding soft top. If you don't know how to properly stow these roofs, don't worry, because this SL also comes with the owner's manual and plenty of other original factory literature to help you.
The 560SL came with a big 5.6-liter V8 motor making around 230 hp and 285 lb-ft of torque – rivaling the contemporary Rolls-Royces of the day. You can tell by the presentation of the engine bay and cleanliness of the undercarriage that this has always been a cherished luxury machine. And even the hood pad has been replaced to make sure you'll proudly show off this powerplant. But more than just look good, this was a total package that was made for the grand tour. The R107 strikes the perfect balance between nimble machine and all-day cruiser. On the road, the fully-independent chassis offers both elastic comfort and tight-handling. The four-speed automatic transmission also strikes a balance between performance and overdrive comfort cruising. The total package is finished off with a disc brake behind each one of those iconic factory alloys.
Beyond the full owner's manual packet, you also receive the original window sticker and maintenance records – everything you need to continue this car's exceptional legacy. So when you can stand out in all the best ways for such a nice price, you know this is a deal that will be leaving us soon. Call today!!!
