Description

ONLY 2 OWNERS, AZ & FL CAR, VERY WELL MAINTAINED, RECORDS, BOTH TOPS, CLEAN 560!

It's hard to believe but true. This classic 1988 Mercedes 560SL is in the perfect color combination, comes with both tops, has a supple A/C interior, received all the proper maintenance, and yet you can take it home for less than $15K.

The 560SL is highly desirable because it's the full wish list in one car. These are elegant, powerful, comfortable, timeless, and nimble classics. The now legendary R107 model cars are iconic because they represent an era when very few companies could build a convertible without worrying about safety regulations. Mercedes built their cars so robustly that the R107 exceeded these standards, and they did it elegantly without an unsightly roll bar. It was the go-to driver for celebrities, dignitaries, and the wealthy because the sleek lines hid a full size interior and usable trunk that was perfect for any road trip. The Crimson Red paint with new tan top is still in vogue today, and when you want a coupe-like profile, the optional hardtop goes on with true German precision. It all means that no matter how you decided to arrive (convertible, soft top, or coupe) pulling up in this Mercedes is an elegant announcement of your timeless sense of style.

There's more evidence inside that the previous two owners gave this car a pampered life. The leather seats are supple, the wood on the center console is glossy, and carpets are nice and plush – all the right elements to continue pride in ownership. The 560SL was one of the most expensive cars Mercedes offered during its reign, and so the features list is quite long. This includes desirable conveniences such as power windows, power locks, an alarm system, power steering, front & rear defrost, and cruise control. The correct Becker Grand Prix AM/FM/cassette stereo was even recently rebuilt. It would have been easier to simply put an aftermarket stereo in this car, but repairing the iconic Becker unit is another great example of the level of care that has gone into this Benz. Because this was built 1988, there are also more modern features than most R107s, such as a third brake light and a driver's air bag. But your favorite part will be the air conditioning. It has received the right maintenance so that you can hop in today and this luxury convertible will keep you comfortable even when the top is down.

The 560SL came with a big 5.6-liter V8 motor that had the power to rival contemporary Rolls-Royces. While we have a long maintenance history, all you have to do is look at the engine bay to understand the level of care in the engine bay. With the tidy presentation, fresh components, and even factory decals, this is exactly how you want your bulletproof Benz to be. On the road, an R107 has a fully-independent chassis that is the perfect balance of 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 four-wheel disc brakes that include ABS.

The sale comes complete with the full owner's manual packet and a large maintenance file. This is the perfect way to purchase an affordable vintage machine that knows how to turn heads today. Don't miss out, call today!
