Description
 
1989 MERCEDES-BENZ 560SL ROADSTER - 'SMOKE SILVER' w/ FACTORY HARDTOP ~ SOLD-SOLD-SOLD
 THIS IS ONE OF THE LOWEST MILEAGE 89 560 SL's IN THE MARKETPLACE.
THIS FINAL MODEL IS THE MOST DESIRABLE OF THE ALL THE '107' BODIED "SL" MERCEDES-BENZ CONVERTIBLES, FOR IT'S CONSIDERED THE LAST AND THE BEST OF THE BREED.  NOT ONLY BECAUSE, 1989 IS THE VERY LAST OF THIS BODY-STYLE BUT IT CULMINATED A INCREDIBLE 20 YEAR RUN FOR MERCEDES-BENZ. IT WAS A CLASSIC WHEN 'NEW', IT WILL ALWAYS BE A FAVORED KEEPER FOR ALL TIME. QUITE FRANKLY, THE NEXT SERIES OF '129 ' BODIED CARS WERE SEEN AS BULKY AND UGLY AND HAVE YET TO FIND FAVOR WITH MOST CAR ENTHUSIASTS FOR EITHER COLLECTIBILITY, OR INHERENT BEAUTY.
MBZ PRODUCTION STATS INDICATE ONLY 5,351 560SL'S WERE MADE IN 1989. (THIS IS ONLY SURPASSED, FOR LIMITED BUILD, BY THE FIRST YEAR OF PRODUCTION IN WHICH ONLY 3,907 WERE BUILT IN 1986 -FOR THE USA.) JUDGING BY THE VEHICLE I.D.# ON THIS CAR ...IT IS A-VERY LATE- BUILD.
THIS LOW MILE, NEVER SMOKED-IN, ONE-FAMILY-OWNED CAR, IS FINISHED IN THE UNIQUE AND SELDOM SEEN "SMOKE SILVER" (SOMETIMES CALLED "PLATINUM"), WITH TOBACCO BROWN LEATHER AND CHOCOLATE SOFT TOP (WHICH CARRIES THE CORRECT ORIGINAL "CHICKEN TRACK" HEADLINER). THE REMOVABLE HARDTOP IS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION, WITH RARE SADDLE (INSTEAD OF WHITE) HEADLINER, AND IS INCLUDED WITH THIS PURCHASE. BY THIS TIME IN HISTORY, SELLING FOR WELL OVER $65,000 WHEN NEW, THIS MODEL CAME 'LOADED' WITH POWER 4-WHEEL-DISC ABS BRAKES, AIR BAGS, POWER WINDOWS, POWER MIRRORS, TINTED GLASS, FULLY ADJUSTABLE SEATS (EVEN UP/DOWN), ICE COLD AIR CONDITIONING, REAR WINDOW DEFOGGER, FOG LAMPS, LEATHER WRAPPED STEERING WHEEL, 4-SPEED AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION, TRACTION CONTROL, AND RADIAL TIRES. THIS CAR HAS FULL LEATHER, IT'S ORIGINAL BECKER STEREO/CASSETTE, BROWN & RED PINSTRIPE AND BOTH TOPS. SINCE THE IMPROVEMENTS MADE IN THE LAST TWO YEARS OF PRODUCTION MAKE THE LAST SERIES THE MOST VALUABLE...THE "MOST COLLECTIBLE" 560 SL's WILL ALWAYS BE THE 1988-89 ( YOU CAN SPOT THE LATER BUILT AS THEY CARRY THE SMALL ATTRACTIVE THIRD BRAKE LIGHT MOUNTED AT THE EDGE OF THE TRUNK!, AS OPPOSED TO 'THE INCREDIBLE HULK' 3RD BRAKE LIGHT MOUNTED CLOSE TO THE BACK WINDOW ON 86-87'S).
ONCE AGAIN, WE DID A RECENT SURVEY ON THE 3 MOST POPULAR WEBSITES OF 68 1988-1989 ONLY CARS FOR SALE. OF THOSE MBZ 560'SL'S OFFERED WE FOUND THE AVERAGE MILEAGE TO BE 147,667 MILES. DO YOU'RE OWN RESEARCH...THEY ARE SUCH A GREAT CAR , FOLKS TEND TO DRIVE THE PANTS OFF THEM. YOU'LL SOON DISCOVER, MOST ALL HAVE HIGH MILEAGE.

WE HAVE SPECIALIZED IN LOW MILEAGE SL'S FOR 22 YEARS. AND AT MY PLACE, WE ARE CONSTANTLY ON THE LOOKOUT FOR 'REAL' LOW MILEAGE EXAMPLES. I HAVE SOLD 7 OF THESE WITH ULTRA-LOW LOW-MILEAGE, IN THE LAST 3 YEARS, FOR THE ASKING PRICE ! NOW, MANY ARE LEAVING BACK OVERSEAS AS EUROPEANS ALSO RECOGNIZE IT'S : 'BUY-IT-NOW' COLLECTIBILITY, OR YOUY MAY NEVER SEE ANOTHER LO MILE ONE.
OUR SURVEYOR SAYS: WE WOULD FAIRLY CALL THIS CAR A "#1-1.5" IN CONDITION. THE RARE COLOR PAINT IS VERY GOOD,IT HAS EXC. LEATHER ON THE SEATS AND SOFT TOP IS BASICALLY 'NEW'. THE VISORS ARE CUSHY AND THICK (SELDOM SEEN AFTER 25 YEARS). THE A.C. IS UPGRADED TO 134 & COMPRESSOR SERVICED. THE TRUNK IS MINT AND THE MOTOR CAVITY IS CLEAN. THE BRIDGESTONE TIRES ARE ABOVE AVERAGE CONDITION. IT DRIVES LIKE NEW: IT IS A TWO-OWNER CAR WHICH HAS TRAVELED ONLY 1,272 MILES PER YEAR SINCE NEW WHICH TRANSLATES TO 31,800 MILES TOTAL ! IT HAS IT'S ORIGINAL BECKER RADIO, ORIGINAL WHEELS VOID OF ANY 'CURB KISSES', OWNERS MANUAL / TOOLS, ORIGINAL SPARE TIRE 'UNUSED' (STILL COVERED BY THE FATORY COATING), AND IS IN EXEMPLARY CONDITION. THIS MAKES THE PERFECT CAR FOR "YOUR SIGNIFICANT OTHER" OR, TREAT YOURSELF TO THE BEST. THEY HAVE EXCELLENT PERFORMANCE AND ARE KNOWN FOR THE "BULLET PROOF" (LOW REPAIR) NATURE. THIS ONE IS PRICED FOR THE ULTRA-LOW MILEAGE & UNBELIEVABLE CONDITION UNDER CURRENT N.A.D.A. CLASSIC CAR GUIDE VALUE "Jan.Feb $45,350": $40,500 FIRM ~ SOLD-SOLD-SOLD
