The Newer Upgrades are as follows: The body has no rust & the car was given a a ULTRA High Quality paint job to freshen it up approx. 7 mos. ago to keep it looking great. A new Alpine AM/FM/CD radio was installed awhile ago to replace the original radio. I have the original Becker radio.The car starts right away, runs and drives very well. Brakes stop the car straight and the transmission shifts smoothly. This is a very reliable car. Let me first start out by saying that I wouldn't hesitate to drive this car tomorrow from Seattle to Maine and then back. This car was checked out from top to bottom mechanically and needs absolutely nothing. It doesn't leak anywhere, no noises coming from anywhere, and it's very smooth on the highway. All of the maintenance on the car is totally up to date.
AC system and "brain" work as they should, all windows, electrics, radio, power antenna and even the clock etc. work correctly. All glass, trim etc. looks great. Hardtop and headliner are perfect.
* If you're looking for a very well-maintained, ultra-low mileage Mercedes 560 SL that has always been babied, this is it. I'd be Very hard-pressed to find another one in nicer condition. Its been in a climate controlled facility for most of its life. If you fancy yourself a fan of a Classic Mercedes-Benz cars from when they truly led the world in quality, engineering and design, then this car is a Must-See.
