Description
 
In the 70s and 80s, if you wanted to turn heads at the hot spots in the city you would arrive in a car like this 1988 Mercedes Benz 560SL. Today, this one-owner Benz presents less than 85K original miles and still provides all of the drop-top thrills it did over 25 years ago! Take a lap walking around this car and youll see that the German craftsmanship has withstood the tests of time. The gaps line up evenly and the doors shut with a solid thud. The black paint appears to be original from the factory, and is accented with a subtle silver and red pinstripe. Chrome trim around the bumpers, windshield, and rear view mirrors present well, and the wide grill proudly displays the big tri-star logo that is synonymous with sporty, luxury automobiles like this 560SL. Climb inside the cockpit, shut those solid-closing doors and youre welcomed by comfortable, black vinyl seats that stay firm to this day. The view inside is elegant and driver-friendly. The black dash with the wood grain console is still a pleasant contrast for todays standards. The driver is provided with all necessary instrumentation, including a factory correct ambient temperature gauge mounted in the dash. If the wind gets out of hand when the top is down, a convenient wind deflector is available behind the seats. There is ample trunk space for those weekend getaways, but there is also plenty of storage behind the driver and passenger seats should you need it. The final necessity, would be the first aid kit that resides in a slot behind the passenger. The 560SL was Mercedes strongest offering for the SL line in the 80s, and this 5.6L fuel injected V8 still runs strong! With 227 horsepower and 287 lb/ft of torque on tap, this smooth-running engine has a muscular feel when you hit the go pedal. There isnt anything flashy under the hood, but all the hoses and wiring appear to be fresh. For a car with nearly 85K miles, the undercarriage appears clean. Its not perfect, but you can be sure that the engineering that went into this car will provide you with many more years of smooth driving and many miles of smiles! For the enthusiast that is wanting an affordable way to get into the classic European car market, this iconic Mercedes Benz 560SL is the perfect companion. It still has sharp styling, low mileage, a desirable color combination, and an even more desirable convertible top! Call today!
