1989 Mercedes-Benz 560 SL
The 1989 Mercedes-Benz was the last—and, most commentators believe, the best—year for the famed R107 chassis. This model is a favorite among Mercedes aficionados, and in the words of 560SLMercedes.com:
"In the 560SL, Mercedes got it all just right, offering essentially bullet-proof reliability, satisfying power, and aggressive good looks. The 560SL combined all that Mercedes learned about the V-8 R107 chassis cars into a cultural icon that quietly and confidently told the world its occupants had "arrived."
This garage-kept SL is equipped as follows:
• Artic White with Gray interior
• Both tops
• 56,704 odometer miles
• Rear jump seats
• Just passed Virginia Safety Inspection
They don’t get any Nicer!
• Paint and Chrome
The first thing noticeable about this 560 SL is the condition of its paint: garage-kept. The Artic White that looks almost as new as it did back in 1989 when it came off the showroom floor.
The chrome looks fresh as well with some light surface scratches.
This car has a gray MB-Tex interior that is in very good condition, as are the door panels and the carpeting.
The padded dash is in good condition and free of cracks. All of the engine/systems monitoring gauges (temperature, fuel, econ-o-meter and oil pressure) work properly. Similarly, the speedometer and tachometer work, as does all of the safety equipment (lights, horn, wipers, etc.).
The car’s 5.6 liter Bosch fuel-injected engine generates 227 hp, the most of the entire line of these SL series cars. The engine starts right up and runs like it should, with plenty of kick-down power for passing and highway-entry maneuvers.
The transmission is the Mercedes 4-speed automatic and it shifts smoothly as one would expect on a luxury sports car.
The virtually new Michelin 205/65R15 tires, are mounted on 4 M-B wheels, and there is a spare that appears to never have been used, properly secured in the trunk. The car has 4-wheel disc brakes and they operate as they should with only a slight pulling to the left.
• Luxury Comfort Features
The car also has the factory removable hardtop. The convertible top operates properly (and easily) and is excellent condition other than a slight (1/2 inch) tear on the passenger side(see picture).
This 560SL is optioned with the rear jump seats (and seat belts) which expands the seating in this car to 4—although the rear seat occupants will be happy only if they are small.
The Becker Grand Prix AM/FM/Cassette stereo works fine although the power antenna probably needs lubing.
The air conditioning works very well, blowing cold air as it should and regulated by the Mercedes climate control system. With the outside temperature visible on the dash thermometer, you will be glad the A/C works so well!
An Excellent Example of one of Mercedes’ Most Popular Sports Cars
Over the 19-year production cycle of the R107 chassis for the SL, Mercedes constantly upgraded and improved the vehicle, culminating in the 1989 560SL. The car that we are selling is an extremely nice example: the best of the best. There is nothing more comfortable or enjoyable than cruising in a Mercedes SL, whether with the top down or the hardtop in place. This is a great car at a great price.
