For Sale: 1987 Mercedes-Benz 560SL in Lavergne, Tennessee

Vehicle Description

A terrific color combo, exceptionally low mileage, exceptionally maintained, and all the best features (including some rare ones) make this 1987 Mercedes-Benz 560 SL the ideal classic for those who want upper-class distinction.

The factory-correct Silver Pearl looks terrific on this car. Smooth and glossy, this gives the proper first impression that a premium vehicle commands. In fact, the whole Mercedes has the look of a carefully maintained classic. That's what you get on an example that has averaged less than 950 miles annually. Straight panels, shining bumpers, and the iconic alloys continue this time capsule-like presentation. The black folding roof looks good against the silver, and it coordinates with the black rubber trim that encircles the car. But when you want true distinction, the color-matched hardtop has a great coupe-like profile (and it's in terrific condition inside and out.)

While having both tops is absolutely desirable, the way that you're going to enjoy this SL the most is with no roof at all. And the gray leather interior is a nice harmonizing color against the silver exterior to deliver a very premium European look inside and out. The low mileage means this all looks good, and it also comes with all the factory features you want. This includes power windows, the Becker Grand Prix AM/FM/cassette stereo, and cold-blowing air conditioning. This is a later-model 560 SL, and so it even comes with modern feature right from the factory like a third brake light and a driver airbag. In fact, the only piece you'll recognize that isn't stock are the rear seats. The American SLs never were allowed to have them, and so this well-done addition is instantly recognized by Mercedes people. It makes for a great conversation starter.

Under the hood is more of that factory-correct presentation that makes this car great. The 5.6-liter V8 motor is believed to be original to the car, and looks stock right down to the decals. That means you have a strong fuel-injected powerhouse that has been maintained to uphold the stout reputation of Mercedes-Benz. This is a true grand touring machine, and so the sweet V8 is mated to a smooth four-speed automatic transmission with overdrive. Plus, with power steering and a well-balanced fully-independent suspension, this is the classic you'll love to drive.

This comes with the right extras, including the owner's manual, first aid kit, and tool kit. The 560 SL is the Mercedes-Benz that has exemplified the upper echelon of classics, and this example upholds that image to the fullest. Call today!!!
