For Sale: 1988 Mercedes-Benz 560SL in Secretary, Maryland This car was bought in Germany by a officer in service, and then he had it shipped to united states. the german 1988 mercedes has single head light, as the american model 1988 required two headlight. This makes this car rare. The motor has been upgraded to the tune of 5000.00 dollars, and runs great and doesnot use any oil or smoke. The vehicle also has a new battery, radiator, leather seats, console, sun visors etc. these upgrades cost additional 5000.00 dollars. The body has never been in a accident and is rust free, with the exception of a few bubbles. The paint is original. As one can see l have kept this vehicle up during the 18 years i have owned it. I am almost 80 years old and have lost interest in this beautiful car. I want someone to buy it and maintain and enjoy it as i used to.
