The... Mercedes-Benz 560SL Is the Car I Always Wanted �€" Christopher Smith, Popular Mechanics, August 2018 Mercedes automobiles, especially those from before 1990, are known to inspire remarkable loyalty. This is Chris Smith's first-person story: My mother always wanted a Mercedes convertible. Back in the '80s, we moved from Long Island to North Carolina, and she finally went to a dealer. I will never forget that summer day she pulled into our driveway. The car was a work of art. Mercedes started building this generation SL in the early '70s, and 1989 was its last year, so the car looks older than it is. But it doesn't drive like an old car. With a 5.6-liter V-8, it has a lot of power for a two-seater. And when you hit the gas, the shifts are barely noticeable. It still feels like a luxury car. I know the prices for these are going up now. But I don't ever want to sell it. Chris Smith's 560 SL was black over gray. (Hold that thought.) Offered here is a 1988 Mercedes-Benz 560SL in black (0400) over gray 278) under a black soft top. Sold new at Rallye Motors in Roslyn, New York, this is an upstate New York car with a Carfax-verified record of regular, dealer-performed maintenance over its life. The SL's odometer reads 83,041, or just over 2,500 miles per-year on average since new. Its outstanding condition speaks to the value of meticulous owner care.
