With a great color combo, precision sheet metal, and timeless
elegance, this 1986 Mercedes-Benz 560SL continues to offer the
upper-class feeling in an affordable vintage package.
The crisply creased body panels instantly remind you why you love a
precision-engineered German car. And this one was built to be a
distinctive driver. It carries the more aerodynamic factory alloy
wheels that only came on the younger cars of this generation. It
reminds you that these later R107s mean the latest advances while
still being eligible for vintage insurance and/or registration
discounts. It's a highly original example where even the paint is a
factory application. The Arctic White has a timeless sense of
style. There's a good gloss to look attractive out on the road, and
as people get closer, it has the aged-in look that lets you tell
the tale of originality. And the full package has the right quality
details. The chrome bumpers shine brightly, and the upgraded wheel
arches add to the polish. Plus, the two-tone red pinstriping adds
the right dash of vibrant color.
The black soft top has the proper look of formalwear against the
white paint. This also has a color-matched hardtop that gives you
the option to have a very coupe-like profile whenever you want. But
of course, this one was really meant to be open to the world. The
tan leather interior is just as timeless as the white paint when it
comes to symbols of elegance. The seats were even updated later in
life to remain looking and feeling good. Power windows, plush
carpeting, cruise control, crisp VDO gauges, and a commanding
feeling from the driver's seat are all part of that true driver's
car attitude you get from a proper Mercedes SL. And because this is
a later model car, you get all the best safety features like
anti-lock brakes, a third brake light, and a driver's airbag.
The 560SL was really the car to have from the R107 period because
it combined a powerful motor with a reputation for durability. You
can tell by the cleanliness of the engine bay that this has been
treated and maintained correctly. There's even a newer aluminum
radiator. So nothing is stopping you from hitting the road for a
long weekend. When you do, this luxury convertible strikes the
perfect balance between a nimble machine and an all-day cruiser.
That's thanks to a specially engineered fully independent
suspension, four-speed automatic transmission with overdrive, and
four-wheel power disc brakes. They all work in harmony to provide a
true luxury experience that has been the envy of other
There are details you may improve if you want the perfect Benz,
like restoring the factory air conditioning, adding a new interior
wood kit, or updating the paint. But what this one represents is a
highly original Mercedes with all the best pieces already in place.
So you have a prestigious classic that loves to cruise right from
day one. That's what makes this one irresistible. Call today!!!
