For Sale: 1986 Mercedes-Benz 560SL in Mesa, Arizona

Vehicle Description

This 1986 Mercedes-Benz 560SL has the right care, good mileage, and the right hints of upgrades. Plus, the color combo is one that we rarely see, but you can instantly tell it portrays the best in upper-class desire.


Dark blue has a timeless sophistication that makes for a stand-out Benz. Not only is this the factory-correct color, but it's also believed to be the factory application. It retains a nice gloss 35+ years later to make sure it showcases the well-respected and well-engineered body. Both the folding soft top and optional hardtop are done in dark blue. So you have an attractive and coordinated style if you're just looking for quick weather protection or want a coupe-like profile. Plus, the interior tan is exceptionally stylish for when you want to go with no roof at all. The chrome bumpers have a bright shine to contrast the dark paint tastefully. And this is complemented by upgraded polished pieces like the wheel arches, rub strips, and 15-inch alloys. So it all makes for a quality package.


The exterior has a distinctive gold and orange pinstripe, and it looks like if you combined the two colors, you'd get the interior's tan. So this one has a harmonized look inside and out that is ideal to have on a convertible. It has the look of a well-respected car that has traveled less than its peers (only averaging about 2,500 miles annually.) Just as it was when new, this respected classic remains a great driver's car. So you get contoured bucket seats with a center armrest in-between. You have the best factory amenities like power windows, power locks, cruise control, and cold-blowing air conditioning. There's even an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo with a powered subwoofer for better driving music. The R107 was a lasting symbol of quality because Mercedes-Benz was known for offering quite a secure convertible. They built their drop-tops with added body strength for a robust feel. Plus, even in 1986, you got anti-lock brakes and this was the first year for the driver's airbag. This one is full of all sorts of surprises, including the added rear seat that wasn't even an option in the USA.


The 560SL came with a big 5.6-liter V8. This fuel-injected powerhouse has been treated with the same level of respect as the rest of the car, and we have the maintenance file to prove it. You can tell by the presentation of the engine bay and the cleanliness of the undercarriage that this has always been a cherished luxury machine. But more than just looking good, this was a total package that was made for the grand tour. It's an all-day cruiser with a fully-independent suspension, four-speed automatic transmission with overdrive, power steering, and four-wheel power disc brakes.


The sale comes complete with the owner's manual and maintenance records. This SL has the V8 power, distinct colors, and unique upgrades that make it a stand-out classic. Call today!!!
