For Sale: 1986 Mercedes-Benz 560SL in Boulder, Colorado

Vehicle Description

Beautiful original paint and tops. Always garaged.
Known history since 1990, believed to have been leased when new in 1986 in the Atlanta, GA area, then purchased at a dealer by my close friends as her daily driver to and from work. I purchased the car from her 5 years ago and had it shipped from Atlanta to Colorado. The car has never been in snow or salt and is rust free.

My friends decided to restore the car rather than sell it in the early 2000’s replacing the wheels and the interior with new carpet and seats matching the original. They also replaced many seals, suspension and other parts to bring the car back to top condition and added new Michelin tires in 2006. 
The paint and both tops are original and are in very good condition with a few scratches as seen in the photos. Most scratches are minor except where hard top was scratched during storage despite the canvas cover. Beautiful light color stitching can be seen in the close-up photos of the soft top which is in remarkable condition due to the fact that it has been used sparingly over the years.

The car has a clear Colorado title without an odometer reading because the odometer was not working when I purchased the car. 210,000 is an estimate. Actual true mileage is unknown. Very fey miles have been put on the car in the last 16 years as can be seen by the amount of tread on the tires which were installed in 2006.

Air Conditioning works and coolant has been upgraded so periodic recharges are economical. Clock and radio work, power antenna and cruise control do not work. The dash board has typical age cracks.

Very fun to drive with powerful V8 and automatic transmission..
