For Sale: 1989 Mercedes-Benz 560SL in Lutz, Florida

Vehicle Description

This 1989 Mercedes-Benz 560SL is a loaded luxury classic that's coming off of over two decades of long-term ownership. So you have a well-preserved and well-presented V8 cruiser with leather seats, cold A/C, both tops, and plenty more of the features you desire.


The Signal Red paint has the right look of the factory application, and it reminds you that Mercedes built these R107 SLs correctly from day one. So while the odometer is believed to reflect the full actual mileage, a premium application (and 21 years under the same respected owner) means you have quite an attractive classic. You may find details to improve, but the straight sheet metal, complete trim, premium golden pinstripe, and German precision in the door action tell you that you're looking at a proper classic Benz. Plus, having the option of two tops is always preferred on these SLs. It gives you a stylish choice where the black folding roof goes well with the rubber on the bumpers and side trim, and the color-matched hardtop gives you a coupe-like profile.


As much as we like the look of both roofs, most will agree that these look best with no top at all. That's especially true when you have an attractive color inside like the Cashmere tan. Beyond just the ideal hues, this Mercedes is desirable because there's plenty of evidence of a pampered life. The carpets, dashboard, and center console have an attractively clean style. You'll even appreciate details like the plush trunk and the first aid kit still on the rear shelf. The 560SL was one of the most expensive cars Mercedes offered during its reign, so the features list is quite long. This includes conveniences such as air conditioning, power windows, power steering, cruise control, an upgraded AM/FM stereo with CD changer, and supple leather upholstery. Because this is a later R100, there are also more modern safety features than most R107s, such as anti-lock brakes, a third brake light, and a driver's airbag.


The 560SL came with a big 5.6-liter V8 motor making 238 hp and 287 lb-ft of torque - more than the estimated power of a contemporary Rolls-Royce. It meant this fuel-injected powerhouse can move this drop-top with the proper authority. And the suspension knows how to be an ideal balance of a comfortable ride with still remaining an engaging machine. This package was topped off with a four-speed automatic transmission and four-wheel disc brakes for the best all-around control.


Complete with the owner's manual, it's hard not to get excited about complete timeless elegance for less than the price of a new convertible out there. But you're not the only one who sees this, so it won't last long in our showroom. Call today!!!
