This 1988 Mercedes 560SL comes with a great factory color combo,
both tops, a comfy interior, and plenty of fuel-injected V8 power.
Who knew this much distinction and class could be available for
such an affordable price?
Diamond Blue is not a color we see too often on these classic R107
SLs. It has a modern and dignified quality that really gives the
classic lines distinction. This shows all the right signs of being
the factory paint, and the odometer is believed to reflect the full
actual mileage. So while it shows some age and use, it certainly
still looks good. After all, it has likely traveled less than many
other cars out there (about 3100 miles annually) and there's always
a nice look to a Benz of this era. So when precision craftsmanship
meets a lifetime of quality care, you get a car that has crisp
lines of quality. Plus, you get both a color-matched removable
hardtop and a folding soft top that comes in a nice complementary
The darker blue interior harmonizes with the Diamond Blue exterior
(and coordinates with the pinstripe) and has that sophisticated
level of style that can only come from the best European carmakers.
So you know you're going to love driving with the top down. And
cruising is what an SL like this was really meant to do. You have
comfortable features like well-engineered bucket seats, power
windows, power locks, a wood trim interior, a fold-down center
armrest, and provisions for air conditioning (it will need
servicing to blow cold again.)
Under the hood is a clean presentation of the 5.6-liter V8. This
fuel-injected powerhouse was a true torque master of its day, and
so it gave the flagship SL a great cruiser feeling. There's even a
four-speed automatic transmission with overdrive and cruise control
for the long haul. Plus, this was built to be an all-around fun and
luxurious driver with a fully independent suspension, power
steering, and four-wheel power disc brakes with ABS.
The sale comes complete with some maintenance records as well as
the owner's manual packet. There is room for your own
personalization and improvement on this Mercedes, and so you may
want to restore the A/C, add new touring tires, give it a tune-up,
or other details to add to the luxurious nature. But from day one,
you'll be pleased with this beautiful Benz convertible with an
impressive sense of style. So don't miss this deal, call today!
