"In 1986, Mercedes-Benz shipped its most powerful SL of the decade to the U.S. in the 560SL. The car was also the heaviest of the 1971-89 R107 SLs that Mercedes produced, but the new 5.5-liter V-8 engine's 227 hp did a fine job of mitigating that fact. Top speed was much improved (from 110 mph in the 380SL to 130 mph), and the car was quicker from a standstill to 60 mph by about 4 full seconds. The engine was much torquier, too, which greatly improved the cars' dynamics. Likewise, the car received a new rear suspension and a limited-slip differential to better handle the added torque and power. Mercedes-Benz also added anti-lock brakes, leather upholstery, an alarm system, and an air bag, all of which better suited the car's $48,000 price tag." – Hagerty.com
GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this well-maintained example of the 1987 Mercedes-Benz 560SL Convertible for your consideration. Featuring its powerful V8 engine, plush interior and drop top enjoyment, this is really the best of both worlds and at a much more reasonable price than when it was new! From the outside, the paint looks excellent with its chrome bumper accents, very nice condition wheels and dark blue top all in great condition. The interior is in great condition as well with its luxury dark blue leather interior, the power windows all fully functioning, working A/C, working heat, power steering, power brakes, power locks, the radio has been replaced with a very nice working aftermarket unit, gauges, seat adjustments, lights, horn and more are all fully functioning like they should be with no surprises or clear evidence of work to be done otherwise! The soft top was recently replaced and shows almost no signs of wear, the hard top is also in wonderful condition despite it being used quite a bit more out of the two. With all the drivability intact, this vehicle is a shining example of the 560SL and not enough can be said for how well it's been kept! Our test drive showed that it is strong in every gear, smooth shifting, sure footed handling and excellent braking. Leaving little up to the imagination and ready to be enjoyed by its next owner, call or email us today for a closer look at your new favorite convertible just in time for summer!
