WE SHIP WORLDWIDE! OFFERS WELCOME! Evolve Motors is pleased to present this timeless Mercedes – Benz 560SL! What We Know: This classic 1986 Mercedes 560SL was born into the eclectic R107 family, with an ever – growing fan base. The timeless lines and sharp angles were a transition from the early SL’s, and people loved them. Still offering a hard top / soft top combo, this little roadster came equipped with ample power, thanks to a 5.6L V8, which was an uncommon trend from European sports car manufacturers of the time, which mostly focused on high revving 4 & 6 cylinders. As a matter of fact, the later SL’s were equipped with larger V8’s, mainly for American’s seeking that V8 power of the other domestic brands. This particular example is a nice, dry survivor. We were told from the previous owner that the odometer became inoperable before he bought the car, but was assured with service records that the car had less than 80,000 on it when he bought it. He then put less than 5,000 on the car himself. We just want to clarify that we cannot state the actual mileage at this time, but estimate it to be between 80 – 85,000. Regardless, their have been some recent updates on this car to ensure it still has a lot of life left in her! The Exterior: This Mercedes shows well on the initial walk around. It is in fair condition for it’s age, but does show some blemishes here and there. Aside from the minor dings, chips, and some faded clear coat in the driver door, the car’s got really nice lines. The sheet metal is all original, with no bondo or rust. The trunk and rear cowl do have some heavier scratches on them, as most of these SL’s do, just from installing and removing the hard top over and over again. We were told that the hardtop and hood were both re-painted in 2015, and both match up nicely. The entire storage area for the soft top looks great, nice and dry. The soft top itself is also in great condition, with no cracked windows or leaks. We do note that inside the soft top some of the stitching has come apart on one of the support braces, but isn’t really a problem to the overall function of the soft top. The underside of the car appears to have been undercoated long ago, and has kept the bottom side extremely clean and dry. Aside from the few blemishes, this car’s exterior shows very well and has tons of potential. The Interior: Slide on into the well – bolstered captain’s seat and take stock of your surroundings. Imagine it’s 1988, there’s no wonder this thing had a sticker price of over $62,000! It’s got options some new cars don’t have. The interior is in really good condition, from floor carpet to seat leather, minimal wear and tear on most all surfaces. As with most mid 80’s Mercedes, the finish on the wood-grain center console has seen it’s better days, and is showing some cracking and age. The Becker radio has been replaced with a newer CD player with AUX hookup. The headliner for the hard top shows some light staining, but nothing out of the norm.
