MINOR IMPERFECTIONS A small split in the dash right at the defroster vent. Picture included. The trunk lid is slightly oxidized. Picture included. Like all things of quality. this classy Mercedes. hand built in Germany. will never go out of style. The paint is good. which shows you what you got for $61. 00 in 1988 dollars. My Aunt willed this car to me and it’s been very sparingly driven since I inherited it. She was the second owner. The mileage and service is fully documented and can be sent as . jpg's should you like to see the records. This lovely little roadster just passed California’s strict smog check with flying colors. As you'd expect of a car built in Germany. fit and finish are exemplary and show the pride with which this lovely car was built. The doors open smoothly and close with precision. The gaskets are all in good shape. as are the heavy rubber bumpers front and rear. The spare tire is in the well. This car has been garaged or covered all while my family has owned it. It has not been wrecked and I’m pretty sure it’s 100% stock. The radio works as does the antenna. The palomino leather interior is in excellent condition and a great compliment to the exterior color. The feeling you get when you sit behind the wheel is an experience you will long to repeat; and when you own it. you certainly can. All SLs came standard with two tops. a color-matched hard top and a folding canvas top in an enclosed well. In this car's case. the original convertible top is like brand new not having been out of it’s snug and dry enclosure for many years (my Aunt was in her 70’s when she bought the car around 1990 +/-. and couldn’t remove the top). The AC blows cold just as it should. Of course. the real reason you want a 560SL is the engine. a 5. 6-liter SOHC V8 that has a robust 227 horsepower and 279 pounds of torque. This motor hustles you right along even better than those figures would suggest. Not that you will be racing this fascinating machine. however it’s nice to know that when you need to ask for additional oomph. you have it available to you. Factory specs show top speed of 139 mph and a 0-60 time of 7. 3 seconds. Renowned for impeccable reliability this much loved car has way more life left than it’s years would seem to indicate. Many of these cars travel reliably well over 100K miles and this one only has half that amount under her belt. At this price. in this all stock condition. with the gorgeous color. this SL is not going to last long at all. If there was ever a car that exemplified Mercedes-Benz's motto "Das Beste oder Nichts" ("The Best or Nothing. ). this might be it. If you have concerns I’m happy to answer any questions you may have. If you so desire. please make an appointment to see and drive this lovely car BEFORE you bid. I am unwilling to ship this car out of the country. Please do not ask. If you have 0 bids. or any bid retractions shown. then I must ask for the full non-refundable deposit within 24 hours of auction close. Shipping. pick-up and delivery are the responsibility of the buyer. Liability and collision insurance on the vehicle will be canceled when the vehicle leaves my property. please obtain your own insurance. All sales are final.
