1989 Mercedes-Benz SL-ClassA Very Special Wedding Anniversary Gift
Sixteen years ago, I gave my wife of 25 years the best wedding anniversary (December 13 1975) gift ever. It was this stunning 1989 Signal Red 560SL Mercedes Benz Convertible with Palomino Tan leather interior. Finding it was no easy task, but after searching everywhere for almost a year, I found it with a wealthy collector in Atlanta. Hardly driven, with only 4,020 miles, without exaggeration it was showroom perfect...and yes it was expensive. "Hey the woman put up with me for 25 years after all!"
For the next 16 years we really enjoyed this convertible...and I'm proud to say we carefully drove it just on weekends, mostly around town and yes occasionally to "church on Sundays"...really. However, one of the coolest things about it is it has served in that timeless "Happy Bride and Groom Whisked Off for the Honeymoon" photo now in any number of wedding albums, not least of which our daughter's.
Fast forward to today. We have recently retired, and bought ourselves a small place at the beach. Sadly we just can't take the Mercedes there. That salt air is the worst thing for a collector car like ours. Today, just like before, it has extremely low mileage with only 18,046...and like before, everything on it is still original, just as the day it was first purchased...still stunning.
Thus, with mixed feelings we've decided perhaps it's time to give someone else the chance to own what is still one of the, if not the nicest, 1989 560SL out there...yes we are selling her.
Questions??? Original hard top, yes...accidents, never...original parts, from bumper to bumper, yes...radio, eight track, clock, all working and all original. This includes all owners manuals still in their plastic. The only thing we've replaced are the original tires. Everything works perfectly, maintained regularly.
My name is Scott, my number is 205-914-9581. Whoever buys this convertible will be getting one of the finest out there. Thanks for your interest.
