1987 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class 560 SL


This 1987 Mercedes-Benz SL 560 is priced to sell. You will notice that other SL-560s with such low mileage are listed much higher. Don't miss out on an opportunity to own oneof only 13,394 SL-560s made in 1987 with such low mileage.

I took over this car from my in-laws in 2009 and only drove about 2,500 miles since. My in-laws purchased it used so there are three owners of record for this car. It has always been garaged and I changed oil every year although I rarely ever drove it. The car still runs great!

  • Recently replaced radiator and water pump.
  • The soft-top was replaced about 8 years ago and rarely ever used after the replacement. The color of the soft-top is black and look great.

One known issue: AC stopped working so I had it diagnosed from a Mercedes repair place. After a dye test, it was determined that the compressor is working fine but the gasket right above the compressor is where Freon leaks. They quoted me $450 to fix it, almost all of it in labor cost. I decided not to repair it since I rarely ever drive this car. I DO NOT guarantee that this diagnosis was correct. I would personally install a new compressor while fixing the gasket since the mechanic would have to remove it anyhow. This site has a compressor for $159 delivered. http://www.automotix.net/usedautoparts/1987-mercedes-560sel-ac_compressor-inventory.html I do not know of any other issues.

Cosmetic blemishes: I marked on pictures as best as I can so please refer to the pictures with this list.

  • Driver seat has a small patch of worn leather and a quarter size tear on the seat.

  • Dash has two hairline cracks about 3 to 4 inches long. You can see one of the cracks and the other one is about the same.

  • Top of the trunk has some scratches I am showing on one of the pictures. They are not deep scratches. I do not really see any other noticeable scratches around the body of the car but I do not know how picky you are.

  • This car was involved in one accident when my mother-in-law got hit on the passenger door side in a low speed collision.

    I am including a roof pulley system which can be mounted above to lift the hardtop. As I mentioned on the picture, I have never used it and do not know if all the components are in the box. I am including this “free” and I cannot guarantee the completeness. The original car manual and hardtop removal tool are included as well.

    Please shoot me an email if you have any questions or would like to see/test drive it in person (if you live in Denver area or would like to come over to look). I will be glad to take more pictures if you need more. Happy bidding!
