1988 Mercedes Benz 560SL
43,897 miles from new.
Black Pearl (Code 199)
Burgundy Leather (Code 277)
Current owner of this beautiful example of a late model w107 searched for the better part of 3 years to find this car.
He was seeking a 100% rust free and all original paint car that was completely free of any corrosion and well maintained.
This 1988 Mercedes Benz 560SL was the perfect fit !!!
The car was originally purchased in 1988 in Texas, and was purchased by the second owner in 1991 also in Texas.
If you take the time to examine the photos of the engine bay and undercarriage you will notice that this vehicle looks fresher than most 10k mile examples.
It was reported to have never been driven in the rain and the undercarriage tells all the story about the vehicles use and care.
Always garage kept and covered when not in use.
Current owner bought the car approximately 1 year ago and had the following items addressed:
All fluids and filters changed.
AC serviced.
New fuel pump and filter.
New timing belt tensioner.
All belts and hoses checked and replaced as needed.
New motor and transmission mounts.
Becker stereo head unit rebuilt by Becker Autosound of Hackensack NJ.
New valve cover gaskets.
New power steering box.
New high quality Lloyd mats.
This car runs and drives beautifully !!!
The all original paint has a show quality luster.
There are a few small touch ups from hard top removal that he opted to leave unaddressed in an effort to keep the car all original (see photos)
The vehicle's bright-work and original glass are in exceptional condition.
The interior shows beautifully with bright and clear burl wood accents that have a mirror-like shine.
The burgundy leather is not sun faded and butter soft.
A recent acquisition of another long sought after collector car has forced the sale of this beautiful w107 roadster.
Its a collector quality car that needs nothing with thousands of dollars invested in just the past year.
All books, keys, original tools in the bag, are in order as well as the original unused Pirelli spare tire.
Located in Central NJ 07753.
Perspective buyers are welcome to inspect.
Mileage may be slightly higher as the owner may want to take it for a few short mileage fair weather trips to the golf course during the sale.
