1988 Mercedes-Benz 560SL

Owning a Mercedes is a total quality experience, and so when you search for one on the classic market, you want it to have received the proper care and maintenance that a world-class luxury car should. This 1988 Mercedes 560SL is such a vehicle with a numbers-matching motor, low mileage, full maintenance history, and a body that retains its German precision to this day.This is one of the best vehicles for someone who appreciates timeless sophistication with just a hint of flash. The factory-correct Smoke Silver Metallic is understated in its elegance, but it has a shine that nicely complements the mirror-like factory chrome wheels. It also helps that the body retains its crisp and creased appearance, so all of the bodylines flow uninterrupted over smooth and even panels. Today this quality is also about representing one of the best cars of its era. Very few companies could build a convertible without worrying about safety regulations. Mercedes built their cars so robustly that the R107 exceeded these standards, and they did it elegantly without an unsightly roll bar. It was the go-to driver for celebrities, dignitaries, and the wealthy because the sleek lines hid a full size interior and usable trunk that was perfect for any road trip.There's more evidence inside that this car has lived a pampered life. While it has been enjoyed over its low-mileage life, the carpets, dashboard, wood grain center console, and leather seats basically show no signs of sun damage a near impossible find in a classic droptop with an original interior. The 560SL was one of the most expensive cars Mercedes offered during its reign, and so the features list is quite long. This includes desirable conveniences such as power seats, power windows, power locks, power steering, cruise control, an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo, and provisions for air conditioning. Because this was built 1988, there are also more modern features than most R107s, such as a third brake light and a driver's air bag. It comes with both the color-matching removable hardtop and a black folding soft top. If you don't know how to properly stow these roofs, don't worry because this SL comes with the owner's manual and plenty of other original factory literature to help you.The 560SL came with a big 5.6-liter V8 motor making 238 hp and 287 lb-ft of torque more than the contemporary Rolls-Royces. On the road, an R107 has a fully-independent chassis that is the perfect balance of elastic comfort in a tight-handling package. This was topped of with a four-speed automatic transmission and four-wheel disc brakes for the best all-around control. In total, the Mercedes SL is in a class all of its own. It has always been hard to define its competitors because no other car combines grand touring comfort in a quick and nimble machine so perfectly. This example has preserved the heritage and has averaged less than 2,350 miles per year since new. Just because this car has not covered nearly as much ground as its contemporaries does not mean it was sitting out on maintenance. In fact, the full service history file that comes with the car will prove its worth.Purchasing timeless elegance is about starting with the cream of the crop, and this SL is well cared for right down to the huge documentation file that has everything you could want, including the original warranty card.
