1988 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class SL
1988 Mercedes-Benz 560SL Roadster
For your consideration is this great rust free example of the classic R107 chassis SL. The beauty and classic styling of the 107 chassis was so ahead of it’s time that it was in production for nearly 30 years without any major styling changes! It is, in my opinion, one of the most beautiful roadsters that Mercedes-Benz ever made and most recently collectors are beginning to appreciate the cars simple, but classic lines and advanced engineering.
The paint is in great condition and has a great shine. The chrome bumpers and trim are in very good condition.
This roadster comes with both hard and soft top. The hard top is in great condition, and all glass is nice and clear with no hazing, the headliner is spotless, absolutely no rips or tears. The original soft top is in very good condition as well. Rims are perfect with absolutely no curb rash.
The blue Interior is in very good condition. The leather on the seats is soft (as soft as you can call Mercedes leather) and are in excellent condition, there is only the slightest amount of wear on the driver’s side bolster (common on any car especially Mercedes vehicles of this vintage). The original Becker Grand PrixAM/FM Cassette radio is in good working order as is the power antenna. The wood trim is in good condition, there are no hairline cracks that are common on Mercedes vehicles of this vintage. There are no strange smells or odors which are sometimes common in older cars.
-Engine & Transmission-
The original 5.6 eight cylinder engine fires up on the first try and runs nice and smooth. It runs and idles as it should, with no problems. The transmission shifts seamlessly through the gears with no slipping or jerking. There are no strange noises or vibrations from the engine or drive train, all you hear is the wind whipping through your hair, It drives nice and straight at any speed.
