Description:

1987 Mercedes-Benz 500-Series 2 Dr Convertible

Very solid 1987 Mercedes-Benz 560SL for sale in San Francisco, CA. Showing a shade over 100K miles from new (3,300 per year) this is an excellent platform for a high-end restoration. Mechanically and structurally sound and showing no rust, the car would benefit from a cosmetic restoration to cement it into the rapidly appreciating 560 collectors' market.The drivetrain is in great running shape and exhibits no areas of concern. The car starts, runs and drives without issue. There is a smooth pull through the revs and the recent service work is evident. 10,000 miles ago the engine was refreshed per Mercedes recommendation with a top end job which included ignition system and valve adjustment and replacement gaskets. The timing chain was also replaced and new camshafts installed.With the history evident and the verified mileage showing, this car would easily fetch 25,000 EURs on the open market but will need attention to interior condition and paint. The car wears its original (516) Medium Red color with one older respray showing. Interior is complete buy could use tidying. Front seats were reupholstered in factory appropriate tan vinyl some time ago.Hard top and associated mechanisms are in great shape, with the soft top in almost unused condition. The car retains its original books, tools, jack and spare.Our site posts content to many other sites all over the world.
