Description:

1988 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class 560SL

Dallas Motor Club is pleased to offer this stunning 1988 Mercedes-Benz 560SL.


This 560SL has been with the same owner since 2002 until recently when it arrived in our showroom. The exterior is finished in the stunning and very rare Blue Green Color and shows extremely well for it’s age. Minor imperfections in the exterior include a circle blemish in the paint on the passenger side of the trunk where a sticker was for years and a 2” area of bubbling on passenger lower fender near rocker panel. The factory 15” Gullideckel alloys are still in great shape a wear newer Michelin tires with plenty of tread left.


The cabin is trimmed in pebble leather with burl wood trim on the dash and center console. Factory features include automatic climate control and cruise control. Interior functions are working as they should with exception of the factory Becker radio (turns on, just no noise) and the A/C is not blowing cold.


Power comes from a 5.5L V8 mated to a 4-speed automatic transmission, and recent service includes, new alternator, new battery, new ignition switch and new brakes. The 5.5-liter M117 V8 featured overhead cams and Bosch electronic fuel injection for factory ratings of 227 horsepower and 287 lb-ft of torque. Power is sent to to the rear wheels through a 4-speed automatic transmission with overdrive and a limited-slip differential.


Standard features of the R107 included fully independent suspension, 4-wheel disc brakes with ABS, and a limited-slip differential.


This 560SL is now showing just over 81k miles and will be sold with a matching hardtop, car cover, misc service receipts, manuals, keys, clean Carfax and a clean MA title.


Overall this is a very clean and presentable 560SL that will offer years of top down enjoyment for the future new owner.
