1988 Mercedes-Benz 500-Series 2 Dr Convertible
With a great color combo, precision sheetmetal, and timeless elegance, this 1988 Mercedes-Benz 560SL continues to offer the upper-class feeling in an affordable vintage package. Averaging only about 2,500 miles annually mean this has always been a cherished Benz. The factory-correct Arctic White paint has timeless desirability Ã¢â‚¬â€œ especially when the color still retains its quality luster. Plus, the panels have been carefully maintained to retain their German-precision feeling. Also, this one carries the distinction of the more aerodynamic factory alloy wheels that only came on the later R107 cars. This is an extra level of desire here as you dig into the details. After all, these later R107s mean the latest advances while still being eligible for vintage insurance and/or registration discounts. Plus, this example was built to have a very thoughtful coordinating package. The blue pinstripe matches the blue folding roof to give this the best European sensibility. And the removable color-matched hardtop gives you the option to have a very coupe-like profile whenever you want. Of course, this one was really meant to be open to the world. The blue leather interior completes a great coordinated feeling inside and out. Lower mileage means less seat time, and so the bucket seats, carpeting, door panels, and wood trim all looks great. Plus, their condition is a further affirmation of this car's well-respected life. When a R107 looks great, it's exactly what you want. These defined a generation by combining open-top freedom with luxury features like power windows, power locks, power antenna, tilt/telescopic steering column, and the desirable Becker Grand Prix AM/FM/cassette stereo. Plus, the climate control has been converted to modern R134a, so you get to enjoy this one long into the summer season. Because this is a later model car, you get all the best safety features like as anti-lock brakes, a third brake light, and a driver's airbag. The 560SL was really the car to have from the R107 period because it combined a powerful motor with a reputation for bulletproof durability. You can tell by the cleanliness of the engine bay that this has always been a cherished luxury machine. So there's nothing stopping you from hitting the road for a long weekend. When you do, this luxury convertible strikes the perfect balance between nimble machine and all-day cruiser. That's thanks to a specially engineered fully independent suspension, four-speed automatic transmission with overdrive, and four-wheel disc brakes. They all work in harmony to provide a true luxury experience that has been the envy of other car makers. The sale comes with all the right paperwork, including the full owner's manual packet, original warranty card, service manuals, and maintenance records. So you get steadfast elegance with all the right features Ã¢â‚¬â€œ that's true grand touring enjoyment. And it can be all yours if you call today!
