1989 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class

LOOKING FOR A 560SL?

AFTER PURCHASINGAND SELLING MANY OF THESE VEHICLES (THIS IS THE 10TH VEHICLE OFFERED FOR SALE) - I WOULD OFFER THE FOLLOWING THE ADVICE "CAVEAT EMPTOR" (LET THE BUYER BEWARE)! MANY OF THESE VEHICLE OFFERED FOR SALE HAVE MISLEADING PICTURES AND DESCRIPTIONS. MANY ARE BEING SOLD BECAUSE THEY NEED REPAIRS (SOMETIMES MAJOR) AND YOU CAN REALLY GET TAKEN!

IF YOU CANNOT INSPECT THE VEHICLE PRIOR TO PURCHASE/OR YOU ARE NOT TERRIBLY KNOWLEDGEABLE YOU ARE TOTALLY DEPENDENT OF THE SELLER'S DESCRIPTION AND EBAY RATINGS. BUYING FROM A DEALER CAN OFTEN BE PROBLEMATIC AS THEY TEND TO LEAVEOUT IMPORTANT DETAILS ABOUT THE VEHICLE'S CONDITION AND PICTURES ARE OFTEN MISLEADING.

THEREFORE IT IS ALWAYS IMPORTANT TO CHECK OUT THE SELLER'S EBAY RATINGS-BOTH THE NUMBER AND THE QUALITY OF THE FEEDBACK.

HAVING SAID THAT LET ME SHARE WITH YOU MY PHILOSOPHY. I AM A SEMI-RETIRED PHYSICIAN AND MY HOBBY IS REFURBISHING 560 SL'S. ANY MECHANICAL ISSUES ARE SUBBED OUT TO MY EXPERIENCED GERMAN MECHANIC. MAJOR UPOLSTERY WORK IS ALSO SUBBED OUT. I FOCUS ON THOSE RELATIVELY "NIGGLING" ISSUES THAT TEND TO BE QUITE EXPENSIVE WHEN PERFORMEDIN A SHOP.

MY PHILOSOPHY IS SIMPLE: "PURCHASE A QUALITY VEHICLE AND PERFORM ALL NECESSARY REPAIRS TO A POINT WHERE I WOULD KEEP IT FOR MY PERSONAL USE".
