Please note that experience shows us that the photobucket of over 100 large pixel pictures posted here are in most cases best viewed and downloaded using the very latest and most updated version of the 'Firefox' browser as some other browsers and especially older browser versions are not capable of accommodating the size of the download. Over the years our clients have overwhelmingly been appreciative of our many unaltered large pixel photos posted in our ads and our feedback has been that it is very rare that a dealer will post all but the most flattering of professionally finished photographs. We prefer to post the many photos taken of the car, n sometimes unflattering but natural sunlight, n order for our prospective buyers to be able to see true and reliable images of the car advertised and that is the reason for some seemingly duplicated shots. We trust you will agree.

Obviously always garaged and covered with no accidents and a clean CARFAX report with the original factory 'Arctic White' color paint still virtually flawless and with an absolutely beautiful condition 'Palomino' leather interior with virtually no signs of any wear and with the original leather dashboard and the walnut wood veneer interior still like new (obviously always garaged from the sun and elements!) The car has its original 'German canvas' soft top which is still in as new condition and the car has it's original and also factory matching 'Arctic White' hard top. The car boasts all its original manuals and tools.
The car was purchased new at 'Contemporary Motors', he Mercedes-Benz dealership of Little Silver, J on 6/24/1989 and the car was initially serviced there until being traded back to the dealership with 8,661 original miles in 1991. The dealership promptly sold the car to its second owner who was a 'snowbird' and who moved the car to his winter home in Naples, L where the car was rarely used and where it remained until 2006 when it was then sold to a family member who lived in SC. The car was sold a few months later to a 4th owner/collector in VA, retired former fighter pilot, here it was added to his climate controlled garage collection and who stated that the car was one of the very best examples in the world! The original Michelin tires were still on the car but he mounted 4 new 'Bridgestone Pontenzas' in order to preserve the original tires for when showing the car at club events! The car was taken to a renown local auto body shop where the body shop's owner confirmed the car to be "one of the nicest examples of a 560SL he had ever seen". The car drives exactly like such a well maintained and serviced Mercedes with only 16K original miles should and must be seen and driven to be truly appreciated! The engine is extremely strong with no oil leaks and the temperature always remains cool. All the options are working as they should including the A/C.
Without a doubt, his is one of the finest classically beautiful roadster designs built by Mercedes-Benz, robably the last classically beautiful convertible series they built and now becoming more desirable and collectible than ever before - certainly you will look long and hard to find a finer head-turning example with only 16K original miles of this last and therefore most desirable year model in this most striking and desirable of color combinations available anywhere else!
