1987 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class 560 SL Coupe/Roadster 2DYou are bidding on a Classic 1987 Mercedes-Benz 560SL.
Excellent condition inside/outside/under the hood.
Looks Runs and Drives Great!
This car will satisfy any discriminating buyer. It is a real beauty!
Everything in and on this car works like it should.
84,793 miles. 3 1/2 owners. The first owner had the car especially built for her in November 1986 ( See picture showing the metal stamped plate that Mercedes in Germany made for her with build and owner info). She lived in San Francisco. I believe that at some point she passed away and her daughter (who lived in Southern California 'inherited' the car from her. I bought the car 3 years ago when it had 73,000 miles on it from an auto dealer that had bought the car at an auction that the daughter used to sell it.
This car has obviously always been garaged and has always had non-smoking owners. It has no cracks in the interior dashboard, ood or leather, r any other common obvious signs of sunwear (that one could rightfully expect in a 29 year old car) on the inside of the car. Inside carpet, eats and mats are in Excellent condition. Seats are in great mechanical condition. No sagging in the drivers seat. Has the additional seat option in the back, ut I just use it as a cushion for the stereo speakers.
The body is straight, ust free (It has always been a west coast car.), nd all the plates, oors and bumpers line/match up perfectly.
The engine is quiet, nd the transmission changes gears smoothly.
The tires are good, nd spare tire might have never been used.
Looks and Drives great!
Every time you drive this car, very time you let someone else drive or ride in this car...... you WILL get compliments on how great it looks and runs! That is MY GUARANTEE !!
I would say that this vehicle is in Near-Mint condition on the inside and Excellent +++ on the outside.
It has it's original paint that is 29 years old now. Paint job still looks GREAT, ut upon very close inspection you will find some light scratches, nd few (2) very small (1/4") chip spots, HEY, t is a 29 year old paint job!! ....So lets stick with the 'Excellent+++ Condition' tag for the outside.
This car got a smog cert a few weeks ago, ood for 90 days. I just paid the annual DMV registration a week ago.
The exterior color is Smoke Silver, hich is a less common and really nice looking color - the color to the eye will look quite different depending on whether it is cloudy or sunny outside!
