Description for Mercedes-Benz 560SL 1988

This 1988 Mercedes 560SL comes with a great factory color combo, both tops, loaded A/C interior, and rare back seat. Who knew this much distinction and class could be available for such an affordable price?Looking very bright and tropical in its factory-correct Petrol Green Metallic, this 560SL is for someone who wants their car to signal that fun times are ahead. But more than just a cheery attitude, there is an underlying premium appearance to all the Mercedes SLs. So it gives this bright one an instant respect that comes from paint and body panels that remain quite nice through the decades. And the pinstriping even reminds you of the car's conservative side. In fact, this one keeps all the best Mercedes traditions with its precision panel gaps, superior brightwork, and doors that close with the kind of confident 'THUNK' that only a quality Benz can provide.While the Camel interior is a great coordinating color, we bet it's not how it looks on the seats, but instead, how many seats there are that first grabs our attention. It's rare to find an SL from this generation with rear seats and seatbelts because it was an option Mercedes never officially offered to the USA. Beyond distinction and convenience, this interior looks quite clean and well maintained. The 560SL was one of the most expensive cars Mercedes offered during its reign, and the features list is quite long. This includes desirable conveniences such as power windows, power locks, power steering, cruise control, and cold air conditioning so you can enjoy top-down motoring long into the summer season. The radio has even been upgraded to an AM/FM/CD stereo with modern Bluetooth connection. Because this was built 1988, there are also more modern features than most R107s, such as a third brake light, anti-lock brakes, and a driver's air bag. It comes with both the color-matching removable hardtop and a black folding soft top. If you don't know how to properly stow these roofs, don't worry, because this SL also comes with the owner's manual and plenty of other original factory literature to help you.The 560SL came with a big 5.6-liter V8 motor making 238 hp and 287 lb-ft of torque rivaling the contemporary Rolls-Royces of the day. You can tell by the cleanliness of the engine bay and undercarriage that this has always been a cherished luxury machine. So there's nothing stopping you from hitting the road for a long weekend, and when you do, this luxury convertible strikes the perfect balance between nimble machine and all-day cruiser. On the road, this R107 model has a fully-independent chassis offers both elastic comfort and tight-handling. The four-speed automatic transmission also strikes a balance between performance and overdrive comfort cruising. The total package is finished off with four-wheel disc brakes and new Michelin tires on those iconic factory alloys.Beyond the full owner's manual packet, you also receive the original warranty info and maintenance records everything you need to continue this car's exceptional legacy. So when you can stand out in all the best ways for such a nice price, you know this is a deal that will be leaving us soon. Call today!!!
