Description for Mercedes-Benz SL-Class 1987

A terrific color combo, low mileage, and all the best luxury features make this well maintained/preserved 1987 Mercedes-Benz 560 SL the ideal classic for those who want upper-class distinction.
The factory-correct dark gray looks glossy yet sophisticated. This gives the proper first impression that a premium vehicle commands. In fact, the whole Mercedes has the look of a carefully maintained classic. That's what you get on an example that has averaged about 1,700 miles annually. Straight panels, shining bumpers, and an overall sturdiness of lasting German quality. The black folding roof looks good against the dark gray paint, and it coordinates with the black rubber trim that encircles the car. But when you want true distinction, the color-matched hardtop has a great coupe-like profile.
While having both tops is absolutely desirable, the way that you're going to enjoy this SL the most is with no roof at all. And the gray leather interior is a nice harmonizing color against the exterior to deliver a very premium European look inside and out. The low mileage means this all looks good, and it also comes with all the factory features you want. This includes power windows, power locks, and power seats. Plus, there are nice upgrades, like the AM/FM/CD stereo and the air conditioning is now blowing cold with modern R134a. It's the kind of classic that you'll want to really take on the long road trips, and a later R107 SL like this inspires that kind of confidence. Not only are they robustly built for safety, but also you get more modern features like the third brake light and a driver airbag.
Under the hood is more of that factory-correct presentation that makes this car great. The 5.6-liter V8 motor is numbers-matching unit, and looks stock right down to the decals. In fact, this example is coming off of long term ownership. It has been well-kept right down to the details, like newer wires and hoses. That means you have a strong fuel-injected powerhouse that has been maintained to uphold the stout reputation of Mercedes-Benz. This is a true grand touring machine, and so the sweet V8 is mated to a smooth four-speed automatic transmission with overdrive. Plus, with power steering, four-wheel power disc brakes, and a well-balanced fully-independent suspension, this is the classic you'll love to drive.
The sale comes complete with documentation such as the original warranty card, owner's manual, and service manuals. It also comes with nice accessories like a car cover and a stand for the hardtop. The 560 SL is the Mercedes-Benz that has exemplified the upper echelon of classics, and this example upholds that image to the fullest. Call today!!!
