Description for Mercedes-Benz SL-Class 1988

I'd like to preface this listing by saying that I am NOT a dealer. I maintain private collections and this car got what it needed, whenever it needed it. You are welcome to come view the car anytime in Lakemoor, IL and take it for a test drive weather permitting. The car can be viewed on a lift and I'm happy to go over it with you.
You're welcome to view more pictures and video of the car here: https://www.artisanmotor.com/2020/06/1988-mercedes-560sl-146k-meticulous.html

Have this gorgeous, meticulously maintained 1988 Mercedes 560SL for sale. Finished in 702 Smoke Silver Metallic paint with 274 Palomino Leather interior. 146k loved and very well maintained miles, this is a driver quality car. It's not flawless by any means, but it's a rust free, accident free, gorgeous example that'll show well anywhere you take it.Just in the past 6k miles alone, the car received a complete timing chain and guide service, new water pump, VC gaskets, belts, AC system vacuumed down, drier replaced, and recharged. All fluids serviced from front to rear. In 2006 the car received a replacement soft top. It has brand new tires on it's meticulous gullideckel 15" wheels.
The car is driven with regularity, as of 1/08/2021 the mileage reads a touch under 147,000. AC is operational and blows cold. Center vents are non operational, which is a common occurrence on these models. Heat works great. Power windows are working great. The car just received a major service for this sale, including belts, oil change, transmission service, differential service to ensure the next buyer has nothing to worry about with this car! The car also received a engine vacuum system repair, the air flow meter boot and and all idle associated components have been replaced and the CIS system retuned. She's running better now than in the video below! Rear brakes replaced and the brakes on all four corners bled.
She's ready to drive cross country (pay my time and I'll do it for you!).
Faults, it's a short list, but I want to make sure I am as clear as possible:- center vents in dash not working- dash has cracks- driver side entry plate plastic has cracked (looking for a replacement!)- hardtop has some mild fading- 2x front fenders have very minor scuffing- central locking slow, though at the time of this listing a replacement gas door lock actuator is on order to repair this problem- wood trim is respectable, obviously has some minor cracking
Please get in touch for more details - I'm happy to provide you detailed videos of ANYTHING on the car!
