 Vehicle Description
The R107 series of Mercedes-Benz roadsters were some of the most successful cars ever produced by the German automaker. Today they remain fantastic cruisers with great performance and an iron-clad reputation for quality and durability. This beautifully maintained 1987 560SL is the one to own, with the biggest engine fitted to an R107, and the longest list of standard features. Of course, it still carries the instantly-recognizable bodywork that defined almost two decades worth of SLs, with the only noteworthy change being a tacked-on third brake light mandated by the Feds in 1986. Wearing 100% of its original sheetmetal and paint, this astoundingly clean SL is exactly the kind of no-stories car you want to own. Theres still a great shine to the paint, because you truly did get something exceptional for your money back in 1987, and theres no denying that Mercedes-Benz did put these together with extreme care-just look at the way the panels fit. And until youve slammed the door on one of these over-built tanks, you dont know how solid a topless car can be.



The beautiful contrasting blue interior is largely new, including a fresh dash pad, seat covers in original MB-Tex, and fresh wood inserts in the dash. As a car that has spent most of its life with the top down, its not surprising that the sun took a toll, and the new components are OEM quality in every way. The seats have that firm feeling that only Mercedes seats seem to deliver, and all the gauges are fully functional. In fact, everything works, rare on other machines this sophisticated but common on well-maintained R107s. By 87, just about everything was standard on the SL, including automatic climate control, a power passenger side mirror, power windows, cruise control, and recent additions like airbags and ABS brakes. The fully lined trunk is fitted with plush blue carpets, and this car includes both a soft top and removable hard top.



Recently serviced with extensive receipts, the 5.6-liter V8 engine under the hood was a big upgrade in the power department. The engine lights off with a rumbling V8 idle and pulls hard thanks to 227 horsepower and a quick-shifting 4-speed automatic transmission. The engine bay is tidy and shows signs of the recent service work, and original details like the painted fender bolts (at the factory, the fenders were installed and then the car was painted) and production tag on the radiator cradle remain completely intact. These cars routinely run hundreds of thousands of miles with proper maintenance, and thanks to the extensive paperwork with this one, including new bushings and ball joints underneath, you can buy with confidence. Even the tires are relatively recent Goodyears on near-flawless 16-inch M-B alloy wheels.



Even though its nearly 25 years old, this SL commands respect on the road with great performance and sumptuous comfort. Showing up in this car still means youve truly arrived; only you will know how affordable it really is. Call us today!
