Streetside Classics - Nashville
6000 Reliance Dr
A great color combo, two tops, V8 power, and some interesting extras headline this 1987 Mercedes-Benz 560SL. But you know you really want this because it's a symbol of timeless luxury all offered for an obtainable price.
The factory-correct Astral Silver Metallic has a nice gloss and shine thanks to a professional respray later in life. So it radiates in the sunlight, which is exactly what you want a sunshine-friendly droptop classic to do. Nice paint also does a great job of highlighting the quality you got when paying for one of the most expensive cars in the Mercedes-Benz lineup. They built them right, and so the precision endures. That's why the whole body continues to look crisp, from the elegant folds in the hood, to the line that runs seemingly uninterrupted from headlight to taillight. Bright bumpers, large factory alloys, and the large tri-star leading the way complete an SL package that is forever tasteful.
This comes with both tops. That means the color-matched hardtop gives you a coupe-like appearance whenever you want, or you can choose the folding blue canvas top for a tastefully bold look against the silver paint. This even has the full owner's manual packet, so there are instructions on how to care for them both. But really, we know your favorite way to enjoy this Mercedes is with no top at all. Plus, you have a long list of luxuries, like power windows, power locks, power steering, cruise control, provisions for R134a air conditioning, and an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo w/USD input and Bluetooth. Because this was built 1987, there are also more modern feature, such as anti-lock brakes, a third brake light, and a driver's air bag. The correct Royal Blue leather seats look great against the exterior silver, and the glossy wood trim provides a stylish contrast. Plus, you might have noticed the addition of rear seats, which adds to the versatility and makes this feel quite European.
Under the hood is the big 5.6-liter V8 motor. This is believed to be original to the car, and the long maintenance file reaffirms quality care. That's why this one fires up easily and runs smoothly. These SLs have a terrific reputation where the fully-independent has an ideal balance of elastic comfort and tight-handling. This was topped off with a four-speed automatic transmission and four-wheel disc brakes for the best all-around control.
This is a car with pedigree, so it not only comes with the full owner's manual packet and maintenance records, but also other great paperwork like the dealer invoice, original bill of sale, and window sticker. If you've been searching for a well-respected upper-class classic, you don't want to let this Mercedes slip away. Call today!!!
