560SL 1987

Title Status --
Exterior Color Champagne
Interior Color Burgundy


A terrific color combo, both tops, a loaded A/C interior, and an exceptionally well-preserved appearance are just some of the reasons why people will expect you had paid far more for this 1987 Mercedes-Benz 560SL. But we'll keep your value-price a secret for free.

The desirability of this one is far more than just its affordability. We believe this to be the original Champagne paint, and over three decades later, it still has a good luster that will make you proud to drive it on sunny days. That's part of the superior Mercedes build quality, and also what you get when a car has only had two careful owners all its life. It's this attention to detail that's also why the body panels are so straight and uniform, too. The 560SL is a timeless symbol of elegance, and the color combo on this one amplifies this style. The Europeans are the best with sophisticated color combos. Not only does the burgundy pinstripe look good against the paint, but also the folding roof matches the pinstripe. The full style is like dropping a raspberry into your champagne toast. So it gives this one a touch of class even with the soft top in place. Plus, whenever you want a coupe-like appearance, you can put on the color-matched hardtop that also comes with the sale.

And more than just a great color-coordinated exterior, the burgundy interior also coordinates with the exterior pinstripe. The result is a car that looks tasteful no matter how you decide to drive it. The leather seats feel fresh, the carpeting is plush, and the wood remains glossy - it's exactly how you want a premium classic Benz to be. The 560SL was one of the most expensive cars Mercedes offered during its reign, and so the features list is quite long. This includes conveniences such as power windows, power locks, a power antenna, cruise control, and cold-blowing air conditioning. The stereo was even upgraded to an AM/FM/CD stereo with USB and Bluetooth for the best in modern driving music. And because this was built in 1987, there are also more modern safety features than other R107 SLs, such as anti-lock brakes, a third brake light, and a driver's airbag.

The fuel-injected 5.6-liter V8 has always had the right kind of power to move this luxury convertible with ease. This is said to be the original motor on this actual mileage car, and it has the look of top maintenance. While we have the records to prove the care, all you really need to do is experience how this one fires up eagerly to understand its quality. And the new exhaust gives this V8 a proper tone of dignified authority. These big motor SLs are known for their grand touring comfort with a sharp but comfy ride from the fully independent suspension. Add in the four-speed automatic transmission w/overdrive, power steering, and four-wheel power disc brakes, and this is the ideal anytime classic.

The sale comes complete with plenty of maintenance records, mileage logs, and receipts. It even has a storage rack for the hardtop. It's hard not to get excited about complete timeless elegance for less than the price of just about any new convertible out there. But you're not the only one who sees this, so it won't stay long in our showroom. Call now!
