This 1989 Mercedes-Benz 560SL mixes plenty of personal touches with all the right luxury you expect from the highest echelon of Benz. That means this bold convertible gives you a luxury AC interior, plenty of fuel-injected V8 power, and even both tops to enjoy with this convertible.

This Mercedes has the instant appeal of custom touches. There's stainless trim on the lower doors that connect with the upgraded wheel arches to deliver plenty of extra shine. The grille, door handles, and rear have also been given added brightwork, so this seems like the right one for a sunny day drive. Plus, the updated 15-inch aftermarket alloys have a similar style to the wheel you get on a modern Mercedes, so it gives this one an added touch of distinction while still respecting its lineage. But even when you strip away the extra flair there's still a ton of appeal from one of the most stylish cars around that was built to be robust. You see this quality in the way the factory panels line up and the doors close with authority. After all, beneath the added flash, it's still a Benz.

The color-matched hardtop gives this a terrific coupe-like profile, and the newer (2015) tan folding roof is a timeless color against the red paint. But even with all this appeal, we know your favorite way to enjoy this 560SL is with no roof at all. So it's great to have such a good-looking interior to share with the world. Mercedes knew how to provide the ultimate luxury for two. That means nicely bolstered leather bucket seats with well-engineered head rests and an armrest in-between. The glossy wood center section houses luxury features like power windows, an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo, and your controls for cold-blowing R134a air conditioning. Plush carpeting, a tilt steering column, power steering, power locks, and plenty of storage behind the seats complete a well-done package for easy anytime enjoyment. And because this is from the final year of the R107 model SL's production, you get safety features not everyone else received, including a driver airbag, their brake lights, and anti-lock brakes.

Under the hood is an exceptionally clean presentation of the legendary Mercedes fuel-injected V8. We have a long ownership chain for this 5.6-liter unit, and so it's believed to be original to the car. The current owner has had this from 2015, and had put barely over 1k miles on it over that time. He has been quite good with the maintenance, including keeping a correct record that includes all the details, right down to new transmission gear linkage grommets, new valve rocker cover gaskets, transmission shift modulator vacuum line, and new belts. It makes for a great classic the fires up easily and runs strong. That's exactly what you want in a 560SL, because these are classics that are still terrific for the open road. The fully independent suspension, four-speed automatic transmission w/overdrive, and four-wheel disc brakes make for a great choice for your grand tour.

The sale comes complete with maintenance records and the owner's manual. This Mercedes represents added flair and great care. So don't miss your chance. Call now!
