Title Status --
Exterior Color Blue
Interior Color Light Gray


This 1988 Mercedes-Benz 560SL is a well-respected two-owner southern car. It delivers all the right features like both roofs, a supple leather interior, fuel-injected V8 power, and an overall prowess that ensures this remains a symbol of rolling opulence.

The factory-correct blue is timelessly attractive. There was even a professional respray around the time the second owner acquired the car in 2007. With this level of time and mileage, the finish is no longer perfect, but it retains the right premium gloss and style to look sophisticated at every intersection. And that\'s how you should view this car. It has spent its time thus far being responsibly driven, and we have a long maintenance file proving a history of being professionally maintained. So your motivation for owning this car is because you\'d also like to enjoy the drive without getting nervous about rainy days and pebbles in the road. It\'s so you arrive everywhere looking calm, cool, and distinct. These R107 Benzs know how to show off a premium style with well-crafted panels, clean lines, and little details, like the full-length pinstripe.

The dark blue folding top gives this a truly European sense of style, and the color-matched hardtop has a coupe-like fit. But for real distinction, you\'ll drive this with no roof at all. The gray pinstripe of the exterior provides a nice preview of the full gray interior. Good-looking wood trim, plush carpeting, and a smooth dash make this quite inviting. It even appears that the leather upholstery was refreshed later in life. And the tidy trunk shows off plenty of space for more than just your weekend bags. There\'s also a long list of features, including power windows, cruise control, power locks, power mirrors, and an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo.

The 560 SL is a proper grand touring machine thanks to what\'s under the hood. The 5.6-liter fuel-injected V8 has the right kind of torque to pull away with authority every time, and it was built with cruising the high-speed autobahns in mind. In fact, you can really enjoy this one at speed thanks to the solid feeling that comes from this legendary over-built convertible. It has a fully independent suspension, power steering, four-wheel disc brakes, and a four-speed automatic transmission with overdrive. So that\'s an ideal recipe no matter if you want to get around town or take the back roads on a weekend getaway.

The sale comes complete with the owner\'s manual packet and maintenance records. There are details you may improve on this SL, like restoring the air conditioning or servicing the top for easier operation. It\'s all part of a nice lineage where you know they built these cars with a sturdy hand and components will be easy to source for generations to come. And overall, there is quite a nice appeal here about a car under long-term maintenance to be a true cruiser, and a value price so that you can continue the tradition of a true driver\'s classic.
