4610 Pet Lane
You're looking at a fine price on a high-class classic. This 1988 Mercedes-Benz 560SL not only offers timeless elegance, but also V8 power, the desirable hardtop, and some nice upgrades.
A Mercedes always looks good in sliver. After all, that was Germany's racing color. But an R107 Mercedes SL's look is about more than just power. The factory-correct Pearl Gray was given a respray later in life to uphold a nice gloss in the sunshine. Plus, we all like the look of the crisp lines that define these personal luxury machines. This well-tailored look even extends to the optional hardtop that gives this a coupe-like profile. And for those who like open-top motoring, this removes readily and you also have the complete frame ready for a folding soft top. One of the most obvious upgrades are the newer 18-inch wheels. They fit in nicely with a polish that coordinates with the silver paint, and there are even Mercedes tri-star center caps added. These fill the wheel wells nicely, and they also allow for some nice low-profile sports tires for added grip.
The gray interior also has a nice tone against the paint, and so the whole car looks thoughtfully coordinated when you're open to the world. As a true personal luxury machine, you get nice features, like two high-back bucket seats finished in a supple leather. Plus, there's a center armrest, wood trim, power windows, alarm, and an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo. There are even provisions for R134a air conditioning. These later R107 cars also came with desirable safety upgrades like anti-lock brakes, a trunk-mounted third brake light, and a driver's airbag.
The 560SL came with a big 5.6-liter V8 motor. This fuel-injected powerhouse is a true legend for offering almost endless torque, and this example is believed to be original to the car. On the road, an R107 has a fully-independent chassis that is both comfortable and sporting. The same goes for the four-speed automatic transmission the works in harmony with the versatile V8 to deliver power when you want it and comfort when it's time to cruise. The total package is finished off with power steering and four-wheel disc brakes to deliver that ideal Mercedes feeling.
When you combine a great color combo, nice upgrades, and an obtainable price, you soon see that this is the Mercedes you're going to need to hurry up and grab. Call today!!!
