4610 Pet Lane
This is the kind of Benz you\'re always looking for. It\'s a 1989 Mercedes-Benz 560SL that has been properly cared for by two long-term owners. So you get fuel-injected V8 power, a well-preserved style, a sophisticated color combo, and the right feeling you want on a premium grand touring convertible.
This is a factory Arctic White car, and in fact, the finish shows all the right signs of being the factory application. White is elegant, especially when the accessory hardtop is in place. We don\'t have confirmation that the odometer represents the full mileage, but there is the right level of care seen throughout. This is a two-owner car with the latest one keeping it for 20 years. We even have a receipt documenting $4k invested in maintenance over the last few years. And it\'s this kind of mindfulness that also gets you a classic with well-fitting body panels, bright bumpers, good body rubber, pliable weather-stripping, clean glass, and an all-around attractive style. This is a detail-oriented car, and you see it in items like the pinstripe. It\'s a two-tone copper and gold, which gives you a cool precious metal feeling that seems right on a well-respected Benz. Plus, the tones go well with both the brown folding top and the beige leather interior.
The canvas roof looks stylish when it\'s in place, but it disappears into its own covered compartment to leave no trace. This smooth and clean top-down style is part of the thoughtfulness you get when buying a Mercedes. Grand touring comfort means contoured bucket seats for two with an armrest and center console in-between. You also have the right comfort features like power windows, power locks, power steering, a power antenna, an upgraded AM/FM/cassette stereo, and cruise control. And a later R107 model SL means safety upgrades like a trunk-mounted brake light and a driver\'s airbag. There are details that you may want to address like newer seat covers or recharging the R134a air conditioning, but we like the option of choosing what part of the style to keep original and what readily sourced replacements to get.
The 560SL came with a 5.6-liter fuel-injected V8. These are celebrated for being the ideal powerhouse. After all, muscle cars came with this kind of displacement, but Mercedes chose to use the power to add versatility. It has the deep well or torque that feels confident getting up from a stoplight and passing on the highway. But this well-maintained motor doesn\'t growl with power, it just assuredly ticks with precision and settles into easy cruising. This kind of poised demeanor comes from the best features of the time, like a four-speed automatic transmission with overdrive, four-wheel power disc brakes, and a fully independent suspension.
The sale comes complete with the owner\'s manual and maintenance records. This is a two-owner Mercedes SL that has been given the right respect to continue the tradition of robust luxury. Call today!!!
