ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS, NEAR FLAWLESS, 1988 MERCEDES-BENZ 560 SL WITH JUST 33,425 MILES…ORIGINAL PAPERWORK INCLUDING WINDOW STICKER…SIGNAL RED WITH PALOMINO LEATHER INTERIOR…LUXURY CLASSIC READY TO SHOW AND GO!!!
One of the finest examples of an amazing luxury roadster built by Mercedes Benz that is sure to continue to rise in value and collectibility. This ultra low mileage example is in absolutely amazing condition and was extremely well maintained and recently serviced. It was a spring and summer driver for most of its life and was purchased about a year ago by a gentleman here in the Atlanta, GA area who enjoys collecting classic cars. He has enjoyed the car but is down-sizing his collection so he asked us to sell this car and several others for him. This 560SL sold for more than $67,000 when new 32 years ago and we have the original window sticker, owners manual, and warranty plate. You would be hard pressed to fine a nicer one and this one has received quite a bit of recent service work and is absolutely turn key and ready to be enjoyed.
I am also a transport broker so I can assist in getting this beauty delivered to the lucky buyer anywhere in the country and we welcome overseas buyers and can assist in getting it to the port of your choice. I will do my best to provide enough large images, a video so you can hear it running and an honest description to help you decide if this is the one that should be in your garage.
These cars should be enjoyed with the top down as often as possible but of course we do have the original matching Red hard top with a stand for storage. The convertible top was recently replaced simply because it was stored in the down position for so many years that the plastic rear window delveloped a crack. It was replaced with the correct high end German Hartz Canvas top at a cost of $1750.
Complimenting the Signal Red Exterior is a beautiful Palomio leather interior.. The leather is in outstanding condition and is a true testament to the quality that Mercedes was known for. The drivers seat which typically shows wear on these cars barely shows any wear whatsoever. Passengers seat looks close to new as do the door panels. The dash is in beautiful condition with no cracks. The woodgrain in the center console looks fantastic. All of the gauges and lights appear to be working correctly. The current owner had the original Beck Stereo refurbished along with new dash speakers and a new antenna so it is working perfectly. Matching Palomino Carpeting looks great and Mercedes floor mats finish out the interior. The air conditioning blows ice cold and was recently serviced. Power windows work great. Other than some normal fading from age, the interior is truly in immacualte condition.
The bullet proof power train under the hood of this ’88 560 SL has just 33,425 original miles on it ,which for those of you who know about this 5.6L V8, means it has basically just been broken in.. Aside from just having low mileage this 560 was also meticulously serviced by a Mercedes Specialist. The 30K mile service was perfromed and all drive belts were replaced as well as a new alternator. Tranmission fluid was flushed and changed, oil changed, new fuel filter etc. Front suspension was also completely checked out, lubricated, and found to be in top shape. This roadster glides along the highway and handles the windy roads with ease and in silence. Brakes were inspected as well as tires and everyhting was great. You should not need to do anything other then turn the key and enjoy!! Michelin tires have lots of tread and provide a quiet and smooth ride. Inside the trunk looks great and you will find the original Mercedes tool kit and jack. Orginal Spare wheel and tire look brand new. Undercarriage is rock solid and original and obviously never saw salt or rough weather.
