Final production year
Up for sale is this spectacular low mile Mercedes 560SL. 1989 was the final year and pinnacle of the R107 series, and included such standard features as ABS brakes, SRS airbag and leather seating. Always garaged, pampered and with only 17,487 miles, this SL still has an in-the-wrapper showroom look and feel. The car runs and drives as well as it looks and comes with all books and records.
Finished in "Smoke Silver Metallic", the paint is original and still looks super after 25 years, this car has obviously led a garaged life. The body is arrow straight and the paint is glass smooth. The fit and finish is first rate and of course the car has no rust issues anywhere. Tires are high quality Michelin MXV-4's with about 500 miles on them
Sighting down the sides of the car reveal zero door dings. Grill assembly and hood emblem are both like new. The car comes with a wide assortment of factory brochures and literature, plus all service records from new.
The air dams on the 560SL's were prone to damage, this one is perfect. Headlights are the original GE Halogens from new, all lenses look like new with no cracks or fading.
Taillights and trim are all excellent. Even hidden away areas like behind the gas filler door can hold up to close scrutiny.
All of the glass is in terrific shape with no scratches or hard water spotting. All of it is original, including the windshield. The windshield header still retains the plastic grommets around the pin mounts. Visors are mint with working vanity lights.
Clean trunk area with the original Pirelli P6 spare that's never been on the ground, unused tool kit and factory jacking equipment. In the mid 80's Mercedes started the practice of affixing VIN labels to body panels and bumpers, replacement pieces do not carry these labels. This car has all its labels present
The soft top is original to the car and still in great shape, the OE Wopavin branded windows are clear and pliable. Underside looks as good as the top.
The soft top cover shows a touched in scratch, if I had to fault the car I guess this is it. The storage well beneath is rust free and spotless. Folding operation and soft top fit is excellent.
This hardtop is in like new condition with the exception of 2 small rub marks from where it rested on a stand. Otherwise it has perfect paint, glass, headliner and weatherstripping. The underside of these hardtops were prone to rusting, not the case here. With the hardtop fitted, these SL's transform into airtight coupes for year round use.
The interior is pretty much a time warp back to 1989, showing no wear and no damage. The leather seats are absolutely as new.
The door panels are straight and clean, most of them develop heat warping near the top, not these. All of the cars's weatherstripping is original and still like new. The rear compartment retains its original first-aid kit in unused condition.
Steering wheel is like new with no wear. All switchgear is like new. Power windows both operate smoothly. Central locking system works correctly. The climate control works correctly including the stepped fan feature in auto mode. Clock keeps perfect time. Basically, every switch, knob and dial on this car operates correctly, including the cruise control.
No wear on the light switch, turn signal and cruise control stalks. The original Becker Grand Prix cassette radio still sounds great, the power antenna works correctly. Ashtray and lighter are unused. The burlwood trim is excellent with no cracks or sun fading.
Dashboard has zero cracks or splits.
Both the tool kit and factory supplied first aid kit are unused.
Engine bay stickers, ID plates and tags are all intact. Service is up to date
Clean and dry undercarriage with no damage, just an extremely well preserved SL. The areas with yellowing are from the factory cosmoline application. With the exception of the tires the undercarriage is just as it left Sindelfingen.
Thanks for looking!
