1989 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class
This 1989 Mercedes-Benz 560SL is the one for true collectors. You are reading this mileage correctly, because this one was basically only driven for the last few decades to get it registered and then go back into its cocoon. That's why this is truly a once in a lifetime opportunity.
This 560SL is from the final year for the now legendary R107 model designation. So if you were going to choose one to be a time capsule, this is it. The Signal Red paint looks showroom fresh, because it practically is! After all, if all you did was drive from our showroom to Bowling Green to say hi to the Corvettes once a year, this Mercedes would have more miles on it than it does right now. The bumpers shine like mirrors; the badging is bright and complete; and the black rubber trim is still so dark and pliable that you will feel like you're picking this car up rand new from Mercedes today. And don't forget to pay attention to the wheels. Not only have they never seen a curb, buy also they are still wearing their factory Pirelli tires. So this is the perfect vehicle to take home every survivor award or showcase in a museum (but we won't blame you if you want to drive this classic, too!)
Inside, the time capsule feeling continues. After all, with such low mileage, there wasn't even time to put a crease I the leather driver's seat. Remember, you've spent more time out in the sunshine than this convertible. So, the wood is still lacquer smooth; the carpets have a plush feeling that would make some modern cars jealous; and the dash is complete and soft. This even still carries it's the first air kit a piece usually lost over the decades. All the luxury and features the 560SL is known for are in place and working perfectly, including the automatic climate control, power windows, power locks, and cruise control. The original Becker AM/FM/cassette stereo is still in place, and the sale even comes with the original introductory audio tape. When it's time to keep this time capsule interior protected, you have the choice between a tasteful folding brown soft top, or a color-matched hardtop that gives this SL the profile of a coupe. And because you also have all the operating manuals, you have the tools to properly store both to continue this car's showroom condition.
When you look under the hood, you realize the level of preservation could serve as a guide to restorers. After all, it looks like every one of the factory decals are in place. Even when you check out the undercarriage photos, everything has hardly been used, so you can still even see the factory sticker on the muffler. But if you do decide to put some serious miles on this SL, you will be rewarded with one of the best grand touring experiences around. The 5.6-liter V8 has massive amounts of torque to pull away from stoplights with authority, and there's plenty of power left to approach triple-digit speeds. Plus, the four-speed automatic transmission snaps through the gears in spirited driving, and eases into overdrive comfort at a moment's notice. Add in a power steering, ABS, four-wheel disc brakes, and a well-balanced independent suspension setup, and this is a great anytime machine.
You'll be amazed at all the original pieces that come with this sale. Not only do you get the major items like the original window sticker and the full owner's manual packet, but also the little details, like the factory key holders still wrapped in original plastic. So if you're looking for a museum piece, or want an R107 where you can be the first to take it past 3,500 miles, this is a special opportunity that likely will never come around again. Call today!!!
