Classic Car Overview

1986 Mercedes-Benz 560SL $15,995

Concord, NC Artic White · 5.6L V8 · 83,596 miles
With a great color combo, precision sheetmetal, and timeless elegance, this 1986 Mercedes-Benz 560SL proves that a turnkey classic can provide the good life at an affordable price.

The 560SL is highly desirable because its an entire wish list in one car. These are elegant, powerful, comfortable, and nimble classics. The now legendary R107 model designation is iconic because it represents an era when very few companies could build a convertible without worrying about safety regulations. Mercedes built their cars so robustly that the R107 exceeded these standards, and they did it elegantly without an unsightly roll bar. It was the go-to driver for celebrities, dignitaries, and the wealthy because the sleek lines hid a full size interior, and usable trunk, that was perfect for any road trip. The factory-correct Arctic White paint has timeless desirability especially when the color still retains its quality luster, and the panels have been carefully maintained to retain their German-precision feeling. Also, this one carries the distinction of the more aerodynamic factory alloy wheels that only came on the later R107 cars.

One of the best complements to the exterior paint is the interior color. Whether people see you on sunny days with the optional blue leather, or even when the taut blue fabric top is up, both of these highlight the kind of corresponding colors that are still being utilized by the finest carmakers today. You even get the removable hardtop that is color-keyed to make this roadster look like an elegant coupe. Beyond just the perfect hues, this Mercedes is desirable because theres plenty of evidence of a pampered life. The carpets, seats, and wood grain center console basically show no signs of sun damage a true sign that this droptop has only been handled with care. The 560SL was one of the most expensive cars Mercedes offered during its reign, so the features list is quite long. It includes conveniences such as power windows, power steering, cruise control, and the original Becker AM/FM cassette stereo. There are even provisions for air conditioning, and a removable rear windscreen. Because this was built 1986, there are also more modern safety features than most R107s, such as anti-lock brakes, a third brake light, and a drivers air bag.

Under the hood is the original numbers-matching 5.6-liter V8. The 560SL was really the car to have from the R107 period because it combined a powerful motor with a reputation for bulletproof durability. But besides just averaging 2,700 miles annually, you can tell by the cleanliness of the engine bay that this has always been a cherished luxury machine. So theres nothing stopping you from hitting the road for a long weekend, and when you do, this luxury convertible strikes the perfect balance between nimble machine and all-day cruiser. Thats thanks to a specially engineered fully independent suspension, four-speed automatic transmission with overdrive, and four-wheel disc brakes. They all work in harmony to provide a true luxury experience that has been the envy of other car makers.

This timeless classic proves its worth in the full file that comes with it, which includes the full package of owners booklets and service manuals. Turnkey high society is rarely this affordable, so its time to grab the brass ring while its still within reach. Call now!!
