Classic Car Overview

1987 Mercedes-Benz 560SL Roadster A 560 SL of 1986 can trace its ancestry back to 1954 and world championship 300 SLR sports-racing machine which swept all before it on a career that saw it retire undefeated in 1955. The 300 SL and all SLs to follow had their genesis in this immortal Silver Arrows . This 560SL is in effect 3 different 560 SLs...an open-air roadster, a convertible coupe, and with fitting the steel hardtop, a closed grand touring coupe. This beautiful car can provide the pleasures of a sporting machine, and the benefits of a Mercedes Benz. Built like a Panzer tank and the looks of a centerfold, Mercedes Benz was hitting their stride with this late 1980s SL Roadster. Exterior Bright Red covers this wonderfully straight steel paneled sportster, and only a few little faults can be seen even when looking closely at the exterior of this car. Ribbed side mounted signal lights and wrap around ribbed taillights are designed this way to be self-cleaning. A shiny grill surround with the large tri-pointed star leads the way, and a chromed bumper with black vinyl side coverings shows in front and rear. The black convertible top is showing just some minor aging and a slightly fogged rear window but it remains in nice tight condition. A hardtop in body matching Signal Red comes with this car and is like new. Forged chrome finish alloy wheels can be noted on all 4 corners. All original and all great, what else can be said?...as upon viewing this beautiful example Im speechless! Interior Deep tan covered leather upholstered bucket seats rest within an environment of exotic burl walnut veneers, and important instrumentation. We note a tear on the drivers outer bolster and just the normal wrinkling that fine leather shows with age and use. Like every Mercedes of this era we see a plethora of creature comforts like power windows, power mirrors, climate control, power top, hard top rear window defroster and cruise control. A full-size steering wheel fronts a pristine dash with nary a bit of dust on the bezels or glass fronted gauges. Plush velvety tan velour carpeting floods these two seaters floors, rear storage compartment, and trunk. Drivetrain The 5.6 Liter alloy V8 engine incorporates electronic fuel injection and is very clean with only minor dust seen! The hydraulically actuated torque converter automatic 4-speed transmission sits behind the V8 and can be used in automatic mode or be shifted manually. A 2.47 geared rear axle keeps rpms low on the long highway cruises. Undercarriage Seen is a slight patina on the chassis that draws its design from that racing heritage, the 4-wheel anti-lock power disc brakes, beautifully maintained suspension and limited slip differential, one would expect nothing else from this vintage automobile. Independent coil spring suspension provides the handling and ride on all 4 corners. Drive-Ability A very nice driver, great handling, and power to call on when needed. The 3 versions are a real plus, allowing you to use this car year-round, although its a classic so it is perfectly fine to spend some extra time in your garage. These older 560SLs are very hot right now, and my test drive proved that, although with the top down it kept me nice and cool. All functions functioning, all systems GO! Its not very often you drive a car and instantly fall in love with the quality of the ride, the envy of the sheer power, and the luxury you are surrounded with. This car is 35 years old, and with the look of it they were a well pampered stretch of years. With all my excitement and envy, I might as well have just taken it home.... but I did not, so it is yours for the taking, until I change my mind.
