Classic Car Overview

Huge price cut! This is an impeccable two-owner 1987 Mercedes-Benz 560SL with documented 25,747 original miles. Its color combination is one of the most desirable. The 2nd owner bought it sometime before the first factory service (7,500 miles). Its been garaged under an expensive cover in a San Mateo, California, periodically driven to keep fluids circulating. The 22,500 factory service was not signed for, but little doubt it was completed. A Mercedes specialist will do that service and sign the book if necessary. This SL is totally original except for the European head light upgrade.In 1986, Mercedes-Benz shipped its most powerful SL of the decade to the U.S. in the 560SL. The car was also the heaviest of the 1971-89 R107 SLs that Mercedes produced, but the new 5.5-liter V-8 engines 227 hp did a fine job of mitigating that fact. Top speed was much improved (from 110 mph in the 380SL to 130 mph), and the car was quicker from a standstill to 60 mph by about 4 full seconds. The engine was much torquier, too, which greatly improved the cars dynamics. Likewise, the car received a new rear suspension and a limited-slip differential to better handle the added torque and power. Mercedes-Benz also added anti-lock brakes, leather upholstery, an alarm system, and an air bag, all of which better suited the cars $48,000 price tag. The 560SL sold well with average annual sales exceeding 12,000 units, which outpaced the 450SL and 380SL. Nonetheless, Mercedes retired the R107 chassis in 1990, introducing the first all-new SL in 18 years. Today, many enthusiasts gravitate towards the 560SL as it retains some of the original lines of the pagoda SLs while carrying with it all of the R107s advances. It remains a popular choice for those enthusiasts who value verve and build quality. In the past two months a 5k-mile 1988 560SL sold at auction for $137,560. We are proud to offer at $69,900 this investment-grade Mercedes-Benz 560 SL roadster to the most demanding collector, investor, or enthusiast who appreciates its low miles and superior condition. The car is located in our display warehouse in Lockeford close Lodi, a wine region located in the Central Valley wine region of California.
