Classic Car Overview

Owning a Mercedes is a total quality experience, and so when you search for one on the classic market, you want it to have received the proper care and maintenance that a world-class luxury car should. This 1988 Mercedes 560SL is such a vehicle with a great presentation, loaded interior, both tops, maintenance history, and a body that retains its German precision quality. This is one of the best vehicles for someone who appreciates timeless sophistication with just a hint of flash. The factory-correct Astral Silver Metallic is understated in its elegance, but it has a shine that nicely complements the factory alloy wheels. It also helps that the body retains its crisp and creased appearance, so all of the bodylines flow uninterrupted over smooth and even panels. A proper premium vehicle also is a well-coordinated effort. Thats why the black folding top coordinates so nicely with the soft rubber trim that encircles this Benz to protect it from parking lot dings. And for true distinction, the color-match hardtop gives this a coupe-like profile. If you dont know how to properly stow these roofs, dont worry because this SL comes with the owners manual packet, including the roof literature to help you. More evidence of a careful life is seen inside. The black interior has a crisp look, and the darkness is broken up by glossy wood trim on the dash and center console. This color complements the exterior nicely, and so youll proudly enjoy this one with the top down. Youll also enjoy this classic because it comes with all the right modern luxury features. This includes desirable conveniences such as power windows, power locks, power steering, cruise control, the desirable factory Becker Grand Prix AM/FM/cassette stereo, and air conditioning. Because this was built 1988, there are also more modern features than most R107s, such as a third brake light and a drivers air bag. The 560SL came with a big 5.6-liter motor, and this fuel-injected V8 is known for its smoothness. On the road, an R107 has a fully-independent chassis that is the perfect balance of elastic comfort in a tight-handling package. This was topped off with a four-speed automatic transmission and four-wheel disc brakes for the best all-around control. In total, the Mercedes SL is in a class all of its own. It has always been hard to define its competitors because no other car combines grand touring comfort in a quick and nimble machine so perfectly. This example has preserved the heritage and has averaged less than 2,000 miles per year since new. Just because this car has not covered nearly as much ground as its contemporaries does not mean it was sitting out on maintenance. In fact, the large service history file that comes with the car will prove its worth. Of course, all you have to do is look at the condition of the engine bay and see that this one literally shines above the rest. This Mercedes is elegant and preserved luxury. So if you demand the best, dont miss this SL. Call today!!!
