A Great Grand Touring Sports Car
- Paint, Underside and Engine Compartment
The car was finished in the very attractive Artic White and it sports both a matching removable hardtop as well as a dark blue convertible top.
The frame and underside of the car appear free of all but surface rust.
The engine compartment is clean and suggests that this car has rarely encountered wet or dusty roads.
- Interior and Top
The Blue leather seats are in extremely good condition without any splits or holes. The door panels and dash pad look equally nice. Unusual for these cars, the wood dash trim looks like new.
This Mercedes has the optional 2+2 seating configuration which allows for passengers or additional storage behind the front seats.
The removable hardtop is finished in the same Artic White as the car.
The dark blue canvas convertible top (likely the original but rarely used) is canvas and is in good condition with clear rear windows.
This car has the powerful 5.6 liter V-8 engine made for the 560 series. The engine starts right up and runs smoothly.
- Transmission The 4-speed automatic transmission shifts properly and smoothly enabling an enjoyable ride around town or out into the country.
- Tires, Brakes, Luxury and Monitoring Systems
This SL has 4 Michelin 205/65R15 tires that have much of their tread remaining but should be replaced due to age, as well as a spare. In addition, the car’s trunk houses what looks to be an original tool kit.
The power ABS disc brakes on all four wheels bring the car to a rapid and safe stop.
The list of luxury/safety features includes:
- Power steering
- Power brakes
- Power locks
- Cruise control
- Power windows
- Air conditioning with climate control
- Heated seats
- 2+2 seating configuration
- Soft and hard tops
- Upgraded AM/FM radio with power antenna
There is nothing to surpass
a Mercedes for Quality
When one sees and drives this low-mileage 560 SL it becomes apparent why this series was a hit for 18 years. “Solid”, “comfortable” and “reliable” best describe this sports car. This series is set to become the next generation of Mercedes SLs that experience value appreciation, particularly a SL in this condition and popular color.
Accordingly, this 560SL car represents not just a great driving experience but likely a sound investment as well. However good the investment, the joy of driving this quality machine is what really counts.
