The flagship 560SL made its debut in 1986, replacing the 380SL. This is a powerful classic luxury convertible in very good condition. By 1988, the sticker price approached $60,000 for Mercedes-Benz muscular 560SL. This example displays factory base/clearcoat silver metallic paint and blue leather interior. The factory alloy wheels and tires are in good condition. The 5.6 litre V8 engine runs smooth and feels very powerful, paired with the 4-speed automatic transmission. This car is complete with its original books/manuals, hardtop and blue convertible soft top.
The Dallas Love Field Frontiers of Flight Museum is the fitting location for many of our photos. Be sure to visit the historic Flight Museum if you find yourself in Dallas, Texas. The exterior paint and body show very well. The doors, hood, and trunk are correctly aligned. These are well-built cars. The wheel well molding/lip is dented, shown above on this fender. The auxiliary hardtop fastens snugly into position and the paint is excellent. The original headliner is also in great shape. The blue convertible soft top was practically never used and shows very well, easily retracted into its base.
Open to doors to luxury and the late 1980s. This interior features the factory blue leather upholstery front to rear. The leather is intact throughout, showing some color wear from use. This has been a garage kept example. The blue carpeting is in good condition throughout. This interior features the factory blue leather upholstery front to rear.
