ONLY 86K MILES, SERVICE RECORDS, 5.5L V8, BEAUTIFUL RED ON TAN 560SL!

HIGHLIGHTS: Beautifully maintained, desirable 560SL in beautiful red paint on tan interior! This iconic piece of German engineering is in fantastic shape showing proof of excellent care. It even has service records and NC inspection receipts going back as far as 20 years!

BODY OVERVIEW: The body on this 560SL is clean and straight, as one would expect for a well-maintained car of this caliber. While it shows some minor signs of use here and there, this car looks to have been meticulously taken care of all of its life. All emblems are in place and have a brilliant shine! The body on this car is in beautiful condition, and must be seen in person to be fully appreciated.

PAINT CONDITION OVERVIEW: This 560SL looks to be wearing its original red paint, which is an absolutely classic color on this car. What better color choice for an SL than red? The paint is in good condition with a bright shine!

INTERIOR CONDITION OVERVIEW: Much like the exterior of this car, the interior is in remarkable condition for the age of the vehicle. While some areas show signs of age, the interior is in great condition! Even the dashboard, which is an area prone to cracking on these cars, is in great shape save for a very small crack near the defrost vent. The sun visors are showing minor sun damage, but nothing out of the ordinary for a 30+ year old convertible! The A/C is cold, and the radio and other electric items function as expected.

MECHANICAL OVERVIEW: Under the hood is what makes the 560SL one of the most desirable SL models ever produced: the 5.5L V8! The engine in this car purrs like any good Mercedes-Benz should, and provides more than adequate power for a car this size. It feels very solid to drive, and handles like only a German touring car can. This car fires right up, and is a blast to drive! While it may not have the instant power of a supercharged Mustang or Camaro, there's not a single moment behind the wheel of this 560SL that you forget you're driving a powerful and sturdy vehicle.

WHAT YOU'LL LOVE ABOUT THIS CAR: The classic color combination, and fashionable classic Mercedes look!

WHAT YOU MIGHT HATE ABOUT THIS CAR: Maintenance can be pricey on these cars, so if you're looking for something to tinker on in the garage on the weekends, this probably isn't it.

DOES IT NEED ANYTHING? The heat doesn't get very hot, but beyond that this car is ready to go!

Dealership is not responsible for any errors, omissions, or inaccuracies contained in information provided by third parties. The majority of these vehicles are considered classics or antiques, meaning they are older vehicles with sometimes dated automotive technology. We are not an expert in the construction, engineering, finishes, materials or components of these vehicles. Our employees are a team of talented individuals with a history in the classic car industry. We perform an extensive visual inspections on all vehicles we represent, but we do not disassemble vehicles or components for inspection purposes and therefore it is always possible there is hidden damage that is not readily apparent.

Dealership assumes no responsibility for any repairs needed to the vehicle and it's the buyers sole responsibility for any repairs that might be needed.

If marked "Numbers Matching" or "Original Mileage", the consignor(current owner) states this vehicle as such. Given how easy it is to create a “clone” or “tribute”, we cannot guarantee the authenticity of any and all claims. Customer is encouraged to verify this information on their own, prior to purchase.

We can assist you in delivery through our network of private and commercial carriers. Most of which can deliver the vehicle to your driveway. We assume no responsibility for damages or delays incurred once a vehicle is in a shipper's custody.

A dealer documentation fee of $250 will be added to the purchase price at the time of sale.
