Mercedes-Benz 560SL w107 5.6L V8 1987

General description : CLEAN HISTORY, ACT. MILEAGE, BOTH TOPS, SUPER CLEAN, WELL CARED FOR, DRIVES GR8!

Some extra shine and extra flair add to this 1987 Mercedes-Benz 560SL's winning attitude. So while the first impression already got your attention, don't forget to see the details like the two tops, strong V8, and affordable price.
The elegant lines of the R107 model Mercedes SL seem to be made for this shade of Metallic Brown. With a more recent application, it has the kind of hard shine you want on a sturdy German machine. And the way the light rolls evenly across the whole sheetmetal lets you know that the panels still hold with the same precision they were born with. But something that was certainly added later in life are the bright fender flairs, they are the perfect addition, because they draw extra attention to the upgraded wheel package. But as nice as that is, what we really like is the pinstriping. The dual colors with the darker brown and tan do a great job, because one coordinates with the folding roof color, and the other is a preview of the interior color.
The tan really looks great against the exterior metallic brown. The seats, carpets, dashboard, and center console are quite correct and have the kind of condition that lets you know this was never left out in the sun for prolonged periods. There are plenty more great luxury features, including power windows, power steering, an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo, and air conditioning. You even get a driver airbag in this classic. And while the R107 is the perfect vehicle to keep open to the world, if you feel like buttoning it all up, there is a color-matched hardtop that also comes with the sale.
The 560SL is one of the most desirable luxury sportscars of the era because of the power under the hood. The 5.6-liter V8 was the largest displacement offered, and it was the perfect mix of durability, smoothness, and power. Plus, when mated to a four-speed automatic transmission with highway-friendly overdrive, this is the vintage Benz that's still a great weekend getaway machine. But more than just the interstates, this one has a fully independent suspension and four-wheel disc brakes to keep you looking for the backroads.
Bright, shining, and full of features, this is the kind of luxury machine that people will assume you paid a lot more to obtain. But if you're quick enough to get this deal, we'll even keep the secret from the neighbors. Call today!!!

About Mercedes-Benz
In 1886 Karl Benz built Benz Patent Motorwagen widely regarded as the first automobile. Little did he know this was to be the beginning of the world's most renown premium car manufacturer. -Mind you the venture was financed by his wife Bertha Benz.

Not too far Daimler-Motoren-Gesellschaft founded by Gottlieb Daimler and Wilhelm Maybach, started marketing their car in 1901 using now famous name:  Mercedes (Spanish for godsend), which was chosen after their distributor Emil Jellinek's daughter.

To make a long story short, Daimler merged in 1926 with Benz & Cie., becoming Daimler-Benz and adopting Mercedes-Benz as its automobile trademark

Although deemed by some conservative the truth is actually quite the opposite, Daimler-Benz history is filled with 'firsts': Honeycomb radiator, float carburetor,   four wheel brakes 1924, (although Duesenburg Model A was reported to be sporting them as early as 1922), first diesel powered passenger car in 1936, the Mercedes-Benz 260 D,  first direct fuel injection in the Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing (well not really as tiny 2-stroke Gutbrod actually had the first direct fuel injection) )  front and rear crumple zones ie. safety cell by Béla Barényi patented in 1951 and introduced in “Ponton”-models , Anti-Lock Brake system (ABS) was first offered on the W116 450SEL 6.9, first production airbags...and the list goes on.

During its 100+ years Mercedes has produced more than a fair share of iconic cars; SSKL , 710 SSK Trossi Roadster, 770K Grosser, 540K Spezial Roadster, 300SL Gullwing, w100 600 Pullman, w111 280SE 3.5 Flachkühler, w113 230SL Pagoda, w109 300 SEL 6.3, w201 2.3-16 Cosworth to name just a few.

One should not forget the famous Silver Arrows (Silberpfeile) either: W 25, W 125, w154, w165, w196 all of which were more than capable of trashing their opponents on the track.
