FS: 1986 560SL 44K Original Miles Red/Tan Mint!
This is a killer car. All original paint and body. TX car so no rust or winters. One owner, a preacher's wife. I know that sounds so stupid and corny, but I spoke to her, and she is/was in fact a preacher's wife (he passed away, hence me buying it from her).
Newish soft top (<5 years old). The paint, body, interior, hard top, undercarriage, wood, leather, dash, trim all in excellent original condition. A few minor scratches due to time, but nothing bad. I'd give it a 9+ on a 10 point scale. Service records as well.
One wheel needs refinishing due to fade, which I can do. No leaks from head gaskets, A/C is nice and cold, etc. A real mint "no stories" car. I don't think anyone's butt has ever touched the leather...sheepskins on since new to my knowledge.
I'd like to get $39,000. Ha ha ha ha. OK, OK, I'd actually like to get $23K, but I know prices are in the crapper lately. I paid $16.5K plus detail, transport, I'll refinish the wheel, etc. So I'll own it at just under $18K. I can tell you I will not sell it at a loss......the wife can drive it and be very happy. Best offer at/over my cost gets it.
Thanks for looking!
