1989 MB 560 SL Convertible and Hardtop
100,048 Miles (Just turned 100k yesterday; still a baby)
If you are looking for a 560 SL, you NEED to consider this one.
The car is rust-free. I would rate the paint and body at 9 out of 10. The interior is very close to being a 10 out of 10. The carpet is new. Seat leather is new. New horsehair pads. Armrest leather new. New headrest leather. I have the leather to replace the door panels. Original door panels are vinyl, so this is an upgrade. Also have leather for the door pockets. And leather for the convertible boot (original was leather). I have new gaskets/seals for the car that need to be installed (windows, roof, etc). And some carpet to replace a few small areas. I'd estimate about $800 to $1300 in labor, and you will have a car with an interior that is sharper than the original. Brand new Michelin MX tires. Wheels and tires are upgraded to 16 inches (stock was 15"). (Photos are before replacing wheels and tires this summer.)
In the 5 years I've owned the car the following major items have been done: A/C rebuild. Transmission rebuild. Both Fuel pumps replaced. Cabin blower motor replaced. New Muffler and exhaust pipe from front. This summer I replaced wires, plugs, rotor. Motor oil changed every 3 to 4k with Full Synthetic.
Convertible top canvas is in excellent condition.
I also have the MB cover for storage. The car is not driven in winter. Good clean clear title is in my posession and name.
Is the car perfect? No, otherwise I'd list it at $15k. But everything is here to have a super nice 560SL. It is already a head turner. I'm sorry I could not afford to finish the interior, but the materials are here. FOR $9400.
I have about 100 photos if you would like. I want you to see exactly what I have here in way of the car, leather, parts, seals, etc. Look at my Ebay account ('seebargaindave' ; I'm not a high volume guy, but I've been around quite a long time and have a 100% rating.)
IF you are looking for a 560SL, you really need to look at this car. I NEED to sell this car. You NEED this car.
This is a great opportunity. Leather and carpeting are from GAHH. Quality. Over $5,000 spent on interior. Car is in Chesterton, IN; 45 minutes southeast of downtown Chicago.
