For Trade: 88 560SL

I have a '88 560SL, Black/Palimino....want to trade for a 50-60's US Original Vintage/Classic convertible, or RestoMod...

My Car:

Super Clean, Original Paint, never been wrecked or in an accident (clean carfax); 140k miles (but...); Alsolutely no rust, body repair or flaws...only 2 very minor dings...that are hard to locate on this
black beauty/

Always garaged. Both tops are in like new condition.

Purchased in April with plans to completely restore to OEM new car condition so, I've spent/invested more that $13k in/on the car (excluding purchase price which was $11k due to its clean condition).

All of the following work has been done (since April 2011) using only Genuine, Original, New Mercedes-Benz parts..and all work has been done by certified Mercedes-Benz Technicians/Mechanics...(excluding only the wheels which were chromed by La Wheel & Tire and the new tire mounting done by Goodyear store);

Both Upper & Lower Control Arms, Ball joints & bushings
Sway Bar/Idler Arm
Front & Rear sub-frames Bushings & motor mounts, tansmission mount
Transmission overhauled
New MB/Bilstein F&R shocks
New F&R Brakes/Rotors/Brake hoses and insulated ABS brake wires
Steering Gear Box rebuilt with new seals
Power Steering unit rebuilt, with new seals
Engine Tune (compression checked ~ needs no work), new plugs, wires, fluid and filters serviced
All Fuels lines changed including fuel unit in tank
Timing Chains and tensioner(s)
New Radiator assy , thermostat and all cooling hoses
All vacuum lines
New Brake fluid reservoir
New Coolant reservoir
All 5 wheels shipped to La Wheel & Tire (California) and triple chrome plated, including chrome lugs and center caps
5 new Goodyear directional thread tires
All new hood insulation (2-pcs) and rear deck lid insulation (trunk)
New weatherstriping throughout, doors, tops, top storage cover, hood/trunk seals, door jams, etc.
New wipers (OEM MB stainless)
New rear view mirror
Professionally claybar'd and finsih restored (5-part process, $1200 spent)

All Parts combined exceeded $7700.00
All Labor combined exceeded $4500.00
Total Investment by owner 23k

If you want one of these (560SL) don't be fooled by sellers telling you that their car is "in perfect condition" as we all know what iit takes ($$$) to fix and maintain these cars correctly...

All paperwork/invoices are available...and interested parties can even speak with my Mercedes Benz dealer' mechanics/techicians who've done all the work.

Detailed photos are available to interested parties. This car was originally purchased and owned in Arizona but is now in the Houston, Texas area.
