F/S 1986 560SL must sell
Repeat listing after one year, with lower price:
For Sale – 1986 Mercedes Benz 560SL (560-SL) dark gray automatic with both tops, 144K miles, body and drivetrain in very good condition with little/no rust. Engine replaced a year ago (from ’89 560SEC and runs strong), as well as alternator.
Rare European import model entered U.S. and converted at Houston, Texas. Has aesthetically nicer short bumpers, 500SL interior, and the battery fore, in engine compartment. Car was garaged until this last year (spent its first 20 years in Dallas, Texas); dash and console OK, but seats torn and some interior stains. Small nick in windshield; small scratches (none more than 3/4-inch) on exterior.
Selling because cannot give it proper attention in NYC. Currently has fast idle and brakes have some issues; also some contact issues, e.g., air, windows, typical for a car of this vintage. Fine car that likes the open road, but needs TLC; wish I could provide it. Engine work done by Gabe at German Car Shop in Edison, NJ (USA), where car can be seen now. This is first year of the 560 Series of the 107 body. See attached pictures.
Asking $4,500 as is; buyer responsible for shipping. Inquiries to Humberto dot Garcia at onebox dot com, or 917-750-9090.
