For sale is a 1986 Mercedes-Benz 560SL Roadster with 56k original miles, I would like to get $17,500 for it. It is silver/grey paint with a matching removable hard top and a black soft top. This car is in excellent condition, especially considering that it is all original except for the radio head unit, which has been updated. The car runs and drives great. It has worked well as a daily driver for the last year and will continue to be reliable.
Some features include:
Leather steering wheel
Both hard and soft top
Hard top wheeled stand and cover
Removable rear seat
New rear brakes
New fuel distributor
New fuel injectors
New A/C system (including climate control unit)
Transmission tune up
Although the car is in excellent overall condition, there are a few imperfections which are relatively minor and detailed in photos that am happy to send. The paint on the wheels is starting to peel from the aluminum. There is a tear along a seam of the passenger seat. There are some paint chips on the top of the car, near the trunk hinge. There is also one small crack in the dashboard.
An AutoCheck report indicates that there were three previous owners. I've had a lot of fun in it, but I'm selling the car to replace it with a more fuel efficient vehicle. I'm constantly getting compliments from strangers who admire the car, and it always wins an award when I take it to car shows.
It is evident by the cleanliness of the engine bay and the undercarriage that this car has lived an easy life and has been meticulously maintained. It performs and handles beautifully. As far as I know, this car has never been in an accident (there is no evidence of an accident). The sheet metal and frame are straight and rust free.
