I check about every ten days and there is nearly always a 107 listed in Birmingham. Two today!

BaT - 800-Mile 1988 Mercedes-Benz 560SL

https://bringatrailer.com/listing/19...l_notification

This 1988 Mercedes-Benz 560SL shows just under 800 miles and was recently purchased by the seller, reportedly from the daughter of its original owner. The car is said to have been parked in a warehouse shortly after initial purchase, and work following its acquisition by the seller included replacement of the tires, battery, fuel pumps, and filters as well as an oil change, transmission service, and more. The car is finished in Anthracite Grey Metallic over Palomino leather, and power is from a 5.5-liter V8 paired with a four-speed automatic transmission. Equipment includes a color-matched removable hardtop as well as a Becker Grand Prix stereo, a power antenna, and automatic climate control. This R107 is offered with a data plate, its original purchase contract, previous registration and insurance cards, factory literature, recent service records, a clean Carfax report, and a clean Ohio title in the seller’s name.

Dang. 800 Miles!

wow, thanks for posting this, a genuine barn find. Just wondering about a car with 760 miles that needed new tires, an R134 freon conversion, a resealed fuel tank, a new antenna mast, new interior light bulb replacements, and other goodies mentioned. Already bid over $45 grand with a week left. LOL.

Up to $55K now. Going to guess ends up in the $70K-$80K range.

No idea what more would be needed after sitting basically since new but not like anyone is going to buy it to drive it.

I'm with Hirnbeiss. May not be MB's museum but not much more you could do with it other than display. Just an amazing find none the less.

$63k and still counting. Darn, I'd love to have one like this, put her in the living room instead of TV and just stare longingly... 🙂

WOW ...SOLD FOR $134,000 ON 8/14/19

My guess is either someone with way too much $$ or Mercedes bought it for their classic collection.

But now we know what a "new" 560SL sells for!
