I recently purchased a 1989 smoke silver 560sl with 28,000 miles from the original owner and glad to have found this forum. The car was owned by a Doctor who kept the car in a climate controlled garage at his winter home in Florida. As the car had the original tires, I had the tires replaced with new Michelin tires. In addition,I had the timing chain replaced as well as the valve guides along with new belts after reading some of the other threads.

The car has the tool bag still in the original sealed plastic wrapping and the convertible top has only been up twice in its’ life.

Living in Fort Lauderdale, I look forward to attending some of the Mercedes functions and learning more about the 107s.

Regards,

Paul Cissell

Thanks, John for the welcome. Attached are some pictures. Have to upload one at a time as I am having trouble uploading multiple images at once from the IPad. Will upload several more.
