Just joined, so I am new to the site. I recently purchased a 1988 560SL. Smoked Silver (some call it champange) with brown soft top. The car has saw little use over the last 15 years. The original owner had driven it up until 1995 and clocked 70,000 miles. The car was sold, and the next owner only put 5,000 miles on the car over the next 15 years to the present day and traded it in to a MB dealer. MB mechanics did some work on it (new brakes, mounts, belts, AC re-charge, and standard maintenance). I did notice that the driver's side power window was not operating...the dealer agreed to fix that. The dealer also agreed to a 90 day limited warranty. I believe the car to be mechanically sound, but you never really know until you drive it for a period of time...all the basic items that you look for seem to be sound. The interior is mint...pebble leather (tan). I would give the body and paint a B+ (not perfect...but, pretty close). Minor issues with the body are a hardly noticable scuff on the front left bumber rubber (I read on this forum that you may be able to use ligt sandpaper and shoe polish to take care of that...I'm a little nervous about taking sandpaper to it...but maybe I will give it a try)... and, very slight scraping (about an inch) over the back left panel. There is also a bit of paint cracking, for lack of a better description (the size of a dime..very small) on the hood..my guess is this was due to the heat of the engine...thoughts on this are welcome. Given the bumper scuff and the scrape were both on the left side...I concluded that the vehicle was side swiped...but you would have to get up there with a magnify glass to discover it. Now, to my original question...when I examined the soft top, I noticed a small hole in the corner of the plastic window...probably due to age and lack of use. The canvas itself is fine...can I just have the plastic replaced????? And is that a big deal? Also, the small body scrape...I can live with this being that 99.9% of the rest of the car is in pretty good shape...but is that something that can be fixed (my concern is with matching the paint -- current color is gorgeous).
