A Mercedes convertible has timeless elegance, but for true upper-class value, check out this 1989 Mercedes-Benz 560SL. It's a low-mileage classic with everything from a new top to suspension investments done as recent as this year. So power, beauty, and assurance is now ready for you in this classic package.
Astral Silver Metallic is the ideal factory color. After all, silver is the classic racing color of Germany, so it gives this some nice sporty appeal. But the deep tones, clearcoat shine, and subtle blue pinstripe make sure this premium Benz always looks elegant, too. The superiority of this one also comes from good care and a low-mileage life – averaging less than 1,500 miles annually. So the brightwork shines with a mirror-like glow, the rubber trim is soft to the touch, and the body panels fit with their correct precision quality. This car comes with both tops. The blue folding soft top was just replaced this year, and so it coordinates nicely with the pinstripe. Or for a coupe-like profile, the color-matched hardtop always looks distinguished. This was the final year for the R107 SLs, and so you get vintage style with some later additions from the factory, like the third brake light on the trunk and the updated set of alloy wheels.
If you like the way the blue soft top looks against the silver, then you're going to love the interior. The full blue setup has a terrific look that reminds you that low mileage also means little time to wear in the interior. Supple leather bucket seats mean you and your passenger are destined to ride in luxury and style, so this has a long list of desirable features. It includes power windows, power steering, cruise control, driver airbag, and the correct Becker Grand Prix AM/FM/cassette stereo. Plus, the air conditioning was converted to modern R134a so it keeps you cool and comfortable even with the top down.
The 560SL came with a big 5.6-liter V8 motor. With fuel-injection and an overhead camshaft, these are the standard for both proper power and smooth delivery that all other luxury two-seaters were measured. This one has even received proper maintenance throughout the years. Not only can you see it in the tidy presentation, but also we have the records to prove it. It's more than just the motor that made the 560SL the true grand touring benchmark. The fully-independent suspension has the ideal perfect balance of elastic comfort in a tight-handling package. This was topped off with a four-speed automatic transmission and four-wheel disc brakes for the best all-around control.
