1986 Mercedes-Benz 560SL Roadster
1986 Mercedes Benz 560SL Roadster
“Sport Leicht” or Lightweight Sport refers car capable of driving at high speed for long periods of time. 1986 was the era of Mercedes-Benz over engineering the vehicles they built, and this car is no exception.
Seen here is an original version of the first year the 560SL was available. Consigner states that repairs to the original have been made, however the car remains true to original, and has been well maintained with records available. This is a 2-owner car.
Mercedes Metallic Gray is seen on the exterior and presents in fair condition. Some chips out of the hood, and a scratching throughout is noted. The hardtop is attached, and the convertible top which was replaced with a new black top is installed and works flawlessly. All chrome and bright work, as well as badging is well preserved. A rust section is seen on the left front quarter panel, near the rocker. Some fading of plastic parts is noted, and overall this car is in fair to good condition.
Gray Leather covers the two front buckets, as well as the door panels. These surfaces are presenting in good clean condition, and slight wear is seen. Complimentary carpeting in gray shows areas of staining and a few soiled areas in the cockpit, and the back of the bucket storage area. A burl covered center console houses the automatic shifter, power window switches, heating and air conditioning, and a Becker AM/FM Radio and Cassette player. The gray vinyl headliner is tight and tear or blemish free. The steering wheel and dash covered in various materials in black, burl, and gray are in good condition.
A Bosch fuel injected 5.5 Liter V8 is seen in the engine bay. A single overhead camshaft configuration driven by a duplex chain, enables the engine to produce 227hp. Coupled with a 4-speed automatic transmission, this car will head down the road effortlessly, and efficiently.
Plenty of clean, undercoated rust-free surfaces under here can be seen. Double wishbones, coil springs, additional rubber springs, and a stabilizing bar in front, and a diagonal swing axle, coil springs, and a stabilizing bar in back, this car handles well on a curvy road.
For the Mercedes SL enthusiast that is looking for a reliable car built like a German Panzer, and has performance, this is your car to put you behind the wheel of a powerful 2-seater/touring machine. Auf Wiedersehen.
