In 1986, Mercedes-Benz created the final iteration of its iconic 107 line for the North American market. Power and refinement topped the list of priorities for the German manufacturer. Displacement of the front mounted V8 engine was bumped to 5549cc and updated suspension components insured a proper ride quality.
This final year 1989 560SL has been in the long term care of the current seller. Purchased from its original owner almost 20 years ago, this R107 has been used sparingly and now shows 34,125 kms or just over 21k miles. The vehicle is finished in Athracite Grey with a matching removal hardtop, a Black soft top and a Black leather interior. The seller states that the vehicle is all original paint and panels and has been kept in a garage during his entire ownership. Powered by its matching numbers 5.5L engine and mated to its original 4 speed automatic transmission, this 560SL has been meticulously cared for throughout its life. An impressive binder with documentation from new including the bill of sale accompanies the vehicle.
The cockpit of this 560SL is upholstered in Black leather with matching doors and Anthracite grey carpeting. A note from the seller mentions that slight wear can be seen on the driver's side bolster and some scratches on the rear of the passenger seat. The burl wood veneer accents the two tone dash and center console area. All accessories including the power windows, the Becker Grand Prix radio and the gauges are said to be in proper working order. Service records show the air conditioning has been serviced and converted to r134a and blows cold.
Powering this roadster is its matching numbers 5.5L V8 engine that produced 227hp and 287 trq when new. Putting power to the rear wheels is the original 4 speed automatic transmission. The seller notes that the engine runs very strong with no smoking and the shifting is crisp through all the gears. Both fuel pumps have been changed along with a recent oil and filter service.
A special note from the seller mentions that he will be gifting this Mercedes toy car display along with the sale. The vehicle is currently plated for the road with a clean Ontario title.
