Seven Hills Motorcars is very proud to offer this beautiful 1989 Mercedes Benz 560SL in excellent condition with only 99,235 original miles. It looks spectacular, runs great, and is an awesome driver. The market on the 560SL is absolutely red hot right now with 1989 being the most rare and desirable model year and this example is priced to sell. Low mileage and original examples of the R107 Mercedes SL are exceptionally difficult to find and draw a huge premium in the current market. 99,000 miles is low for a Mercedes from this era as they are built like tanks and can virtually run forever when properly maintained. The low original mileage is also verified not only by the condition of the car, but also by the clear Ohio title, pictured in this ad, showing the mileage as "Actual."
There is also a copy of the AutoCheck report in this ad. The report is totally clean, shows no accident history, and verifies the low mileage.
This Mercedes is verified as "numbers matching" meaning both the engine and the transmission in the car are the correct and original units that were installed in the factory. It is especially rare, but this 560SL has the "vehicle data card" from the Mercedes factory, which is pictured in this ad. It shows the original engine number to be "117967 12 043101." We have checked the engine and confirmed that same engine number stamped on the left side of the engine block. The vehicle data card also shows the original transmission number to be "722313 0 3165200." We have checked the transmission and confirmed that same is number stamped on the main case of the transmission and pictured. There is also a sticker on the main case of the transmission, pictured in the ad, showing the correct corresponding VIN. All of the paint, interior, and convertible top codes are also correct and match the vehicle data card and the data tag by the radiator.
This 560SL comes with both the soft-top and auxiliary hardtop. This is an excellent opportunity to own a classic Mercedes that is ready to be used and enjoyed at an unbeatable value. One could easily buy this car now and sell it for more than the purchase price in years to come. This Mercedes is finished in the absolutely beautiful and highly desirable color combination of Arctic White (147) over Royal Blue interior (272) with a Dark Blue soft-top (744). This is also the correct and original color scheme as verified by the codes on the vehicle data card. Please peruse all of the photos, video, and other information in this ad to get a true sense of clean and nice this 560SL really is.
The car comes with the books and manuals, which are pictured. Included with the car are the original owner's manual, maintenance booklet, Service and Warranty Information booklet, and the top operation book, along with two convertible top wrenches, spare tire and rim, and jack, which are all pictured below.
As a side note, this Mercedes is not a dealer auction vehicle. We hand pick each car after careful inspection. Our classics come from owners who expect their cars to go to someone that will give the vehicle the same care and attention as they did. We invite and encourage you to examine the car in person or have the car inspected. Please take the time to scrutinize each picture. We photograph each vehicle to the greatest extent so you can feel confident about your purchase. If you have a question about the 560SL, just give us a call.
The Arctic White (147) exterior is in excellent condition. As one can see in the photos, the paint has a brilliant gloss, deep shine, and smooth finish. Both doors open and shut nicely; it has that solid Mercedes touch and feels like a vault door closing. The car exhibits great body panel fit overall. The chrome and other bright-work look very nice. The wheels are in great shape with no curb rash; they really give this a car a terrific look. The Michelin tires have plenty about 95% tread left and are correctly sized 205/65R15. There are no major imperfections that have been intentionally excluded from the photos. As one would expect from a paintjob with many years on it there are some very small blemishes around that are too tiny so show up in the photos, but nothing that is really noticeable from about five or ten feet away. As one can see in the many photos of the underside, this 560SL is very clean underneath. We have also included specific photos of the rockers, lower front and rear quarter panels, and other areas on the car most prone to rust to show how nice it looks.
A sticker with this individual Mercedes VIN is present on all the body parts we checked, the hood, trunk, both doors, both front fenders, both rear fenders, and both the front and rear bumper. This is another excellent sign of originally, no accident history, and no paint work. We have seen no paint lines, over-spray or other signs of paintwork at all.
The Royal Blue (272) interior of the 560SL looks absolutely fantastic. The seats are in "like-new" condition with no tears, rips, or signs of wear. The seat is not worn at all in the typical are on the driver's bolster where the driver gets in and out. The carpet looks great with no stains, rips, or holes. All of the gauges faces are crisp and the lenses are clear. The original door panels look wonderful with no cracks or splits, and both door pulls are solid and in tact. The Dark Blue (744) convertible soft-top is in good condition. The rear windows are clear with no yellowing and are not worn in the normal spot where the windows contact the top mechanism. The dash is in excellent condition with no cracks or sun fading. The car now has a more modern radio with Bluetooth connectivity and auxiliary inputs. Please note that the original power antenna still works properly. Thankfully, the original radio is still with the car and included in the sale. This car has never been smoked in; there is no aroma of cigarettes what so ever and no burn marks. The trunk is very clean and nicely detailed with the original spare tire, and rim, jack.
The excellent condition of this interior is a huge testament to the meticulous care and attention this Mercedes has received throughout its life.
This 560SL appears to be in very nice mechanical condition and it is ready to be enjoyed. The engine starts right away every time and idles well. It is an exceptional driver that feels great on the road and at highway speeds. In the video one can observe the car accelerating on the highway up to about 70mph, shifting through all the gears, braking to a stoplight, and going through some curves. Please note that it runs great, there are no strange noises or vibrations, and the car performs quite nice overall. The brakes are responsive and do not pull to one side or the other. There is no blue smoke when starting or driving the car. It runs cool and does not overheat. The gauge shows that the engine makes great oil pressure. Also, the engine bay is clean, nicely detailed, and correct as one can see from the photos.
Please note in the video the dash warning lights; they light up when the key is first turned on and then go off when the engine is started. There are no "check engine" lights that stay on. The horn works as do the fog lights, headlights, brights, turn signals, interior lights, indicators, dash gauges lights, wipers, power locks, and fan. The a/c works and blows cold. The outside thermometer does not show the outside...for more information please contact the seller.
