This 1988 Mercedes-Benz 560SL was its manufacturer's coveted open-air flagship during its era and even now it not only retains an impressive level of originality, but also offers a level of mechanical precision few cars from its era can match. It's hard to beat the exhilarating feeling you get being out on the road with just the blue sky above you and this classic thoroughly delivers on that experience.
Just as is the case with so many movies and songs, this is a model that only gets better with time. Mercedes had long since gained traction with the American car buying public by the time the 560SL was first released, realizing that the market wanted a more substantially proportioned convertible than what they had previously offered - so they equipped their R107 line, of which this Benz is a member, with a wider and slightly longer body to provide a more comfortable cabin and better cornering. Just one glance at this '88 and you can see why Mercedes chose not to mess with the design for so long - even though it's been more than 30 years since it came out, few classics can match its timeless curb appeal. With its white exterior still dressed in its original color and looking sharp, it's just an effortlessly elegant car, yet sporty and agile at the same time. When darkening skies threaten, you'll have a couple of options for protection, including a blue cloth convertible top, as well as a color matched white accessory hardtop, which is still in good shape, but will need a minor bit of attention to seal properly.
Glance through the window and you'll see that the blue leather interior thoroughly defies the passage of time, with a pair of plush buckets in place that are free of the marked creasing you'd rightfully expect in a car of this age, bracketed by door panels that sit snugly against their frames. From all appearances, this car has been fortunate to have been treated with respect during its years of service - there's no signs of abuse or unintended mishaps inside. Up front, the dash area features factory gauges that still function as intended, and a fresh, uncracked pad over the top. The fresh appearance of the carpet suggests it was recently added not long ago - it lines the trunk as well and is as clean as can be. A Sony AM/FM/CD stereo, the only deviation from factory configuration, has been added for an enhanced audio experience.
Raise the hood and you'll find a well-maintained engine compartment, with a fuel-injected 5.6-liter V8 sitting at the center. It holds the distinction of being Mercedes' top tier engine option at the time of its release, and is still in full possession of its considerable power to make this droptop a fun ride, including just under 300 lb-ft of torque to push you back in your seat when you step into it. The powerplant pairs with a 4-speed automatic transmission whose overdrive gear provides nice low revs at highway speeds. Armed with power disc brakes at all four corners, this SL comes to a stop quickly when called on, and its broad stance, independent suspension and smooth power steering combine to make it an accomplished corner carver as it rides on a set of 15" stock Mercedes wheels that, like the rest of the car, are in impressive condition.
This 1988 Mercedes-Benz 560SL does its world-renowned manufacturer proud, and it's not often you come across a classic that's more than 30 years old and still runs this strong. Call today!

We recognize the need for complete transparency when buying/selling vehicles on eBay. That said, we did not build, modify, or have the luxury of personal ownership that would give us the advantage of knowing all unknown aspects of each vehicle. Transparency is king and we're happy to try and answer ALL questions our customers might have prior to purchasing. Additionally, we welcome and encourage independent inspections (see Inspection statement below).

FEES: A documentation fee of $199 will be added to the purchase price at the time of sale. Sale price does not include any Title, License, Registration, State or Local Taxes or Processing Fees. We recommend you familiarize yourself with your individual state's taxes, transfer, or additional fees.

AVAILABILITY: Please inquire prior to purchase to assure any advertised vehicle is not already sold. We advertise across multiple platforms where a vehicle can sell in a moment's notice. Vehicles may be sold prior to eBay listing end, and we reserve the right to end listings early or to cancel bids/offers solely at our discretion and shall not be held liable for any such cancellation.

CONTACT: Note that you may hear from us after to the sale, but if you are a winning bidder, click a Buy-It-Now, or we accept your eBay Offer, it is your responsibility to contact us within 24 hours.

INSPECTION: VERY IMPORTANT. If a buyer chooses to buy sight unseen (many of our buyers choose this option) the buyer accepts the vehicle AS-IS and understands we cannot address concerns post sale. For this reason, it's important all concerns are addressed prior to purchase. We make every effort to present accurate and reliable information, but use of this information is voluntary, and should only be deemed reliable after an independent review of its accuracy, completeness, and timeliness. It is the sole responsibility of the customer/buyer to verify the existence of options, accessories and the vehicle condition before time of sale.

PAYMENT: We require a non-refundable $500 deposit within 48 hours of winning or commitment to purchase. Full payment is required within 7 days of offer acceptance unless other arrangements are agreed to in writing. If deposit and/or full payment are not provided within said timeframe, all vehicles will be relisted and transaction will be considered void. For balance of payment we will accept bank wire transfer (preferred), cashier's check, or personal check (vehicle shipment will be delayed until check clears).We also offer vehicle financing, please inquire for details prior to making bids/offers.

SHIPPING: We have access to a network of private and commercial carriers. Most of them can deliver the vehicle to your driveway and upon your schedule. We assume no responsibility for damages or delays incurred once a vehicle is in a shipper's custody. Buyers are welcomed to trailer vehicles home and we are happy to have everything ready to see you off with your new vehicle.

DRIVE IT HOME: If you plan to buy and drive home, please keep some things in mind. Anything is possible when it comes to a vehicle, especially a classic or antique one. We recommend transporting all vehicles to your home first, then driving it locally. Get to know the vehicle and its tendencies before embarking on a long-distance trip. If you choose to drive your new vehicle home, buyer accepts all responsibility as we are unable to control what may take place once it leaves our facility.

DOCUMENTS & VEHICLE TITLE: All purchase documents are sent immediately upon purchase. To avoid delays, we recommend returning any required documents within 24 hours of receipt. Please allow up to 30 days for vehicle titles. Usually titles are available sooner, we ask for the extra time in the event there are unforeseen circumstances.

VIN VERIFICATION: We photograph the primary VIN location of every vehicle and make sure that VIN exactly matches the vehicle's current title. Buyer agrees to hold seller harmless from any disputes arising from other hidden or secondary VINs present on the vehicle as seller only verifies the primary VIN location. If needed, it is the buyer's sole responsibility to verify secondary VIN locations their specific state may inspect, prior to purchase.

MILEAGES: Occasionally our vehicles may be driven or simply moved around our facilities. Slight differences may occur so we recommend you confirm actual and current miles prior to purchase.

CONDITION: We cover the obvious and do our best to describe our vehicles in detail. Even so, please have a transparent conversation with us before purchasing. Do be aware that all pre-owned vehicles, regardless of age, mileage, or manufacturer are subject to cosmetic wear and mechanical failure. Finally, be advised that although our sales associates are here to assist you with your purchase, they are not trained or certified vehicle inspectors.
