Nicely Maintained 1988 Mercedes Benz 560SL Convertible
New to our Pleasanton showroom is this 1988 Mercedes Benz 560SL 2 Door Roadster with beautiful white exterior paint and a blue leather interior. You’ll find a factory 5.6L V-8 engine under the hood with the numbers-matching automatic transmission; from what we can see, this sensational luxury classic appears fully original throughout. It is also very nicely equipped for modern highway driving with both a hard and a soft top- it looks spectacular with 194,619 lifetime miles.
Always Garaged by Two Lifetime Bay-Area Owners
The current owner of this 1988 Mercedes Benz 560SL Roadster informs us that he purchased it from the first owner back in 1992. Both parties were local in Redwood, California so this one has been garaged and maintained in the Bay Area its entire lifetime. Additionally, we have excellent documentation on this classic that dates back decades, so there’s no guesswork involved with the overall quality. While the paint and the interior does show minimal signs of wear from frequent usage over the past 19 years, this example is shockingly clean throughout and has withstood the tests of time nicely.
In terms of performance, this 1988 Mercedes Benz 560SL Convertible starts easily and has nice acceleration once promoted. It drives like a much newer luxury roadster with tight handling and a solid overall feel at any speed. The braking is also impressive so this one likely does not need much to be enjoyed by the next owner. It is an excellent candidate for a complete restoration effort but it can certainly be enjoyed for years as-is.
Fully Original w/ Excellent Documentation and Maintenance
Overall, this 1988 Mercedes Benz 560SL Roadster is a super-impressive example that is very clean and drives like a champion. This would make a great investment for Benz collectors or simply an outstanding daily driver for someone ready to take a step up in quality. Either way, it’s almost impossible to go wrong at the current asking price.
