vehicle description

 

 

Seven Hills Motorcars is very proud to offer this beautiful 1986 Mercedes 560SL is excellent condition. The market on the 560SL is absolutely red hot right now and this example is priced to sell. Low mileage and original examples of the R107 Mercedes SL exceptionally difficult to find and draw a huge premium in the current market. One hundred thousand miles on Mercedes from this era is low. These car were built like tanks and virtually run forever if properly maintained. The low original mileage is verified not only by the condition of the car, but also the clear Ohio title, pictured below, showing the mileage as "Actual."

This 560SL looks outstanding, runs great, and is and awesome driver. It 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. The car comes with the original owners manual, original window sticker, convertible top wrench, spare tire and rim, and jack, which are all pictured below. This Mercedes is finished in the beautiful and highly desirable color combination of Black Pearl Metallic (199) over Grey Leather interior (278). This is the correct and original color scheme as verified by the codes on the data tag and window sticker, both pictured below. Please peruse all of the photos, video, and other information below to get a true sense of clean and nice this 560SL really is.

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.

Exterior

The Black Pearl Metallic 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 convertible soft-top is in wonderful condition and looks virtually brand new. The rear windows in the soft-top are perfectly clean with no scratches, yellowing, or fogginess. The wheels have no curb rash, but do have some minor pitting. The Michelin tires have plenty of 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 stone chip touch ups, spots, dings and other very small blemishes around the car with specific photos below and some 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.

 

Interior

The Grey Leather interior of the 560SL looks fantastic. The seats are in excellent condition with no split seams and look just in person as they do in the photos. The seat just shows some typical wear are on the driver's bolster where the driver gets in and out. Please note that these appear to be the original seats and skins, not some cheap aftermarket covers or replacements. The carpet looks nice with no rips or holes. All of the gauges faces are crisp  and clean and the lenses are clear. The dash is in good condition with no fading or sun damage, there is a couple small cracks starting to form that were too small to show up in the photos. The original door panels look great with no cracks or splits, and both door pulls are solid and in tact.  The wood trim looks nice overall with no fading. This car has never been smoked in and there is no aroma of cigarettes what so ever. The original radio is still with the car works great as does the power antenna as one can see in the video.

The excellent condition of this original interior is a huge testament to the meticulous care and attention this Mercedes has received throughout its life.


Mechanical

This 560SL appears to be in very nice mechanical condition. I have personally out more than 35 miles on this Mercedes and during that time it was totally reliable and pleasure to drive. The engine starts right away every time, idles smooth, and runs great. It is an exceptional driver that feels nice on the road and at highway speeds. In the video below one can observe the car accelerating on the highway up to about 65mph, shifting through all the gears, braking to a stoplight, and going through some curves. Please note that it runs great, there are no 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. Also, the engine bay is clean, nicely detailed, and correct as one can see from the photos.

Please note in the video that all of the warning lights work properly. They light up when the key is first turned on and then go off when the engine is started. There are no "check engine" or other warning lights that stay on. The horn works as do all the exterior lights, interior lights, indicators, wipers, power locks, power antenna, and fan. All of the gauges work with the obvious exception of the clock. The a/c works and blows cold. This Mercedes has lots of power with the 5.6 liter engine. Not enough can be said as to how much of a pleasure it is to drive this car, especially with the top down on a beautiful day.


Overall Condition

 

Overall, this 1986 560SL is in excellent condition and is a true bargain at our asking price. The market on for the R107 body style SL Mercedes is very strong right now. This Mercedes is a great value and will only appreciate over time. Someone could easily enjoy this vehicle for several years and sell it for more than the purchase price with minimal effort.

 

Thank you for looking and please do not hesitate to email or call with any questions.
