Seven Hills Motorcars is very proud to offer this low mileage 1986
Mercedes 560SL in excellent condition. The market on the 560SL is
absolutely red hot right now and this example is priced to sell.
Very low mileage and original examples of the R107 Mercedes SL
are exceptionally difficult to find and draw a huge premium in the
current market. There is copy of the Carfax report on this car
pictured below. It is totally clean, shows no accident history, and
verifies the low mileage. The low original mileage is also verified not only
by the condition of the car, but also by the clear Ohio title showing the mileage as "Actual."
This Mercedes is verified as "numbers matching" meaning the
engine in the car is the correct and original unit that was
installed in the factory. It is especially rare, but this
560SL has the "vehicle data card" from the Mercedes factory,
which is pictured below. It shows the original engine number
to be "117967 12 011036." We have checked the engine and
confirmed that same engine number stamped on the left side
of the engine block.
This 560SL looks
runs great, and is an 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. This Mercedes is
finished in the beautiful and desirable color combination of Arctic
White (147) over Navy Blue Leather interior
(272) with a dark blue soft-top (744). This is the correct and original color scheme as
verified by the codes on the data tag by the radiator,
window sticker, vehicle data card, and data plate all 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.
The car comes with service records and some stamps in the
maintenance book. Some of those maintenance stamps are
pictured below. Also included with the car are the original
owners manual, original window sticker, books, tool kit,
convertible top wrench, spare tire and rim, jack, date
plate, Becker radio booklet, radio information card, cruise
control card, climate control card, the original salesman's
business card, and miscellaneous other items from when the
car was sold new, which are all pictured below. We purchased
this 560SL from a gentleman in Lexington, KY. He purchased
the car in November of 2000 and there is an odometer
statement from that sale showing the car had 54,520 original
miles at the time. This 560SL was purchased new at Gulf
Stream Motors in West Palm Beach, FL.
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.
White 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 and the car has great
body panel fit. The wheels are in
great shape with a nice finish and no curb rash. The tires are
correctly sized 205/65R15 and show a bit of age, but have
about 90% tread left. We have seen no paint lines, overspray, or
other signs of paintwork at all. There are no major
imperfections that have been intentionally excluded from the
photos. As with any paintjob
with many years on it there are some stone chip touch ups and
other very small blemishes around the car that are too tiny so
show up in the photos, but nothing that is really noticeable
from about five feet away. As one can seen 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.
The Navy Blue Leather interior of the 560SL
looks great. The seats look just in person as they do in the
photos with no tears or rips. The seat is
not overly worn in the typical 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
with no rips, holes, or stains. All of the gauges faces are crisp and
the lenses are clear. The dash is in good condition with no
fading or sun damage. The original door panels look great
with no cracks or splits, and both door pulls are solid and
in tact. The convertible soft top is in fantastic shape and the
rear windows are clean and not yellowed or foggy. The wood trim looks nice overall with no fading; there
are some very fine hairline cracks in the wood by the window
switch, and a crack in the dash visible in the photos. 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 trunk is very clean
and nicely detailed with the original spare tire and
rim, jack, and tool kit with the correct Mercedes
wrenches. Please note that the original Mercedes
first-aid kit is complete and also still with the car.
condition of this original interior is a huge testament to the
meticulous care and attention this Mercedes has received throughout its life.
appears to be in very nice mechanical condition. 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.

works as do all the exterior lights, interior lights,
indicators, wipers, and fan. All of the gauges work and even the
clock runs. 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
