Please call Greg directly at 513-200-9226 with any questions about this car.

Seven Hills Motorcars is very proud to offer this beautiful 1987 Mercedes Benz 560SL in excellent condition with only 73,130 original miles. It looks spectacular, runs great, and is an awesome driver. 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 are exceptionally difficult to find and draw a huge premium in the current market. 73,000 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, 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 026466." 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 02 985476." We have checked the transmission and confirmed that same number is 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, 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.

Exterior

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 wheels are in nice shape with no curb rash. 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. This Mercedes has absolutely no issues at all. 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 Royal Blue (272) interior of the 560SL looks absolutely fantastic. The seats are in excellent condition with no tears, rips, or signs of wear. The seat is not overly worn at all in the typical spot 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 very high end and very expensive stereo system with a more modern radio that has Bluetooth connectivity and auxiliary inputs. The entire installation is very professional and the workmanship if top notch. Please note that the original power antenna still works properly. 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.

Interiors in convertible cars are not known to wear well over time. The excellent condition of this interior is a huge testament to the meticulous care and attention this Mercedes has received throughout its life and another great verification of the low original mileage.

Mechanical

This 560SL appears to be in great mechanical condition and it is ready to be enjoyed. The engine starts right away every time, runs well, and idles smooth. 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 as they should. 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 is cold; the blower works out of the defroster vents. All of the gauges work. Even the clock keeps time and the trunk light works. This Mercedes has lots of power with the 5.6 liter V8 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 1987 560SL is in excellent condition and is a true bargain at our asking price. This car is a premium example; it is very original with all original body panels with the original VIN stickers and a clean AutoCheck history with no accidents. The market for the R107 body style SL Mercedes is very strong right now, particularly for the 560SL's and this would be a great example to own. 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.
