134957 / 1989 Mercedes-Benz 560 SL
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/leuv35u This lightly used Mercedes is a clean, 100% road-ready classic. Its subdued, Pearl Gray paint carries just the right amount of refinement worthy of a Mercedes badge, and looking at its solid flanks, there's no question it was constructed with fine workmanship. Fit and panel gaps are exactly what you would expect from a vintage car with the three-point star, and one look at the chip-free rockers reveals a finish that probably hasn't seen anything more abrasive than foul language. Overall, with what amounts to just 'break-in' miles, the body is virtually blemish-free. And, for a driven piece that's never been fully restored, this SL's appearance is simply remarkable! Lift the long hood and you'll find advanced technology that allows this SL to provide smooth and powerful acceleration which almost defies the laws of late '80s automotive physics. The silky and quiet 5.6 liter SOHC V8 delivers enough grunt to make the car feel much lighter than it actually is and, with a flick of the key, lights off instantly. Hit the road, fully pressurize the Bosch KE Jetronic fuel injectors and the mill's restrained power quickly glides right up to triple-digit speeds. The big motor accelerates well in any gear, providing plenty of torque at any given speed or time. Cosmetically, everything here looks like a well preserved time capsule, which isn't surprising given the car's meticulously kept shell. And since it was produced before the OEMs' questionable obsession with plastic engine covers, you can plainly see how well-maintained every seal, bolt and electronic component is. One squeeze of the throttle and a 4-speed automatic transmission seamlessly and steadily sends power to mild gears that quickly set you on your way. Factory power steering and well-balanced power disc brakes mix good handling with reliable, drama-free stops. And at the edge of those brakes, mirrored wheels spin 205/65R15 Michelin Primacy MXV4s. Inside, this well-mannered 560 is Teutonic luxury at its finest. Supple leather buckets are supremely comfortable, and look great in their classic Gray tint. In front of those seats, crystal clear gauges are laid out in typical Mercedes fashion of three binnacles with simple dials and lighted pointers. Below that dash, a wood-trimmed console anchors a wood-trimmed shifter on clean carpet that's protected by Ðþ{560 SLÐþ{ branded floor mats. And in front of the driver, a gray, Mercedes-branded steering wheel provides a responsive connection to the road. Luxurious and capable, this Mercedes is a substantial roadster that appears to have been exceptionally maintained throughout its entire existence. If you're looking for a great cruiser that, when it comes to power and performance, is a genuine iron fist in a silk glove, call, click or visit http://RKMotorsCharlotte.com for more information on this slick 560 drop-top!
