1987 Mercedes-Benz 560SL R107 Roadster

Up for sale is very nicely kept, 1987 Mercedes-Benz 560SL. Its desirable and rare Diamond

Blue Metallic Paint shines beautifully and Powerful V8 engine purrs and runs strong as ever.

Now that the W113 230/250/280SL's have become priced out of sight, here comes the

560SL - THE Next Collectible SL Roadster!

As recently as the mid 1990's, and early 2000’s you could pick up a nice condition 1971

280SL Pagoda Roadster for around $20,000. Almost in the blink of an eye, that's what a basket

case now goes for - with good condition examples regularly selling north of $75k and more. There

are good reasons for this: scarcity, limited production, and a demographic generational shift that

shows the 50's and 60's muscle car prices have peaked and the next generation is after the

desirable cars they remember - which mostly came from Germany in the 70's, 80's and early


In the 560SL, Mercedes got it all just right, offering essentially bullet-proof reliability, satisfying

power, and aggressive good looks. The 560SL combined all that Mercedes learned about the V-8 R107

chassis cars into a cultural icon that quietly and confidently told the world its occupants had "arrived."

The R107 chassis was one of the longest running production bodies in the Diamler-Benz AG's

line, and R107s are extremely well built and collectable. It is also the first V8 powered two-seater to be

built at the Stuttgart, Germany factory.


It’s elegant and rare Diamond Blue Metallic (color code #355 diamintblau) paint has a beautiful shine

and luster!! Chrome is in great condition, it is complete and new looking, and this beautiful roadster is a

head turner and conversation piece everywhere it goes.

This Mercedes is very solid and rust free (please see pictures!!!). Body is in wonderful condition and it

is straight as an arrow! All doors, hood, and trunk are operating with ease, and everything lines up

properly. It was never in an accident, and It has been always garaged, pampered and kept away from

rain and bad weather, and it truly shows!!

Factory VIN number stamping on the front radiator support shows originality of this car. Along with the

Factory VIN number stamping, every body panel (doors, hood, trunk) has a original VIN number sticker

as well! There is not a lot of 560SL’s out there in this solid and nicely kept and preserved condition!!

It is equipped with both soft top, and the hard top! Navy Blue Soft top is in excellent condition, plastic

windows are nice and clear, and it is very easy to operate. Original Hard top is also in excellent

condition, including all the glass, and the headliner which is clean, and rips and tears free!!

Another sign of originality of this beautiful car is stamping mark on the Hard Top (58404) which reflects

the last 5 digits of the vehicles VIN number!!!

All 4 tires are Brand New and they make this Roadster float on the road!!

It also comes with rare and very desirable one piece European headlights that just add to the beauty

and elegance of this SL!


Dark Blue interior is in great condition! Carpet is clean, in great shape, as well as the door panels.

Seats are in excellent condition, rips and tears free, and very supportive and comfortable.

This Mercedes comes with power windows, and they are working as they should!

kept, and how beautiful it is.

-Engine & Transmission

Powerful 5.6 Liter V8 Engine starts with ease, and it is strong and powerful as ever with only 105,800

miles on the odometer (only about 3,700 miles per year!!). It has no problems reaching 80MPH+ and its

real blast to drive!!!

Right before we acquired this beautiful SL, previous owner had a lot of maintenance work performed

on this car, including full tune up, as well as the radiator, water pump, subframe and motor mounts


Automatic Transmission shifts effortlessly through every gear, and it makes this SL absolute joy to drive

and cruise in! This German Roadster handles great at the high speeds, and it is very comfortable.

Air Condition works as it should, and this car is ready for some topless fun!!!! There is nothing better

than driving down the road with the top down, and the wind in your hair in your classic SL!!! Spring is here,

and it makes it for PERFECT convertible time weather!
