The R107 series of Mercedes-Benz’ popular sunset cruiser SL model will be remembered as the definitive California Mercedes-Benz, owing to its popularity with film stars, on and off the silver screen. A Seventies or Eighties Hollywood flick or TV series wouldn’t be complete without an SL effortlessly purring by at some point. Why not catch some of that classic motoring action yourself, with this 1989 Mercedes-Benz 560SL that we have for sale? It’s got 97,100 miles and is from the last year of production before the R129 took over.
The classic lines of the R107 have aged gracefully, marking this as one of Mercedes-Benz’ most iconic Seventies designs, and they sure did do a lot of great designs through the years. This particular 1989 Mercedes-Benz 560SL showcases its pedigree with a straight black paint job, and the classic silver Mercedes-Benz alloy rims wrapped in tires reportedly in good shape. The soft top is in black and said to be in excellent condition, and you also get the hard top included in the sale. The gray leather interior is also in decent nick, save for a tear in the driver’s seat. Being a later-model R107, this car received more tech toys than earlier examples, such as the more modern four-spoked steering wheel with airbag. There’s AC, cruise control, powered windows, powered mirrors, and an aftermarket Alpine head unit with CD player for some modern tunes. It’s said that the speakers are aftermarket as well, although we’re unsure of the brand.
Mercedes-Benz offered the R107 SL with a variety of in-line six and V8 engines, and this 1989 Mercedes-Benz 560SL packs the most sizable and potent of those, albeit slightly detuned to meet North American mandatory requirements. The 5.6L V8 under the long hood of this car puts out 227hp and 287lb-ft to the rear wheels via a 4G-TRONIC four-speed automatic transmission, making for a fine boulevard cruiser with some performance to make a graceful but not obnoxious getaway. Braking is accomplished via power-assisted discs on all four wheels, and steering is also power assisted, via a recirculating ball arrangement.
