The Mercedes-Benz SL or ‘Sport Leicht’ nameplate is one of the German automaker’s longest-running, with continuous production since 1954 to date when the latest R232 generation goes on sale this year. The SL is their pinnacle Grand Tourer and looks fantastic cruising down Sunset Boulevard. If cruising is your thing, this third-generation R107 1989 Mercedes-Benz 560SL Roadster is just the ticket as it comes from California having only 69,200 miles. These cars were celebrity and movie icons in the Seventies and Eighties, and still, stand out on the roads today. It reportedly comes with all receipts and documentation of add-ons.
1989 was the last year of the R107 generation before the R129 took over, ceasing its 18-year production run. Looking at this lovely black 1989 Mercedes-Benz 560SL Roadster, it’s not hard to see why the car was so popular with its classic Grand Tourer lines and proportions of a long hood and substantial overhangs. Look closer and you might wonder how an American VIN numbered car comes with European-style bumpers. In fact, the American mandated bumpers at the time sported a rather chunky nature, and somewhat detracted from the graceful lines of the model so the owner of this car has spent over $10,000 on European-style bumpers and accessories to give it a cleaner look. It’s also got a set of newer AMG five-spoke wheels with a new set of tires reported. If this doesn’t gel well with you, the original American bumpers and wheels are included in the sale too. Matching the black exterior comes an equally black interior that seats two occupants with a small luggage area behind to augment the boot. Climate control is on hand to keep you comfortable regardless of the weather outside. A new Pioneer sound system has been installed. Being a later-model SL, you also get a driver airbag.
This 1989 Mercedes-Benz 560SL comes with a 5.6L V8 that puts out 227hp and 287lb-ft to the rear wheels via a Mercedes-Benz 4G-TRONIC four-speed automatic gearbox, a combo that guarantees effortless cruising without breaking a sweat. This has also received new brakes and some mechanical refurbishments too.
