1989 Model Year Mercedes Benz 560SL Roadster for sale by original owner
"The Mercedes-Benz SL-Class, the envy of all the prestige-car makers," is how Car And Driver referred to the SL series — and we wholeheartedly agree. Its roots run back to racing, with the Mercedes-Benz 300 SL, the first car to don the SL tag. As the market for personal luxury cars was booming, Mercedes offered privileged performance car enthusiasts the road-going version of their racing car, paving the way for the formidable Mercedes-Benz SL-Class series. If you're after sheer class from the 1980s, very few can rival what the 1989 Mercedes-Benz 560SL Roadster can offer. The even greater news is the fact that this specimen is for sale by its original owner, a tell-tale sign that this car received a lot of love over the decades. Originally purchased from Mercedes Indianapolis, it has just under 16,000 original miles reported on the clock and currently resides in Indiana.
This 1989 Mercedes-Benz 560SL Roadster is painted in an elegant hue of Metallic Blue Black and topped off with a black convertible top. If you prefer a more rigid roof over your head, not to worry, the hardtop with hardtop carrier is included in the sale of this car. It proudly bears the large three-point star on the front grille and the boot lid. Four round sealed-beam headlamps occupy either side of the grille while the bumper houses four fog lights. You also get a Mercedes car cover to protect it from the elements or keep dust at bay. Moving on to the interior of this 1989 Mercedes-Benz 560SL Roadster, it is trimmed in gray and provides seating for two adults. It is furnished with Mercedes-Benz carpets and features lit mirrors on each sun visor. Everything except the clock is functional in this well-preserved original interior, and the original first aid kit is included in the sale.
Popping the hood of this 1989 Mercedes-Benz 560SL Roadster reveals its 5.6L V8 engine and, on top of that (quite literally), is the recently replaced hood insulation. This powertrain was capable of churning out 227HP out of the factory and sends it via a 4-speed automatic transmission. The owner has also noted that the engine's gaskets have recently been replaced.
