This is a magnificent condition 560 SL finished in White with navy blue leather interior. This is a regularly maintained Florida example. All services in the last few years have only been by authorized Mercedes Benz service agents. She is simply stunning and is without doubt a 9-out-of-10 driver car overall. The body and paint is primarily original and in virtually perfect condition with only minor little marks here and there that are not noticeable and only mentioned out of clear disclosure. The interior of the car is stunning. Finished in navy blue leather, the seats, door panels, carpets are excellent. None of the “drying out” and stiffness in the leather that is often seen. The wood is original and in very good condition. Feature and functions in the car work well – gauges, instruments, radio, lights (inside and out) and comforts. The antennae works but is not retracting completely. It will be changed as part of the sale. The heater blows hot and the A/C ice cold. Mechanically the car is excellent. Don’t let the higher miles scare you; a very well maintained car by enthusiast owners, it drives tight and firm. Over $6,000 in Mercedes Benz maintenance has been expended in the last few years. Not because of “major issues” but items attended to without compromise to simply to keep the car in top shape. The car has none of the “rattles” and “looseness” quite normally seen on SLs. This one, you can drive it down the roughest of roads and it feels tight as a drum. It brakes true and sure and accelerates very strong and hard. The car comes with its original hard-top and the dark blue soft top is new so in perfect condition with clear plastic and no wear and tear to any of the canvas section. The car also has its original spare (right down to the factory mounted wheel balancing weights) and tools.
