1988 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class SL560 17K Miles Additional Info:

1988 Mercedes 560Sl Light Ivory with Palomino leather interior andbrown soft top. 17K Miles!!
Hello, this is my beautiful 1988 560SL. The car is light ivory with palomino leather and brown soft top. I would like to start off by saying this car is absolutely gorgeous, 100% collector quality. This car was purchased in 1997 from Ray Catena Mercedes Benz. The car has always been treated like a family member. It has lived its life in a garage from a non smoker family. The exterior was only hand washed carefully and waxed. The leather is nourished and conditioned 2 to 3 times a year along with the bumper ends. I have all original books and both original keys.
Exterior- The paint and body are 100% original. There has never been any paint work or accidents. The body is virtually flawless. The only thing worth mentioning is there is a tiny dimple the size of a pen tip under the hardtop lock. This is something you might need a magnifying glass to see. However, while at car shows I have noticed multiple other SL's that had a similar dimple. I assume it is hard top related. This car is like a time capsule.
Tires and Brakes- The brakes stop perfect with no noises, after all it is only 17k Miles. The tires are still the original Pirelli P6 that came with the car and they still are quiet and smooth as can be. The spare tire has never been on the car and is original as well.
Interior- All I can say is the interior is like new. The leather is perfect. There are no cracks and no rips, it has been conditioned and kept like new. The car was always entered and exited with care making sure not to lean on the bolsters. The carpet,wood and chrome are also like new. I have the new style Mercedes Oem Palomino floor mats and original floor mat that came with the car as well.
Hardtop and soft top- The hard top is perfect also hand washed and waxed as well. The headliner and glass are impeccable. The soft top and rear plastic window are perfect condition no wear shown what so ever.
Mechanical- The cars drives like it came off the showroom in 1988. The engine and transmission are all perfect as well as suspension.
Maintenance- The car has always been kept up with all fluids, the oil was changed twice a year no matter what, driven or not. I also just had some preventive maintenance done to the car as well. Spark plugs, valve cover gaskets, Transmission fluid and filter. The Brake fluid has also been changed through the years for preventive maintenance. Just because a car is not driven does not mean fluid's last forever. All fluids and parts are OEM Mercedes parts, I have even saved the boxes from the Mercedes parts.I would also like to add that I of course have the original first aid kit and full tool kit that has never been touched.
PHOTOS AND VIDEO- I have to apologize for the poor photo quality these pictures do the car no justice. I was battling the sun and clouds with a camera that was not working correctly.
Shipping and Pickup- I would be more then happy to help the new buyer in any way possible. If need be I have family in the auto shipping business so I can extend a wholesale shipping rate if need be. I would suggest enclosed shipping but that is up to the buyer. If the new buyer would like to drive the car home I can pickup at local air port or bus terminal. Before the car leaves though payment will have to be fully cleared.
I hate to sell this car as I really do love it. I have some family changes and financially it makes more sense to part with it. My love for cars has gotten the best of me, I have more then needed. This car will be an asset, only going up in value for someone. I hope the new owner will care for it the way it has been.
