This 1986 Mercedes-Benz 560SL is finished in Nautical Blue Metallic over Blue leather and power is provided by a 5.5-liter V8 paired with a four-speed automatic transmission with a limited-slip differential. Features include a replacement black soft top, a removable hardtop, fog lights, a Becker cassette stereo, electric windows, central locking, and automatic climate control. The car was purchased by its current owner in 2012 and has reportedly stayed in Texas since new. Extensive servicing since 2021 included a reseal of the transmission, new Bilstein shocks, an oil service and replacement of the timing chain, radiator, thermostat, fan clutch, engine mounts, valve-cover gaskets, crankshaft and rear-main seals, and fuel tank and pump as well as the tie-rod assemblies and the brake master cylinder, pads, and rotors. Now showing 66k miles, this R107 is now offered on dealer consignment with a tool kit, a clean Carfax report, and a clean Texas title.
The car is finished in Nautical Blue Metallic (929) and underwent a full body repaint in its factory color in 2018. A paint-matched removable hardtop will accompany the car along with a black soft top. Both the hardtop seals and soft top were replaced within the last 2 years. Additional exterior features include fog lights, a power antenna, and chrome-accented bumpers and trim. The seller reports blemished paint on the rear license-plate cove.
Factory chrome 15″ eight-hole alloy wheels are mounted with 205/65 Michelin Primacy MXV4 tires with older date codes. The car was factory-equipped with power steering, fully independent suspension, and power-assisted four-wheel disc brakes. Bilstein shocks have been fitted, and the drag link and tie-rod assemblies are said to have been replaced since 2021 along with the braking system’s master cylinder, right-rear caliper, and pads and rotors. A scrape on the right-front rim is visible in the gallery.
The interior is upholstered in Blue leather (272) and shows matching blue carpets, door cards, and dashboard. Interior appointments include a Becker Grand Prix AM/FM/cassette stereo, electric windows, central locking, and automatic climate control. The seller reports the door latches were recently replaced and a blemish on the passenger seat cushion, along with a tear and worn upholstery on the driver’s seat outer bolster is visible. Original burl wood trim accents the center console with cracks shown around the window switches.
The four-spoke leather-wrapped steering wheel frames VDO instrumentation consisting of a 170-mph speedometer, a 7k-rpm tachometer, a clock, and gauges for coolant temperature, oil pressure, fuel economy, and fuel level. The six-digit odometer shows just over 66k miles.
The 5.5-liter V8 was factory rated at 227 horsepower and 279 lb-ft of torque when new. Power is sent to the rear wheels via a four-speed automatic transmission with a limited-slip differential, and underbody photos are viewable in the gallery. Within the last two years, the following servicing items have been performed:
