Introduced in 1971, the R107 was exclusive to the North American, Japanese, and Australian markets with specialized engines, bumper designs, headlights, and emissions management designs. The 560 SL combines classic Mercedes-Benz styling and impressive touring capabilities, fitted with a 5.6-liter V8 which was the largest engine to have been offered for the R107 generation. Finished in Signal Red over a Crème Beige interior, this two-owner 1989 example is now being offered for auction with just over 17k miles on the odometer.
This example comes finished in Signal Red with a black canvas soft top, North American specification quad headlamps, front fog lights, chrome bumpers and trim, a removable painted hardtop, and factory 15” Gullideckel alloy wheels. The seller adds that a recent service includes linkage adjustments and clip replacements for the convertible top release. Additional images are provided in the gallery along with a clean CARFAX report.
The cabin is upholstered with Cream Beige leather and features matching carpets and burl wood trim. Equipment includes power windows and door locks, cruise control, air conditioning, branded floor mats, and an original Becker Grand Prix stereo. All features and accessories are said to be working properly.
Power comes from a 5.6-liter M117 V8 engine rated at 227 HP and 279 lb.-ft of torque, sent to the rear wheels through a 4-speed automatic transmission. The 560SL was factory equipped with power steering, a fully independent suspension, and power-assisted four-wheel disc brakes as standard equipment. Recent major service includes an oil and filter change, and replacements to the front exhaust hangers, windshield washer pump, and rear differential mount. Accompanying documentation is provided in the gallery.
This sale will include a clean title, owner's manuals, sales literature, a window sticker, four keys, and the hardtop. Additionally, the original tool kit, convertible top tools, first aid kit, and spare tire will accompany the sale.
