The stunning 1989 Mercedes-Benz 560SL Roadster featured here is finished in the highly desirable factory color combination of Signal Red over a Palomino leather interior, folding dark brown convertible soft top and matching Signal Red removable factory hardtop. This particular example was sold new by Skyland Mercedes-Benz in North Carolina and was sparingly used by the original owner until 2002, acquiring just over 7,000 miles from new at that time. Since 2003 it has been meticulously maintained by its second owner in Southern California. Accompanying service records document at least one oil and filter service on average every two years between 2006 and 2014, with a $2,000 service performed by a marque specialist in October 2019 less than 400 miles ago! Additional documentation includes the original books, copy of the build card data, copy of the original window sticker, California license plates and the original tool kit which is still unopened in its factory plastic to this day! Simply put this is one of the best kept, lowest mileage examples we have ever brought to market and is without question one of the best examples to be found on the market today. We are proud to offer this stunning 1989 Mercedes-Benz 560SL, from the final year of production, to the most astute collector, investor or enthusiast who appreciates low mileage, and accompanying documentation.
