The Mercedes 560SL is a compact roadster stuffed with a massive 5.5 liter V8. The R107 body style was produced from 1972 to 1989. However, Mercedes only produced the 560SL starting in 1986. The 560SL sold for $48,000, almost 20% more than the price of a new Porsche 911.

Today’s Craigslist Deal
Today’s Craigslist deal comes to us from Raleigh, NC. This 1987 Mercedes 560SL is cabernet red with tan interior. The ad mentions that the car has a clean title and only 62,068 miles. It has the original hard top, which is expensive to replace. Here is a quick blurb from the owner:
Very nice shape inside and out this 30 year old 560SL still has wonderful curb appeal and is a fine example of how well built these 107 series were. This 560 comes with the original bill of sale, a matching hard top, never used soft top, new Michelin tires and cold A/C
There is some slight wear and tear in the interior but nothing major. Overall, this car looks like it is in great shape.
