The next-generation 230/250/280SL in 1963 brought Mercedes' sports car down to Earth, replacing both the incredible 300SL and four-cylinder 190SL. For the next SL, Mercedes started with the chassis of the mid-size "W114/115" model and added the motors from the large "W116" S-Class. The result was a luxurious V8 Convertible that ended up being the longest passenger car series ever produced by Mercedes to date. Despite its age, the final iteration, the 560SL, remained a prized automotive status symbol and an iconic part of the brand's lineup, until it was finally replaced by the all-new fourth-generation SL in 1990. THE MOTORCAR OFFERED After being assembled in Germany, this Mercedes traveled to the United States and into the hands of Peggy Schmidt, who purchased the car in March of 1987 at a dealership in Pennsylvania. The vehicle was optioned with a handsome combination of Anthracite Grey Metallic paint, Burgundy leather interior and a black soft top. After 8 years of ownership, the roadster traded hands in 1995 to another Pennsylvania resident. At this point the car had accrued just 9,811 miles, roughly half of what it sits with today, 22,678. With so little miles on the clock, the vehicle unsurprisingly presents in good condition today. Only minimal wear is present throughout, with no tears or marks readily apparent within the interior. Outside, the same story applies, and the body lacks any major blemishes. Recently however, the soft top was replaced ensuring many more years of use will be easily attained. Still accompanying the vehicle to this day are the original window sticker, manuals, and service books. Ready to run, this timeless Mercedes roadster is ready for continued decades of topless motoring.
