Description

Released in 1971, the code R107 chassis Mercedes-Benz has endured as a status symbol for over 50 years. Richly featured, impeccably well built, and powerful, this third generation of the Sportlich-Leicht class further developed the luxury tourer concept atop the foundations laid by the previous code W113 chassis. Produced for just shy of 20 model years, the R107 both starred in films and competed in overland endurance rallies in some of the harshest environments the planet has to offer. This duality further cemented Mercedes-Benz’s status as one of the foremost manufacturers of wonderfully engineered automobiles. Beloved by millions, the third generation of the SL roadster stands as one of the true greats. As shown on the vehicle’s maintenance booklet, this wonderful example of the Mercedes-Benz 560 SL was delivered new to Kansas City, Missouri finished in Signal Red paint over a Palomino leather interior with a black soft top fabric, in addition to the Signal Red hardtop. This convertible additionally left the factory with a Becker Mexico radio, heated front seats, automatic climate control, and power mirrors. Interestingly, the rear spoiler was eliminated as an option. The Carfax indicates this Mercedes-Benz made its way to California before being imported to Canada in 2010. By this point, roughly 32,000 miles showed on the odometer. The car would eventually enter the Dare to Dream Collection one year later, and it displays 47,101 miles on the odometer at time of cataloguing. A wonderful companion for sunny, fair-weather drives, this 560 SL exhibits the Stuttgart firm’s finest virtues: exceptional build quality, a robust powerplant, and effortless style.
