1987 Mercedes 560SL.



1987 Mercedes 560SL.

The Doherty Collection

One of Six vehicles which we have asked to find new homes for from the same collection.

These will be offered at approximately 1:30pm ~ 2:00pm with any provisional bids gaining answers as soon as possible.

The last and finest of all the R107 models.

An example of the most powerful version of the SL was available from 1986 to 1989, although It was exclusive to the USA, Japanese and Australian markets.

The example we have here is presented in Arctic White with stunning Burgundy leather interior. Fitted hardtop is also supplied.

(We will remove the hardtop on sale day to enable viewing of the soft top)

The car left the United States in 2015 and found a new home in Ireland where she has been residing since. Shipping paperwork can be found in the vehicle's history pack.

We also have an invoice for £1685.00 from 'JRJ Custom Services' for work to include 'Conversion to meet UK compliance'.

Correspondence from HM Revenue & Customs is also supplied confirming that 'VAT & Duty has been correctly accounted for'

The current speedometer reading is 70,321 which could well be correct looking around the car and taking into account the overall condition and the paperwork supplied.

The vehicle's history folder contains the full handbook pack including the all important service booklet. This booklet has 7 service stamps, predominantly Mercedes main agents. 

There is also a large quantity of service receipts which total over £3500.

A second spare key is also with the paperwork in the office.

Sensibly guided considering some of the high asking prices of this model.

This car has been in a private collection and unused in 2017. Consequently a new MOT will have to obtained should you want to use the car in the UK.

We are open 7 days a week here at Thornton Le Dale for pre-sale viewing, although a quick phone call prior to travelling is advised.

Don't forget. We personally collect FREE of charge around 90% of all our auction vehicles. 

So, if you have a vehicle which you would like us to re-home.... just make the call. 01751 474455

Thank you
