1987 Mercedes-Benz 560SL
Ok .This is not the Dr. Pepper that you are probably thinking about but this car has been owned by a Dr. Pepper that was a ER Trauma Surgeon in the Chicago area since 1988. This was his daily driver so, yes it has some bumps and bruises, some stains and scratches and could use an overall cosmetic restoration if you so desire .Or, buy the cheapest 560 SL on the market and just drive the wheels off of it. This thing drives and rides very nice with no smoke or leaks and has no dummy lights on the dash. These 560's were so much more trouble free than some of the earlier cars with some problematic fuel management systems. Although not a complete set of service records, the maintenance book was kept up to date for a while through M-B dealers and it also has a clean carfax, owners manuals and all keys from the factory. The soft top is completely shot its there but not usable in its current condition. The hard-top goes on and off as it should and is in nice condition. The seats are faded and the carpets are stained. Honestly, after putting some miles on this 560, I would hesitate to drive it as is. The brakes feel good, the driveline feels solid but the tires should probably be switched out before any long distance drives.
