One of our amazing donors recently donated a 1986 Mercedes-Benz 560SL with 174,071 miles on it. The vehicle was was donated to the U.S. Fund for UNICEF.
The iconic Mercedes-Benz 560SL is known for its simplicity and style. Weighing in at 3,700 lbs, the Mercedes-Benz 560SL came with a 5.6 liter V-8 engine with 227 horsepower and 279 ft/lb torque. The two-door roadster sat two and came with a detachable roof for those inclined to catch the breeze and the sunshine. The Mercedes-Benz 560SL was the replacement for the W113 SL-Class in 1971 before it was eventually replaced itself in 1989 by the R129 SL Class. There were a total of 237,287 Mercedes-Benz 560SL’s in production between 1971 and 1989. For this particular model there were only 49,347 vehicles produced. The original price of the 1986 Mercedes-Benz 560SL was $48,200. The Mercedes-Benz 560SL is part of the R107 chassis and it was only sold in the USA, Canada, Australia and Japan.
The 560SL was an iconic car and an important part of the Mercedes-Benz legacy. We were excited to receive this generous donation to U.S. Fund for UNICEF.
