Default Beautiful all original 1985 Mercedes 560SL

My cousin just recently bought and picked up a mint condition "1985 Mercedes 560 SL"
Only 52,000 original miles / One owner car / Black with Black interior
Old woman down the street has had it in her garage since 1995 not driven.

He got it home and changed the fuel pumps and filters ,Gas tank flush, New plugs and wires ,oil and filter change, new cooling system hoses, new tires and a battery.
Spent about 3 days doing a 6 step body restoration (Buffing and Polish) to renew the original flawless rust free black paint.
Interior like band new too !!

Runs great with no leaks and now driven several months trouble free
A real head turner at all the cruise nights
I just saw it for the first time yesterday and took these pics to share

Country of origin:
Germany
Produced from: 1985 to 1989
Number built: 49347
338.5 cu in..V8 with 272 hp

Beautiful! She must have been very proud of it and glad it's passed on to someone that will take care of it.

It is a beauty and seems to have a deserving home.

I recall there being one in the small Tennessee resort town where I lived in the mid eighties. It took being informed to fully appreciate them. I came across this :
