    1988 Mercedes 560 SL

    Honored!!!!

    This, I must say, was an honor to be in it’s presence.

    Some cars are works of art and this in one of them. It was someone’s gem for sure. This is a well kept time capsule that goes to show what could happen if you protect your investment.

    This low milage Mercedes was the car to have in it’s day. And now it will make someone else an extremely happy owner. It will put a smile on their face every time they sit in the driver’s seat!!!

    We were able to make sure that the paint was at its best on this project. The car got a full makeover and protection. The interior was cleaned thoroughly and protected as well. The engine compartment was cleaned as well. The wheels got the proper treatment to ensure that the chrome was like new.

    This car has been well preserved and protected!!!!

    One of my favorite Mercedes models. I still see a few on the road occasionally. Sadly none in really good shape. None of them compares to this one!

    Now that is cool.

    I'm not a MB fan, but I would make an exception to the rule here........
    It is no coincidence that man's best friend cannot talk.

    My 7 th grade literature teacher had one of these in tan. It was about that time I started getting really interested in luxury cars

    Nice work on an great car!
    I did one a few years ago, but it had spent time in the northeast, so was starting to rot on the lower rockers. The paint on the hood was thin, so it only got a cleaner wax (Thanks Mike P.!). The owner was very pleased, but I know what it could have looked like if it had been better cared for.
