The car you are talking about is the 107. It was built in the U.S. roughly from 1973 to 1989. The 1986-1989 560sl was the best of the 107's hands down. The only problem is that the cars MUST have been well maintained to be in good shape. This would include all records of service and coolant and brake fluid changes! Be sure to have it looked over by a tech who knows these cars well. Good luck!!
