560 SL spec's

I'm going to be taking my 86 560 SL to car show's to try and sell it. It would be nice to have a spec sheet avaiable to people to see. Things like the actual weight of the car, the actual engine displacement and horse power as well as the orginal listed sales price when the car was new, maybe even a sales flyer or something showing the car when it was new. Does anyone know where I can find these items?

560 SL Spec's

Thanks guy's for all the info. This is really going to help me make a flyer for selling this car. By the way, do any of you have this drifting problem. It seems to steer like it's stuck in a grove in the road, I'm always compensating with the steering wheel to keep it streight while driving, mostly above 35 to 40 mph. Although the tires look good, I'm going to change them anyway to a higher speed rating which is suppose to give me a stiffer side wall, if that makes any sence.

Thanks,
Tony

Check the front ball joints, the steering gear box, and the steering shock absorber link.
