Classic MZB convertible 560SL perfect for someone who wants to tool around LA in retro, old-school Rat Pack style. Everything works, but of course, the tech is pure 1980s...original AM/FM radio, etc. It does have a cassette deck if you still own any cassettes (or I have a selection of classics you can groove to)! Automatic transmission.
Bring your sunblock and sunglasses! The car will provide the smiles at no extra charge!
Must be age 30+ to rent
Original AM/FM radio
Leather bucket seats
Can deliver at Turo's LAX Valet service location behind the Custom Hotel on Lincoln Boulevard just north of LAX (you can take a free hotel shuttle from LAX) or elsewhere in West LA area.
In some cases, I might be able to meet you at LAX or leave in LAX short-term parking garage for pickup.
NO SMOKING CIGARETTES OR CIGARS IN CAR, PLEASE.
Will deliver the car with a full tank. Please gas up with at least mid-grade premium before returning.
Convertible soft-top is raised/lowered manually (not automatic top up-and-down at push of a button like modern convertibles). But it isn't too hard to maneuver. And since it is reliably sunny in LA most days, chances are you won't need to put the top up due to weather!
When parking in a sketchy neighborhood, please use valet or secure parking lot. I also include a car cover in the trunk that can be quickly slipped over the car for overnight parking.
The trunk is not huge, but there is a reasonably-sized flat "shelf" behind the bucket seats where you can store extra carry-on luggage, backpacks or similar items. Of course, never leave anything of value in plain sight unattended, even if locked with the top up!
Hope you driving enjoy the car as much as I do! Please treat it like your own…
This car was everything you would hope for from a classic and Stacey could not have been more accommodating. It was an easy pickup and drop off (he actually came and got himself from the hotel!) and fast communication for anything we needed during the trip. The only issue was the windows broke, but things like that can be expected with old cars. Stacey addressed it immediately and provided us a wonderful replacement car while he did maintenance. Highly recommend and whenever we are back in LA fingers crossed it's available!
The 560SL was a dream to rent during my Los Angeles trip. Great condition, very fun and it feels so special out on the road. Operating the convertible top is like a small puzzle-solving exercise that leaves you with a sense of accomplishment.
Stacey was super easy to communicate with and made it easy for me to pick up the car when it was inconvenient for him due to his travel plans. I appreciated that. There were a few minor issues with a car that is an antique (which Stacey was quick to address), yet nothing detracted from how much fun it was to cruise around in a classic! I had so much fun!
