Five Convertibles for Sale Nearby
If the hint of spring we had on Wednesday got you thinking about top-down driving, here are five convertibles we found on the North Shore, Andover and North Andover.
It turned cold again today, but earlier this week there was a real spring feel. I even heard woodpeckers in my neighborhood in Salem.
If that hint of spring has you thinking about driving with the top down, here's a feature you'll enjoy. We scanned cars.com and AOL Autos for sweet little convertibles for sale on the North Shore and near Andover/North Andover. Here's what we found:
1. 2001 BMW Z3 — $14,995
I remember the first time I saw one of these. It was on a highway outside Atlanta. Want. This one is a five-speed stick. I was surprised to see how many automatic convertibles are for sale. If you're getting a convertible, who wants an automatic? Apparently a lot of people. This Z3 has 54,662 miles on it. It's being sold by Shamrock Motors in Salem. Find out more via AOL Autos.
2. 2010 Audi A5 Premium Plus — $35,900
You could get used to the leather interior on this one. Just remember to get that top back in place for those sudden downpours or you'll ruin the leather! This automatic has all-wheel drive and 31,456 miles. The seller is Automall Collection in Peabody. Find out more via AOL Autos.
3. 2004 Mercedes-Benz SLK320 — $13,995
Here's a mid-life crisis car that won't break the bank. This one has a six-speed manual transmission (I approve.) I won't pretend to say I understand what this means, but the engine is a 3.2L V6 18V MPFI SOHC. It's being sold by Turnpike Auto in North Andover. Find out more via cars.com.
4. 2007 MINI Cooper S — $12,900
In 2007 MINI did the first redesign of the 2002 MINI that made such a splash. The particular one is an "S" which means more horsepower and slightly worse gas mileage than the non "S" version. It's another automatic (sigh). Beautiful blue body and black top. The seller is Silver Star Motors in Swampscott. Find out more on cars.com.
5. 2011 Ford Mustang — $18,998
This sleek, silver Mustang is powered by a 3.7L V6 24V MPFI DOHC. And yes, it's an automatic, albeit a six-speed automatic. This American Beauty has 26,845 miles. For sale by Thomas Ford in Beverly. Find out more on cars.com.
