    Buzz Aldrin's 1988 Red Mercedes 560 SL Convertible with Lois Aldrin's "MOONGAL" California License Plate, Originally from His Collection. This was purchased by Buzz Aldrin in 1988 when Buzz & Lois were living in Lois's home in Emerald Bay, Laguna Beach. The exterior color is red (274/568) with tan leather interior, convertible black top and red & chrome hard top (VIN # WDBBA48D0JA077997). The current odometer reading is only 78,540 and it has been lovingly serviced only by authorized Mercedes dealers in Newport Beach and Beverly Hills during its pampered existence. Aldrin has been an avid Mercedes fan for many years and has even made promotional appearances on the company's behalf. Here is your chance to own one that belonged to Lois and him. The car is at our Beverly Hills location and transportation will be the buyer's responsibility after the sale.
