Appraise this Benz! '86 420 SEL
I have the opportunity to purchase a 1986 420 SEL and would like to hear what it's worth from you guys.
178K miles. Blue. Engine, transmission, brakes, and other major mechanic parts sound and feel perfect. Dent on right door with a few inches of rust on edge of dent. Some corrosion on front bumper; a pair of altoids size holes. Right fog light lens/case is broken. Sunroof doesn't work, but motor can be heard struggling when button is pressed. Left rear window has a problem; power switch doesn't work, and every bump in the road opens the window half an inch until it's all the way down. Interior is decent, but far from pristine, some minor age-related cracks and torn webbing in back seat. Radio is a cheapie replacement likely because the other unit (which is in the trunk) broke. Car has been in salt-plagued New England for all or almost all of its life.
I can answer any questions. Thank you very much for any help!
