Exclamation 81' 300sd NEED HELP BUYING!!!!!

Hello BenzWorld, I've succumbed to the fact that my benz won't be running anymore but I won't part with it (yet) I'm currently looking on craigslist for a 1981 300sd and found only one classified here. Although it is not in my county, it's worth a shot. I assume that $2000 for a mercedes benz is WAY OUT of its price range so i've decided to contact the seller but i dont know how to be reasonable that his benz is overpriced. anyone have any tips to ask besides the blue book price (LOL @ 2600)..


all help is apuhreeshiatedd

and/or this classified HERE which is NOT the same model but this is way closer to home and i believe i can haggle the price down to 1k maybe less. again i need some tips to tell about how age degrades value, some parts that may be worn out, if i do meet this guy what to look for to lower price on the spot. etc etc.


BENZWORLD i need your help

thanks guys

P.S. would the different model affect parts i can interchange.
i have an 81 300sd in my possession and what would be different between that and an 83' 300d

With a car that you got for less than 1K parts interchangeability is the least of your worries.

I guess buying 30 years old car for the value of its wheels you should not have too many requirements?
I wonder why in the age when everybody had 5M camera build into his phone anybody would make poor quality pictures for selling add? Not that they would like to cover peeling off paint or ripped interior?
