1991 560SEL 10K original miles
I've been looking for an older Benz for quite a while. Ideally, I wanted a diesel (W123 or W126) but I came across a 91 560SEL for sale. I haven't taken a look at it yet because it is at a dealer close to 3 hours from my home, but I am willing to take the trip if warranted.
Although photos can hide a lot of things, the car does appear to be in original condition and everything supposedly works on it. My question is, assuming it is all original at 10K, how good of a deal is $6500? This seems quite reasonable to me, but I haven't kept close tabs on prices for gasoline models of this vintage.
I know that the amount of expense that goes into maintaining a Mercedes is highly condition upon mileage and care of the vehicle, so in that case this seems to be about as good as it can get. About how much should I expect to spend annually on repairs if I am driving around 150 miles per week? This would be my first MB, so I want it to be good.
I appreciate any feedback and advice.
