88 560 SEC, looking to buy need advice.

Hey all,

So I've found a 88 560SEC, I can pick it up for about $3500.
181K, body is straight and rust free.
Clearcoat is just starting to flake in a couple places on the roof.
Everything works, windows, seats etc.
Runs great.
Blue in color.

I realize you can't see it, I'll see of I can get a profile shot up in a min here.
The reason I'm so hesitant is NADA says $7400 for Low book value and yet $3500?
I'm concerned.

With the info I've provided think its an ok price?

Last Mercedes I had was a 83 300td, loved it but this car is not even close as far as a comparison. 3rd vs 4dr..and all.

Its not perfect, the dash is cracked and covered with a Dash Mat. Mirror joystick is pushed down onto the console a bit and that part of the console has 2 small screws holding it down.

Seats are in good shape, leather isn't all nasty or torn.

Looks pretty good and priced fairly to me. That's a W126 so I would find that forum in the sedans section and ask the actual owners.

Ya doing this from Tapatalk, wasn't able to find that specific forum.

Nadaguides is crap, don't even bother with it. $3500 is a little bit much compared to what others are selling for, but still worth it if it checks out in an inspection. I'd offer $3k.. but if you really want it, go ahead and pay the $3500 if necessary. It's not a rip off, though you can get cheaper, depending on where you are located.
Here's the link to the 126 section. Good luck with her. W126 S,SE,SEC,SEL,SD,SDL Class - Benzworld.org - Mercedes-Benz Discussion Forum
