Hey Everyone, new member here. James is the name.

received a 87 sl560 for a wedding gift in great shape. unfortunately, I cannot keep the car. it has to be sold. cannot justify 2 cars to sit around and do nothing for years (have another toy).

Anyone have any suggestions on the best way to sell? I have put it on Kijiji as well as trader for the last 3 months and still no takers. Was told about this site through a friend that works at a benz dealership. figured I would give it a shot on here for suggestions.

Located in Canada.

Thanks

I'm not sure you have access to the for sale or trade forum but if so, list it there. Post intricate details about it's condition, mileage, etc. Photos would be great.

James, if it has to be sold, just drop the price.

You are competing with similar old models like this one with less mileage (and cheaper), as well as newer models.

I guess it really depends on the area too...as here in Ontario, they can range from 10k - 25k...issue being is that there seems like only the 1% of people out there actually looking for this car...I will post pix this weekend...
