How about a Mercedes for a change?

Should I make a run at it?

Beautiful, one of my favourite MB's of all time (the 300 coupes are pretty special too)...

That looks nice.

What do you think it will cap at?

That is the big question. Hard to say on a car so well photographed and restored. A genuine #1 is always hard to pin down on price. There are so many fakers to the throne that make the price is hard to predict. I am going to guess $45k to $50k but it could go crazy and hit $60kish if two or three fellas get boners. Book high retail (NADA) is $31k. There is obviously a fortune more than that in her.

I think the NADA number is low for a #1 and agree with the $50 range. I don't think I would go above that. Set a bid bot and then leave as the bidding gets to the end. That keeps you from last second impulse buying.

I would think that will carry well for the next decade. Should maintain good value. Are their any examples at MBCA for sale right now, or Hemmings?

Can't set a genuine bid as Ghost Bidding is wild and rampant on E Bay. Must wait and see and probably wait until the auction is over and start a chit chat.

I don't know Shane, that looks like a car that "Charelton Heston" might drive. So that car is so YOU. Buy it NOW.
