May sell or trade my 560. Need asking value
Hi all. I am thinking about selling or trading in my 87 560sl and was hoping some of you may be able to offer your opinions on what a realistic asking price would be for it. It is 040 black over palomino. Interior is very good to nearly excellent condition. Exterior has a few very minor chips. Clean car fax though at some time in its distant past has had some repaint on the right side. In the last 4 years I have replaced the soft top (GAHH), sub frame bushings, tie rods, center link, idler arm bushings, steering coupler, shocks (blistein heavy duty), injectors and seals, timing chain and rails, some ac parts and all basic maintainence items (plugs and wires, all filters and fluids). Also new brakes all around(Oem Mercedes) . It could stand a buff and polish but overall looks very good. Less than 64 k miles. Everything works as it should. I have records going back the last 20 years. Car has been a Georgia and Florida car all it's life and has 0 rust. Could stand a new rear muffler at some time but not loud or rattling. A few of you on the board have seen the car and might chime in.
I know the prices on these cars are all over the place but am wondering what is realistic. I know I will never recover my cost but need a new daily driver car and this doesn't really fit the bill.
Thanks for any input and I expect some flaming over selling it.
