Project Car Package - 1963 190SL & 1969 280SL

Both cars are disassembled with a lot of new parts, some body and engine machine work completed. Disassembled means completely gutted for restoration. All of the parts are intermingeled along with John Deere parts. Both cars go as a package ONLY, and no guarantee that every part is there. Make no mistake, moving these will require quite a bit of time and space as the parts are in the garage, the overhead, the house....

It's been a while since I have seen them but the '69 was painted red and ready to put back together. The block & head were rebuilt & should be ready for reassembly. I don't remember the exact status of the 190SL.

They are located in Western Pennsylvania , were part of an estate passed down to my sister-in-law. She is ready to part with them and asked me to help. I don't have any photos and won't for a while. I hope to go there in the next few weeks.

We haven't set a price and are interested in offers (and suggestions from you folks). I'm not ready for another Mercedes project or I would acquire them.

Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.

The hard part is knowing what is reasonable. I'd like to think it is somewhere between $10-20K. If it's only worth $5K I will be back into Mercedes restoration myself I thought I was done with that.

The idea is to sell it at a price at which the buyer feels like he got a good deal and the seller still owns their shorts. They want to see it go bye-bye.

We are open to suggestions and hopefully I will have photos soon.
