Fs: 1985 500sel Imported Classic Immaculate Must See

Located in Tucson, AZ

About 168,000 WELL MAINTAINED miles

DIRECT IMPORT by former airline owner (see picture below)

Completely Immaculate car. Everything is in working condition.

Runs like brand new. All major repairs done (receipts included)

Not much else to say, I'd be happy to answer all and any questions. Please look at pictures below, including original books, first aid kit, 10-disc CD changer

Please refer to Nada pricing guides, this is a collectable, Mercedes enthusiast classic.

This 500SEL would absolutely fall under the "High Retail Value":

High Retail Value
This vehicle would be in excellent condition overall. It could be a completely restored or an extremely well maintained original vehicle showing very minimal wear. The exterior paint, trim, and mechanics are not in need of reconditioning. The interior would be in excellent condition. Note: This value does not represent a "100 Point" or "# 1" vehicle *.

1) You need to learn how to post links.

2) High value according to your link is $14,400: Classic Car Value

3) $14,400? Are you insane? Did you only look at the NADA guides to set your price, or did you actually study the market incorrectly? Value for a 500SEL will be lower than a 560SEL, and for $14,400 I can buy a 560SEL with 40,000 miles on it.

4) Your car's value is $6000 on the low and $8000 on the high, and since it has 168,000 miles on it, you're on the low.

5) Don't come to Mercedes site and try to whack us with high prices - we know the value of a Mercedes. It's our thing. Post this on BMW websites so maybe you can find a sucker who doesn't know what he's doing.

POS, I wouldn't even bother with this post.

Probably some used car hack shyster with some big inflatable doll in front of his lot.

People wonder why used car dealers get the reputation they do. Unbelievable.
