Pricing advice needed.
OK, I've got my mom's previous car to sell for her. It's a 1987 560SL gray with gray interior, 107K miles. It's been a SC car, so it's solid with no rust. Paint is showing its age, interior is a bit worn, some cracks in the dash. But mechanically it's 100% (except as noted below) and I've got all the service records since the early 90's when she bought it (2 owner) and recent work includes new top, brakes, Michelin tires, exhaust. Runs like a champ. The heat is intermittent, the antenna doesn't go up and the cruise isn't working. Everything else is fine.
I'm a BMW guy, not a Mercedes expert, so I don't have a clue what I should ask for this car. A friend said to put it on eBay and I get what I can get, but that's a little risky for me. And I don't know what kind of reserve to set.
I will list it here (as well as autotrader and all the other options and anywhere else that you guys may suggest) but I don't have a clue what I should expect to get for it. I see prices for these cars from 3K with a salvage title to upwards of low teens for very nice cars.
So... what's a good selling price for a car like this?
