Selling my SL500, Need your help!

Hey guys,

I need your help. My grandpa is trying to sell his Mercedes but doesn't really have a clue what price to list the car at or where or how to list the car (website?, newspaper classified?, etc.). I'm trying to help him out.

It's a 1985 SL 500 with only 38,000 miles. It's in absolutely beautiful condition because my grandpa rarely ever drives it (hence the low miles and hence why he wants to sell).

I made a very rudimentary google website with pictures of the car - here's the link:

I was thinking around $16,000 may be appropriate but I'm really not sure. I'm curious for everyone's thoughts.

Thanks in advance and feel free to ask my any questions regarding the car!

It is a 500SL not an SL 500. I almost did not click on the topic because of this.
Try posting your question in the R107 forum.
