84 380 SL "survivor"

Just joined the Benzworld.org community and planning on advertising my 1984 380 SL with .20,100 actual miles. Car is as one would hope for and I am not sure where to begin with pricing. This is TRULY a proper car, still on the original Michelin tires without a door ding, paint fade or other excuse. Also have hard top. ????
Any help would be much appreciated.
Thanks,
Mark

In this market...

In this market it sounds like maybe a $15k car. If you can find the right buyer and if it is truly a flawless "no stories" car. Low mileage "regular production cars" are no commanding a premium. Once someone starts using the car they will be dealing with rebuilding the front end rubber, probably redoing the A/C, maybe replacing the heater core, tires, hoses, belts etc. If you can find someone who wants a "survivor" to keep and store then they might be willing to pay the premium ($15k) price.

Photos might help. Orginal tires from 1984? 27 year old tires may not be a good sale point. Even if such old tires were unused they become a hazard due to aging of the rubber.

W210 1996 E320 Exterior Smoke Silver, Interior Mushroom, 159,999 miles as of 09/09/09, 170K as of 02/01/2011.
