Personally, I think it could be worth more than $6k. All records, great care, new trannie, one owner....

Jerry my advice may be unusual, but have a knowledgable MB tech do a PPI. If the report comes out as good as you expect it to, noone will care too much about anything else.... - also it would be very good marketing.

Good luck!

For best results, apply liberally up to three daily until symptoms clear. If symptoms persist for more than 5 days, please seek the advice of a qualified practitioner.

Funny stuff. Man finds out 25 years after buying the car that it wasn't actually 100% hand made; shoots messenger.
And I think the re-badging thing is over-compensatory. My car has the factory de-badging despite being the highest end model of its year, and I think that shows the modesty of the original owner.. or maybe he just didn't want the cops to know what he had under the hood.
