MUST SELL! Rare, Classic Mercedes 300 SEL 6.3

Hi Everyone.

I inherited this car from my grandfather who was the second owner. This was his pride and joy. The first owner lived in town and took the car to the same shop so i have COMPLETE maintanence records including a full parts guide. The car is in excellent condition and has 83k ORIGINAL MILES. I'm really upset that I have to sell his treasure, but times are tough and I'm trying to go back to school. The car runs and drives like a charm. I have no clue what its worth so Im just gonna take some offers and see where I'm at. I am hoping to sell this very soon, but I want to feel that I got a fair price.

Here are some pictures below. He told me this car was very rare and would be worth a ton one day. I just don't know how much.


Thank you.
David

Gorgeous car. Do as much research as you can on the value so you don't get ripped off or have too high of expectations. I'd start off by posting a thread for help in the vintage section. Maybe you could make a few calls to classic dealerships too. Things like "NADA guides" are horribly inaccurate usually. Some more pictures would help the sale as well. Also you'll probably want to say specifically where you are.(Nevermind, saw you added the city.) And please make sure it goes to someone that deserves it! Good luck with the sale.

P.S. Dr.AMG, love the "Red Pig!" Good luck at the Nurburgring.

Thank you so much. I did a little bit of homework today and was amazed at the value for these after restoration. I also posted the car in a few other places and have gotten a lot of interest and even some quotes. Unfortunately, time is not fully on my side to hold out. It does need to be sold very soon. It really is quite an amazing car so I hope it ends up with someone worthy as well.

If you know anyone who might be interested, have them contact me. I just found out that only 6500 of these were made. Pretty crazy.
