Well, as to the first, it's the last model year for the US (produced til 1993 in South Africa). It seems to have been a Texas car all it's life, so little chance that there's any rust, which is an excellent thing. I'm not sure if they have all the records. If they do, and they show that this vehicle has been well-maintained by a dealer or trustworthy indie, it could be worth it. The exterior definitely looks nice, and the interior seems to have been cared for (though not my color of choice). The color combo must be nice here in the hot Texas sun.
The second car, is well above the budget but it too is a pretty clean example of a 560SEL, minus the rear window rust issue, which if taken care of soon, won't be problem.
There aren't a lot members selling their cars. I don't suppose you have a local classified listing in your country where people sell cars? Or are you looking specifically to import from foreign country? I can check eBay in Germany as well, or any other European country for that matter.
