Someone was selling the exact same thing, a '71 300SEL, 6.3L, same exterior and interior color in Alamo Heights about three-four months ago. Price was $7900. Either someone took pictures of YOUR car, or had the same thing and let it go for cheap.

At any rate, I hope you get what you're asking for it.

As a Texan, I also thought that this ebay car was the one for sale in San Antonio (I remember that car well), but I thought that San Antonio 6.3 had a black interior.

6.3

The car is a condition #3. Maybe even lower depending on documented services performed. The fuel system and suspension system on these particular are finicky, especially when let sit.

Good luck with sale nice color

Suspension and Maintenance

The suspension was completely redone recently and sits up for about a week after driving.

The car has been maintained and taken care of better than most children. I have detailed maint. history dating back to 1988. There is also a mileage log and the car had 14k miles in 1988.

2 original owners. Under 100k original miles.

I guess this is what makes a market. Bulls and bears. Factually, however, I've seen these cars in worse condition with higher miles go for 40k+. Right, wrong, or indifferent ... I've seen it. And they only become rarer every day.

Pictures

Pictures of the interior can be found in the Picasa web album. Just click the large photo that looks like a slideshow toward the bottom of the listing.

Without offending anyone IMO $40K is doubtful without specific verifying documentation; best 6.3's sold have been at Hatch & Sons but nothing that high; after having owned 2 6.3 euros and one 6.9 AMG euro from own experience 6.3's are unique vehicles but as with all MB rarities weakest links in rear ends, transmissions very expensive FI pump replacement and air suspensions on such old cars require fat wallets. BTW up to spec set 6.3 air suspension stays up for at least 90 days or more according to my manual.
