Maybe the ad copy needs a "tune up"?
It's a beautiful car in an ultra desirable color and real low miles for its age and what it can run to. Perhaps it is not selling because of the time of year, and the holidays, or the ad itself has too much fluff, ie, describing the handling and the girlfriend. I'd re-write it, and jazz up the wording, emphasizing heavily the gas mileage (more important to people at most price points but especially here) AND the rarity of the coveted Sportline package, and the combo of both in a great color and the mechanical excellence/unburstability of the inline 6, and the lifetime loving care it has had. The price could be higher but all you need to get is ONE appreciative buyer and if it's eust and accident free it might be enough. I would personal run a CARFAX or Autocheck on the car and provide the link or information therein. I'd brag up the loving care the "cherished possession" has had, etc. a bit.
Best of luck with the sale. It sounds like s sweet car to me. Properly advertised I think it could appeal to both w124 enthusiasts and mpg obsessed non-enthusiasts who want to get into a old Mercedes for cheap at a low price.
Just my opinion.
