There are the following 4 on hands of friends locally; impeccable cars, they don't need to sell but will always listen if the offer is right for them:
1. 1966 Euro 230SL rare 4 speed, Nardi wheel, fully restored: $60K
2. 1968 280SL, auto, rebuilt trans no rust, very original: $55K
3. 1968 and 1969 280SL, both owned same individual, beautiful original condition no rust: $65K and $70K.
Please understand these cars are owned by wealthy physicians and real estate developers so they may be persuaded with a cash on hand offer but will not haggle, won't even listen to low ball offers.
I expect a flow of armchair chit chat but the reality of the market is that these early Pagodas in pristine condition are fast approaching $100K.
