FS: 1985 MB 500SL (Euro)

Hi Everyone, I am new to this forum and would like to sell my 1985 500SL. This car is gold in pretty good shape (the paint on the hood is starting to peel) with around 120K miles. One of the fog lights has broken glass and like I said the paint is peeling on the hood, other than that it runs well. I was given this car as a gift and have no idea as to the value.....can anyone offer advice on the value of this vehicle in fair/good shape? Thank you in advance. If anyone is interested I can post pictures tomorrow!

Gonna move this to the General For Sale board. Be sure and familiarize yourself with the posting rules in the various boards.

From the limited information and no pictures who knows what the market will be. Is it in original condition with no headlight and bumper modifications for the US? Any maintenance records? If the timing chain service has not been done it is overdue. $500.00 DIY or $1,500 for a shop.

$2,500.00 to $6,000.00 value assuming no rust.
