Value of a 1985 560 SL

I am also selling my friends 1986 560 SL with 56k Original miles. It also has the hardtop. The paint is ok with a little fading and the interior is in mint condition. I am trying to get a ball park price range to list the car at. There are some on autotrader for around 20,000. Is this an average price. Here are pictures before I cleaned and waxed it, and from a camera phone probably a bad idea to post pictures before I cleaned and waxed it, I am just trying to get a ballpark.

I forgot to mention it is actually a german import. I don't know if this helps or hurts the value. But I have all the papers.

I have no idea on the price, But that 560 looks like it probably cleaned up nice. Slick car. I would like to see pics of the '71 sel. I have a '71 280 sel, but it has 92,000 mi. on it.

US 560SL's started their run in 1986 in the US.

Right this one was imported from Germany. I don't know if this helps or hurts the value.

The VIN number will tell, but I don't believe this is a 560SL. Possibly a 380 or 500 if it is a V8. Someone likely changed the badge at the rear. First step is to accurately i.d. the car. 20k is much too high, probably half that would be a nearer est. Post this on the 107 board for a more thorough response.
