Definitely let's see some pic, also your car is a W108, not W116, so you should be in the vintage forum.

Hello again Benzworld forum members,
I have been attempting to post pics of my 71' 280sel but the ice storm has kept my baby indoors. Today was a nice day to take the Benz out for some pics. Im interested in selling this vehicle only to someone that will take good care of it. What is the market value of this car? The body is very straight and has only minor surface rust on the driver rear door panel. 95000 original miles and I've replaced the water pump, fluids, and all belts. Ill post interior pics soon but was unable to get good pics due to the memory stick in my camera acting up on me. Ive been reading about how rare this vehicle is in term of production numbers and my research tells me this vehicle ranges in selling price based on condition anywhere between $4000-$6500obo. This car would need very minor work to be in great condition. What do you members think? Thanks for taking a look at my post and I hope to hear back from everybody.

280sel

Can you take closer pictures of the trunk wells and rocker panels. It seems there is rust but it is hard to see the extent of the damage.

Its minor surface rust and ill post closer pics soon. The car is also close to forty years old aswell...... Its in straight shape and rust in rocker panels and trunk wells is very common place from what ive read. In other words I dont see it being a major repair bill.

Well you asked..i dont see that as "minor suface rust" i really bet the drivers side is thru and anywhere you see it you could push a screwdriver right thru..so with that in mind i my self would'nt want it, as with this much rust in open its to much for me.My value would be $1000 ..as buying a car for $8000 would be tha same thing..hey now you asked so dont flame me..i know most would'nt tell as feelings get hurt..Jeff

because the rust is minimal i would put it at about 2000-2500, but with some time i could probably find worse spots on the floor or engine compartment
