I have done much research on this particular vehicle and your crazy for thinking it's a parts car. Of course it would be good, the car runs damn good! Meaning all the damn parts would work fine! Duh. What is this? Come test drive it, get in the car, and see how it goes.

This is a car that shows its true colors and has never been restored! What are you gonna say to that? So.. the paint is all original as well as everything else. . What more can I say except for thanks for the feedback I suppose, but my research seems different from what your saying thats for sure. .

sounds like alot to me honestly. my 280c is in better condition and is worth less than that. you should get a few grand for it though, i would imagine about 2000-2500

You can buy 85 point cars all day for $6-8k. This is a 50 point car on a good day. $3-4k.

Miles on the motor don't matter; the body is nearly a chrome donor. The interior is shabby. Does the AC work? Windows? Radio? Locks? Show us the underside-any fluid leaks? Tires good? Any bent wheels? Steering rack tight? Bushings okay?

You'll need a barefoot pilgrim to get within $4k of your asking, and you won't find that person on this forum.

Good luck.

Thanks for the advice guys, and no rust underneath no oil or any leaks for that matter. No rust except for the surface rust!!! Which isnt much of anything! Why is that hard to understand? lol. . Also, why wouldnt miles on an engine matter? Please, tell me? I went back to the dealership in KC where I bought this Mercedes, and spoke with the owner who was like see told ya, and he said he could get that thing painted, fixed rust too, for no more than $1200. And this is a decent size dealership, so obviously the guy knows ppl, which I hope that isnt hard to understand either, only because its not much money. Leather seats can be upholstered for $200 a pop. I think my car is definitely worth more than what most ppl say. Sorry just what my research has proven. No worries, it will sell itself. Maybe not $9,000 ok I was aiming a tad high. $6,000 without a doubt. Thanks again folks!
All in all I wish I could keep the damn thing, but that's not gonna happen.

First off, you guys NEVER drove it. Never got underneath of it. And your judging it by an amateur cleanup and two slight spots of surface rust. . Aint no thing. However, I may keep it and get that $1,000 paint job which im sure your all laughing at, and upholster the seats. THEEEENNNN according to you that would be a $10,000 vehicle. So but I'll just sell it as is, I just need a car for school and the lake. Hav a great summer, folks.
