1950s Mercedes Sedan Value
Hi. Well, a neighbor that lives 2 houses down from me has been sitting on a 1950s Mercedes sedan for decades. When I was 15, I asked him how much he wanted for it, he said $5k. If I had the money back then, I would have bought it.
He said it was used as a parade car so it has low milage and that it does run, although Iv never in my 15 years of living here seen him even go near the car let alone start it. So I cant be sure it runs. But considering the car has been sitting ungaraged for decades, it looks amazing and rust free from what I can tell.
I figure if I can offer him $5k in cash he would probably take it, not even knowing what the car is really worth especially if it has low milage on it. Im unsure of the exact model of it, its been years since Iv looked at it up close but when I did it looked prestine.
Id venture to say its probably a 180, Ill have to get a closer look tomorrow to see the model number on the back (which I can see the car from my garage, just cant make out the numbers). And Ill try and get some pictures of it and talk to him.
If its a 180 with low milage and in mint condition, what would it be worth? Iv been eyeing this car for years, I must have it.
