1957 220S - is there a market for this MB?

Hi,

I have the opportunity to purchase a 1957 220s that is in good shape. The owner died and the spouse is looking to sell it. I'm considering the purchase but if I do and decide the car is not for me is there a market for the vehicle? Any thoughts on market value should I sell it?

Thank you in advance.

Tom

Check out Mercedes-Benz Pontons (1953-1962) © www.mbzponton.org for all sorts of info. They also have a Yahoo site. The car looks in good shape and would be an excellent driver. Check ebay or ask the Ponton crowd.

Not part of the in-crowd since 1952. It's BRAKES not breaks. You break a bone, use brakes to stop your car. /rant

Looks like the car is in great shape. The pontoners could give you a better idea on how much it could go for. I think there would always be a market for vintage MBs as the years pass by and they become rarer and rarer. I'd buy one if I had the money!
