You can see that the car has already had at least one round of rust repair, and has a lot of deferred maintenance like the subframe mounts. So without an inspection, it's hard to tell what needs to be done. I can tell you from experience that if you think $800 is a lot to spend, then you should not buy the car.

But the 113s are appreciating and even basket cases are moving into the high teens and low twenties. Not sure what the price of the car is, but I would assume the seller knows that and has priced it accordingly.

Good luck, and check out Welcome - Mercedes Benz 230SL, 250SL, 280SL Pagoda Group for more information.

OK guys. Running fast now!
I have an Indy in NJ and asked him to check the car and maybe buy/sell it for his shop. He works on my w123 and r107, both of which are almost daily driven by myself and sons. There are quirks with these older benzes for sure but ive learned keeping them on the road is part of their maintenance.
Thanks to all. Will keep hunting and now see that $40k is the better price target for these w113s.
