Thanks again guys. I'm glad I came here, I would have never noticed that it was in an accident because of the headlamp/door fit. The guy will be back into town Monday and then I'll get a concrete asking price. Again, I appreciate all the help! Oh, and rumb, I'll let you know!

Usually you can tell on the w113 cars on the inside of the front fender on the inside of the headlamp doors there is a small body line fender notch that goes by the inside of the headlamp door usually if the shop that repaired the car does not know about this they fill them in but the shops that know could always fill and cut them in with plastic filler hope that helps any other help you need let me know I have done about 10 of these cars and 5 of them concours ones these are great little cars I hope to have one some day

Okay so I went and talked with the guy on Monday about the car. He had a friend who apparently buys these cars and ships them to Germany to sell them because they are worth more there (don't know the validity of this it is just what he said) and that friend told him it was "the nicest one he'll ever see" and he told him he could get anywhere from 40k to 60k for it. I'm going to pass on this one and I know there was one guy that wanted to know about the car if I didn't buy it but if anyone else wants to know the address and phone # pm me.
