Valuation Opinion

Just joined today with the hopes of obtaining some informed opinions.
My wife and I are considering selling our vintage SL's. We were hoping to get some idea of what those who are in the know think the range of value would be:

Car #1 Gold 1977 450 SL Black Interior all original 111,000 miles. Includes original Becker Radio. With the exception of two or three lower panel dings the car interior is excellent and the paint is in very good condition. Both tops are in excellent shape. I am the second owner having purchased the car in 1985.
One accident in the nineties repair to the hood and bumper. Motorcyclist crashed into the corner of the car.

Car # 2. Blue 1998 500 SL with tan interior. 35k miles Car is pristine in every way. Second owner. No accidents.

Your thoughts on the range of value and any additional thoughts on marketing beyond the obvious would be helpful? Thanks for your time and input in advance.

For best results try the R107 and R129 forums.

I own a 98 SL500 also. I would estimate yours in the 12K area.

for marketing dont say AC just needs charged, ran when parked or have seat covers on in the pictures.
