Just noticed the wrong AMG badge on the rear. That badge was not used in 83, which would make me a bit suspicious for that amount of money.

Regards,

I'd guess that it definately will not meet his reserve and final bid will be approx $12,900.

I wonder what my 380SEC will get then? Also a 1983, mine's a 380 US model vs. 500 Euro (some good and bad to each).

Mine has no AMG body kit, just 16" AMG wheels. Mine is in same or better condition with half (38K) the miles.

I think the 500 on ebay will end around $12K.

Guys,
Lok at the placement of the wrong style badge on the back of the boot. About 6 years before they changed the style. It's even a piss poor job on the placement of the emblem. Look close and there are no grommet holes where the original emblems affixed to the boot.

If this car went thru AMG, who thinks they would put Ronal R31 Centras on a complete job as described. They would have used the AMG Pentas rather than another manufacturers product like Ronal.

Even the colour of the front seats looks like a respray as well as the body colour.

I think it's a resprayed car with a body kit stuck on, not worth 17k to me. It looks good and would be nice at 10-12k.
