I used Bring A Trailer to try to sell my 1978 450Sl just a few months ago. The results were awful. My 450 is in fantastic condition and all I got were bids from 'flippers'. Your 560SL, if it's in the kind of condition you're talking about, certainly is worth a hell of a lot more than you're asking. The market for 107 roadsters is weird. What we have here is a world full of people who just want to buy and sell. They have little if any appreciation for the car. They just want to buy it cheap and sell it high. Have patience. List it once in a while on Ebay or your local MB club. Eventually, someone who really appreciates it, will come along. I'll keep mine until they bury me rather than sell it to some person who is in the game just to make money. Maybe that's what the world has come to, but if so, I'm not going to be a part of it.
