It's bad form to criticize someone's for sale listing so I apologize to you for that.QUOTE]
Could it be that a true gentleman has invaded our board !!!!
I tip my hat to you and yes, what ever price a buyer will pay and a seller will sell is what that one car is worth to that one person on that single day.
Of course the usual... "If I want to sell it it's worth a lot but if you're selling it and I want to buy it, it's worth nothing..." -- pretty much standard form across the board in just about every hobby.
Someone was selling the exact same thing, a '71 300SEL, 6.3L, same exterior and interior color in Alamo Heights about three-four months ago. Price was $7900. Either someone took pictures of YOUR car, or had the same thing and let it go for cheap.One last thing, this car has NEVER, and i mean NEVER been posted on CL for 8k. I know that for a fact. Any suggestion otherwise is completely false. Please let me know if anyone ever has this model in this condition on craigslist or ebay for 8k. I'll buy it sight unseen. These cars are worth far, far more than that.
