I looked at this car in person a couple years ago. Believe it was offered for around $4000. Too many issues so I didn't bother to make an offer. Repaint was so-so and they used some ultra gloss clear that just didn't look right. Owner says he corrected the problems. Hope he is better at car repair than his photography skills. It is important when marketing older benz's to include a front seat photo like this. I call it the "money shot"
Bold color choices, that's for sure, but so 80's.:grin

However, the cars is a bit confusing. It looks all original and according to the build documents, but some parts are in great shape (seats) while the curtains are shredded and lots of surface rust under the hood and underneath.
Oh dear! I could see a bad respray.....that is a sad car. At least the console screws aren't drywall 🤣
But...Euro bumpers, headlights with wipers, webasto heater..maybe right Euro tail? Miscellaneous odds and ends you could pull. Those are worth the 7-800 offer I bet he'd take. Scrap will take care of the rest.
I came across this car on Facebook Marketplace and it looks like a really neat project with great potential.

Hi. I have a 1985 Mercedes-Benz 500 SEC Euro model and I have the sunroof that leaks. I know this is common. I checked all my gutters and they are clean. Does anyone know what gaskets up in that sunroof can be replaced? I would appreciate any comment. Thank you, Bryan
