I have a 1986 Mercedes 560 SL Convertible that I would like to sell and am having trouble coming up with a reasonable value for he car. KBB and other similar sites don't go back that far and asking prices on Craig's List and AutoTrader are all over the map. The overall condition of the car is fair. The exterior is free of dents but it could use paint and the clear-coat is flaking off in a few places. Also, the paint on the alloy needs to be redone. The interior is good except it needs a seat kit. There are a few splits in the seats and one of the seams has separated for a few inches. There are no major mechanical problems. Just the rough idle I mentioned in my previous question and the odometer quit working a couple of years back at 165,311 miles. I estimate that the current mileage is between 170K and 180K. There are also a couple of rattles when you hit a hard bump. I have had the AC converted to R134 and it blows cold.
Could any of you give me your thoughts on what would be a fair price for this car?
