Help on pricing
« on: April 12, 2009, 06:29:30 PM »
Trying to place a fair price for a 1961 Mercedes 220SE Cabrio.
Car is un restored, excellent used condition, no visible rust or accident damage.
Wrong carpets which were probably replaced at one time, good top and excellent chrome and glass.
Any help in determening a fair price would be appreciated.

Hard to say without seeing more pictures on the car. A  "realistic selling price under the present climate" for a well restored SE cab car should be around the 85K range. Expect around 55-60K for an unrestored one in good condition.

FJ is right. It's difficult to say woithout a lot more photos that discuss the storage, care and previous use of the vehicle. Sometimes photos hide a lot as well, often inadvertently. I used to visit people within a 5 state area when they sold their Studebakers, especially the ones from the 1930s, because the true/fair value depended so much on the condition, storage, use etc  and a number of things which the seller often did not describe.

One would also need to get under the car, jacked up and look for rust in the floor and sills, can only be inspected carefully when under the car,

As we all know early Mercedes rust terribly, can be a lot of hidden problems, while the engine, gearbox etc.. are generally fairly reliable and trouble free items.


Some more pictures would help in making a better judgment, around the windows, under the car, where the panels meet up etc.. etc..
