There is easily $8k-$10k or more of "deferred maintenance" needed on this car. And that's not addressing the paint condition.
There was a fairly nice W116 on MB Market last week: https://thembmarket.com/1980-mercedes-benz-300sd-1 [https://thembmarket.com/uploads/listings/ad7nb7/1980-300sd/listing-pics/photo-jun-14-2023-5-55-43-pm.jpeg]<https://thembmarket.com/1980-mercedes-benz-300sd-1> 41-years Owned 1980 Mercedes-Benz 300SD For Sale | The MB Market<https://thembmarket.com/1980-mercedes-benz-300sd-1> Bid for your chance to own this 1980 Mercedes-Benz 300SD on The MB Market. Finished in Astral Silver Metallic (735) over Black MB-Tex (101), this classic sedan is powered by a 3.0L turbodiesel engine paired to a 4-speed automatic transmission. thembmarket.com RNM at $6k. It needs things, too, but it's definitely better than Kaleb's in a lot of different ways. I think the market is starting to slow down for some of these "classics". -D ________________________________ From: Mercedes <mercedes-boun...@okiebenz.com> on behalf of Randy Bennell via Mercedes <firstname.lastname@example.org> Sent: Monday, July 10, 2023 1:17 PM To: Kaleb Striplin via Mercedes <email@example.com> Cc: Randy Bennell <rbenn...@bennell.ca> Subject: Re: [MBZ] How much do you all think this is worth? I would expect that 316K miles does not help sell it. The car just looks worn, especially on the inside. Also, the rusty air cleaner under the hood is a turn off. Clean it up and paint it.
