i have a 1986 560 sel with 100k miles on it. needs work. how much is it worth?
only as much as someone will pay........ ECON 101
it's a nice car, but expensive to repair- the value depends on the repairs needed- doesn't seem like a lot of miles that's a +, so if the repairs are minor, have them done- if the paint and interior are nice- and everything is working and it's ready to drive to Padre Island- sell it as a "classic" and ask for 3,995- then come down-
Collectors of the w126 s-class value condition first, then mileage. If your car is clean and well maintained, at 100k miles you should be around $7500 ( as of 2013 ); If it's a beater - all bets are off.
What about the fact that the 1986 560 SEL officially becomes a classic in 2016... The classic status has to affect the value!
