Found an '84 380sl, 39500 miles, in VERY clean shape. 2 questions. First, small leak on lower right side of engine, near front (near the radiator), is red in color. Is this tranny fluid being cooled by radiator? Doesn't look like it's coming from Power steering pmp, but it could be. Second, car doesn't start on its own, needed a jump, has been in storage for two years. Battery has a '98 date on it, ran engine for 20 minutes, still didn't start on its own. Is this the alternator, and i so, estimated cost to replace/repair?
Owner is asking $16,500. What would be a fair offer for this car? Repair histor is not available, but then again, there's only 39,000 miles on it.
