Thanks for the replies. I decided to pass on that car, as I thought $5000. was a little steep for that particular car. The 86 560SEL I was interested in a while back for $6995 (which I thought was way too steep) has been relisted on a local classified site for $3900. It is gray, 127K miles and looks to be in excellent condition. I am also considering a 1990 Lexus LS400 with 225K for $3900., but since I have seen this Mercedes- I am also going to consider that. I will check to see if the chain has been replaced.
What really get me is that there was a 1976 450SEL advertised locally for only $1000. It was in VGC. Seller sold it first day it was advertised.
