Bought my 88 420SEL 1 1/2 years ago from its first owner. Had 100,000 miles on it at the time,a couple of small rust areas, and wheels are a little rough for $9000. Would probably go around $8000 now with 123K on it. Only serious problem was AC didn't work, and I had it converted so it has been fine since then. I have snows on it in the winter, and it's just as good as any other car if driven properly. I had the rust fixed this summer, and its styling is still strong, doesn't look like a 13 year old car. The ride is fabulous, mileage around 18 MPG. Not a jack rabbit starter at the green light, but pleasant enough. Only remaining problem is either starter or flywheel loud noise about 25% of the time when started. But,it's done this since the day I got it, so what's the hurry. $3000 seem suspicious.
