Just went to look at the 300 SEL I discussed in a thread two days ago ... following observations:

1. 68K miles - very nice engine with usual leaks from bottom of timing cover
2. Trans shifts well - I have a 350 SDL - shifts very much like it. Seems a bit tighter.
3. Brakes nice - learned that the pedal on my 350 SDL is a bit soft - time to bleed, I guess
4. One fender had been replaced ... not perfect paint ... likely some other damage on same side as I can see tape "edges" and some paint on the rear window seal
5. Usual dings in doors, but quite a few scratches and edges with paint scuffed off

Nothing serious, lots of little stuff.

What range should I be willing to pay for this car?

Check out the Kelley Blue Book online.

There are likely other good sources of info as well. If you're buying from a dealer(not just MB), you can bet the asking price will be more. Good luck.

James Madison - Oppressors can tyrannize only when they achieve a standing army, an enslaved press, and a disarmed populace.

Liberty Firearms Training - After years of trying to regulate California criminals with a never ending stream of gun control laws they have still not given up with the belief that if they make something a crime that criminals will miraculously start obeying the law.
