How about this 1980 450 and it is the 4.5ltr V8 model?

Looks like a stock M117 - It's not a 6.9 if that is what you are asking.

Hello Bryce yes you are right.

The value of the 450 have or are increasing?

People will pay top dollar for 10/10 cars. Personally I think to get a price like this it would need to have less than 100k on the clock, but we'll never really know the true selling price anyway as this is just an asking price.

Howd’y all well the 450SEL has been listed as sold that was quick!

Interesting to see if the car was sold anywhere near the advertised asking price?

500SL 107. In my view the best of the 107 SL's as the 560 looked over done with the various spoilers, 3rd brake light etc.

https://www.pickles.com.au/cars/item...ors/3020065667

Car looks ok from the fairly poor quality pictures, although I would be assuming it hasn't actually done 38k from looking at things like wear on the seat etc.

Totally agree with you on the 500SL.
That’s a nice looking car, pity it has black interior.
It would have been stunning with a beige upholstery!

Russell ‘Rusty’ Crowe’s 2001 S500.

The car has actually been sold to a radio station in Sydney purchased for $34K.

$34K does seem top dollar for the car yes or no?

Yes. You're probably spending about $28k for the previous ownership and $6k for the car. Celebrities often don't maintain cars very well as its easy come easy go.

Red S1 W126 anyone?

https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/nort...dan/1180419637

$3900
Looks in decent shape for the price. Unusual to see a 380 with plastic hubcaps

Interesting w116 Ute conversion. Looks better done than most. Not really a fan of Ute conversions but this one isn’t bad:

To my eyes, that 450 certainly seems to be in top notch condition, and it is heartening to see this model sell so quickly and, possibly, at the advertised price. I did in fact call in to the Oldtimer Centre last Saturday just gone, as I wanted to have a look at some E-Bikes at a shop just close by.

I had driven past the Centre on my way to the bike shop, so took the opportunity to call in and "kick tyres" as I had a little bit of time up my sleeve. The dealership is quite an eye opener with just about all of the cars in beautiful condition, beautifully detailed and beautifully overpriced - but that's the price you pay when dealing with a niche dealership. I mean, really, it is up to the individual to decide what is an acceptable price, but I certainly could not fault their preparation and ultra professional presentation. If one wants a really nice car, and as long as warranty conditions are acceptable, one could well consider doing business with them. There would have been probably thirty to forty cars on display, all very nicely presented. Their website does show details of all cars on display, and if one has a bit of time up their sleeve, have a look - it's worthwhile.

There were many cars I would like to claim ownership for, such as a $30K. 500CL Coupe, as well as a DS5 Citroen Sport and another Citroen C5, both Sedans in immaculate condition. Regards Styria

The Classic Throttle Shop has never been shy of asking outrageous prices; and it loves to indulge in ostentatious prose:
"With obscure but somehow cohesive design queues ...grounded by optional leather seat trim...the correct and mint condition crush pile carpets."
Oh really? Someone missed his/her calling here.
Regards,
Brian
