(On a lighter note), it says "GENUINE BUYER CON" in the ad! Does that translate to Caveat emptor??

I wonder which scientist made such an offer to him... So he feels if 15 is offered why not 27. I say why not 30 to make it round figure

I've seeked a W124 E Coupe (2-door), in a fairly good condition. However, the car has been dieselised and the original petron engine is not available. I had two questions (1) What would you believe is the right price for this car? and (2) What is the cost of getting the original petrol engine that went into this car?

In a nut-shell is this car restorable?
Hi All,

Does anyone now have an idea of a c124 available for sale? I am keen on buying one, any help would be much appreciated

No I mean the coupe version of W124, which is also called the C124 or CE-Class.

Hello All ,

Back on this thread after a long time , below please find price as quoted for various cars - if I do not get them - no regrets :

By the way , I always use a middleman - it helps both the buyer and seller :

Instructions to the middleman :

Rs 15000 - Rs 18000 for the car pictured

Regards
Chauhan

Wow, a car cheaper than a bike. What would be the value of metal as scrap? BTW, is that a car or its skeletal remains.
Actually quite clever, this being a convertible. Hope you get her

Interesting thread. I read it carefully.

In the end any price for any car is totally subjective. If the buyer feels the car is worth it, that's what he/she will pay. Whatever the rest of the world thinks. Nobody is putting a gun to your head and is making you pay. It's everybody's own decision.

I'm always a little curious about why you people are so hung up on the value. Either you feel its appropriate or you don't. Who cares what others think. If you buy a classic as an investment it might be different. If you're just a petrol head that like a particular car/brand/model why don't just buy. Who cares about what it will be worth in ten years?

I only worry about what I can afford now. I enjoy my classic cars as much as I can. If I ever sell them, I will see what I get for them. It doesn't worry me now.

Each to its own of course, but try and live in the presence is my motto. What happens next is difficult to predict at best so why worry?

SOS call out to the Mercedes experts on the thread. What would be the right price to pay for a 1972 W115. Its a Right Hand Drive. The gentlemen who is selling lives in the neighbourhood and claims to be the second owner (I didn't get to see the papers). He has restored cars in the past and seems to have done fair amount of work on the car - does not need an immediate restoration - there was limited space in his garage to move around, but did't seem to have any major rust issues. The best part all trimmings are except for a couple of chrome bits are on and a little shy of gleaming.

Now the catch, the gentleman claimed the car was originally a petrol (200) and he replaced the engine with a 240 diesel. However the car had all the elements of a 250 diesel (had a double bumper). I have good reason to believe it was a 250, need help in checking if it still is one. What should I look out for in the engine bay that would confirm that its a 250?

Also, need urgent advice on the price - if it is a 250 indeed and also what would be a good amount to pay in case its had an engine swap?

Many thanks in advance.
