What's your issue here Brad, are you insinuating that I'm a deceptive sales person? And with who I am employed with as a salesperson, may I ask?

Back to the facts, the seller does not have a 107-026.

I know of the chap with the murdered black 560SEL as he replied to one of my Gumtree ads and came to check out some wheels I was selling.

He purchased it from WA, paid $1500, it was originally a metallic blue, but paint had severely faded on roof and boot. He then vinyl wrapped car, cost ~$3000. The interior is grey and as in decent condition, but at the time the speedo was inoperative.

Yours is a 3 speed auto, 500SLC s have a 4 speed auto.
If the top radiator hose connects to the radiator on the passenger side, you have a 450SLC not a 5 litre
If you persist with your intent to pass this car off as anything other than a decent 450SLC you risk the possibility of being prosecuted for false advertising.
It appears to be a very nice car but no way 107-026.

Yes, the aluminium trailing arms may have been in error, but was he to know?

"Mine is the 1 and only 500SLC to be ever full time registered in Australia"

How come?




Not sure if false advertisement laws apply to auctions or one-off sales.
Also not sure why the heartache over what is not first, last nor the only falsely advertised product.

I think WA is the only state you can fully register a LHD...... like the rest of the world!! Well at least i know UK and at least parts of Europe don't care where your steering wheel is.

Can you drive it anywhere in Australia Giles?

You used to be able to fully register in NT also. IIRC there was a guy in Lennox Head who drove around in a LHD w201 around 10 years back....used to bug me, as he clearly didn't live in NT and was cruising around the North Coast with his s'board on the roof, smiling away.....ok I've got that out now... :whistle:

As far as I'm aware the other 107-026's in Oz are on Historic licensing, perhaps due the new regs that allow log book kept days. The version we have in WA is very limited in where and when you drive the car. I may revert to this but in the interim I can drive the car anywhere, anytime. This includes interstate as far as I'm aware.

That's pretty funny - made me laugh. For a fraction of that you could find an original becker and it makes better noises too. But i guess if your data card doesn't have a radio and you need to get it right...... The really hard part is finding original 1960's compressor air to put in the tyres!

Judging the photos of just the console area, I'm not sure the whole car would be worth that.

That looks like a piece from another car with a boot badge stuck on it .And it's broken on one end which is why he only wants $650 for it.

The radio blank-out plate emblems are quite a bit smaller than boot badges. The 250CE badge would be particularly rare in the US, since that model wasn't offered there, and this emblem was only found on cars that were ordered without a radio. I found one a couple of years ago for my car, which was still in the original MB packaging. I thought $40 was a good deal, but I'm not sure I would have paid much more. To be honest, in the past 4 1/2 years that I have owned my coupe, this one on ebay is only the second one I've ever seen for sale. A bit steep, though (comically so).

Maybe the ad title is a misprint. Down towards the end it reads "This Mercedes-Benz ML500 Luxury is exceptional value at $9888. This car has been certified as roadworthy.

Price is negotiable, 9888 including RWC. I am willing to keep this car if the price is not satisfied.
."

That seems a little more reasonable.

Ahh yes, figured I couldn't afford it so didn't click the read more button.... The same typo is also repeated a second time in the description.

Seller wants $319K for a 88 560SL. Seller has provided very little information to back up claim vehicle has done 32K, no details of vehicle provenance, service history, etc.
