Small Bumpers – 1973 Mercedes 450 SEL

February 26, 2014

As a follow-up to the cheap-meat W116 Mercedes 280SE from late last year, there are other options out there for you if you’re put off by the questionable origin of that car, albeit at a much higher price. Incidentally, that car is now down to all of $450, with a bit more of a realistic description of the car’s needs. And that puts today’s feature car at a significant multiple of the cheap-meat one – you’ll pay 8.5 times the price to have a car you won’t have to smog that’s also said to be in good condition. Check out this 1973 Mercedes 450 SEL, for sale for $3800 in Sacramento, CA.

Woohoo, Cheap Meat! 1977 Mercedes 280SE

January 6, 2013

Update, 1/6/14: Now down to $595, and a link to the article from SFGate, it’s not obvious from reading the new listing why this car is not selling. Anybody have details?

Original post, 12/19/13: Sometimes, deals seem too good to be true, and other times, they look good but likely true. Such is the case with today’s car – in fact, cheap luxury cars seems to be today’s theme – a 1977 Mercedes 280SE for sale in Morgan Hill, CA for a mere $775. It’s a European market car that’s been off the road for 9 years, although the condition gives no clue as to the reason.
