Michel's car is of course a euro, which would be of appeal to some prospective buyers.  THe red grille is a bit hard to swallow, but at least we know it was a quality paint job and interior work.  I would prefer it in its original Milan, but still an attractive option for someone in the market. 

'76 6.9 Euro, '78 6.9 AMG, '80 280SE, '74 350SE, '82 500SEL euro full hydro, '83 500SEL euro full hydro , '81 500SL

The fact that nobody has bought this car yet is a good indication of the market... as in practically non existent unless you list it for a very low price.

dunno about that TJ.  if im spending 20k on a 40 year old classic, im not going to buy a car that deviates a lot from the original.  we aren't so good over here due to our isolation.   gotta be positive!
