: With a $10,000 cap you might be looking for a 450SL instead. 380's
: are (in Atlanta) going for $12,500 on the low end with 560's starting
: at $15-17,000.
In Columbia, S.C., I paid $11,000 for my 380SL six months ago. It was a
steal! And FWIW the timing chain had just been replaced with a double
chain. However, if I let the local M-B dealership replace my power steering
box then I'm looking at a $1,750 bill. But *that*
ain't gonna happen.
