W113 auction sales - market comps
« on: June 07, 2019, 18:51:49 »
Hello everyone,

My name is Juan and I am one of the guys behind CLASSIC.COM — we recently added the W113 to our classic car market analytics platform, and I thought that this would be the perfect place to get feedback on it.

I’d be honored if you take a look and let me know what you think of it — all feedback welcome!  And if you want updates when we find new W113's for sale, or new price alerts, feel free to "follow" the market.

Hi Juan,

Welcome to the site.  I like the format for your data.  It is easy to navigate and interesting supporting data.

You may want to revisit your production numbers for all three models, 230, 250 and 280.  It would appear you have listed car volumes exported to the US, not total production.

Total production numbers can be found in the technical section under data cards, etc.

Thanks for posting the link. :)

Hey Norm - those charts were a bit confusing for us, but we took our best shot at updating the info. Let us know if we got it completely wrong?  :-\

Much better!

I believe the reference in the technical manual is to Engelen, whose book, Mercedes-Benz 190 SL - 280 SL is a pretty good source.

Good format, like it a lot.

Interesting looking at the average prices paid.

230SL 16 sales average $47.69K
250SL 06 sales average $82.32K
280SL 28 sales average $78.36K

The 250 is top dog based on these figures, interesting.
Mercedes 250SL    1967
Mercedes 250SLK  2014
Alfa Romeo 166 3.2 Ti
Fiat 500
