Part 3 of 4





Just past the Jaguars sat a group of Mercedes-Benz cars.





The black sedan on the left is a 1988 560SEL with 67k miles.  Asking price was $12,900.





I also liked the two very similar W113 SL-Class roadsters.  The W113 body was produced from 1963 - 1971.





This somewhat subdued 2002 Mercedes-Benz E-Class is actually an E55 AMG.  This was the final year of the non-supercharged E-Class that had"only" 349 hp which was good for "only" a 13.1 second quarter mile, (the 2003 E55 added a supercharger and 120 additional horsepower and would go 12.2 seconds).  
 




The asking price on this 42k mile car was $22,900.

Part 4 of 4





A beautiful 1956 Mercedes-Benz 190SL Roadster was sitting in front of the door to the showroom behind the E55 above.  I don't have a price labeled on my photo.  But these early SL-Class roadsters can sell for well into the 6 figures depending on the quality of the restoration and accompanying documentation.





I moved from the elegant and sophisticated Mercedes-Benz across the upper lot to the giant old iron from Detroit.  This 1976 Cadillac Eldorado convertible showed 82k miles and was listed for $14,900.  The hubcaps look like they are from a 1967 - 70 Eldorado, but look great on this car.  I'd own it for that price.





Next to the Eldorado sat a 1964 Pontiac Catalina convertible.





This car was 421-powered, although I'm not sure which one, (three were available - single 4bbl 320 hp, three 2bbls 350 hp, and three 2bbls 370 hp), and also had the 8-lug wheels.  Asking price for the 44k miles car was $16,900.





Next in line was a 1965 Buick Electra 225 convertible with 80k miles and also listed for $16,900.  This is a relatively rare car with only 8,505 being produced that year.  The 4 "VentiPorts" on the front fender distinguished the luxury Electra from the mid-level LeSabre which only had 3.





Next to the Buick was a 1974 Cadillac Coupe de Ville with 8k original miles.  Asking price was $14,770.  





And finally, this 1964 Cadillac Eldorado convertible is one of only 1,870 produced that year.  





Cadillac offered two convertibles in 1964, the Deville and Eldorado.  Both cars were identical with the exception of interior and exterior trim and ornamentation.  But the Eldorado cost $1,000 more.  So it's not hard to imagine why only 1,870 Eldorado convertibles were sold that year compared to 17,900 Deville convertibles.  





This car showed 42k original miles on the odometer and was listed for $34,900.
