Default 1987 Mercedes 500 Series

I saw a 1987 Mercedes 500 series in the local paper today for only $900. Isn't that the top of the line and a collectors item? What does that beast have for an engine? I thought it was a 5.2 V8.

they have the 560s...they generally bring 3k+ with any miles in somewhat decent condition.

Thats good to know. I thought I could buy it, fix it up and sell it for aroud 6K. I don't have work in winter other than when the snow falls. I thought it would be a profitable project. Thankfully, I now know its not he case. Now a 91 or so 560 for $900. That would be worth it.
