I am thinking about purchasing a W126 Mercedes (1988-1991) and considering what level of "resto-moding" would be considered "OK" without destroying value. Also, I need to here of some recent purchases to help me determine where the market is on a 300SE/300SEL/420SEL in excellent condition. Thank you.
“Resto-moding ” of any classic Mercedes generally means lowering the value of the car. Most buyers of classic Mercedes vehicles prefer OEM equipment and styling. One exception I have noted with classic cars in general - classic Corvettes which have been resto-moded have at times sold at auction for more than a fully restored model.
