1971 Mercedes-Benz 600

The Mercedes-Benz 600 falls into the category of a cars that I totally love, but have zero interest in owning. Maybe if I won the Powerball for 2.2 billion I could swing buying one and the maintenance on it, but even then it might be pushing it. I’ve gone in pretty deep about what it is like to own a 600 and I honestly think it is cheaper in the long run to bring home triplets from the hospital vs. bringing home a 600. At least there is a chance the babies can take care of you when you are old while the needs of a 600 never stop.

Naturally, that brings me to check out this 1971 up for sale in California. It doesn’t have a famous owner or an interesting story (that I could find) nor does it have any crazy options that makes it stand out. It is a straight-forward 600 in average condition. The best part about it? The price is pretty attractive considering what these usually are listed for.

Hello to all eBayers!
I have been with eBay for several years and I want to keep my reputation here 100% positive. I am a private collector, who has endless passion for classic cars and trucks. 90% of the vehicles have been rented out to movies commercials or high-class parties. Right now, I’m liquidating my collection since I’m selling my warehouse.
Are you an old vehicles connoisseur looking for classic/vintage vehicles without having to pay luxury prices? You are in the right place! I know that magic feeling when the right quality meets the right price, so I sell my vehicles worldwide at the most reasonable prices.
This vehicle has a clear Texsas title. If you need to get a CA title for this vehicle, I can help you with that for an additional fee.

This 1971 looks is a nice example and does have a cool little touch that isn’t very common. If you look on the front fenders, you can see the bases where a flag pole would sit. Does this mean this was some kind of president or diplomat car? Maybe. I dug though all the records I could find and didn’t see anything about this car being used as such, but is it possible. It also is possible that these flag pole bases were added at some point in the cars life as the 600 and most older S-Classes had a part number for these that you could simply buy straight from Mercedes. Sadly, these parts have been discontinued for a number of years now, so who knows what the story is with the flags. The rest of the car looks pretty good but it does have the chip in the windshield and a major dent in the trunk lid. I’m sure a good body shop could take care of that without much problem, but it is probably not a great idea just to fill it with Bondo and call it a day. The seller is really light on any kind of description for this W100 so any potential buyer would really need to do some due diligence if you are thinking about this one.

This car is priced at $72,000 which I think is a fair ask for this car. Lots of sellers ask over $100,000 for these cars now simply because of the lure and history that they carry but I’m not buying it. All the value is in the condition and service history with these and not just how much bravado you can stir about the car. The giant dent in the trunk lid puts a little bit of a damper on this car as usually the people who buy these usually want them to be as close to perfect as possible, but it probably isn’t a deal breaker. Either way, a cool car at a fair price that should find a home sooner or later.

  1. The 600 master Karl M has new OEM flagholders up at his place in Wausau Wi.

  2. @Erich. How many thousands of dollars does he want for them?

  3. The company that makes them still has them available for this and a number of other Mercedes models, including the W140. I can’t recall exactly where they are, but I believe it was one of the Nordic countries. The Mercedes OE ones were about $1200/pair when they were still available. Buying them from the OEM supplier was considerably cheaper.

  4. I just dug up my notes and the flag poles with mounts for the W140 were a part number 1408100984 and 1408100884. NLA from Mercedes, but when you could get them they were about $900 list.

    Understand that the OE flag poles had neat tristars on the tops of them, too. The ones you get today don’t have this little accent, unfortunately.
