    Kinda Barn find 1974 Fiat & 1959 Merc - what are they worth?

    So the story goes that my neighbour has inherited these two cars and is keen to find out what they're worth as they have no desire to keep them. Seeing as they're uncertain about their true value, they've asked me if I have a clue. The inner Swede in me is telling me to lowball them, but they're a nice couple, so the least I could do is research for historical sale data, and of course, ask PF.


    Does anyone know much about these things? Photos below.

      Merc looks to be a W180 220S

      Anywhere from $40'000 to $80'000 ?

        A Fiat 130 coupe no less, that is rare enough, but one that is not simply a pile of ferrous oxide on the floor, incredible.

          Nice, thanks guys.
          Yeah the Merc seems to have a wide price range. This particular example looks to be a bit dull on the outside, so may prove challenging to fetch top dollar.

          Is CarSales effective for these sort of cars?

            Spend $1000-1500 on a decent detail/paint correction and that's merc will probably come up a million bucks.
            solid inheritance, gorgeous cars.

                    It is a W180 220s as it has the extra window in the rear. The front bumper should be one piece and it will have twin carbs.

                    Old man has had a 56 220a with an S motor in it for over 50yrs. Value wise for what ever reason they have never really been worth decent coin while other models of similar vintage have climbed. Full resto's have always been considered a waste of money so most people in the club just tried to keep them on the road.

                    I would say it is prob worth around 20k if no rust and a runner. If it was a coupe or convertible it would be worth almost 10x that.

                    Dad is a bit of guru on these so if you have any q's shoot me a pm and can put you in contact with him.

                      No, it’s a common misconception. It’s a Lampredi designed SOHC per bank 3.2, loosely based off the SOHC 4s is the 128 and x19. Big bore, short stroke. Great engine.

                      The 130 coupe, while rare, is no where near as rare as the sedan in Australia. If it’s in top condition probably 30-35, but would likely be on the market for a while. If you were prepared to do a little more work, likely get far more money in Europe.
                      Rust is lighter than carbon fibre.

                              you can always hear them when they break and they stop the engine immediately so you can't do any more damage.
