My parents' first (and only) SUV.My first vehicle was a Travelall with the 345.
That's strong money.
In my little circle of Mercedes lovers, we call it BATCrack (Bring A Trailer pricing on crack).
The last time one of us sold a car there it wasn't totally on crack, but he got $13,800 for a car he would have cheerfully sold for $9k.
loved the cornbinders,but rust was I H s achillies heelMy parents' first (and only) SUV.
Was either a 1970 or a 1971. Traded in on a 1973 F100.
Looking back I think dad wanted a truck, but at the time I was told they needed to dump the International because resale value was in the toilet.
He kept the F100 until it was only worth $600 private party, so much for resale values.
The year he bought a farm we did stuff with the F100 that we couldn't have done with the Travelall, then he got rid of the F100 and bought a used 3/4 ton GMC pickup.
Looking back, I'm sure they would have been better off if they'd kept the Travelall until they needed the 3/4 ton.
