    As the title says really. Is there a resource (site/book/etc) that I can use to find the original list prices (preferably covering 70s, 80s, 90s) for classic cars, and in particular for Mereces Benzes of that area. Irish prices would be ideal but UK is ok too. Thanks!

    I'm not aware of any online sources of period prices. SIMI produced car price lists in the 1980's - scans of which some members have posted on this forum in the past.

    The 'Motor Trade Price Guide' also has Irish price lists. Sometimes copies of this publication turn up at autojumbles. Likewise period UK publications 'Black Book', 'Parkers Price Guide' etc have relevant prices lists (new and secondhand).

    These sometimes turn up on ebay (see link) -
