How should I sell an inherited 'classic' Mercedes-Benz?

I have inherited a 1996 Mercedes-Benz C180 Elegance Automatic in good condition with less than 70K recorded mileage. It is surplus requirements and I would welcome your advice on the best method of sale in the current market.

If you feel the car has some classic appeal the best option may be to sell to an enthusiast audience, such as a Mercedes-Benz owners club, forum or social media group. We would also suggest using these resources to try and gauge a good price for the vehicle, as it is frequently more about what someone is prepared to pay for a vehicle rather than its open market value when looking at an enthusiast audience.
