I think that car is well worth fixing, provided that what you told us is everything wrong with it. Yes it's old but it is a vintage during which design, materials, and engineering were all "cost no object". That is also to say it was made before the bean counters and competitive market conditions cheapened the MB brand somewhat.
I'd also recommend that you get a quote from a reputable Indy shop that knows Mercedes. To my way of thinking, $1100 is not an unreasonable sum of money if your car is "up to snuff" when they are finished.
