Post 1993 300e blown/leaking head gasket

I have an oportunity to pick up a 1993 300e MB 4dr sedan. The current owner tells me it has a blown or leaking head gasket, which doesn't scare me, the fact that its a MB scares me a little. I'm concerned about the cost and level of difficulty in getting it repaired.

I'm mech inclined (retired navy engineer), but never seen the underside of a MB hood until now.

Kelly BB lists the car at $2,200, but I'm not sure what the owner will take. I'm thinking of making him an offer because I really like the car. Other than the engine thing, the car looks very clean. CARFAX listed it in an accident in Sept 2006, but the rest of the info is clean.

If I could get this thing under $1,000, do you think it would be worth my trouble??

Please feel free to email me with any info or opinions you may have.

Thank you in advance.

Is that a M103 engine? If so, the instructions for removing the head should be on the w126 forum.
