New owner of 92 300e 4matic, Hello! Got a question

Hello all,

Just happy to say my mom is finally giving me her Benz. I first asked her for it a decade ago, she's finally relinquishing it to me.
I don't actually have the car in my possession, yet. It's still at my moms, I'm scheduling the transportation now. I will post pics as soon as I get it though.
I'm told the hood needs replacing due to oxidation or some kind of damage.

I'm looking forward to tooling around with the car, and getting to know all of you.

I think it's a 92, but it may be 93.
300e Sedan
Black and Tan
4Matic
146k Miles.

Question:
I'm trying to estimate the value of the car, but I can't find 4Matics for sale anywhere. Is this because they are rare, or are they just not that desirable?

I may or may not sell it, leaning toward not, but it would be nice to know.

On that subject, should I mod it at all, or just keep it original? I was thinking wheels and suspension - is that blasphemy

Thanks for the info.

Welcome to BW and congrats on the car. That is known as a W124 and you should ask your question(s) there. Just scroll down from here and look in the sedans section. From what I've heard the early 4matics had their share of problems and I think you are correct when you postulated they are rare or undesirable. Good Luck.
