Good prices to pay for Mercedes

I am looking into buying my first car with my own money that I have been working a while for (so you can expect me to take good care of whatever I purchase). I am in need of a few numbers on what I would pay for a number of Mercedes in decent condition and numbers for Mercedes in great condition. Any additional relevant information (such as known issues, cost of parts, MPG, etc) you can give me would be greatly appreciated. I know location can affect price but don't worry about that if you can contribute.
W201 1987 190D Turbo
W201 190E Cosworth (Best Year?)
W126 or W140 300/350SD or SDL (Best years for each?)
W124 300D (Best year? Best engine?)
W126 500/560SEC (would opt for smaller engine versions like the 300SEC if those are better)
W460/463 G-Wagen (best engine for each, best year for each). For this I am not looking for a soft top version and I know price will vary between the chassis.
And for fun (won't get one yet atleast), what would I expect to pay for a 1960s to 1980s Unimog?
Thanks for any information you can give me

WOW. Long spread between 190 and G-Wagen or Unimog
I figured out the best bang for the buck come in W210. Looks like you are diesel-focused, while MB diesels in US are at high premiums.
The truth is that gasoline engine in W210 will give you better mpg, than diesel in W201 and you can buy a car with gas engine much cheaper and much easier.
Looks like you are doing your homework before sinking the cash BRAVO.
