fair market value

i recently bought a 98 c230 and have decided i want to either move to a later model c class or go with an older 190e and use some of the money to finish my 944 turbo project, so my question is what is the typical value on a car like this, i cant go off what i paid for it because it wasn't running when i bought it so i got it dirt cheap. it has 104k on it the body and interior are flawless, it just needs some tint. everything on craigslist is 3500-6500 and all looks close to the same to me, i dont wanna under value it and loose out on what its worth, if you were in my shoes where would you start?

Kelley blue book will give you a good idea on what it may be worth and where to start. Majority of car buyers use KBB.

If you're trying to sell on CL, ask high/retail BB. It's unreasonable and you won't get that, but at least the negotiations will start higher.
