Talking Excited new Benz owner

Hello all,
I wasn't even looking for a car much less a 35yr old Mercedes Benz. This week I ran across a 1975 450SE for $1000 dollars. The condition of the car was really unbelievable and I couldn't understand why something this old and this nice was only $1000 dollars. I didn't have a clue if it was a great deal or that was the going rate. It was truely an impulse buy without any research what so ever. This evening I brought it home and started really looking at it in detail. All the thing I found wrong with it are just minor repairs. I was amazed at the quality of the car. I sat down to do some research on my new purchase and this was the first site I saw. I thought who better to ask than a Mercedes Benz enthusiasts.
The car isn't in mint condition but the gentleman that owned it over the last 35yrs treated it with a whole lot of TLC. I was curious if someone could tell me about my new car. Did I hit a grand slam or just a double. I really don't know and i'm wondering what it may be worth.
Thank you
A brand new classic Benz Fan
