1987 300 TDT QUESTION any suggestions would be appreciated

Hey everyone, so my moms been secretly hiding a 300Tdt that we just recently found out about lol. Shes a hoarder and never gets rid of anything. My dad said to junk it and no one would give us even 90 dollars for it lol. So this car has 30,000 original miles and its a 7 seater. I had it towed to the shop and got a new battery, oil change and new brakes. The car started on the first crank and runs so smooth I was shocked. Its a single owner and very clean and was garage kept and the paint looks brand new. I was wondering if there was any value to this car and also what else should I get done on the car. Any suggestions would be very appreciated.

Any value?

There's one listed on Ebay at the moment that's a 1984 in similar superb condition to what you describe. That car has 188,000 miles on it.

Current bid is $10,000 with 37 bids.

For some reasons W123 gets better values than W124, but wagons are always at premium.
I had hard time to sell our 1987 300DT so there are not too many buyers for cars zooming on 30 years of age and not really consider collectible, but put it on ebay and see.
The car will show lot of rubber parts deterioration, because of age, so it will not be smooth ride without some money put in it.
Observe fuel delivery valves orings.
