1983 230E for sale

I have a 1983 230E that the timing chain is broken. I have had some troubles finding the part with my mechanic since the engine is not the original. This engine ran for 90K miles and I made a carfax months ago and I found that by 1989 the car had 189K miles. The history is told that it had been a taxi for the first 5 years of life. In the 90's it changed owner and settle down as a family car. At some point after a couple years the car wasn't driven for about four years, another tune up and it found me on august 2004 (with the new engine already in, which I would not know when it was changed). In August/September 2005 I broke the timing chain and my mechanic had a hard time finding the parts after that we stop looking for it and 2 months ago I decided the bring it back. At this point my mechaninc said that is better to look for a new engine, and from then I lost confidence in my mechanic skills.
I can't have it if is not running, I don't have the knowlegde to fix it and I no longer trust my mechanic.
