Wink Value?? 1992 300D 62k original miles possibly FOR SALE

Hi guys. I am asking for the forums assistance to try and get an idea what my car is worth. I have a figure on what I think, but rather than influence your opinion, I want to hear what you think.
I have a 1992 300D 2.5 turbo diesel with 62k original miles.
Car is extremely clean and all services are up to date. Car recently rcvd. the full 60k service plus replaced glow plug relay, rear muffler, serpentine belt, and drive shaft flex disks at same time.
Car is a very shiny desert beige paired with a creme beige leather interior. Body has had NO paint work and with the exception of a few very minor blemishes and touch ups, it is in fantastic shape. Interior is very near perfect.
Mechanically this car is wonderful, everything and I mean everything, works. No leaks of any kind. A/C was serviced last summer and is ice cold. Michelin Tires have less than 20k on them. I would drive this car cross country tomorrow without any hesitation.
When I do drive the car I get approx 34 MPG with A/C off, about 32 MPG with A/C on.
With all that being said, I am considering selling. You might ask why??? Because I have a Volvo wagon that is my daily driver, and too many toys.
Toy #1 Infiniti M30 convertible
Toy #2 VW Westphalia camper
Toy #3 a Vulcan classic motorcycle
and the wife has a Murano.
My insurance man is setting up his retirement plan off of me!
My Benz just does not get driven.
I would consider trading down for cash plus a MB wagon gas or (prefer) diesel in good/excellent condition. This would allow me to sell my Volvo wagon too.. (part with 2 cars, replace with 1) = lower insurance bill and gain garage space!

I have attached some pictures but if you want to see more, please let me know and I can email them.

I have considered listing on eBay or elsewhere on the web but am not sure I am ready to part ways with my beloved Benz.

If you have interest is purchasing and want to know more, please PM me your name and phone number and I will be happy to call you so we can discuss. I also have no hesitation in putting you in touch with my mechanic. I live in New Mexico between Albuquerque and Santa Fe and the car is being stored in central Albuquerque.
See how little it is used, it is stored in a garage 25 miles from my home!

Thanks in advance for your help.
