what is a 72 220d worth?

I have a 72 220d with 80k miles- I'm considering selling it, but have absolutely no idea what it is worth. I just can't find anything anywhere comparable. Most 220d's I've seen have hundreds of thousands of miles on them.

The car is very straight with only a little rust spotting on one quarter panel, it could use some paint, a headliner, etc- nothing major except for maybe the thumping in the driveshaft that keeps it from being a daily driver... any ideas?

I'm thinking of just driving it down to the vintage Mercedes show next year and see what gets offered. I don't really have the time to restore the car myself since I'm currently building my midlife crisis convertible racecar, and refurbishing a HUD house.
(near Dallas)

Any suggestions would be muchly appreciated.

Low mileage would actually be the biggest worry. Cars not regularly driven gain more corrosion-related issues, than those used as a daily drivers.
Did you consider ebay? It is the biggest flee-market in the World.
I can't imagine better place to sell unique item. List it with reserve price you are comfortable with and see what happens. I always started listing with $1 even on $100,000 motorhome. Everybody suppose to have some fun and emotions even when no sale will happen.
