Based on the pictures, I retract my 2-3k estimate and put it at about $500-$1000. The rust is fairly extensive, the interior is shot, and the mileage is most likely NOT accurate. These odometers have a near 100% failure rate, and its probably rolled over once or twice. You have absolutely no documentation to back up the fact that the engine is "a baby".
No one is surprised that the fuel pump didn't solve it. Sitting ruins these cars, and bringing a W108 sedan back in this condition would cost 2-3 times more than a mint one is worth.
Even on the incredible chance you get it running, it will never be worth your asking price unless you find a fool.
Don't quit your day job. Oh wait, you don't have one. Just a college student with too much testosterone, and no idea what he's doing or talking about.
The entertainment value of this thread has been amazing.
