Post 1987 MB 300e w/43,000 miles

Just curious. I have an '87 300e w/ 43,000 original miles on it. I am the second owner, and the car is in excellent condition. What is something like this worth?? Any help is much appreciated. I am located in Central Illinois. The car is complete from window sticker to the first aid kit, as well as original tool kit.

It's worth whatever someone is willing to pay! If the car's 100% original and everything is truly excellent, the price could probably be anywhere between 4k to 14k! I'd do some research online if I were you to get an idea of its full worth.

Heh, was just making the point that there's an extremely wide range of prices when selling private party.

True that. My '93 300e was purchased 5 years ago with 59K, 1 owner, & spotless for $6000. I'd figure a, '87 in today's market should not surpass 6K and more likely 4K...

Garage
Just as a gauge I bought a clean 2 owner '86 300e

64k miles, SoCA car since new for $3600.00 four years ago. spent about $2000 fixing exhaust system, valve stem seals, etc. As you know all the rubber and plastic is 25 y/o now and has likely survived midwestern winters unless owned by snow birds who left it in a heated garage and went to FL! body condition will determine price, most prefer 90-up cars: more leather and wood, softer bushings, convenience circuit, wide cladding, but they make great drivers and I have driven I-10 from santa monica to indian wells ca many times at speeds that are very, very illegal. they are great highway cars! enjoy.
