280 Coupe Questions

Hi folks,
I'm new to this site, please excuse my ignorance of MB. I accidentally discovered a 1975 MB 280 Coupe parked in a desolate part of an acquaintance's yard. The owner tells me it runs well, though it stalls occasionally. He has offered to sell it to me for about $750, the amount he's put into the car. The vehicle appears solid for the most part, though there is some rust around the wheel well areas. Is this a fair price...I am not certain of the trim level. If all else fails and it does not suit me well, can I likely recoupe that amount by selling it over again?Can some knowledgeable fellow give me some advice? Thanks much.

Offer him $500. In the condition that car is in, you'll be putting lots of money into it to make it a daily driver.

NO problem with other brands. If you like coupes, try a W111 coupe instead. It'll hold it value a little better. Older yes, but it won't be so painful to invest money into it knowing it'll keep its value.

Check out this price guide to help you...
