1973 MB 280 SEL

hello. i have a 1973 280 SEL that i will be selling and am attempting to find out its worth.
car has about 110K on it and needs new valve seats. smokes pretty good on start ups. runs and drives very well and the interior is very nice except for some minor issues. headliner sagging a little and a rip in the side of the drivers seat.
the body was restored 15 years ago and it has sat since then. so there is some blistering, etc here and there on the vehicle.
i know it is hard to give me a value for this vehicle without images. i still have it in the barn, but will take it out this month and snap some pics of it.
thanks very much,

It's worth two camels, four pigs and a chicken. Want that in yen?

In some cases it might be worth more over one side of a river to another. Best bet is check your local markets, vehicle auctions and that sort of thing.

driving a fast car should feel like falling off a building.
