German 1967 250S Rare Find or Not??

An old neighbor of mine has a German 1967 250S that has been in storage in his basement for 28 years. He is original owner and brought car with him to USA from Germany. Car is in great shape, 33,000 miles, floor shift, ac, white with leather interior. no power steering though. I want to make him an offer but have no idea of cars worth. Any suggestions

Unfortunately did not have camera with me. Just found out about car while visiting family for Thanksgiving. Old guy was an auto mechanic who also had in his basement a 32 Ford Model A pick up and a 67 Volvo 122c. I am trying to put together an offer for all 3 cars but having the most trouble establishig the worth of the 250S. Beleive me the car is very clean. Only blemishes I could see were small rust spot on bottom of driver door and crack in dash passenger side. Any idea of fair price, not much info on internet.

I just picked up a '67 250SE, Euro edition (I'm in the US) I'd say they are quite rare in the US, especially in any decent kind of shape.

Here's mine:
I got it for $2500, in almost perfect shape, which I consider a great deal. Hell, it came with an extra set of headlight lenses, those are worth a few hundred by themselves!

Leblanc,

Your car is a fine example of that year. Apparently you got an excellent deal as well. I have decided to let the current owner decide on an asking price. Although this car has only 33,000 miles, is a euro model,oringinal owner and has been in storage since 1978, I cannot justify offering him more than my research indicates.
