1974 280S silver Mercedes. What to do

New to this forum. Hi!

I recently inherited a 1974 Silver 280S Mercedes from my dad. All his life, he took really good care of it. (I mean *really* good care) He told me I could sell it if I wanted to, but I guess it has sentimental value to me. (He let me use it ONCE for my graduation party 20 yrs ago

Anyways.. if any of you vintage Benz enthusiasts / experts have an idea of a ball park figure for this car, I would appreciate it. I just want to know. The car is in mint condition. If I do decide to keep it, is maintenance & parts really expensive? I am very limited in engine-car maintenance knowledge. I just want to use it in the summer time.

Welcome to BenzWorld! Here's a link for you: Gold Book Classic Cars. They generally return optimistic evaluations, but it should give you an idea.
