Value on these cars totally depends on condition, $ 500 for parts cars to $20k+ for a perfect, freshly maintained example. Watching SpeedTV on Friday, did any one see the 1972 300SEL/6.3 sell for only 21k at the Barret Jackson auction in Palm Beach? That is very cheap for a car that looked really nice. I guess that is the new high water mark for these cars today.

If you wish to extract the most money it would help to be a drivable car-otherwise you will not get much. If you have the rear exle rebuilt you may not recoop your investment. Get a used axle if you can to get it drivable. Then the future owner can deceide to what level to take it.
