It would be helpful if you'd attach pics.
Regarding the 280SE, try nada.com as a baseline for classic car values. An "established" value and fair market price may be two different things though. Typically, a very nicely kept 280 can run upwards of $5000, perhaps more. The highest I ever saw one was $19k, but it was absolutely pristine/perfect/totally restored. The lower end 280's, with faded paint, crappy interior, poorly running engine, etc I've seen priced for $400.
Do I understand correctly that you're selling the 280?
