Anyone know what these cars are worth?

A friend of mine has 2 old Mercedes Benz cars, and wants to trade them for my 1985 280 E. I am not sure what the 2 cars are worth, so I don't know if it would be a good deal. The 2 cars are: 1957 220 S- runs and will drive after replacing the tires, and adjusting the shifter. 1964 190 D - round headlights (I am told these are more desirable). He does not know if this car will run, but the car is complete. Both cars have very rough interiors, and a tiny bit of rust on the '64. The 57 appears to have a very straight body with no rust. I really don't need any more projects, so I am hesitant to make the trade. However, I may if there is a potential gold mine there. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Kind of an apples and oranges kind of thing. If you aren't looking for projects, I would pass on it. If they were a gold mine, he would be selling them instead of swapping them.

Not really. Although I am not looking for any more projects, I might take on the Ponton if it would be worthwhile $ wise (long term of course). My friend does not care what they COULD be worth, he just wants my 280 really bad. Being a Diesel guy, I would normally keep the 240, and not the gasser. In this case if I decide to make the trade, I would probably sell the Diesel and keep the Ponton (it has more potential). It only needs tires and the shifter adjusted to drive. I was told that a lot of engine and brake work was done a while back to get it going. Here are some phone camera photos:
