The problem is that there are lots of good examples for sale in the $2000 - $4000 price range. The cost of fixing an inexpensive W108 up is way higher than what you can buy a good one that someone else has fixed up. So if it doesn't have nice paint, nice interior, runs, no rust, it's basically a $500 parts car. If it does have nice paint, nice interior, no rust, and it runs it's in the $2000 - $4000 range. If it has all of those AND it is really exceptionally nice paint and interior and low miles, etc, then it gets into some real money. But for a nice driver I think you are looking at $2000 to $4000 AND having lots of competition from other sellers at that price.
that's my 2 cents.
