75' Mercedes 450 sel ?'s

So I have a chance to purchase a 75 450sel. The lady who has it got it from her dad when he passed. From what she told me , it's been garage kept. 99k miles on it, silver, leather interior, and runs and drives. (Has receipts for whatever maintenance was done .

She has no idea what to do with the car, nor knows what it's worth..

Any ideas on how much these cars go for ? And is the motor the 6.9?

'75 was the last year for the D-jetronic injection system and actual breaker points. There are also a set of points in the bottom of the distributor that provide a pulse to the (primitive) engine computer. If it's like my SL, the cats (actually thermal reactors) are part of the exhaust manifolds. This creates a lot of heat in the engine bay, cooking the wiring. They're a bit fiddly to work on, but if you have a good DIY streak, they can be a lot of fun.

Good Luck

Remember: It's not just a car. It's an Adventure.

Do you know what the car is worth with the mileage ? I tried looking it up and can't find a solid number
