Figuring out a fair selling price for a 1978 300D Diesel

Good evening,

I wasn't sure whether to post this question here or in the For Sale forum. I am helping a friend sell a 1978 300D Diesel. How would I figure out what a fair selling price is for this car? The car has about 420k, the body is in good shape, and it runs. Pictures of the car can be found by clicking the URL below. Helpful feedback would be greatly appreciated.

For sure a parts car or a beater. Looks like it has been neglected and with the miles if the od works. I would have to say 500$ too....may get lucky and start off at 1000$ and take 800$....the early w123's really don't have much value unless they are low mileage and lots of service records...
