Well, it depends in what you want to have in your garage.
If you want a running W113 but no concours winner (and nothing close to that), maybe, with 20.000$ you can make it run truly nice and have something reliable and honest to fullfill your Pagode motoring desires.
But if you want a concours winner, a W113 that ticks all the correct boxes, be prepared for a 140.000$ and two-year ground-up restoration. Thats the cost of having a spot on, perfectly restored W113, and starting with a purchase cost of 3000$ is a way better starting point than paying 15.000$ for something rotten and abused that still runs, in por state, but does.
Go on with it, you cant go wrong with a 3000$ purschase of an almost complete car.
