My 2 cents is that a W114 coupe is one of the most under-valued cars you can buy. For what they are, they can be dirt cheap for a really nice one. I think a point will come when the prices on these will climb, but that point hasn't happened or is just beginning to happen. In S. California I see the price to pay being $5000 or less for a really nice rust-free car. To me that's cheap for what you are getting. There are a lot of these for much less, but I would try to buy the best one you can.
