Non-running 6.3's that seem visually similar to yours have sold recently for around 10-15k on the major sites, and privately for even less.

You could easily dump 10-20k in parts into any W109 just to get it running and drivable, not even getting into bodywork and accessories. Just the air suspension alone is around 5-6k to have all the major parts rebuilt, and that's just to have the car stay up, not even getting into the rest of the suspension or steering, so be warned.

The body isn't really any different from any other w109 so if the parts that are actually unique to the 6.3, such as the motor, are shot beyond repair then the value as a parts car is not much greater than a regular w109.

I've got a chance to possibly buy a 1969 300SEL 6.3! Any idea what a non running not rusted out one would be worth? Even as a parts car?
Get yourself a regular W108 or W111 coupe and enjoy it as a daily driver ... the W109 is a headache and quite costly to repair..

If you can get it under $8000 USD you should be able to break even or make money. To be safe, I suggest trying to get if for $5000 or under.

Do you enjoy working on old (and complicated) cars?

Do you know why it was left for so long in a non-running condition?

It’s an estate auction in the California desert. Not sure why it was left out there. It’s an online auction and bidding is up to $1800. I’ll watch and see where it goes. I’ve restored a Land Cruiser and like wrenching. It’s therapeutic
