I am trying to find information or resources on the web where I could get a feel for the price of a 1980 240D (from the SN, I figure it is a 123).<br>Any ideas?<br>Thank you.<br>Didier<br>

Online sources include Kelley's Blue Book and

some sites that list collector cars in various parts of the country. In the Washington, DC area, I keep an eye on this "market" in the Sunday classifieds. Depending on milage, rust, etc., they can go from $1,000 to asking price of around $5k for one supposedly really nice. Hope this helps...would like to find one myself. <br>

i paid 2,600 hundred for my '78 with every option, 167,000 miles, never wrecked, pretty good shape. try performance automotive out of Danbury CT, they may have some around and would give you the prices. if you cant find them online, you can e-mail me at [email protected] and i'll track down their number for you.

I'm not trying to be a smart aleck or anything, but that post was from 2001, and as a Guest. I don't think they're still around.

I just had an inquiry on my 1980 240D yesterday from an independent shop. Seems that one of his cutomers had a 240D in mind.

I paid $1500 from the original owner three years ago. After spending 9 months to totally restore it, I decided to quote a price of $8,500. Car has 162K and is in perfect "show" condition - a real beauty! I guess I really didn't want to sell it, just threw this number out there to see... The lady did not take me up on my offer - thank goodness! What did she think, that I would give it away for 4 or 5K? No way!

Hard to put a number on something so valuable...
