1983 Mercedes 380SEL info needed

Hello. I have located another Mercedes I am considering, as the local diesel was sold. I have located a 1983 380SEL (large sedan) with 109K in the $2000-$2500 range. Car is in excellent shape except clock and tach are not working. Are the early 80s 3.8 V8s good engines? KBB shows the private party value of this car to only be $1700 in good condition, so even $2K is over KBB book value, as a private party is selling it. What is the maximum I should pay for this car? Any advice appreciated.

1992 Toyota Camry LE (177k miles)
1972 Chevrolet Caprice Kingswood Estate 9-passenger wagon (44k miles)
1973 Pontiac Grand Ville 4-dr hardtop sedan (94k miles)
1988 Mercedes 300SEL (was mine, now mothers)
