I have an 85 380SE. It's a good car - a little slow off the line - but it rides great on the highway and has all the toys you'll need. The pre-1984 cars had a single-row timing chain that should have changed under warranty to a double-row. If it hasn't been changed, it needs to be or the old one might snap and detonate the engine. If the car has the books, it should indicate. As far as price, you really can't go by the book value. If the car has been maintained and looks good, it could be worth $4000-$5000 as a private party sale. Make sure the a/c works properly.
