Rebuilt or Used Engine?

I'm about to put an engine in a 1986 560SL. Given the choice between spending $2700 on a good used engine (79K miles) or $6,000 on a rebuilt one, which would you rather do?

In other words, in your educated opinions, is a rebuilt engine worth twice the price of a good used engine?
