1987 300SDL

I have a friend that has a 1987 300 SDL with over 275,000 miles plus. Everything works interior in good shape car has been well maintain. It does need a paint job but there is no rust.
Does anybody know what a fair price would be for it? Sorry no pics but it is silver with a silver interior.

... price is very subjective depending on condition, options, condition, repairs needed, service history, and condition...
pics will help, but you'll get prices all over the map on this.

As described with every single thing on the car still working I would think the price would be a bit higher. Possibly 3-4 thousand. Of course, if you can get it for less...
Anyone who thinks a 300D is fast drives too slow.

Pictures, etc would help. If it's a great runner with documented maintenance, and the climate control system works, you could be up to $4k. How bad the paint looks will make a difference.

If everything seems great, but it clunks a lot in the rear, that's likley to only be swaybar links, a cheap and easy fix.

key items

In Florida.........I would think working AC (all climate controls) including the defrost flap vacuum pod and working windows/sunroof would be key items. No splits on the front seats and no or very little dash cracks would help. Good tires and a maintenance history help.

I'd agree with the $3-$4K range if all the above is in working order.
