Whats a well worn W115 go for these days?

I purchased this 72 220D (240D motor swap) a while back and have been slowly reviving it.

Honestly it hasn't need anything more than the typical suspension/fluids/rubber parts that typical 40+ year old vehicles need.

Vehicle spent most of its life in texas so there is very little rust, which would be the main reason I purchased it.

Currently, It's my reliable daily driver and I do enjoy driving it. There is quite a bit of patina (which I personally like) on the exterior and interior.

Creme MB tex, Green exterior, sunroof + 4 speed manual trans.

Thoughts on what this thing might go for? I'm looking to get into either a gas engined 123 coupe or sedan or 300CD. Located in Philadelphia.

Rencent services include:

Fresh Oil + filter
Fresh Trans fluid + shifter bushing rebuild
Fresh Diff oil
1 New rear axle
New ball joints in the front
4 new tires
new oil cooler lines
new power steering lines + fluid
new air filter
new glow plugs
rebuilt injectors
new fuel lines + filters
dropped fuel tank and cleaned out
(4) new shocks

Where in Philly are you located?
I'm in pretty far south Philly with my own 220D. Yours looks cleaner than mine (mine has some sheet metal rust) and if the engine is tight yours should go for $3000+. I wish I could buy it! I'd love to check it out though. If you want to get rid of that roof rack, I'm in the market.

The 115 will be worth Whatever you can get for it!

The OP asked:

"Whats a well worn W115 go for these days?"

To paraphrase Bob Dylan, the answer is blowin' in the market. Put it on the block.
The dilettantes will not have the answer.
