We can all dream, I suppose. This is what happens when people try to get every last penny that they spent on a car back out of it. He could get it, if he's willing to wait until the dollar suffers 300% inflation or so.. Bernard

Average retail for that model is listed at $5,100 with high retail (mint condition or restoration) is $6,250. NADA.com: Average Retail Value This vehicle would be in good condition overall. It could be an older restoration or a well-maintained original vehicle. Completely operable. The exterior paint, trim, and mechanics are presentable and serviceable inside and out. A "20-footer". High Retail Value This vehicle would be in excellent condition overall. It could be a completely restored or an extremely well maintained original vehicle showing very minimal wear. The exterior paint, trim, and mechanics are not in need of reconditioning. The interior would be in excellent condition. Note: This value does not represent a "100 Point" or "# 1" vehicle *.

The 1984 on NADA has a high retail of $7,100, compared to the 1981's $5,100. Auttrader online had 22 1984 300D's listed for sale http://autotrader.com/findacar/results.jtmpl?model00D&start_year 84&end_year84&min_price=&max_price=&distance=any&certified=n&advanced=y&advcd_on=n&make=MB&address0238&search_type=used&x &y=8
Only one car listed was under the $1650 you listed, and it was $200 for a wrecked one. Most were well over $1650. Some of the prices are: $8500 $6995 $6800 $6500 $5500 $5400 (3 at that price) $5200 (2 at that price) $4500 $4250 $3900 $3550 $3400 $3000 $2950 $2660 $2000 $1975 $1800 Now who is closer?

Those are asking prices. If you look at completed sales on ebay there's two 84 300D's. One that sold for $1575 and one that sold for $2600.
Other year 300D's actual selling prices this past on week on ebay:
1985: $850, $1,525, $1,700, $2,032, $2,650, $4,995 1983: $350, $2,501, $3,650, $4,051 1982: $1,350, $2,025, $2,425 1981: $3,501, $3,551, $4,049 (not sold, reserve not met) 1980: $900.00, $1,276, $1,326, $2,025, $2,150
The higher priced cars have things like new motors or very low milage.
I can show you a car that almost got 5 grand, but I've yet to see one that got 6. The almost 5K car sold with a buy it now to a zero feedback bidder. Sketchy.
$2000 seems to be the median price. Knock off $100 per defect. Add $1000 for each 50K iles the car doesn't have under 250K and you're about there.

My girlfriend just bought a 1984 300d turbo off of a lot, no less, for 2200. just under 200k, beautiful condition with the exception of a bit of clear coat cloudiness on the roof. this was not an exceptional deal, she had been looking for about two weeks, and did not want to wait for a better deal. This is in Seattle, so it's not really the cheapest market. But, someone has to pay retail. I guess I just don't like to be the one.

I often wonder when i see a Mercedes diesel that had the engine replaced but only has about 200,000 on the car. They are suppose to be so tough and long lasting and this seem to be replaced very early. The transmissions i hear last about 200-250,000, but the engines should last much longer. Should that be a red flag to buyers instead of an incentive?

A couple weeks ago, I bought a '81 300TD off of ebay and payed $1785. The car is in mint condition, both inside and out, and has 200k miles. ...and it included a Sony 10 CD changer and Thule bike and ski racks.
