Need opinion on value of Mercedes 450 SL

I'm handling the estate of a friend of mine and would appreciate any opinions you might offer on the value of a 1979 450SL. Silver/red/black cloth top/detachable hardtop 42,xxx miles, original owner. Assuming this car is in good working order what do you think a buyer might pay. Thanks.

Registry
between $ 3,000 and $ 4,000 assumming no cancerous rust, no missing components on interior..and unmolested wheels / lenses ( lost of these cars had them swap for 560 wheels / lenses )
However, I have seen one of those sell for $ 7,000 with that mileage and in pristine condition.

Check Hemmings. I think the 450s command higher money than the 380sl that came after it.

If it is rust free and has a nice interior and top, you could see 10k for that car.

Too bad it is not local to me, I have a friend who has been looking for a nice one for a couple years now.
