How much is my 1993 Mercedes-Benz 190 worth?

I've got a tatty 1993 Mercedes-Benz 190 with a full MoT (though it has some advisories) and full service history. It has a rust hole in the front offside wing, a dodgy paint job on the rear nearside passenger door, and a crack in the windscreen. Any ideas what it might be worth? Would it make any difference if I got the door repainted and the hole in the wing fixed?

Although Mercedes-Benz 190 make a great choice for a modern classics, they've still got a lot of ground to make up when it comes to prices. As such, projects can be had for as little as £500 while on-the-road examples in need of TLC tend to go for about £1250 - £1750. Head over to a dealer and you'll be paying £3000+ for the best examples. Have a look at some vehicles similar to yours and get some quotes in for the work you need. You might find that you'd be better off trying to sell it as it is - or you might find that investing some money in it now could pay dividends when the time comes to sell.
