Description for Mercedes-Benz 300-Series 1984

*. *
I'm looking to sell my 1984 Mercedes station wagon. I get a car to play around and tinker with for a while. ($3,000 invested in parts etc.) When I'm done fixing up and playing with it I sell it and look for something new.
Currently has 292k miles and you would never know it. This car in GREAT condition. runs and idles perfectly and drives nice. Since I've purchased it I've replaced the following-
windshield
Fuel injectors
oil pan
valve cover gasket
rear calipers
new grille
headlights
bezels
refinished the wood trim on the center console
installed velour fitted seat covers
replaced all of the carpeting from a donor car in the original color
replaced the passenger side window regulator
installed all LED lights in the cluster and center console
installed a Kenwood bluetooth stereo (color matches dash lights) with a sub-woofer mounted in the center of the spare tire (Anyone who has had one of these knows how pathetic the stereo's sounded, now it's very nice to listen to)
I have also replaced the struts for the rear hatch so it stays open with no problem
brand new tires (less than 1,000 miles)
I did a complete tune up including fuel filters, oil filter, air filter, diesel purge and adjusted the valves.
Paint shines, but is not perfect. I fixed a few area's where the clearcoat was pealing and it matches nicely, but it is by no means perfect. A few dings here and there and small dent under the fuel fill area, but nothing major.
Only minor issues-
1. The rear SLS suspension works great and has no leaks BUT, it does make a banging sound sometimes and can't for the life of me figure out what it is. The shocks work and the ride is perfect so it could be a body mount. I haven't been able to diagnose it.
2. The vacuum powered locks are disconnected. There's a leak somewhere in the system but I haven't dived into working on it (yet).
3. The transmission works, but sometimes flares going into 3rd and 4th gear. It also starts off in 2nd gear UNLESS you manually put it in L and shift it manually. I had the same issue in my 1980 300TD and was related to the vacuum system (reason why the locks are disconnected).
4. A/C compressor does not work and is unplugged. Heat and auto climate system works perfectly.
5. Drivers rear window will go up and down, but doesn't like to go all the way up without a little help.
The best part of this car is there is NO RUST. This was a California and Oregon car till 2015. There's no rot, no rusting quarter panels or spare tire area, the jack points are solid and corrosion free.
It is VERY hard to find a W123 in the northeast with no rust on it. The good with this car definitely outweighs the bad.
Feel free to make an offer. The worst I can say is no. just seeing if there is another lover of these diesels who is looking to give it a good home.
