Description for Mercedes-Benz 300-Series 1985

Hello and thanks for looking at my '85 300D Turbo Diesel.
Starts, stops, blinkers, sunroof etc all works. As with many older models this one has good as well as not so good things happening.
Car runs and drives strong, no issues with motor. Interior is amazing for its age. Video is taken from a cold start since winter time, so it sat for about 3-4 months. Started right up to my pleasant surprise. Does not need to be smogged and currently registered until October 2019 in California. 4 brand new tires and freshly powder coated wheels. New battery and full-size spare in the trunk.*the hood was left propped open for the engine bay pics and the videos, it latches just fine*
Next things on the list for this car would be: Front brake pads (wear indicators say so) and a small diesel fuel leak (a slow and small drip) from what I am thinking is the return line.
I am getting ready for my next project, a '67 250S Benz (from Germany) seen here in the last picture which isn't for sale yet. Clean title, no warranty, buy as is.
I'm also going to try to post videos of the car here but I don't know too much about Youtube:

If you're in need of a car that is built like a tank and one that will keep on ticking, this is it.
