newb purchasing a 84 300D

I'm new to this and am purchasing a 1984 300d. My friend bought a Chevy diesel truck and is sellling his car to me. It is a southern car from GA (I'm in PA) and has 375,000 miles on it. I saw it a few months ago it looks clean, just a lot of miles. I'm going to read more before I ask questions, but he is selling it for $3k to me and I was wondering if that is a decent price. Obviously, I cannot explain the complete condition as I do not know the entire history. Any recommendations on what to review or look for would be great.

Seems kind of steep, but then again I don't know much about it. Does it have maintenance records, any rust at all, etc.. Welcome to the board. Once you have one of these, you won't leave them. Come in to the 123 world..

Too many cars is NOT an addiction..

I'm down to 2 W123's.. Wonder what's next?
