Talking New to MB ownership

Recently acquired an 86, 300e for $1,500, with 165,000 miles. Body is almost perfect. Has a few issues...power door locks don't work, A/C not working, and she idles terribly.

Am working on brake job at present. Other than the idling issue, the car runs strong. I'd like to get it back to original running condition, so I will be looking for lots of help.
