'83 300SD

Just picked up my '83 SD with 194k bought off Ebay. Got lucky, car is better than advertised and drove beautifully home. It truly appears to have been garaged its whole life. Found the service log book (and manual) in the glove box showing 28 years of oil changes, brakes, ball joints, etc. Only issues so far are: 1. minor oil leak (need to look for this and figure out where it is coming from) 2. rear windows not working (motor spins on right rear and nothing on left) 3. No AC (I cannot get air to blow out of front vents for either heat or AC, hot air comes out for defrost) 4. One spot of rust on driver door (underside of door only visible with door open 5. Fabric (leather?) has come unseated (not torn) around where the driver and passenger seatbelts attach to car frame. 6. Prior owner has several golf balls strategically shoved in around the engine, air filter, etc. (vibration reduction? leave them be?). Car is otherwise immaculate ... untouched first aid kit and spare tire/jack. I feel like I'm driving a collector car. I may need to clear out my garage
