Thinking of buying 1992 300E

Hi to all,

I live in southern California, looking to possibly buy a pretty good condition visually 1992 300E, 3.0 engine with 259,000 miles. Owner says will need a head and valve job at some point as it burns some oil now. I would really appreciate some advise and a heads up on what to expect as far as cost and known issues to look at. Purchase price would be $1000.00.

Thanks Much!
