1985 MB Turbo Diesel

I am considering purchasing a 1985 MB Turbo Diesel that looks lovely. However, it has 190K miles with no major engine/transmission rebuilds or alterations.

Anyone have suggestions on what to look for? If I were to purchase, I would want to keep for a very long time, so any suggestions on whether to look into a rebuild down the road or new?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated as I am just getting into cars and learning about the inner workings!!!

Bought the same model for my son over a year ago with 280k on it. Few orings and gaskets that needed replacement and it is perfectly running car.
Ready for another 20+ years of service.
Good luck with the purchase and welcome to the forum.
