Buying a '88 420SEL

Hey guys im new here. I am currently looking for my first MB. Ive driven a few models (190D, C230) and LOVE the feel of MB. Ive been doing some research and found a real clean 420SEL. IT has 215k km and the guy is charging 3k$. I am a student so dont have tonnes of spare cash but do have 2 part time jobs so can pay for maintenance and repairs. I was wondering if these cars a reliable. I dont really care about gas milage either because my job and school are close to home (20km). Or are there any other older models (preferable 80s maybe early 90s) that you would recommend? I do like diesel as well. My budget is up to around 4k. Thanks a lot!
