87 MB 300d additional?

Thank you for guidance regarding my thoughts on purchasing a 1987 300d with 37,500 miles on it for an asking price of $14,500. I forgot to ask about starting in Winter. I live in a condo and have no access to electricicity for block heaters. What are my options? Winters in New England are vold. Also, the guy who is selling the car has been driving it for a year, if old rubber gaskets were to go, wouldn't they have gone by now?

It sounds like too much money to pay for the car. But aside from that, I think diesel owners add some kerosene to their tanks to help them start in winter. Anything rubber on a 1987 is suspect, so are the plastic fuel lines.
