DSM guy getting into Mercedes

How's everyone doing? DSM guy switching over to classic cars. I've had a 1992 Eagle Talon TSI and 1991 Galant VR4, the VR4 is selling this week and I'm looking for another car. I made a criteria for my next car, it had to be a sedan, rwd and pre-85. My heart was set on the 1978-80 Toyota Cressida but they are hard to find and expensive when they do show up. Then I came ran into the 240D and 300D and saw potential.

There are two cars that I'm looking at now, one is a 1977 240D with 88K on it. Its a dealership and their asking $3500. I researched the 240D and people have said that is slow. The other is 1983 300D with 229K, the owner is asking $1000 for it. I've researched both cars and found both car are really reliable and that 229K is not bad mileage for these cars.

Any advice on with one to get, my budget was no more than $1500 but that 88K 240 D is a deal.
