Exclamation 1984 280ce 98174 miles

I just purchased a 1984 280 CE. Its my first mb and paid $500 for a car that has been garage since day one, it has spent the last 5 years in the weather. I have know about this car for about 10 yrs the owner passed and the widow wanted to hold on to it, untill now. The car still shines all the trim is intact and chrome is stunning the interior has cracked dash and seats are worn missing 3 wood trim pieces. I have found out that it a grey market car. There are some issues. Exhaust manifold has a hole near the collector, sometimes it does not kick down into the proper gear, in general I need advice. The car was brought so cheap i could sell it as is for a profit, but since driving it I have fallen in love. It feels good to drive an MB executive luxury car, makes me feel great after a hard day fixin A/C. I need to repair this car myself in order to keep it. ANY ADVICE ????
