How much rust on a 300D is too much?
I am looking into buying a 1978 Mercedes 300D with 250k+ miles on it. I found the car on craigslist
and went to drive it. It runs very smooth but the AC has leakage.
The interior is in great shape but there is rust underneath pretty much all the carpets and on the side of the car. The paint is in terrible shape. He is asking for too much. I drove it
1. What would be an appropriate price? Less than $2k?
2. Do you think the rust has an impact on the functionality and/or safety of the car?
Sorry the photos are so huge.
Thank you for your time!
