1984 300 tdt FS

We are selling Guffle, an 84 300TD t with 238k miles. This car is a euro car with the european adjustable headlights and the antenna on the front right. It is in good condition with an 8 interior and a 6 exterior. The car has zero rust since it has been in California all its life, first in palm springs and now in the bay area.
The dash has had a mat on it for about 10 years and is rather cracked underneath. The rest of the interior is very good. The seats are all excellent.
Exterior paint is oxidizing on upper surfaces but is otherwise fine. There is a large dent in the drivers door, still opens and shuts fine. The fender is undamaged on that side, only the door was hit. We are debating whether or not this should be fixed before sale. After seeing the outrageous prices these cars are fetching it seems like fixing the dent may be worthwhile.
Here are pics of the car
Any input on fair prices improvents etc is appreciated

For $2500 in cash I'll take it off your hands

Seriously, I want this car. I'd say, well from your description it will need paint and that ding pulled, which if done right is going to cost several thousand. The most important thing for you in determining the price is #1 how the car drives and runs, so that includes power of the motor, compression, and most importantly on wagon, the rear suspension. Service records can bring the price up and history is always good. I'd love to hear your price, if it is right, I would take wonderful care of it.

We actually have 2 of these, the other is an 82 which has more power but is generally worse looking. Hopefully it will be up for sale soon as well. I'll post some pics of the 2 of them in the next few days.

Hmm, well if you'd part with either one for between 2-2.5k I would be very interested. I'd love to hear your prices.

Does the wagon have A/C? I'm VERY interested if so, but pardon my ignorance on the Euro models - it does not look like this car has A/C, which makes it a no-go for me. :-(
