83 300D for sale. ZERO rust w/records

Totally rust-free Russet Brown 1983 300D. 160K miles. Never any rust, never any rust repair. Clean and DRY inside. Russet Brown exterior, Palomino MB Tex interior in like-new condition. Carpets are nice. Starts runs and drives well. I got 33mpg on a trip to DC and back. Nice wood interior, nice dash. Window sticker says it was $31,000 new. Original paint! (except passenger front door was repainted but it was done very well and is undetectable)

Things that work: power windows, sunroof, power antenna, original AM/FM cassette (never tried the cassette)

Things that don't work right: rear power door locks (I should have those fixed in a week or two) cruise control (only accels, doesn't stay locked in) and A/C (compressor is good. Just a slow leak somewhere) Clock, tachometer (jumps around now and then otherwise reads 0)

I'm the third owner, a MBCA member, and I have all the paperwork for the car including the original window sticker and extensive records from the previous owner. First owner was a Pediatrician here in York. He traded it in '91 at Sun Motors. Second owner bought it there. I bought it from her in '04.
Thinking of Biodiesel, WVO or "greasecar" conversions? I have a 20 gallon stainless steel auxiliary fuel tank for a 300D. I will include it with the '83 or sell it separate.
I am also selling a light cream beige '84 300D parts car. Rusty rear floors and rockers. Good body panels otherwise. 210K. VERY strong motor/transmission. Previous owner was a retired Navy diesel mechanic. Nice palomino interior. Heated seats, digital AM/FM Becker. $1000 obo.

Make an offer on both. I need the garage space.

Please no tire kickers, low-ballers or "is it still for sale" emails. If you're reading this, it's for sale. I'll adjust the ad as things change.
Oil and genuine M-B filter changed this week (7/11)

I forgot I posted it on here! It's currently on the 'bay. The reserve is less than your offer. I don't know if I'm allowed to post auctions on here. 150272870197 is the item number. If this is not allowed -- my apologies.
