1985 300D parts car or daily driver - Houston

I have an 85 300D which was used as a daily driver until a month or two ago and it ran like a top. But unfortunately rust became an issue and it needed a paint job, so I began parting it out. 90% of the car is still intact including all major parts. Engine and trans are very strong with 292k. I need the driveway space.

Frankly, it was a very reliable daily driver that has been in my family for about 7 years and could once again be a daily driver for you with a little work. In the last year and a half it's had: diesel purge, valve adjustment, coolant flush with Xerex G05, new differential oil, trans fluid and filter, power steering fluid and filter, glow plugs, wipers, primer pump, fuel filters, engine mounts, and of course oil every 3k. I just need it gone from my driveway, so if you need a parts car or not so pretty but mechanically sound and very reliable daily driver with a little work in the Houston area, PM me with a reasonable offer.

Here is some more info including pics (from before parts were removed) and what has been sold so far:
