FS: '85 380se, low price but needs work

Ive already posted this car on Craigslist:

Mercedes 380se, RUNS!

My gf bought this car in Feb, for $750. USD. It runs, but has a few issues. I just replaced the radiator beacause it was old and brittle, with a used like new unit. It has a vacuum leak, and I realized the vacuum line going from purge valve to throttle valve housing is broken, and im sure it will run better if re-connected. Needs a tune-up also. I recently replaced drivers side window and window motor. The two back windows need the plastic sliding clip for windows, but both do operate besides that. The interior needs help, and currently has two front seat covers, and rear seat cover. The exterior needs repainted, because previous owner had someone wax it, but they left under the sun and forgot to remove the wax. Also needs a passenger-side front tire, but is holding air. Someone also came along a few nights ago, and spray painted the registration sticker black. It expires this month (july 2010). Recently changed oil couple weeks ago. Also replaced FPR, and check valve connected to brake booster. Seems to have a short in wire connected from distributor to ignition box. Needs a new battery.

Were askin $300.00 OBO! Car is located in East Palo Alto, CA 94303. (USA)
