FS FT: 1982 300D and/or 1979 300SD

I have a couple of cars that I would like to throw out there. I need to drive one of them, but it really doesn't matter which one, they are both able to get you from point A to point B in comfort.

The first is a 1982 300D. It has approx 248,000 miles, but the speedometer broke, so I switched out the instrument cluster 2,000 miles ago with one that registered 128,000. It has an '83 engine in it, with ~120k miles. I figure that the odometer reflects more the mileage on the engine than the mileage on the chassis. The engine is a good runner, and it starts well, cold mornings can be hard though. This car is straight and honest body-wise. It is a dry Colorado car. There are three spots where some rust has started and that is it. The driver's side front quarter panel, directly behind the wheel on the bottom piece of trim is bubbling, and on both rear quarter panels, also directly behind the wheel, there are small rust spots. A few dings here and there. Mostly original paint, faded, palomino yellow (beige). Sunroof works, all windows work, all gauges work, I don't know about the air-conditioning, it has it, I just never use it. The cruise control works intermittently. Seats are all in good shape, I just swapped the driver's side bottom cushion with one from a parts car and the springs are now fine and the seat is comfortable. 2 new tires on the rear, I just changed the oil and filter, and at the same time did a purge of the fuel system and changed both fuel filters. It is weathered, but for the most part, ready to go.
$2,500 or offer, with trades I can go either way, up or down.

The second car is a 1979 300SD. Lots of miles, 322,000 at this point. I drive it daily to work, 90 miles round trip. 27 mpg, all day long. It starts beautifully in the cold and has plenty of power. The radio does not work, nor does the cruise control. The sunroof and the passenger side rear window do not work. The remaining 3 windows are very slow. Aside from that, it is a good car that I obviously feel comfortable putting some miles on.
$2,000 or offer, same deal with trades, up or down.
I would also be interested in trading both cars for something nice. Let me know what you have.
Both cars are located in northern Colorado.
