FS - 1985 300TDT in Louisville 310k miles

Pics coming later today.

I have a 1985 300TDT for sale in Louisville KY, zip code 40220.

The basics:
- 310,000 miles
- runs and drives fine
- dark blue
- tan MBTex interior
- Price - make reasonable offer. I have no idea what to value this car at.

Good:
- reliable car, runs, drives fine. Makes frequent trips from Louisville to Elizabethtown, Cincinnati, Western KY, and Columbus.
- selling only because I don't need two station wagons in the garage. Baby on the way so the oldest car goes
- gets approx 20-25MPG
- had new glow plugs installed when I bought it, starts up in all weather every single time
- has needed very little maintenance
- radio and HVAC all work
- Sunroof works
- Interior in good shape except for cig burns in armrest

Bad:
- Its a 26 year old daily driver that spent a good portion of life in the rust belt. Some rust on the arches and quarter panels
- Rear bumper has fallen off. I have the bumper, but have not gotten the right parts to reattach it
- Will need tires soon
- There are some bumps and rattles indicating that suspension bushings and other rubber mounts might need replacement soon

So its not a great car. I don't think its so far gone to be parting it out or scrapping it.

Pics coming later today.
