FS: 1981 240D *4-Speed*

I bought this car last year in hopes of restoring it. After discovering that the floor pans were rotten(my fault for not doing a more thorough check), I decided to just drive it as is until major repairs were needed. A year later, She's still going just fine. My commute to work has gotten a bit longer, and I'm really wanting something a bit faster. Due to the rust, This car is probably better off being parted out. I would part it myself, but I lack the equipment and knowledge to do so.

The good:
Engine runs strong(~182k miles)
4-speed transmission shifts great
4-wheel disc brakes
Good clutch
Wheels are in decent shape, just need repainting.
Has full-size spare and jack

The bad:
Lots of rust(floor pans, trunk, doors, fenders, pretty much everywhere)
Leaks oil
Cruise control missing
Odometer not working
Clock not working(of course)
Cracks in dash(not the worst I've seen, but cracks are cracks)
Driver's seat springs are broken(I put a foam noodle inside, but it only helps so much)

Brake lines
Brake pads
Possibly rotors

I'm sure there are a few other things I haven't thought of. If there are any questions, just let me know.

I'm asking $1200 or best offer, so feel free to make one.
