FS: 1979 300SD W116

Up for sale is my 1979 300SD. It has 338k miles. Originally a New Mexico car, now in Boulder, CO. It has some rust, nothing major, but it is there. I can give a more candid description if someone would like it.
It starts beautifully, even on really cold mornings without being plugged in.
I was using it to commute between Fort Collins, CO and Boulder, CO. 90 miles round-trip, 5-days a week. I got ~30mpg and it never left me stranded. I just moved and don't have the need anymore.
It has a slow transmission leak.
The exhaust manifold gasket needs to be replaced.
The vacuum locks do not work (you can lock it up, however) and the the passenger side rear window does not work.
Amazingly the sunroof works!

I just re-packed the front bearings. Replaced the brake pads all around. New air filter, etc. I'll throw in the extra oil filters I have on hand. I have some other misc parts that would go with the car.

I know it's not worth a whole lot, but it's a good reliable car that will give you 30 mpg all day long. I drove it to the midwest in mid-october and it did just fine.

$1,500 obo
Please PM me if you are interested. Because of the holiday, I may not be able to get back to you until Monday.
