WTB: 300e in Good Condition

I am looking to buy a 300e or 300te in good mechanical and physical condition within 100 miles or so of Washington, DC. I have a 190e that I am bringing back from the dead and would prefer to only have one project at a time. Miles do not worry me, but issues with the transmission and rust do. Would prefer dark color exterior with light MB Tex interior, but I am interested in anything.

Mostly I want a daily driver that has been taken care of. Paint issues are not a major concern as long as there is no rust. Mechanically sound is a must.

I also may be selling my 1987 300d very soon. Just under 205,000 miles, interior was redone by PO and is in great condition and extremely comfortable though not original. Suspension has many components under 10,000 miles. Everything works except the antenna, but i think i have a working one someplace. Car has ugly ricer headlights, but I have originals. Brand new OVP, brand new battery, new seal at diesel thermostat (had slight leak), oil changes with Rotella 15-40, no oil leaks, does not burn oil. Mileage has been about 21 mpg around town. I don't get it out on the highway enough to justify the diesel which is why I want to switch to 300e. Cars runs well, though it is a bit rough on a cold start. Smooths out when it warms up. Tires have probably 50% tread, maybe a bit less. Has some surface rust at jack points, rust has not gone all the way through. Some small dings and dents, clear coat has failed on roof and trunk. Has a valid VA safety inspection and I would not hesitate to drive it anywhere.

$2,000 obo.
