RE: purchase advice on a '65 MB 190D
If it is a 190Dc, it is the W110 body. When looking at one of these models, check for rust around the fender wheel wells, rocker panels, above the headlights, and in the floorboards. This body style tended to rust out if not properly cleaned. I wouldn't worry about sitting for just 2 years, though you may have brake or hydraulic clutch problems.
If you want a project, go for it. Many chassis parts are the same as other models, and most mechanical components are still available. $300 sounds cheap enough, but be prepared to put a few more dollars into it.
