1975 300D starter engages when put in Park
This is my first time here, and my first time with a Mercedes--please excuse any typical dumbness on my part...
I'm about to buy a 1975 300D automatic. The current owner has advised me that the car has been stored without running for about a year, and that yesterday, while test driving it, everything was going fine until he wanted to put the car in park. At that time, the starter seemed to engage. I wonder if this is a typical issue or if it's completely unheard of to Mercedes enthusiasts such as yourselves. And, if it's a common problem, is it one that is easily solved, one that would take a good deal of money to solve, or if should keep me away from buying this car altogether.
Please help, and thank you.
