280se needs lovin!!

there is a person selling manual w116 280se euro for anything over $300 in nc. owner says the car was running and it shut off. now it will start and after about ten minutes it shuts off. this car looks to be in great condition save for that. i have a euro 280se but its a automatic shift. kyou guys think i should buy this? it doesnt sound like a hard fix but then again i know nothing of engines. any ideas or should i pass on this? hers the ad

1977 Mercedes Benz 280se - Inline six, 4-speed manual. Car is in Kilometers - about 300,000 miles. Engine needs work. This car has been doing great for its age until about two weeks ago when it died on us while driving. The car will start, but will then stop idling after about 10 minutes. I do not know what is wrong. This was my fun project car, but I will be moving out of state in two months and cannot commit to this one right now. I can recycle to metal for $300 so I am taking offers for anything above that amount

EDIT: dont bother answering i just called the guy and it was sold while i was taking a nap this morning, oh well

How can you go wrong for $300? You can sell it to a junk yard for more than that at the very least. It looks to be in good condition also.
