Question buying 1982 300cdt

Hi every body, what you guys think about a 1982 mercedes coupe turbo diesel, the guy asking 900 hundred bucks, with 182,000mi. has totally destroy the interior, and just barely rust in rear panel, car run and drive,in my experience engine sound healthy, but because it has turbo i am not sure how can affect the engine in case turbo give problems, any way the car in the scale 1 to 10 is 7, so you guy thinks is a good restoration buy? thanks in advance.

No. run away.

unless you have a spare interior laying around, and you like to repair rust.

of course, you need to post pictures for a better answer.

You seem to have other MB cars, so I would think you would have already done some research on turbo reliability. A $900 car with rust and torn up interior is a 3 at best.

Also what do you want out of the car? full resto, drive until it drops, or ?

Need pictures of all your cars or they don't exist.
