Here are the first set of images from "Rusty". I know you said run, but I got sent these so I'd figure I'd check it out.

Really fast away from this one.
I think the one coming up for auction in March looks good , but would get many more pics. Maybe someone from the auction house can walk you through it.

Update:
So I went and looked in detail at the 1976 300D that is located in Portland. The car is in great shape and doesn't have rust issues. The only real issue is the horse hair. It is totally gone and will need to be replaced. That appears to be a expensive job from the quotes I got (600 a seat). Are there alternatives. He is pretty firm on the 5K price as well.

Garage
you can buy all the parts yourself, the seats are very easy to redo.

Seat Upholstery, Carpet Sets, Converitble Tops, Headliners, Door Panels and Rubber Seals for Mercedes Benz W114, W115 Coupes & Sedans from World Upholstery & Trim

dont know which car you are looking at but this one should be looked at for comparison.

2 x baby blue 300D/8

I got a couple of them.
Non-running, but SoCal rust free.
Interior and paint may be sunfaded/dry.
