Yeah, a quart in 150 miles is pretty bad. You're probably right about the head, but right to do a leakdown test first.

Some of your reasons for liking your 300D sound similar to my reasons for wanting a '78 300SD: First turbodiesel passenger car ever, only available in the 116 chassis two years, and built the year I was born.
