What a rusty 240K mile 1985 300TD wagon worth?

Looked at a rusty waon locally today. Didn't drive it. Its about 45 minutes away. I was killing time with both boys napping in the back of my 240D. Car started good and sounds good. Has the third seat. He says it shifts great. $500. It has a new windshield. I'll try and post some pictures soon.
I also spoke with someone way south that has a rust free wagon, like an 83 with like 280K on it and they want about $3000. Such an addictive hobby.

SLS pump alone is worth some $$$. Head with SLS pump worth even more.

Put a $50 deposit on it. May pick it up this weekend. Has a brand new windshield, and the exhaust system is new all the way back. There is a little blow by. Starts good and shifts good. Now I have four rims for my snows for this winter. Wonder what the hydraulic pump is worth used....
Just has to make the 45 mile trip home.

Made the 35 mile trip fine!

The engine runs great. Tranny is noisy when cold, but shifts fine. Both rear brakes got toasty hot. Started messing with the rust and then the voice in my head said NO MORE RUST NO MORE RUST! That and I saw that the lower support for the radiator was so rusted that the radiator was ready to fall out. I hate to do it to a wagon, but its being parted out. Haven't decided if I'm selling parts or what because most likely someday I'll have a very clean wagon and parts are only going to get harder to find. I think it was worth $500. I love taking things apart so this is a great outlet. 7 pages of pictures here: http://asnowsquall.smugmug.com/gallery/3456535#P-3-9
