Any interest?

Hydraulic issues resolved.
New mid muffler and a bunch of exhaust welding.
New battery and alternator.
Still runs a little rough with some smoke.

Given exhaust and electrical work I'm asking $1500.

Anyone???

Rust? How far are you from Ohio.. and would it make the trip back on its own?

RE: FS: 1980 280TE Grey Market Wagon

Some rust on rear quarters, especially drivers side.
Spare tire well has considerable rust.
Remainder of vehicle is fair.

If serious, would be willing to drive it to a meeting point. In your case...Pittsburgh???

Yes, I believe it would make an Ohio trip.

I don't want to deceive, this vehicle has a lot of "uniqueness". Two passenger's side doors are replacements (black vs. blue car), partial interior swap to Sienna MB Tex, etc..., etc...

But it runs, drives, has a valid inspection and is unique in that there are so few of these Euro wagons in U.S.

I think it's worth the $1500 for its rarity and potential. Please be sure you agree.
