I am looking for a 300/350 SDL (W126) first and foremost.
I will also consider 300D or 300TD models up to 1985, but preferably a TD or a wagon.
420/560 models I will also look at provided they are long wheelbase cars.
I am willing to purchase the right car (as listed above) pending the sale of my LandCruiser and Rabbit but figured I would offer them as a trade/part trade for parties that may be interested. If you have any of the above models for sale and are in or not far from my area, please email the details.
What I have:
1982 Toyota BJ42 LandCruiser diesel. Strong `B` diesel motor (1980), newer H55F 5-speed transmission, 3-speed transfercase, 24 volt electrical, hardtop with ambulance doors/bikini top, 33x12.50 General Grabber M/Ts on 15x10 black NASCAR style wheels, custom front bumper with winch mount. Good solid truck that needs some assembly as motor/tranny/T-case has been removed. T-case needs bearings and seals and fiberglass lid on hardtop has a crack in the front corner. Motor has fresh plugs and injectors. H55F Tranny rebuilt not long ago with receipts to prove. These diesel Cruisers are rare and tough as hell.
As a bonus I will throw in:
1983 Volkswagen Rabbit L diesel. Reliable (but slow) 1.6 NA diesel, 4-speed standard, two door, green/tan with approximately 150,000kms. This car was owned by two old ladies that used it occasionally. I am the third owner. The odometer stopped at just over 137,000kms. It has new front and rear brakes and brake lines, new fuel tank, new battery, new plugs, lights, front tires etc., etc...Interior is free from rips or tears but could use a cleaning. It has some rust in the usual areas but nothing major and is overall in pretty good shape with the exception of the faded paint and dirty carpets. I put fuel in it once every couple of months and use it daily for work. It is excellent on fuel. It could use shocks and front strut bearings but doesnt need
A career change and thus lack of spare time is forcing me to sell my toys...all except one project and one driver...she says. So I have decided to keep my 72 Bug and unload the remaining (Chevy K5 and 74` Austin Mini already gone) in exchange for a Benz. I am in southern Ontario, Canada near the N.Y. border and would prefer to keep things relatively close. Email me with any questions or inquiries at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will get back to you as soon as I can. I apologise for not having pics of the VW. I can take some/more upon request by interested parties...
