1985 Mercedes 380SE converted to 500SE

This was my parents car. Purchased new in 1985 for about $47,000. I got it from my dad last year to fix up, he didn't want to sell it so I inherited it. At the time, it had a 4.2 liter V8 from a 1987 420 SEL. He replaced the engine back in 1990 I think because the 3.8 had a problem (don't remember what) and rather than fix it, he replaced it with the bigger motor. Ran fine until last year when the timing chain went. I bought a 1985 500 SEL engine with about 150k miles on it and it's in the process of getting installed in the car. It's almost done, but I've grown tired of this long and arduous project. The car itself is a gold on Palomino 380SE, decent condition, paint is ok but not great, hood/roof/trunk dull and swirl marks in clearcoat. Interior is very nice, but color is sun faded. I have complete pics of everything. I already have 3 cars and one on the way so I want to sell this one as soon as it's running. I have a ton of money in this but don't really care about getting it all back, just want to sell. Asking $3000 for this but willing to entertain offers or interesting trades (any motorcycles). Email me for more info and pics, car is in Las Vegas.
