Red face 1980 280CE euro model 4 sale

I have a decent 280CE for sale. Its a 1980 gray market vehicle. car located in Boise Idaho.
The good: good running engine with 236K miles but does use some oil,starts very easily, great auto trans,split exhaust manifolds(no egr), original exhaust in great condition, original paint(met rootbeer), interior and wheels, has euro lights with vacuum adjusters, factory fire extinguisher, tan leather and cloth interior(decent), has NO smog equipment whatsoever including cat-just as it was when it left the factory for German market,has CIS with no lambda computer or oxygen sensor, has original manuals in German, front power windows and manual rear windows, electric sunroof, cruise control, NO auto climate control (has add on A/C Like factory style(not hang on underdash type), brakes seem good.

The bad: uses some oil,valve tapping noises-seems like a common issue, clearcoat mostly peeled off, rear glass is delaminating(common), right side glass is broken(just happened for no apparent reason-if someone has one let me know) minor oil leaks, rust in usual areas but not severe-doors are the worst part-floor seems good(Idaho does not salt roads), original radio missing(replaced with pioneer aftermarket cd player by someone else), small rock chip hole in one headlight lens(still works good), cruise is inop(have all good parts to make it work), dashpad replaced with US spec due to cracks. A/C inop(was working but all freon has leaked out- I think its the compressor(square york type) needs cv boot on left rear inner joint, steering gear ia a little sloppy( tightened it up some but is a pain to do), ignition lock inop(wheel).

New parts etc: Plugs, cap, rotor, wires, LOF, trans flush and filter, new radiator top tank, new radiator hoses, coolant, thermostat, battery, battery cables, have a good used set of tires in trunk, have all parts for cruise control to work, new fan clutch, misc new interior parts(amazed you still can get all parts like climate control knobs etc) , New ignition switch and lock cyinder but I removed the steering locking part -- all used ones seemd bad), many extra parts.A/C controls and wiring completely redone with the proper parts. Using a BMW recirc switch-looks like mercedes installed it due to the fact that whoever installed it originally did a horrible job. have receipts for all new parts.

Price: I am asking $1500 firm for car. That is what I have into it and just want to get it out of my driveway. I just have too many cars and just dont need it. I can email pics if needed but I am on vacation and wont be back into town to send pics until about Jan 15th. I can answer all questions anytime.
