FS: 1986 420 SEL - Victoria BC, Canada

I am selling my 420 SEL as is or for parts. I got rear ended in December and just never got it fixed. It sucks cause I love driving this car but we bought a new house and with fuel at $4.50/gal and rising, I just can't afford to keep it.

The good:
-The car is a driven daily and runs well
-The interior is in pretty good shape, all the window switches work
-3 of 4 tires are great, the other is adequate, they are Dunlop sport series
-All the brakes are 80%
-new center reverberator (that spider looking thing in the middle of the exhaust), actually, the whole exhaust is good.
-smoked rear tail lights
-grill is immaculate, whole front looks great with new headlight frames.
-Bumpers are good but certainly not perfect
-brand new battery
-engine runs well
-transmission doesn't miss a beat
-shocks are all good
-mp3 player
-360 tint

the bad:
-obviously the dent in the back drivers side
-the chrome on the wheels is good from a far but far from good
-the roof does not open anymore. The switch works and the motor works, but something got jammed and it will not open anymore
-there is a tick in the engine of unknown origin. Barely audible with windows down but there none the less. Does not seem to affect performance at all.

Thats it, have a look at the pics. Like I said, I drive the car all the time and have no problems but the parts might be worth more.

The whole car for $1500 CDN. email me for more pics/info etc.
