Red face F.S. 78_W116_300SD PartsCar in PA (B.O.over salvage?)

Hello

I have to get rid of this car. (Unfortunately... Quickly.)
The local ordinance doesn't like it sitting about anymore.

I DO have the title.

It's in Schuylkill County PA. (North of Berks, Northwest of Lehigh)
I don't have time on my side, so I suppose you should be FAIRLY local, and/or able to pick it up well... really soon. (sorry)

I'm not above getting what the salvage yard will give me. I could use the $. But I'd rather she go to someone, that can get something more out of her.

5 cylinder Turbo diesel (of course)
I haven't run her for awhile but she will run.
I'm foggy on the miles. It's 130?150k?180k?
(Sorry but It's not at my home and I haven't looked in a while.)
But hey, it's a Mercedes Diesel. So it's just past it's break in period... right? ;-P

It has starting issues. (starter has trouble catching? I don't know for sure)

This being PA... she has ample cancer. (if she didn't... I'd be driving it.)
If you have a complete... solid... passenger side rocker... and are a body man that LOVES to weld... you MAY even be able to save her? (Hmmm... Not good odds.)

But If a rusty but complete running w116 with a sunroof, & typical period alloys, to part out for you're own Benz sounds good. And you can find room for her on the quick...
By all means shoot me a reply. If you're for real... I can give you my cell # to discuss it further.

Sorry If I've annoyed anyone.

Mike

Sounds great, except I don't need or want a whole car....which doesn't seem to help you out either.

Yeah... I hear ya.

I forgot to mention that I have the title. so I've gone back to edit the original post.

If I wouldn't have procrastinated. I could have yanked the engine and removed some bits and pieces for interested parties.
Or if someone was close enough. They could come to do it themselves, before getting towed to her final resting place.

Live and learn? I should have sold it a year (or so) ago, when I had the chance.

My skull is quite thick i suppose?
