for all those that wish to pursue this......

I went and checked this car out in person. If someone needs a straight body, i didn't even see any door dings, it was a well cared for vehicle no seperation of the back glass, NO rust in the usual areas---- came from texas, so dry climate rubber seals bits need refreshed or replacing. has euto headlights and wiper system intact. Interior is of course cloth and shows normal decay for that year-bumpers are in excellent shape, aluminum is only just starting to anodise and looks as though this was very well cared for and in no collisions

As for the AMG documentation....it has a door jam sticker but was made by Great Western Auto "rent-a-car" and gives the inventory number and clearly states it as a 500se AMG....however if there was any motor work it is not evident...guess this was a rental at the time it was shipped over here and they titled it as such... It spent the majority of its life in Texas ---you can clearly tell it was from a dry hot climate

The Engine---1982 euro log headers, dual exhaust, no smog pump, didn't look underneath to see if it had the cats---new plugs, BERU wires, cap, coil, frequency valve, fresh vacum pieces, I pulled off the valve cover and looked very clean with no oil deposits, someone has done the chain and upper rails, tensioner, oil spraying rails, as well as the cis unit (original was in the trunk, among other parts)(valve seals may have been done?)

as for the running issue, didn't fire her over but as the owner stated in the previous post --2 of the cylenders have a low compression which are closest to the driver's side firewall so maybe it does need a head gasket on that side only.

The owner will not part her out so don't ask---if you want a straight body for your good running engine, this is a great donor car with no rust. Or put a little more money into her to fix the engine, refresh the paint and you are done---it looks like it was well maintained for the majority of its life---I have far too many projects and tend to sway towards the coups, otherwise i would take it on
