Thumbs up Two w123 parts cars (1979 240Ds parting out and for sale in UTAH)

Hello everyone, today I am unfortunately selling my two 1979 mercedes benz 240d sedans. I picked both of them up as a project to keep myself occupied between jobs, but now I've bit off more career than I can chew and am working 12-14 hour days and have to give them up

The black car was going to be my receiver and the white car was the donor. Unfortunately I never finished the project and both cars are lifeless and the engines are pulled out and into a trailer Now I just need them gone as neighbors are complaining and family members, too. (and we all know that's never good)

Anyway here is some more information:
Black 1979 240D:
Dead engine (turns over but won't start) with 360000+ miles. Compression?
New starter
New battery
New water pump
New radiator
Previously redone interior (Brown cloth seats)
The Automatic Transmission was replaced previously (I don't know when).
I believe the glow plugs were recent, but I'm not sure at all about that.
Came with a nice bottle jack in the trunk. Also for sale haha!
Original hubs and hood star!
I have the title!

Cream 1979 240D:
Fine engine with 242000 miles. Leaked a bit of oil out of the valve seal and possibly head gasket. Never diagnosed. My next step was to replace both while the engine was out.
Fine Manual transmission
All original interior in great condition, kind of a greenish brown color. Not my style.
Back bumper fell off and the rest of the body is pretty ugly too. The engine and transmission ran great though!
Original hubs and hood star!
I have the title!

Every shippable part is for sale or pickup. You name a fair price and I'll take it! I am located in Northern Utah close to Hill Air Force Base if anyone is interested in coming to see these vehicles. If you want both vehicles I will sell them to you for only $1200. I paid much more for them and just want to cut my losses at this point.

I will post more pictures as soon as possible. You can also email me with any question (much faster) at thinkweiz (AT) gmail . com or just post here.
