I'm kinda bummed about this, but it's the way things go. I have been storing this car at a friends in VT for the past year since I moved south and was planning on parting it out this spring, but other responsibilities and lack of space/time has prevented this, however I don't want it crushed w/out grabbing some of the nice stuff(If I had my way, it would be a bare shell getting crushed)
My 280se: ivory interior nearly perfect(or was 1 year ago needs a cleaning) this is probably what I would most like to see go to a good home. I don't know if the w116 interior usually held up better than w123, but even the drivers seat is nice. the body is basically junk, lots of rust, holes in floors etc. Motor has blown headgasket, but did run and move (tranny probably good, but just drove around the yard so who knows.
There is also a 450sel Euro model up there that I can scavenge some stuff off of. I haven't really looked at it in detail, but it has euro lights and bumpers, velour(sp?) interior( not sure of condition, but can find out and maybe get pics), a WABASO HEATER(sp?), and who knows what else, solid body has engine problems.
The situation: I'm in NH, cars are in northern VT 20 miles from Canada(Newport, VT).My friend is selling his business, and I have no license right now(BS) and no where I can store the cars, which complicates things.
My plan: My 280se is filled with w123 parts for my car, so I have to go up there. I am going up for 1 or 2 days depending on what I can work out. I will pull the most desirable things that will sell fast or will store easily. Contact me with parts requests, prices will be determined by labor, size( if I pull the interior, I won't be able to take other big stuff, you know what I mean?) and rarity so please use common sense and i will try to do the same. If you are close enough that you would like to view these cars in person that can be arranged, so if you need stuff that I don't want or need it will be cheap.
These cars could also be sold whole, so if you want to strip them at your liesure, that's cool make an offer. Here's a pic of the 280se, not sure what body kit this is
, but someone might want it.
Thanks for looking, sorry for the long post. I just wanted to make the situation clear, just in case someone out there can make use of as much of these cars as possible. I'll be away from the internet until Wednesday night, but if your interest in anything give me a call, so I can start trying to put a list together and figure out fair prices and shipping. I live in Fremont,NH 03044, so things can be picked up from there or shipped(large stuff) from 05845 in VT
Give me a call at 603 244 0470 for more details
PS My 280 has Intra bunts on it if anyone is interested
