parting out wrecked '79 240D, auto

Front end hit, both fenders damaged, hood OK (surprizingly), grille gone, front bumper ruined, rad & condensor trashed. All else is pretty much good, interior very nice, although rear seat horse hair is totally shot. Carpet sections decent- not perfect in left front. Dash was cracked and is trashed. Heater & a/c controls good, all the little switches and gizmos overall good (right heater servo is broken, though) car had 280K on it, motor had 118K. Engine is great- ran beautifully until the crash (I installed it about a year ago- original engine died). Transmission shifted good, some slight leaks- it's out of car, good opportunity to reseal it. All doors good, outer trim good, right rear lift motor inoperative (never looked at it- other work fine, switch is good), rear bumper good. All glass is good. Would like to sell doors intact, so I don't have to break them down, but will if need be. Tail lamps are good, headlight units are all right, front turn signalls are all right, also. Rear shelf is in nice shape, some fading on the first aid kit cover, has not been punched out for speakers (ever!), first aid kit unused (has anyone ever used one?). Headliner is perfect (no sunroof). Meters are good, working and no damage to housing. Color is that tannish yellowish jaundicy color, with caramel colored interior. Has steel wheels w/ matching color covers, pretty good shape. Parts are in Maryland (Hagerstown), I am going to go back there next week, and can bring smaller items back to Colorado (Denver/Boulder).
Reasonable offers please. Private message for requests. This has been a onerous project as I was right in the middle of moving back to CO when I wrecked the car. Bad luck, no luck, etc...

How much for the steel wheels, with or with out covers?
Need a winter tire set for my 240D.
Also could use a front ash tray.
Could you post some pics? Want to verify colors. I could use a few other interior parts if they looked good.
