FS 1981 280s 4 speed w126

Hi all, 1st post so please forgive errors. Tough times force sale of babies, no time to finish. I wanted to post here to give members first shot at two cars 1 nice, 1 rare. #1 1981 W126 280s not se with a 4 speed, euro. Has lots of issues, but is a daily driver. I bought it for the Ronal Pentas that were on it, but it runs and is a hoot to drive. #2 1984 500SE euro. Motor blew, replaced with low mile 560 and tranny. Have not gotten it running yet, differences in euro, and US spec injection. #2 has nearly perfect body and very nice black interior, grey exterior, Pentas on it. Beautiful car. #1 is Black with tan interior, both very crappy, body straight, slight rust, aluminum hood,A/C (works!), no telling what will or won't work today. Cars are in Wilmington, NC
Pm me for photos, I'll be happy to take specfic ones as requested.
$2000 firm for everything (both cars and any spares). Ed,

Pictures

Hi, thanks for the interest, here are some pics of the 280 as it has drawn the most comments. As you can see she's not too pretty (yet), but has a lot of potential. I have swapped the solex for a qjet, and it runs much better, the solex has a different air horn, so an edelbrock filter does the job (and makes it sooo much faster!) Elec sys. has various gremlins, but is not too bad, brakes and suspension work but could use some tlc, the engine runs strong, no smoke, oil press at idle is about 1.5 and pegs as soon as you rev it. Does'nt use oil or overheat, valves need adjusting. The pentas are on the 500se, 280 has bundts. The front carpet is out to show floors, and I had requests for the wheel wells and shock towers. The last shows the worst of rust and dents. Thanks guys, Ed. BTW it looks worse than the pics show.
