W123 Euro bumpers and Euro trailer hitch
I have been "stalking" the doner car for 5 months and it finally hit the yard. I spent a fair amount of time with it. The car is a 1983 230 E. If anyone needs anything from it, let me know. It has a cloth green interior, front headrests only, manual windows. Exterior is metallic green (not dark).
So I have the front and rear one-piece bumpers with the associated rubber side pieces. The rear bumper has a small dent, not too bad. I thought the front bumper was perfect but when I got it home I realized that it had been pushed up in the center on the underside. Not visible from the top. The rubber on the bumpers is good.
The hitch is wonderful. It is an engineering masterpiece that Mercedes designed this the way it is designed. The style of the hitch is as shown in the attached jpg, except the ball assembly itself does unbolt from the cross piece. I also have the electrical connections that tie into the existing tail light plugs. The electrical receptacle for the trailer lights is not in the best condition. Everything else related to the hitch is fantastic.
Local pickup would be great. Selling it all as a package would be great. But I suspect that there will be lots of interest in the hitch and less interest in the bumpers. And I suspect I'll be shipping to whoever wants this the most.

Price for hitch: I'm offering the hitch assembly with the electrical as shown for $300 plus shipping from 91001, estimate the weight to be 50 pounds. I'm also putting it on ebay for $400...
