FS: 1991 420SEL W126. Well, what happened was...

Oh god. What happened was:
Bought this 1991 Mercedes 420SEL, w126, with broken timing chain guide rail. Removed and rebuilt engine. New bearings, rings, etc. There were bent valves so I sent the heads to Star Motors to have them rebuilt. I live in the Greater Kansas City area, by the way. All of the timing components are new, chain, guides, tensioner. Basically, the engine and the transmission are not in the car. They are in my garage, it is climate controlled. The body is in very good condition. Small rust at driver A pillar. Some clearcoat peeling. There is also a noticable dent at the driver side C pillar. The car has 173K miles and is black over grey. I would like to sell everything for one low price, but will sell the driveline and body seperately. When I bought the car the battery was in good working condition and tested all of the electronics. Windows, sunroof, locks, etc. all worked. I am unable to make any gurantees now, but I would suspect everything still works. Please ask ANY questions.
