Cripes, Duc - you gotta give us more pics than that. I'd love to see the interior!

Is that an ABS pump I see in the second pic?

yes to the ABS and yes to the roller blind.
I will be taking more interior photos later.

Keep in mind this car is a 95% restored, so there are some small things that will need to be completed. I have acres of spares to go with the car. The front seats will need to be finished [I've sourced all the parts, thats the hard part] and there's a dash waiting to be swapped in which I will most likely complete here in the next few weeks.

I had this same M110 engine in a 280GE and it is quite capable. You may want to contact the Classic Center on this beautful example.

I'd hate to see this go, it's a whole laundry list of items lovingly restored piece by piece, very well documented in his thread.

thanks for the encouraging words. the restoration process continues while the car is being listed. last night I pulled the hatch glass, replaced one of the plastic trims that's glued to the frame and reinstalled the glass. tonight I'll ensure everything else is nice and tidy and button that part up for the last time.
