WTD; 300SD half cut

I need help in locating a half-cut 300SD to be transported to Australia. As I will transfer the engine and gearbox into a local body, rust is no objection as long as engine and box are in good nick. I like to start with a half cut as this will also supply the necessary cabling.
I like a 300 turbo, but the few that are around, are usually not for sale, and as far as I know the turbo engine 300Ds were only ever imported int Australia in W123 300Ts.
Guards headlights and bonnet are not really needed.
thanks in advance Hank

Info could be helpful

Hank if you are mostly interested in the drive train ALL 82 to 85 123 body US Mercedes have the trubo diesel engine (sedan, coupe and touring)
A whole car might prove easier to purchase and transport than a half cut wrecking yard special. Just my .02

Cool Because it seems easier

Because it is seems easier from where I stand. I start of with a non-turbo car and may need several parts that I can just transfer from the donor, if the donor is standing next to it.

The reason for a half-cut is transport. There are several companies that regularly transport engines and other parts for the enthusiasts of older American Cars. A half cut will take up a lot less space in a container besides why transport parts that i can "easily" obtain in Australia.

thanks for your reply Hank
