euro gray market 280SL parting out
just picked up a 1980 280SL.
speedo indicates 79,000 original miles
and based on the records I have seen and talking to the previous owner
I believe it to be the actual miles.
the car is way past saving with regards to rust.
significant exterior rot on the body.
it appears to have sat since about 1990 and simply deteriorated
the M110 6cyl engine cranks, and I am hoping to get it running tomorrow
( I think the fuel pump is INOP )
will report back here with results.
whats for not for sale:
front and rear bumpers
everything else is available including:
complete excellent condition BOSCH euro headlght set
and euro headlight switch with level control
complete fair condition euro taillight set
manual ( crank ) windows / window regulators
and matching door panels ( dark blue )
complete M110 engine and trans
pretty much everything else
