FS [SYD,AUS]: W126 280SE, including spare engine/gearbox

This is copied directly from the Ozbenz forum. Hoping I haven't broken any rules, but this my W126, for sale in Sydney, Australia.

Hi all,

After recently purchasing a 300TD, I've (Mums) decided that the 'project' W126 has to go.

I'll give it a wash tomorrow night and post some pics (weather permitting), but here is a pic from about 2 months ago..

The following spares come with the car.

M110 engine, from same year and model, approx 300,000 kms (to be safe) Was running when taken out, Has snapped engine mount
Gearbox suited to car/engine (again, approx 300,000 kms (to be safe)) Was running with engine as daily driver.
Spare steering box
Spare (GC) steering wheel
Drivers side front door trim (OK, better than current)
Spare SLS ride height controller (has a leak)
Many spare interior parts like lights, door bits, etc.
Spare indicator stalk - GC
Spare drivers side handbrake assembly for inside rotor.

The car

Nautical Blue, paint is OK, some crazing and cracked paint. No fade, a few dents though.
Engine in the car runs, has a very loud tappet - look through my recent posts to see inside the engine. Idle has been repaired with new idle air speed valve (from MB spares)
PS leaks from box, (hence spare steering box)
SLS works well
Rust repaired in the boot and under both driver's side doors. Rusting has stopped.
Boot leaks in really heavy rain.
No stereo
Dash has no cracks
All speedo dials work, although i think its out of a 420 or something because the speedo is a little off.
Air con - No belt on compressor
Heater works
Carpet OK
Seats good, no sagging in rear, but front 2 have had the pool noodle trick
WS wipers good
Lights work well
Indicator doesn't self cancel. Hence spare
Current steering box a little loose.
Driver's side handbrake assemble inside rotor is missing. Have spare.
Grille has dent and bonnet doesn't quite latch since some gronk drove into it.

That's all I can think of now. I'm looking for $1000 ono for the lot. I'm very sad to see it go. If anyone is interested in the parts, PM or reply here, might be willing to separate.

When I get some photos, and if there is no interest here, I'll put this all on ebay.
