FS - 1988 420 SEL

The car has 240,000 miles on it. I bought it with intent to get it to tip top shape but have decided that I don't want to dump the money into it. The car was running fine, but the fuel pumps were noisy. It would quit after a while of running, but the problem just kept getting worse until it no longer will get fuel to the engine. I suspect that it will need new fuel pumps. (Yes, you can get it started by spraying starter fluid into the intake)
The car is Maroon on the outside and black on inside. The car has obviously been driven a lot and it's very old but the exterior is fairly clean with minimal rust and the interior is clean with not many cracks.
I wanted to get $1500 back from selling this. Maybe a fellow w126 lover will pick this up and get it running. I am a college student and don't need a second car sitting around in my drive that I can't even drive (I have a 2000 E430). You're welcome to negotiate price, but I will probably reject low ball offers, as I would probably just wait until I get new pumps and just have a second running car.

I am only interested in trades for a 4-cylinder, 5 speed manual transmission Ford Ranger or a mazda B series. I MIGHT be interested in trades for a standard or sports bike (crotch rocket).

I am located in Cincinnati, OH.
