FS - Chicago - 1985 380SL - parts/repair

This is my dad's old 380SL, which he bought new 26 years ago. It has been in our clean, dry garage since ~2000, where it was parked with a bad transmission. Since then it has not moved. I removed much of the interior because I wanted to swap it into our other 380, which never happened, but the parts are all still present. I also took apart various other things because I was curious; none of it is anything you can't put back together in 30 minutes. The only thing I snagged for the other car was the seat belts for the jump seat. Body and paint are clean. I checked it for rust a year or two ago and found none except a tiny bit in the spare wheel well.

Very sad to see it go as it was a big part of my childhood but it takes up too much space. Time to move on. Call or text 63oh-33five-4five3eight. You will obviously need something to tow this away with.
