FS: 1985 500SEC Euro

I am selling my 1985 500 SEC Euro. This car has a 5.0l OHC V8 engine and 4 speed automatic transmission and a limited slip rear end. It's got power leather seats and seat heaters. It's a good running car, but it does need some attention. The body is in decent shape, but it's not perfect. The clear coat is coming off on the roof and the trunk lid. It has good tires, all of the windows work and the sun-roof works. The steering is tight as well. Some things it needs are: front brakes, the auto temp controls don't function, the ABS is not working either. The odometer stopped at 176,000 miles. Actual mileage is unknown. This has the European bumpers, European high compression engine, true dual exhaust, and all of the German owners manuals. I have service records for this car up until about 10 years ago. Trades will be considered. I would be interested in a 79-86 Mustang or if you have a little pickup from the 60's or 70's, I would be interested in one of those plus cash. I would prefer a Datsun, but Toyota, Mazda or Ford would be interesting to me as well, among others. Asking 1500 obo.

Here is a copy and paste from my Craigslist ad.

There are a couple of pictures in the ad as well.

Would you separate the wheels? I could meet halfway.

I would have to have some wheels to put back on it with decent tires. I would also need to send you pics of the wheels, as they are not in the best of shape.
