Parting out 1968 280S S.California

I'll be parting out my parts car soon. I'm using the engine and transmission in a 1967 250 S that has no engine and transmission.

The parts car is a 1968 280 S. Like I said, engine and transmission will be gone. I'm also taking other things from under the hood: radiator, AC components, etc. And I'm taking the front calipers, maybe the rear calipers, maybe the rear springs.

Body is basically rust free. Paint is not very good silver. All the glass is good. All the lenses are bad. Instruments except odometer work well. Interior is complete but not very good grey vinyl. Carpets are crap. Upper dash is bad, lower dash is good. Power windows work in the front doors, nothing works in the rear doors and I haven't investigated the reason. Wipers work, AC does not work but is complete. Door panels are cut for additional speakers.

I'm not interested in shipping anything larger than a USPS Priority Flat Rate box. If you want a door, I'll make you a good deal and you come remove it.

Any interest?
