FS W140 1997 S600 sedan

Up for sale is my 1997 S600 sedan.Navy blue with beige leather and suede interior.
I have owned this car for 3 years and it was my daily driver.I just bought a Jag XJR and no longer have the time or interest to fix this car up to the standards I would like.
The car presents nicely overall and the interior is very well maintained.
The vehicle has 18x,xxx thousand miles on it.The engine starts and runs flawlessly, the trans shifts properly and there are no whines or noises from the differential.
This car is a project, and although you can drive it around as is,it will need work.
The Good:
Drivetrain is great.
All windows and sunroof work well.HID headlights work.all power options work except for power folding mirrors.Interior very nice.
Rear suspension was converted from hydraulic to standard with Strutmaster conversion.
The Bad:
A/c does not work.I don't know why, I haven't bothered to chase it down, however these cars are known for evaporator leaks, so you may want to consider that a worst case scenario.Also blower motor/regulator is marginal.
It leaks engine oil and P/S fluid. Not sure from where, possible crankseal or low oil level sensor.
Rust is starting to take hold around the wheel wells and trunk lock areas.
Has the usual steering wheel shake between 45-65 MPH. I believe it needs lower control arms.
Has nice aftermarket 5 spoke wheels, but will need tires. I am including the 4 original wheels with 4 good Blizzak snow tires mounted on them.
Check engine light is on for evap code. I believe that it needs a cannister vent valve.
Previous owner installed a new front bumper with parktronic holes in it but the car does not have parktronic.
Various other small items will need attention, but the car is rare and very restorable.I have 1 key and no remotes.
I have replaced the following parts within the last year.
Battery, right rear window regulator,voltage regulator, rear shocks,thermostat and housing,lower radiator hose, new star hood ornament.
I am including these parts with the purchase of this car:
4 stock wheels with nice Blizzak snow tires, Two new upper control arms,two rear control arm bushings,rear springs,crank position sensor, new rear brake pads.Includes owners manual.
I am asking $4000 obo for this car because I know it will take some money to make it perfect.I will post pictures as soon as I can.
Car is for sale in the Reading Pa. area.
