FS 1988 W126 560SEL Any and all parts

All prices are plus shipping, and anything large I will pallet and drop off at FedEx. Your shipping price and if you want ins. All prices also OBO.

The transmission went and as the rebuild/replace quote was astronomical I am 350 swapping it. If you need a trans core, it's the 4 speed auto. $50

560 (5.6L) V8. Ran well, did regular oil changes, was very pedal responsive and could spin the 285's on the rear. Some lifter tick on pass head, but not bad. Wouldn't hesitate to continue running this engine if it weren't for the Chevy swap (cheap and powerful ). $500 just long block (w/ acc)? Make offer on wiring harness pulling too (more labor on my part to not cut it out).

All exterior trim. Grey plastic with chrome strip. Decent condition. F/R bumpers and 4 doors lower panels and rockers. Remember this is an SEL so long rear doors. I pulled it all to do rust treatment and decided it'd be cool to shave the sides and do less ginormous bumpers (also doing a rear hitch bumper so this can be my tow rig). $400?

Grey interior, all power EVERYTHING, willing to sell the seats for a decent offer. Everything works, but the dampers in the seats are tired so it's even more like riding a boat.

The trunk is already stripped.

I will post more things and pictures as I delve into this, I'm trying to find out what to salvage and pull and what people have interest in. I'm open to any requests, all I can do is say no.

560 Parts

If grey interior front/rear seats + arm rest leather is not dry rotted, torn, cracked I'd be interested in buying the seat covers only (easy pull); not the whole seats (shipping would be stratospheric) and just the center cardboard portion of the door cards (easy pull). Send me a PM.

I would take F/R bumpers if in good condition. Do you have any pictures?
