1988 420 SEL For Sale Whole or Parts

Hello all,

I have an '88 420 SEL 4-door sedan that is NON-operational.

At the least it needs a Timing Chain Guide and Timing Chain Tension Arm; at worst it could have a rod or a piston issue.

I am not inclined to put any more cash into it than I already have so if interested make me a reasonable offer.

I am willing to sell parts or the complete vehicle.

The odometer froze in May 2010 at about 170K, but I'm certain that I have driven it less than 10K miles between then and October 2013 when the above issue happened; it's not an everyday vehicle.

The vehicle is located in the Greater New Orleans area and buyer would be responsible for removing parts/vehicle at their expense.

More details email gpsis_2@hotmail.com.

Yow, that LH valve cover is an ugly sight...I certainly can make a guess as to what happened...
