FS: (2) W123 Diesel Parts Cars, North Texas

I am looking to sell my parts cars to free up some space and hopefully put some good parts to use. I have keys and clean/clear titles to both cars. I do not want to part these cars, but may do so if they do not sell. Asking $1300 total for both.

First car is a 1982 200d with om615 and 4speed transmission. https://picasaweb.google.com/1124774...eat=directlinkHubbies on all four wheels. White exterior with tan colored mb tex/leather/cloth interior. I purchased this from a lady in Mckinney that recently divorced and decided to sell it and keep her 300td. Highlights include 4-speed transmission, bosch glass euro headlights, and euro rear bumper. I was hesitant to purchase it because the PO said that they had run WVO through it in the past. I was able to get it at a fair price so I went ahead and purchased it. When I went to pick it up, there was no coolant in the radiator. I trailered it home and upon closer inspection realized that it was missing a freeze plug. I replaced all of the freezeplugs and added water to check everything out. I have not been able to get it started although it is getting fuel to all of the hardlines when cracked. It also turns over easily by hand on the crankshaft. The throttle pivot bushing crumbled away and the linkage looks a bit wonky. I have a spare dash for it and it has the cloth/leather interior with neat looking dash accents in place of the wood. There is some rust on the rear near the bumper and there is also some in the floors. The window seals are in poor condition and I can see that water has made its way in at some point because there are stains on the interior seals. There is a small dent in the left rear passenger door. I am asking $800 for the 200d.

Next is a 198* 300d turbo diesel. https://picasaweb.google.com/1124774...eat=directlinkSilver exterior with navy MB tex interior. I purchased this car from a guy in Aledo. His high school son was the primary driver. Needless to say he got into a few fender benders and both front fenders and headlight assemblies are in bad shape. The front suspension is also wonky. It has the 5 cylinder turbodiesel engine om617 and auto transmission. Engine runs good without any smoke or weird noises. Transmission doesn't seem to want to shift into the higher gears. I haven't looked into the issue any further. I had planned on pulling the engine and transplanting it into my 240d. I may still do that if the entire car doesn't sell. There is some rust in the floorboards. The windshield seals are shot, good bundt wheels. I am asking $700 for the 300d.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask. I need to get them out of my parents driveway and I don't have the space to store them at my house. Again, pictures will be added within the next hour or so. If you need more specific photos, just ask.
