Was running, but parked when I just gave up on the car through frustration.
Leak somewhere at bottom of windshield; which I and my mechanics could not track. This fills up the drivers side only with water.
Lost A/C and fuel pump during the same month, and got sick of bailing out the car to drive it. So I just parked it, and decided to keep it for spares for my SEC.
During a tropical storm last year, it filled up so fast and deep over one night, it got to the power seat electrics, and fried all of the motors, leaving the drivers seat in a weird, contorted position with burnt out motors.
Bought another Gen II SEC, and parted that for spares, so no reason to keep the SEL around any longer.
Don't have the time to part this one due to new job responsibilities. But I would hate to just haul it off to the scrap yard, as many W126 owners would like to have spares.
If you live in an area where you cannot keep a junk car or need a full rolling chassis, this would be a good choice.
Open to any offer equal, or greater to scrap value. All glass good. Good engine and trans with 115K. Lights, window regulators, sunroof, etc...
With a fuel pump, it could be driven away, or at least put on a rollback. Sometimes, just with enough smacking with a ball peen, it runs long enough to start and run the car.
Will sell with standard 15 hole wheels for rolling purposes. The 17" Aero I's (need refinishing) could be had for the right offer, but most likely will keep them for the SEC.
