87 300E 5 speed - Delaware

I'm selling my rusty, trusty 87 300E 5 speed. The car has 257k miles and loads of records. Due to the rust it may be better as a parts car but someone with more time and skill than me may want to fix it. The car is lowered with H&R springs and sportline sway bars. This would make a perfect candidate for a 5 speed swap into another W124 and have lots of good parts left over. Everything aside from the cruise and rear windows on the car works as it should. The car will come with 15 hole stock wheels since I am going to need the wheels currently on the car for another upcoming project. There is rust in the rockers and at all four jack holes. If the car doesn't sell I will end up parting it out but SWMBO isn't thrilled with the idea of another parts car. If I do part it the suspension parts and transmission are already spoken for. $2000 OBO

Here are some pictures from yesterday. I'm picking up the replacement tonight so I need this gone sooner rather than later to preserve marital bliss

Here are some pictures I took yesterday with the NA headlights. If this doesn't sell by spring I'm parting it out.

Me too. I have had a few tire kickers but no real interest. I'm in a much better place now space wise since I sold a bunch of W123 parts so parting it out wouldn't be such a PITA.

I'm kinda curious though while you have it, what's the engine rpm in 5th at like 70? I know on the 94 E320 we have, it churns at like ~2800 at about that speed. I wonder if lower rpms would yield better gas mileage.

Since its a 1987, does that mean that it is a conversion? I thought it was only 1986 and 88 they brought over the very limited supply of manuals.

If you still have it by the end of the summer and the funds are in order I might highly consider it but no promises.

Its about 2500 RPM at 70 MPH compared to 3000 RPM in the 300TE with the same motor. Much better gas mileage than the wagon too. I was planning on driving it to work all week but the clutch went south on the way home this afternoon. Looks like its going to get parted since I don't want to put any money into it. Keep an eye out for a parts thread in a month or so.
