1992 500sel dents on every panel new radiator, 222,000 miles, won't upshift into 4th

This car belongs to my incredibly wealthy mother-in-law/father in-law.
They are 88 and 89 years old. The engine is amazingly great, with 220,000 miles on it, but the transmission will not shift up into fourth gear. Every panel of this thing has been dented. I will not spend a minute defending this car. I can drive it anywhere, but it will not upshift. My MIL is a filthy rich broad who thinks the car is worth a fortune. I think the car is worth about 10 cents. Make an offer. I don't care. I can scrap it out for about $450. I will send photos to any real interested parties. My FIL has not driven this thing in more than ten years.

A classic "Best of Craigslist" ad.

It might help to post the location of the vehicle. Sounds like you need someone local.
