I need to thin the herd, and this project drew the short straw. The car has legs to become a fabulous ride itself with a little body work, or one could make use of the M115 and 4 speed in their already-fabulous 115 or 123.
Engine comes complete with a shipping crate shaped like a 123 coupe. I would keep the bumpers, lights, burled rosewood, and a few other items. You would get the driveline, everything under the hood, body, interior (less wood) and wheels for $1500.
Engine runs like a top with lots of recent work. Compression test results as soon as I get a chance to put the gauge on it.

I'm not sure if the 4 speed would easily bolt into a 115, but I have a feeling someone around here can chime in on that.
