87 560 SEL Engine head bolts were helicoiled

87 560 SEL with 175,000 miles. I bought the car knowing it was overheating. Tore heads off and drivers side has had helicoils installed and head bolts were NOT tight. Pass side excellent condition. This would be a great project for someone with a TIMESERT KIT and some time. I donot have patience for this job.

I drove the car 30 miles to my house, ran like a clock , but eventually overheated, shifted fine, almost everything works except auto antenna. Good glass all around. Recline rear seats and heat works, Owners manual. Pass seat in front has a couple of tears , but the rest of the interior is very nice. No warning lights were on when I drove it. I also have several new parts , waterpump, temp sensors, intake socket ( used but good) , some rust but not bad at all...bubbling in a couple of spots and a crusty section behind drivers side rear wheel. Will need tires, these are older. Questions ? ask away.....
Car is located in South eastern Saskatchewan near North dakota / Montana border. I have tons of pics. $1,000

Just had both heads serviced , pressure tested, a valve replaced, heads totally cleaned , flat , in EXCELLENT condition.
