FS 1988 420 SEL likely for parts

This car was my daily drive for years, and my son's daily drive until he didn't realize that traffic had stopped in front of him. The car still runs, but the collision damaged the radiator so it won't hold coolant.

In addition to the accident damage, the transmission slips a bit between 2nd and 3rd gear. It has been this way for 3 years and has not gotten any worse, but the transmission is not perfect. There is also an issue with the exhaust. I don't know the exact problem there. Finally, the car has the rust that one would expect from 14 New England winters.

The car has Goodyear Assurance tires with about 15K miles on them, and the rims are in good shape for a car of this age. The interior is worn as expected, but there is no damage (no ripped seats, etc). Most of the body panels and doors are in good condition.

The car is located in Quincy, Mass. It could be a very good value for someone who wants to part it out, or who needs parts for an existing W126. I don't have the space available to part it out myself, so I just need to get rid of it.

I am not listing a price since I'm currently seeking quotes from junk yards in the area, and I don't know what they will offer. But junk yard rates are the general ball park here.
