FS: 1971 280S Parts/Restore

I'm attempting to help a family friend get rid of a 1971 280S. It's been stored for many years, was put away in running condition, but doesn't currently run. It's a non-original color, doesn't have much rust. As you can see from the pictures, there appears to be plenty of good parts on the car. He's retired and just needs to be rid of it. I'm thinking about $1500, but let me know what you have in mind and I can set up a showing, etc. The car is currently located in Nuangola, PA (outside of Mountain Top). Feel free to ask any questions and I'll do my best to get them answered.

Mileage is excellent at around 96K. It's been in dry storage at his house since 1998 and ran well prior.

If you are going to part this out, I would be interested in the wood on top of the dash under the windshield and the gas cap.

Sorry, I may have not worded that well. I'm suggesting to either buy the car to restore or use it for parts, but the owner I'm helping really doesn't have the capacity to strip the car.

UPDATE: Car is currently off the market. Seller is having second thoughts. I'll relist if that changes.
