18 vintage Mercedes- parts mainly, inquire here

OK, I realize that this is my first post- I am a Subaru guy, but my grandfather is a Mercedes guru. I have been asked to sell these 18 vintage Mercedes which range in years from the 1970's and back. As it is most apparent, these cars have been sitting out for awhile. I have photos of the VIN plates as well as shots of the motors. No real car shots unless requested. In my opinion, there are about 5-6 cars that are worthy of restoration, but I am no expert, that's why I am posting here. Here are the photos. I am in the process of looking up the VIN's to see exactly what model the cars are.

I am not quite sure how or what to ask for any of this stuff, so I hope that some of you can assist me. I am located in central Louisiana.

RE: 18 vintage Mercedes- parts mainly, inquire here

Unfortunately time, the humidity and the pine needles have just about taken care of this fleet. Here are just some thoughts on what might be of value. The old steel wheels are still in demand. The cars of this vintage had some good ones! $20 each if not too rusty. The grills on the 111's will fit other models other than the 4-door sedans, like coupes and convertbles, $100 each if not pitted. The sheet metal, i.e. doors, could be worth $50 if not too bad. The motors are not worth more than scrap in the condition I see from the photos. Glass is not usable, maybe some side windows, liability on used glass on windshields, $20 each. All the tail lamps look like they are gone, but they were plastic and likely went early. Seats, electronics, and most rubber would be pretty much deteriorated by now in the outdoors. if there were any automatic transmissions, they could be worth $200 if any good at all. I am basing my prices on 25 years of "junking" Mercedes-Benz cars. Good Luck! P.S. Look at some prices in Hemmings.com for a guide.[8)]

The photos did not show up for me, and I am really new to all of this, but I am looking for doors for my 1980-1, 300CD. Do you have that available? Also, I need the dashboard and the wood fronts (I don't know what the proper name is) the wood that faces the front knobs between the two front seats.
I also have a 300TD that needs those wood front pieces and it needs the cigarette lighter.
Do you have that?
Thank you,
