1964 190dc and 1965 190

Hi everybody. It's been a few years since I've posted, probably because it's been a few years since I've owned an MB worth posting about.

The other day I was made an offer that was very tempting... a few months ago I tried to buy a running 64 190Dc on CL for $600. It was sold just hours before I got to it. Flash forward to last week and the same car is once again on CL, but this time it's a part of a 2 car package, the other being a 65 190 gas. The 64 is really the only one I'm interested in owning, as it's Diesel and a runner, but he wants to sell them as a pair, and the 65 has a lot of almost pristine body/misc parts that would be nice to use to complete the 64, such as the passenger side fintail and headliner. The seats and carpet, plus that window you see with a bag over it, have already been transferred. The gas car is not drivable, might not even run.

So, since I've been made this attractive offer (which involves getting rid of a truck I want to sell anyhow) what I would like to do is to get them, switch as many parts as possible between the two to make the 64 rather nice, and then..... oh, what to do with the 65. Part it out? Sell it whole as a parts car? I have never been a fan of scrapping a classic car, even if every worthwhile piece has been removed from it, however I don't see any other way within my means to fix up this 64.

So I come to you, my Benz loving brothers, what should I do with this 1965 190 that does not run and will be missing quite a few parts? I've been told I could make money selling individual parts in an eBay store, but then I am still left with a carcass. Would anybody be interested in the 65 after it had parts cut off? I am not selling it at this time, since I don't own it, just trying to gauge interest...
