Windsor California Pick & Pull? Anyone nearby?

I'm looking for some parts for my 1967 250 S (W108) sedan. Windsor pick and pull shows a 1968 250 series being placed on the yard on 10/12/2012. It doesn't say if it is a 114 250 sedan or a 108 250 sedan. If anyone is around the area I would gladly compensate you for a picture under the hood. I'm primarily looking for radiator, trans cooler, and oil setup for a car that doesn't have an oil cooler...

I'm going to be in that neighborhood tomorrow, although I'll be with SWMBO, we're doing some wine tasting. If I can convince her, we'll take the side trip and I'll see what kind of pictures I can get. No promises, though.

I had to look up SWMBO. Hah. Well good news! I found an exact match parts car today locally so I don't need to get help near Windsor. Thank you so much for the offer though!

Dang. I wish I'd had internet so I'd known.

The lady was a trooper and even wandered around in there with me (she drives a 215///AMG) until we found it, which was compounded by the fact that the date in the yard was actually August, not October.

It was a sedan, 250SE.

Nice enough place, but they charged us $2 each just to enter, and told me pictures weren't allowed. (One of the other employees just told me not to be too obvious about it.)

Speaking of obvious ... I won't be telling SWMBO that we didn't need to go after all.

Good luck with your project.

Thanks for the info. A 250 SE is fairly unusual. I'm fortunate to have found the parts car I found.
