1969 220d crate motor basket case
Hey guys, I am looking into buying a 1969 220d in very nice condition with a 240d crate motor sitting on the ground. The orginal 220d motor was pulled from the car because it was "smoking" at 100,000 miles and the orignal owner then bought a crate 240d from Germany. The orginal owner imported it from Germany then sold the car to my neighbor who has held on to it for about a year. He is not going to be able to get to the project so he has offered to sell me the car. What I am worried about it that a box of parts might have been misplaced during the move between the original owner and my neighbor and I would be stuck on putting the car back together. The sale of the car would include both motors and all original paperwork from sales and importation. Any helps, tips, forseen problems, and advice would be greatly apprecative. With the car in nice condition and the 240d crate motor on the floor, do you think $1,500 would be a decent price to offer him?
Thanks in advance,
