The trim looked very good. In the back seat it appears to have spare pieces of wood too. I did notice it had some exposed wiring that looked as if it was being worked on, so it can be safe to assume it MAY have an electrical issue. I'm the least skilled in electronics issues so I would have to outsource that.
I am very keen. All I do now is wait for a call though. If I can get it for a good price, then I will go for it. If he asks too much, I will have to turn it down. I have budgeted about $2,500 on the car not including purchase price. I'm not sure what to expect he will want for it. Generally, if its a non-runner, I won't offer much more than $750 as it could have any host of issues, however If it runs, as much as $1,500 if it had other issues.
I'm not quite interested in buying one that is already finished because I enjoy the restoration process, and when someone is selling one, they are already demanding the value of the car, meaning there is little investment in it.
I had a 123 280E, she is gone now, and I have just finished (mostly) restoring a 124 300TE, which I will possibly be selling shortly.
Thank you for the advice. I will keep posted on what happens, if I hear anything.
