1973 280SEL Need Parts

I was stopped in traffic and someone rear-ended me and pushed me into the car in front of me. If anyone has parts, or knows of anyone parting out a W108, please let me know. I'll mostly need body stuff (bumpers, hood, trunk, front lights, trim), but may need a radiator and some other stuff along those lines. I still don't have the list of parts I'll need, but hope to have it soon. I added some pics here to show her car (which got squished) and my car, which was still able to start and drive after the collision.

1973 280SEL Need Parts

Are you in Kentucky? (It's always good to fill out your profile.)

I've got a bunch of stuff (probably everything you'd need), but I'm not sure how to ship it to Kentucky.

Ha! Your Mercedes took a new car enema and laughed it off, while the new car is DOA. Strong damned cars! So sorry you're going through it though
