parting 91 TE

i am reluctantly sending my families beloved '91 TE to the junkyard. but before it goes to the grave yard, i would offer it to benzworld members parts or whole. it is worth $500 to the junkman so that's my price for the car, you pick it up. as for parts, all the parts differing from the sedan model are intact. the rear bumper, bumper cover, rear hatch, rear windshield wiper and associated mechanism, rear tail lights, 3rd row seat (creme beige) and belts, 2nd row split bench seat, spare tire cover, etc.
the vehicle has 220,000 miles. the interior is fair, drivers seat is cracked and dirty. the hydraulic leveling system is intact but spheres have failed.
buyer pays for shipping, all offers considered. the attached photos were taken a year ago, the vehicle is still in the condition of the photos, less the wheels/tires and the addition of a few dings in the body. i can provide photos of any part you request.

Dude, I would buy the car from you if it's drivable. $500 plus wheels and tires so I can get back home of course...

radio has been replaced with aftermarket, all speakers are original. i have several factory radios if you need one.

it's going to the junkyard because i am done trying to figure out it's problem!
the motor starts right up! once the temp reaches 80 it stumbles and loses idle. i've checked ovp, fuel pumps, acv, ecu, coil, plugs, wires, rotor, dist cap. temp sensors the list goe on and on. i strongly suspect that the wiring harness is baked, and at 220,000 mi. i figure i've got my moneys worth. also, i need room in the driveway!

I love me a CIS challenge, I wish I was nearby and you're not so pressed with time and space.

Shame to see it go. If you go the parting-out route, would be interested in the climate control unit.
