Hypothetically speaking...

...you're in a local junkyard where you pay a dollar to go through the rows and pull your own parts (yes, such places still exist) and you come across a 210 exactly like your own. You don't really need anything but you have just enough time before the place closes to pull ONE part (or set) and you're going out of town for a month tomorrow so the car will be picked clean upon your return.

The prices are real.

Personally, I'm torn between these two...

Mirror Outside ...................................14.15
Strut............................................. .. 17.86 ........... 1.00

I guess that 'strut' would be what they'd call the rear shocks on the wagon. $450 ea from most parts places. brand new.

The driver's mirror alone approaches $400 with all the parts.

I used to be frequent visitor to "The biggest junkyard in the World" located in Hayward CA.
That thing was really exiting when I drove VW on older Mercedes.
Transmission for $60, alternator for $20 not to mention that $2 entry fee "covered" whatever you could fit in your pockets. Still have like 50 spare light bulbs.
Unfortunately the discount junkyard doesn't carry W210 yet, because those go to the dismantlers who charge for used parts 50% of dealers prices in the area, what quite often is the Duval's price for new stuff.

I was speaking hypothetically, Ernie. Just looking for some insight on what's valuable on this car.

In my experience there, it doesn't matter. If it fits the general description, that's the price.

If I were you I'd remove anything easily removable (coils, MAF, airbox, alternator, etc.) and sell it here or on ebay. $6.60 for a COIL? Wow. And no core on it.

I guess there has to be some compensation for living that close to crazyville.

Take care and enjoy the ride,
Greg
