I just removed the tailgate from my 1981 300TD-T parts car.

Intended to remove wiper assembly, latches, etc... for eBay sale.

Thought I'd see if anyone wanted the entirety of the tailgate as is.

Advise quickly as I will begin disassembly within the week.

Additionally, I have a driver's side taillight lens (SOLD)from the same vehicle as well as both light fixture assemblies (with bulbs...bulb condition not known) (SOLD).

Rear speakers, antenna, and rear washer bottle assembly are in position to remove.

Make offers.

I am looking for the bottom plastic pieces on the pillars where the front seatbelts are attached, plus any hatch area panels that are in uncracked/unwarped condition. All in palomino or java (or similar).

I also am patiently waiting to come across a passenger side wagon tail light with no cracks or chips for $100 or less.

Is the SLS valve available? I would be interested in it and the hydraulic pump from the head if they are.

Car and parts are in South Jersey.

I have the speaker cover assembly for the very end of the roofline in Sienna.

No passenger's side tail light and no SLS bits.

The 1981 300TD-T I'm parting was last driven over two (2) years ago.

I'm can't guarantee that the wiper assembly still works, but last I recall it did.

I'm only asking $25 + shipping and if you install it and it does not work, I'll refund your $25.

Fair?

Let me know.

Thanks,

Jim S.

Rear bumper removed this afternoon. Decent shape except that reverse light mounting openings seem oversized. Somebody modified in the past. Also have corner shrounds that surround the rear bumper. Any interest?

Will be working underneath back end over next few weeks. Any interest in vacuum reservoir or exhaust components?

Advise.

Dash is now removed. It is badly cracked, so will be scrapped. But if anyone needs anything from behind the dash, let me know.

More generally, I originally envisioned pulling the drivetrain from this vehicle. Am now of the mindset to just put the cooling system back together, get the engine running and sell the rolling and powered chassis.

The engine is not original. When I bought the car I was told it was a transplant from a 300SD and that it had ~180K miles. There is no SLS pump on the cylinder head.

Any interest in this?

Since I want to run the engine again, I don't want to pull the preglow relay. Anyone want anything else non-drivetrain related?

Third seat?

Does the car have a third seat? I just got an 85 300TD that I'd like to add one too. What color is the interior? I'm a noob, so don't know the "official" colors. My car is white exterior with medium brown/tan interior.

Self levelling rear system?

My cruise control just died. Any parts available for that?

Thanks

I need some cruise control bits, an air box (Turbo, federal), and possibly some body panels (fenders)... f you care to PM with your prices, and the part number on your cruise box, that would be greatly appreciated...
