I did say it needed work

Here's a few baseline pictures for reference.

That air filter housing looks really strange to me - is it correct?

Very nice car, and very rare.
Thank you.

It seems to fit like it's correct, but what do I know, it's my first Euro 240TD.

Looks like this one I just googled...

I bought these "Low-Spec" (pre 1982 facelift) headlights 5 years ago to put on this 240TD. Really, long term plan.

I happened upon a Euro wagon bumper today. No dents. No rust that I saw so far. Have all the bits needed including the rubber, rear fog lights, etc. I'll take some pics tomorrow. Any interest?

That sounds almost too good to be true.

Yes!

It's something that doesn't happen every day, indeed!

I'll PM you more details and pics. I should amend that to say there's no rust on the visible chrome parts. There is surface rust on the back, where it's not chromed, but you won't see it when you mount the bumper and it could be cleaned up pretty easy. The car looked like it lived in a salt free area, and at least part of its life in Arizona, so it was low rust.
