Well my car is officially totaled! D:
1986 420SEL US Spec

If you need any parts, the car will be junked in a few days so let me know now! Suspension is shot and only one wheel is decent. The interior is grey and pristine excluding a small rip in the driver's seat. If you want the whole car for a small price, let me know. You will have to pay for the transportation of the car.

The engine is great! Still starts after the crash. AND it just had the rebuild that replaces the timing chain and rails, etc. New oil in that. Clean headlights US spec that have a small rock hole in one of the plastic parts. I am taking my radio and speakers out. The windshild is in good condition with just a few small rock chips that have been filled, the rear one is good condition too except for a small amount of that white fogging at the bottom right, not really noticeable.

Anything else on there ask away! Engine parts are in good condition.

Shoot me an offer, you are responsible for shipping costs.

I am very open to offers as I need to make something off of this thing. Car is currently located in Glen Ellen, CA

as in cut the wires or just pull the connectors? Also, one of the door lights has a broken piece. Just the metal part that holds the bulb in, I ended up using a smaller bulb and a very small zip tie and some gorilla tape to hold it in place, usable, but still want it? I can also include all LED bulbs for them.

YES, All of them. I will use the best ones that are not broken.
I could use the connectors as well so if you dont mind cutting a few inches of wire off with them. I will also need the connector with the dome light switch if you feel like cutting that one too. Thanks

$10 for the owners and other manuals in the plastic cases if you have it.

My brother lives in Petaluna and could pick it up, or it could be mailed to me.

I am very sorry to hear of the death of a loived car like this and hope you can find another.

If the toolk kit is complete I would be interested in that also for a reasonable price

Sorry to hear about your car...that being said, it seems that at least part of it gets to live on in the cherished automobiles of BenzWorld. On that token:

How good is your wood? If zebrano in good shape, I could use the central wood, including window switches and the mirror joystick. Actually, I could use some replacement window switches regardless.

I'm also looking for gray floor mats, right taillight assembly (not the lense, the black backing in the trunk with the bulbs), thermo time switch (green thing that lives on the cold start valve), and assorted relays (depending on price).

My shipping ZIP is 92107. Shoot me a PM if interested - thanks, and good luck!!

I'm away from my computer and can't pull up the EPC on my iPad but if the steering box on your 420 is compatible with an '85 500SEL then I'd be interested. Should be home in a couple of days to follow up.

I'll call my mechanic tomorrow and see if he could tell me. The car will be gone on Saturday at latest.

Thx. I see an eBay listing for a steering box saying this part is compatible with '86-'91 420sel and '84-'85 500sel so I have my fingers crossed. Let me know price and shipping to 87901 if your mechanic confirms please.

yes I do have tail lights but everyone listen up!

We may have encountered a miscalculation and the car may be fixable! If it is, sorry for getting all your hopes up. If it isn't, all deals may continue as planned.
