Free cars in Charlotte NC

A customer of mine has a 90350SD, a 115in parked outside shape, and another, I'm not sure about.
I will be getting pics and details hopefully before Thanksgiving.
Post here if you have a trailer and are willing to pick up the car before Christmas.

The 350 is immaculate except for the oil loss in the engine.

Also is a 115 280E

And what looks like a 280 SEL 4.5L 108 I think...

Does the 350 run or is the oil loss so severe that it can’t run?

Color? Rust? AC?

I will get pics for it.
It is an off silver goldfish color.
Creme leather interior, and it does run.

OMG that would be tempting were I a rich man. The outstanding engine in my SDL really belongs in a car like that. I don't get it - search results have it that the 350SD weighs just over 3900 lbs while an SDL weighs 3836. Meanwhile an '85 300SD weighs 3571.

Supposedly.

He didn’t say, but I suspect the city has frowned upon the amount of cars parked in his yard.
