Looking for interest: 1980 300td and 1985 300d in Quebec, Canada (but easy export)

Due to personal circumstances I need to dispose of one or both of my w123s. Located in Gatineau, Canada, 45 minutes from US border at Ogdensburg, NY.

Both of these cars are more than 25 years old so can be imported into the USA with minimal fuss.

Also both came from the USA originally (I have photocopies of the original titles), so that should make re-importation easier. I can deliver the sedan to the Canadian side of the border, or to the US border station if you are going to meet me there with the paperwork, OR you use a customs broker and have the paperwork done and delivered to US Customs by the broker (Customs has a secure pending yard where the car can be left pending pickup by you or a transporter).

1985: 300d sedan, blue. 122,000 miles. Was one-owner (except for one year) NJ car before I got it at 80,000 miles in 2010. The good: Exceptionally smooth and powerful, good-running example. Newer radiator, new water pump, rotors and pads all around and exhaust 2015. Euro lights (Depo) and knockoff AMG black grille. Front end tight and quiet. Driver's seat still nice. Rare euro 14" alloy wheels (from euro coupe package). Michelin tires. Oil sprayed yearly so very good underneath. Synthetic Rotella T6 every 4k miles. Mobil 1 in the transmission since 2015. Diff fluid changed 2015. Injectors from Greazzer in 2015. Cons: needs a complete paint. Some rust spots that I ought not to have let get so far. Bad paint on passenger door and front fender (I did it). Whine from diff or one of the rear axles at about 50 mph. $4,000 CAD or $3,000 USD.

1980: 300td, from Texas/Oklahoma. Excellent non-turbo motor, plenty of go and runs smooth. New radiator, ACC servo (metal). Like new underneath, never driven in Canadian winter. Surface rust spots from paint chips and minor dings never taken care of, my bad. Brakes were newish but it's been sitting. Have a lot of work into it (changed out most of interior due to TX sun damage, etc.) but long story on this one. Basically the dash is apart with a repair of the ACC two-thirds done and the shop has gone deadbeat on me and left me with this for six months. Needs a bunch of small stuff - a minor project. $2,500 CAD or $1900 USD.

A couple of pics. Both a couple of years old.

This is a sudden thing. I hadn't prepared pics. Bear with me....
