280SE project

I responded to the request for a 280c project not realizing that my brothers car was a 280SE till he sent the pictures.

Oh well. I have them might as well post. The car has been garaged for at least 15 years. It was my sister in laws grandmothers car. She has original owners manuals. Ran briefly five or 6 years ago but has issue with fuel pump. Its a project. He wants $1200.
I have more pictures I can share.

I think its mostly surface rust where the paint is crazed, but honestly I don't know. I haven't laid eyes on the car in several years. There is another member interested in more pictures, so I will try to get over to where the car is this weekend and look closer.

It was my brother's wife's grandmothers car. When she died it had been in her garage sitting for years, and now its been in their garage for years. They have finally decided its not a project they want to take on.

I'll post more pictures when I get them.

Here is an album of photos:

The first rockers are the driver's side and the latter ones are the passenger side. There was a pile of lumber in the way on the passenger side so those pics aren't great. Spare tire well pictures took better from below than above.

The power was out in there so they are all pretty crappy pictures.

Overall the car looked solid to me. There is surface rust and some bubbles in some areas, but floorboards seem solid as do rockers and spare tire well. There was a big rats nest in one spare tire side.

The paint is cracked over most of the top with some very slight surface rust discoloration. It looks to me like paint from the trim down is original and still shines, while the whole top was resprayed with an inferior paint at a later date and it has degraded.
