FS? `85 123 Coupe w/Factory 5spd

I'm about this close to making room in my garage by selling this car. It's an `85 CE with just over 150K. Manufactured in September of 1985, it's a rather late 123 model - and an exceptionally late coupe. Only 665 coupes were produced during this last year of production - none, obviously for the US market. So, what we have is a euro-spec 1985 280CE with power windows and sunroof, leather, A/C and, the rarest of rare on these cars, a factory Getrag 5spd manual transmission. If there's any rust anywhere on this car, I've not found it. It's not perfect, or in concourse condition, but is is nicer than most any others you're likely to find. And it most certainly has about as rare an equipment package as you'll ever come across. Again, I'm close, but not quite there. A good part of my decision will be based on the sound and expert (some more than others) advice that I hope is about to come my way from my fellow forum members. I can provide more images for anyone who is genuinely interested. There are also forum members in my area to whom I can show the car on your behalf (although this might be a presumptuous offer, since I haven't asked anyone if they'd be willing). As for the $$$ involved??? I'm a bit undecided. I know that nicer-than-most 123 coupes seem to go for around $5-$7K, but those are pretty much all US spec models, or poorly optioned euro ones, and they all have slushboxes - not five-speeds. Suffice it for now to say that I'm somewhere north of the higher end of the price range noted above... If anyone's interested, I'll be forced to come up with a yes-I'll-part-with-this-jewel number.

That car is friggin AWESOME. I don't have 5-7 thousand dollars, but I can offer you a trade. I don't know if you want to trade, but I thought I'd offer anyway. Vehicles I'm trying to eventually get rid of are: '86 560sel black, '82 300TD-T burgundy, '84 Porsche 944 gold, '85 Porsche 944 red. Let me know if any of these pique your interest.

Thanks. I'm often open to interesting trades, but in this case I'm trying to create space. Now, if you had some cash and a good temperment, well-trained, 10 (or so) year-old gelding of around say, 15.3 hands, that's good on trails, and around other horses, goats, kids and dogs - and you could deliver said fine animal to Golden, Colorado...I might be open to further discussion.

Again, thanks for your interest, but no more vehicles for me.
