Euro W123s 83 300D and 78 200D FS in GA (manual tranny)

I had hoped to put these two cars together to form one by the end of the summer but I don't see it happening and want them out of my driveway.

Rundown:

1983 300D Manual Former taxi (no rear seat belts blanks installed!) imported by a Vietnamese couple or company according to the vin tag. This car was my daily driver for over a year. ~160k according to the odo which is federal and obviously replaced. I honestly believe the mileage is fairly accurate as the car accelerates well, handles like a dream and stops on a dime. The suspension is TD in the rear and probably a TD sway bar, haven't measured the diameter. The engine is in great condition point blank. Oil consumption was 1/2 quart range per oil change which was every 4k. The transmission worked fine and has the 300D flywheel (the drive shaft moved on to my new 617.952). The interior is a mish mash of colors but the trim is all original only the seats where changed out. The door panels are euro fabric brown yellowish plaid. I have pulled the pedal assembly, brake booster, shifter and shift linkage from this car. The car had a front pass side ding and the drivers side was rusted so I replaced the quarter panels. The car was rear ended at some point which led to the ultimate decision of moving on.

1978 200D 109K Manual White with grey fabric interior. I bought this car with the hope of swapping the other engine into it. I have driven it on one occasion, the PO stated that the IP (M pump) was only squirting on 3 of the 4 barrels. I did verify the ODO was working correctly on my test drive. The interior fabric is in pristine condition with the exception of minor wear on the drivers seat bottom and a 2" rip by the door. The body has a fair amount of rust but no serious frame damage (jack points are still usable). I pulled the transmission from this car to put in my turbo.

From these cars I will be keeping the TD sway bar and euro lights. I have a set of federal lights if needed.

PM me if you are interested I am looking for $1000 OBO for both given the rarity of the 200D (which is probably completely fixable) and the condition of the motor in the 300D. Seperate $600 OBO. I really hate the thought of taking these to pull a part and would rather know the good stuff was put to good use.

The transmission is the same as the 240D. Whats not the same is the flywheel and short driveshaft.

Ah... read right past the part where you said you snagged the driveshaft. Oh well. Maybe one will come my way someday!

Hitch is gone. I am not parting these cars out, I want them gone from my house.

Hmmm, my '84 euro does not have rear belts either, it was never a taxi, Original owner said they were not needed when it was federalized. But my 80 euro has shoulder belts in the rear seats?

I'm hoping that some monumentally stupid governmental regulation didn't actually require them to be removed, like the US DOT specified lap belts only in the rear(?)

Does it have blanks inserted? There are other factors for mine, it is a manual, it has, lots of wear and broken strap on rear pass door, its the right color, it has TD springs/swaybar, the antenna and radio are OEM but added on afterwards and its a crate car, meaning it was assembled in a different country. I have nothing else to point to that fact but it sure makes it sounds like a taxi to me.

I have decided to part these cars short of any serious interest.
