The seats are cloth. They were nice, but not so anymore. 3 nice door panels.

Well, I'd be genuinely interested in some interior parts if you're going to pick a few parts up. Green interiors aren't easy to come by, and I need a few parts for my wagon.
Namely:
Drivers side kick panel facing the exterior (on the side)
Drivers side map pocket
Front passenger arm rest
probably a few other things if you want to pm or email me.

But to answer your question, yes, you should grab the trans.
Since it's a manual, it shouldn't be terribly hard to pull by yourself.

I pulled a four speed from a euro 300D non turbo about two years ago- with the driveshaft. I can't sell it for even $200 since then. Unless you have a project for it or a identified buyer....

Yes I did, yes and yes. Flywheel is being used elsewhere but otherwise the unit has everything; including driveshaft balancer.

This sounds like a 'gray-market' car. A lot of them came into the US at that time. The DOT was very strict about the headlights, so they had to be changed to US.

But a lot of the engine parts are still Euro. The EPA was tough on swapping those parts out, too, but a lot of cars, uhhh... slipped by, shall we say.

I was shopping in the early 1980's and found that gray-market was the only way to get a 280 Wagon. It cost about 10% less as well as did most gray-market cars.
