FS 1 owner 83 MB 300D turbo for rebuild or parts

Thanks to all who replied to my thread regarding the wreck of my 1 owner car in the Diesel discussion forum: Decision time in DFW - sell for parts or fix Decision has been made: I've decided to get out of the old car hobby and sell the car (or perhaps donate to charity). It's at the body shop and I'm not in a position to part it out. I need to sell and have the buyer remove soon the entire car. I'd like to see it go to a forum member to rebuild or use for parts. I need to move it next week to avoid storage fees. I have salvage companies coming to look at it next week to make an offer. Make me an offer for the entire car. At the time of the wreck, it was mechanically sound but in need of a new paint job (no rust except two spots on the edge of the sunroof, but some peeling paint down to primer from hail damage repair in the late 80's). Recently installed are: new vacuum pump, new front rotors and calipers plus ceramic Akebono pads on all four wheels. AC was running (fully charged with R12, new compressor and hoses, drier, expansion valve). Engine is strong 617 turbo. I have complete records since new as I am the original owner (215k miles actual). Car only has one front seat as I have the originals out for repair (repair complete but will sell them separate as used parts). I also have a large number of parts I had accumulated planning to do a full restoration. New still in the box (euro style depo headlights and corners, SL style grill, complete set of door front and rear windscreen rubber, 8 piece new body side trim with new red mounting buttons, complete new monovalve that is no longer being made, molded plastic blue dash cover (glue on type), new (not rebuild) set (5) monarch injectors (from Sean Watts), about 40 lbs of R12 (in three 30 lb canisters), good supply of new gaskets for power steering pump rebuild, oil filters, fuel filters, etc.). In addition to the above new items, I have a set of 4 bundts in premium condition mounted with Michelin tires with about 90% tread, repaired pair of front seats in blue MB tex, extra set of blue carpets, extra climate control modules, extra 240 style dash clock, extra sets of console of wood to be refinished including the two drink holder for the console. Trim pieces, etc. Plan to sell all if not to a forum member, they will go on ebay or craig's list after next week.

Good luck with the sale. I wish I could help out, but I have more cars than places to park them as is.
