I think I'm correct saying that there is no structural rust anywhere.
This is an Oklahoma car...very little corrosion here.
Paint is goood to fair...just had hood repainted due to fade.
IIRC there's a small crease on the F/R fender from a gate post.

Condition is good, but a 25 year old car is not going to be perfect.

Call Mr Rountree....he'll answer any questions for you.
Located in zip code 73080.

If you wish I'll drop by and take a few pictures and post them on Putfile.
...but that won't be untill about 24th or so.

Don't forget...price is OBO.

Has he ever replaced the timing chain in this car? You replaced the motor, how about the transmission, is it in good shape? Im only about 3 hours away, it might be worth a Sat or Sunday afternoon drive to go look at it(although I was really wanting a 240D manual.)

New chain was rolled in before I installed the engine....as was front seal .
I checked the timing last service....it was spot on.

Transmission shifts fine....I reset the vacuum modulator and throttle bleed.
