FS euro 1980 280ce, southern CT

hello ive decided to sell my euro coupe. the car is located in trumbull CT.

1980 euro 280ce, auto, a/c. manual windows, hardtop, cloth interior.
english red, 205k miles. gets 17-20mpg

my car domain page includes parts i have replaced and more info/pics on my car, including a link to my thread from the day i bought it http://www.cardomain.com/ride/3332511
i also have ALL receipts for parts i have replaced

needs:
right side euro headlight glass, have a used replacement i can install
hood and right front fender have slight accident damage, repairable
rear differential, pinion shaft bearing noise at highway speeds. will come with a second good diff and two more axles.
fuel system diag, has a miss at idle, but drives great. will include a kit for testing fuel pressures on k jet systems.
speedo cable appears broken, stopped working recently
trunk has water leak, may be rear window seal

i drove the car daily for a year, and it always did great. even all the way to detroit and back.
make an offer, really just wanna see it go to the right person, because if not i would just be using it in winter.

car has steel wheels with painted hubcaps installed
i have a set of 14" bbs alloys, uninstalled vogtland springs, a full spare mb tex interior and a bunch of other parts from my 81 coupe i parted out as well.

uninstalled vogtland springs,
Damn that's tempting as I know how much work you've put into it.....

It sounds like you got into a slight accident on the right side...how bad?
Is the idle issue you mentioned the same as before or is this something different?
Do you have the original steering wheel around somewhere?
What are you looking to get for it?

hey fulcrum, the accident damage was there from when i bought it. i repaired the damaged headlight support and the old fender fit right back on because the damage wasnt bad.

it just so happens that a guy backed into it while i was parked, into the same spot i fixed when i first bought it. he only hit my headlight glass thank god, the damage is the same you saw at the meet minus a headlight glass but i have a replacement, though it is more pitted than the new one on the other side so im debating on what to do.

i dont have the original wheel sorry, the nardi is much better for a 280ce imo.

the idle issue is the same, it has gotten worse but i havent driven it much since march and attribute it to that.

id like to get $2500

i forgot to mention it has a dull plastic dash cap. i have a very good replacement but because of the labor involved i havent replaced it yet.
all these extra parts i havent put in yet make me sound real lazy but i really have done a large amount of work to it.

Grrr, If I wasn't on the road for another 3 weeks, I would really be tempted to buy!

Rust on the car? Trades?

rust isnt bad, one small bubble on each rear fender, frame is good. mostly surface rust underneath because the rust coating has started to come off under the floorboards. i have fixed a lot of areas that rust on most 123's, like the front rocker panels.

not so sure about trades, im really looking for a winter car that i can drive but neglect. i have a bad habit with buying more parts than necessary.
