'79 300 SD--parting out

I just bought a 1979 300 SD (type 116) for parts. I towed it home, so anything you want is strictly "as is." I'm planning on keeping the engine and wheels, but as far as I know the rest is up for grabs. This is my first post for about 18 months and I don't have internet at the moment. The best way to contact me is by phone at (618) 936-9009. I don't have much in it, so I won't be asking a premium for parts. It can't sit in my yard long, so help my get rid of it. Thanks.

Further details

The windshield has been out of this car for what looks like several years, so some interior parts are rotted. However, the door panels and headliner appear to be in salvageable condition. By the way, the inerior is blue. The whole car is intact and most everything is still there, so if you need an SD part, chances are it's there.

I cracked open the valve cover yesterday and the camshaft is pitted and frozen in place, so I may be parting out the engine if interested.

Please call me if interested in anything. I'll make you a very fair deal on anything.

Thanks, Bill

Bill,

Is it just the camshaft that's frozen, or is the entire engine frozen/seized?

If it's "just" frozen, how much would you want for the complete engine? A friend of mine is looking into getting a 240D with a bad engine and putting an OM617 turbo in, and he's actually wanting to do a rebuild (he wants to see how much power can be gotten out of it ).

Thanks!

Going...going...

If you want any parts, speak up fast. Otherwise it's to Ebay piece by piece.

Thanks,
Bill

I have just spoken with Bill on the phone. He is a nice guy, I am posting here to say that he is sending me a door contact switch, speedomter cable, and the chrome blades. Just a little FYI for you people.
Thanks Bill
David

I got some parts from him, so he is alive and not ripping anyone off. He can't get to the internet though so you will need to give him a call.
Thanks
David
