Parting out 280C

Dear Community:

I have a '74 280C (manual, M110) that I am salvaging for parts. The body/trim is completely ruined and thoroughly rusted. The interior is pretty much ruined as well. This coming from a guy who hates to waste anything. Anyway, when I ran it to my folks' farm last fall, the engine actually ran surprisingly well. With your collective experience, what would be of value? I can promise it has an unwarped Solex, for example. Does anyone have any interest in a specific part?

A good, unwarped Solex 4A1 would always be of value (to me, for instance). How about door windows/window motors? Anything there? Also front brake calipers if they're in good shape (but given what I know about corrosion in Minn, probably ANTHING exposed to the elements should be suspect!). A manual transmission will always be of interest to someone -- they're pretty hard to find. It's a popular engine so I'm sure someone would be interested (but the trick is to find a local buyer since you don't want to ship something that heavy across the country).
Also, if you have the original Becker radio people seem to really pay a lot for them (considering that they sound like crap). Instrument clusters seem to be popular.

Suggestion: go to eBay, search for "Mercedes 114" and you'll see what parts people are offering and buying for this car.

Why don't you give me a price (offline to if you prefer) for the following:

Door window glass
window motors
Steering wheel if in good shape

73 280C

This weekend, I'll take your "wish list" in hand, check to see the health of these items, and get back to you.

Thanks for your advice/input...
