I have a 1987 420 SEL that I need to get rid of. I am a bad new fist
kind of guy so here it goes...The engine was rebuilt due to my timing
chain giving up on me(that is a positive since it has about 20k on the
engine). The car needs new brakes, the a/c is kaput, and the sunroof
will only pop up, but not slide back. The paint has lost or is losing
its clear coat. Oh and I cannot start it because my new battery dies
because I could not find the key for 8 months. Obvisouly this car is
an after thought.
The good news is the tranny is fine, the engine is rebuilt, most every
electronic component works. The seats and interior are in good shape.
Good alpine stereo, that is worth a good steak dinner for two I would
I Live in Atlanta and I need to get rid of this thing. I really dont
want a lot of money for it. I know it is in that no-mans land of put a
grand into it and have it up and running, then add a paint job. Or
part it out and make a good bit of cash. I don't really want to do
either, not can I. I have too many toys and my wife is killing me.
Plus I have my eyes on a 300D. Does anyone know of a place that will
buy a car like this to part it out? Or should I just try to sell it on
Craigslist or the like and try to find someone who wants to buy a
cheap car and fix it up. Any ideas would be helpful. i.e. what would a
parts car such as this sell for? I am not greedy and I just want it
out of site.
Again, any input would be great. I really want that 300D.
