Hey all, it's been a while since I've posted anything on here. I recently inherited my grandpa's 82 W123 and have too many projects going on so it's time to thin the herd. Bought this car with a blown auto trans so I could swap it to a 5 speed. For those who don't know, this car was only available for one year in the states and was never offered with a manual, making this a unique fun little car.

The goods:
-5spd manual swap (not fun at all to do but it's done so yay!)
-Good power
-awesome fuel mileage (40mpg)
-great commuter
-looks cool
-new tires
-no major mechanical problems
-Recaro heated/cooled seats

The not so goods:
-A/C doesn't work
-rear windows don't roll down
-sunroof stuck shut
-glow plug circuit doesn't work
-needs rear brake pads and rotors
-needs new serpentine belt (I broke the belt tension adjuster bolt...what was I thinking!?)

I am asking $2,500 or reasonable offer. 225k miles, please take this car off my hands I need it gone ASAP
Pics upon request
Where's it located? I would be all over this if I wasn't also trying to reduce my number of projects!
It's in Santa Clarita CA, just north of LA. On a side note, didn't I sell you a 4 spd a few years ago?
possibly...i've bought quite a few over the years, but usually grab them every time I see one in the yards to keep them from the I usually sell them.
