Complete '86 300GD and '85 280GE body/chassis for sale

Post#1 » Wed Nov 08, 2017 11:41 am

**EDIT AGAIN**
Bumping this ad again. Have had some interest in this but not as much as I would think. Distance and work required seems to be the problem.
I had hoped to get some offers, which I did, to see what the market would bear but none of those deals worked out.
$7500 or best offer get's both. Or I start parting them out, which would kill me but certainly Recaro seats and jump seat and a decent engine and all the glas etc. is worth something.


**EDIT**
Just wanted to bump this post up. These are still for sale, after two reasonably committed parties fell through, not due to anything wiht the vehicle/s. Shipping distance on one and personal reasons on the other. Still going to be a great deal for someone close enough to manage to get them both home.

Hoping to sell the pair together as it was my plan to use one to fix the other but it seems like some of the interested parties were considering using them separately. So if anyone is interested in one or the other or parts or something like that, let me know, it's worth the conversation.



Haven't been around the forum in a long time. Many changes in life lead me to put my beloved but neglected 300GD up for sale. It is very rusty and I bought a far less rusty body to do a rebuild with.The new body is from an '85 280GE and has four doors, no rear barn door and all the glass with it, on a complete chassis. At this point I'd like to sell the whole package. Together or separate.
Too many details to list here. This is a big project not to be underestimated. I will be completely transparent about everything I know about the vehicles. There is much good. The complete 300GD was running (perfectly) until parked several years ago. (New truck and the birth of twins) before which it was a daily driver for years. The engine and injector pump were replaced with a brand new 617 in approximately 2005. Odometer doesn't work but there are much less than 100k miles on the engine. Recaro seats, and jump seats in back. Map light. Almost new BFG ATs when parked although maybe not good for the road anymore after sitting.
I will be happy to send photos and answer any questions for truly interested parties.
I am very realistic about the value. I want to move this project on to a good home with the capability to see it through. I can even deliver it within a reasonable distance. I am open to all reasonable offers, can't be offended. Feel free to contact me at jonathan@pivotspecialtyproducts.com anytime.

**EDIT**
It occurred to me that my description of "roller" in the subject line might be misleading. I meant to imply that the car rolls, doesn't run.
The car has all parts necessary to run, as when parked, just hasn't been turned over in a long time. If I had more time I could get it started easily, and may get to it if it isn't sold quickly. Thanks, sorry for the confusion.

Hi I might be interested in this project. Your profile says that you’re located in the Charleston area. I’m just outside of Greenville SC and would like to take a look at these one weekend if possible. Do you have a price in mind?

Guys, I've shared many photos with several interested parties. I have a drop box file of them. If any one is interested I will share. Just haven't seen the value in putting the time in to post here which I never find easy, when there aren't many serious potential buyers.

There might be more potential interested buyers with more pictures I think was the point. Just open up the drop box, and post a link here (no need to host the pics here if you don't want to) we can all click the link and get an idea of what is for sale.
