260 264 manual conversion
I have been offered a bulk lot which includes a 1981 manual 264 GLE. I do not have time to bring it back to active duty due to work and other projects and cannot store it. It has sat for 15 years. Is anyone interested in it? It is in great shape, has all of the GLE features, has a bump in one door though I am told Voldat has the right colour GLE door ready to go. It would need brakes overhauled, headlight reflectors, battery, 4 tyres, all fluids and probably some shocks. Windscreen would need to be replaced too, the seals are a bit daggy. Glove box needs some glue too.
The interior is in great shape, everything there and working. Factory micro-processor radio. Leather seats in pretty good shape.
The engine turns over though is an unknown. It looks in good shape and was serviced (lots of receipts etc.)
I am told a manual is very rare, though 264 knowledge is not my thing.
Comments, ideas? Anyone want to restore it, my sums say about 2k and a couple of weekends to get it to a roadworthy.
Anyone want the gearbox conversion? It seems a shame to wreck, they were the biggest and best in their day. Reality does not always agree with the 'right' thing to do though.
