Strange trades in Audi land

One of my overseas clients sells stuff on eBay, and since return postage is
often prohibitive, he sends the returns to me.

For trade: 1:43 model of Zil 117 limousine, made in Russia, white, die
cast, absolutely new in the box. Doors, trunk and hood open (hood slides
forward, then lifts from rear), the hood ornament came unstuck, but a drop
(small drop) of glue will put it back.

Looks like an older Mercedes 300SEL, but with a wall-to-wall chrome grille
like a 60s Ford Galaxy.

If you are in the US and you collect model cars, this one is pretty tough
to get, although not terribly expensive.

I want to trade it for a working sunroof motor and gearbox assembly for a
1986 type 44 - this is a junkyard item, perhaps $10 at the local pick and
pull, but somehow I am just not motivated to slog through the mud under the
blazing Florida summer sun while feeding the hordes of mosquitoes in order
to retrieve this one small part.

We should each pay our own postage ($3.50 priority mail or something).

Best Regards,

Mike Arman
