1976 BMW 2002 with a 5 speed manual transmission

This is a 1976 BMW 2002 originally from California. I acquired 10+ years ago and it where it has spent almost all of that time in garage. It is titled, registered and tagged in Maryland.
It has some nice enhancements:BMW 2002 engine - factory replacement with very low miles (reported to be less than 5000 - I've driven less than 50 miles);BMW 5 speed manual transmission from a BMW E21 320i;BMW E30 325 Lemmerz wheels in basketweave pattern with proper offset ET30 with 4 original BBS center caps (plus 1 spare with no cap);Original Behr radiator upgraded from a BMW 320i;Stahl headers and Ansa exhaust;BMW 320i rear license tag bracket.
Mileage on the chassis is estimated to be about 129,000 (odometer has stopped at (1)10992). The interior is in good condition with older style BMW 2002 steering wheel and aftermarket Flofit seats in good shape with no rips but 2 small burn like circles on the upper back left side of the driver side. It is in a location that does not affect seat comfort. The dash is in excellent condition with no major cracks (a couple of small splits at the base where the dash rises to fit the instrument speedometer cluster).
It starts and drives and stops. The picture of the engine compartment was taken when it was running - no smoke visible. The Stahl long headers to Ansa free flow exhaust sounds good and noticeable. The radiator and cooling system were flushed in the spring and oil was changed. It was repainted 15 years ago and looks decent (hood paint has dulled). Some rust at the bottom underside of both front fenders (see pictures) and jack points. The hood has rust along the edges on the underside. The trunk floor and shock towers are solid with no rust. The seat floor pans are decent with small rust on the passenger front one. The front windshield needs the lockstrip (included) installed. Windows roll up and down. The driver side inside door panel is loose from the door. Tires hold air but are old and should be replaced. With some moderate work, it has potential to be a solid, fun, cool daily driver (or at least a complete parts car which are getting hard to find).
Since it is a vintage used vehicle, it is SOLD AS IS. I've tried to describe as accurately to my knowledge and have posted real unedited pictures but I'm not a mechanic or car dealer. Have more pictures that I can message.
No reserve so there could be a new owner if there is a bid. Buyer to arrange shipping. Seller will assist with logistics.
I've been using eBay for many years and have decided to sell some of my stuff because I am too old.
Thank you for your interest.
