'85 280TE Wagon; Grey Market - Gas Engine- Any interest?
I have an '85 MB 280TE Wagon grey market car, that was imported in 1986. It looks like a 300TD, but it's a 2.8 gas engine, intended for the German market. The dash pod reads in English, and the console lettering is in German. I'm the 3rd owner, and the miles are relatively low. It passed Illinois air regulations at the time it was imported, and I have all the needed import papers, and a clean Michigan title.
It is gold with blue leather, automatic, euro headlights, rear 3rd seat heater, original Becker stereo, 122k miles, fresh paint, new frontend, motor top-end serviced, no leaks, new exhaust, new brakes & rotors, working leveling, manual sun roof, original spare, and all the goodies (tool kit, warning triangle, first aid kit, etc). Non-working air. I live in Michigan, so the heat works great! Most everything it needed was related to the fact that it sat, unused from 1991, until I bought it in '03.
Is there any interest in this model? I can't find much info on it, except for overseas. If I can get a fair offer for it, I'd love to skip the Ebay route.
I can post or email photos, to anyone who is interested.
