For sale 1987 190D 2.5 Turbo

Solid, reliable and fun to drive performer that gets great fuel mileage with rebuilt transmission ready to go many more miles!

Year/Model: 1987 190D 2.5 Turbo
Mileage: 215,750
Exterior: Smoke Silver
Interior: Burgundy
Vin#: WDBDB28D6HF335852
Location: Austin, TX
Price: $3,650

The Good
Reliable (602.961) 2.5 Turbo diesel engine. 1987 was the only year Turbo available in 190 - 1,300 produced worldwide.

Mechanically, the car starts and runs strong and the engine has good compression

Electrically, strong front electric windows and sun-roof, power seats operable

Cosmetically, the exterior paint and maroon interior are in great shape for age

Tires, New Firestone tires purchased 1/07

Sound system, Eclipse replacement CD player and back speakers

Safety features, front and rear anti-roll bars, as well as anti-dive and anti-squat geometry. Airbags, ABS brakes and seatbelt tensioners, advanced for the time.

All service records back to original window sticker:
• includes original owner stamped maintenance to 125,000 miles plus all second owner files

Receipts for the work I’ve done to it in the last six months with Austin area Mercedes-Benz shops
• rebuilt transmission - from Austin Autohaus ($2,100)
• major A/C work completed – converted to 134, installed new compressor, a/c receiver dryer and expansion valve from German Star motors ($1,4000)

The Bad
• 3 cracks in the dash.
• cruise control inoperable
• the back windows don’t go down (regulators)
• the drivers seat springs is a little saggy
• crack windshield (still passed inspection)

The Ugly
The AC works well, however it only works in the middle two vents. Evidently, there is a vacuum leak and so the outside vents on both sides don’t work with AC.

This can be repaired but the dash would have to be removed.

THIS WORK DOES NOT HAVE TO BE DONE, but if one was invest in replacing the dash while removing it to fix the AC, this would be an incredible example of a rare car.

The back-story
I love this car and hate to get rid of it but I have a second baby on the way and could use something bigger.

I purchased with 214,000 miles from the 2nd owner, a nice older lady moving out of state who posted on Craig’s List.

She bought in December 1994 from Continental Cars (now Mercedes-Benz of Austin) with approx. 125,000. She had regular service from dealer and high-end MB only shop (Bens Workshop).

The original owner bought it in May 1987 at Norman Scott in Houston and had documented service performed there too.

PM or e-mail me for more pics, questions, etc.

That is not true. The production and limited number applies only to North American version. The 2.5 Turbo was available in Germany all the way from 1987 to the end of 190 production.
