1990 300E With AZ salvage Title. Also in W124 forum

For Sale:

The car is a 1990 300E with the 3.0 Inline 6 engine. Black exterior with Gray Trim with all black leather interior. Has 116k miles, 6-disk Pioneer changer with original Head unit that came with the car. All electric front seats, Tilt/Slide sunroof, Central Locking and alarm, Car has some issues that will need to be addressed. Please see below brief description of History and the Good/Bad,

California car from new and Finally in Arizona from 2003. I am the 3rd owner and purchased in June 2004. The car was issued a Arizona salvage title due to a front end collision before my ownership, The garage I bought it from done the fix up work and registered it in there name and they was the 2nd owner. All carfax records show the history of the car to be in order. I have all stamps in logbook from new up until car was sold in California; this was all done at Mercedes dealer in Los Angeles. I have all repair bills and oil changed receipts since my ownership.

The good:

Interior in very good condition. No rips or tears in the seats and dashboard has no cracks.
Replaced distributor cap and Rotor OEM
Has new plugs and wires. Bosch
Replaced Front rotors and pads in 2006 OEM
Replaced A/C compressor
Replaced Expansion Tank
Replaced water pump
Replaced Serpentine belt
Replaced Oil Cap and Air intake Hose
Has Newer 8 Hole Rims
Has 6 Disk In Truck Pioneer Changer
Gets good MPG
Low miles for a 17-year-old car. Less than 10k a year
No Rust at all
Most repair and all Oil change and regular maintenance docs


The Bad:

Paint on hood and roof are starting to fade, No clear coat peel bit some oxidization on the hood and roof from the same, The rest of the car still has a great shine. Has a small dent in the back panel shown in pictures prior to my ownership.

Needs new shifter arm brushings. These are about 7 bucks and about 100-150 in labor if you take to the ship

Needs neutral safety swift. Part is about 35-35 bucks and 1 hour labor
Has a very small Transmission leak, the is a few drops if left for several days, I was told it a seal and as long as you keep an eye on the level it will be ok.

Coolant leak from Top of radiator where coolant overflow pipe meets to end of Rad, The fingers or clips that hole this pipe in place have become loose over the years and the heat, There’s no easy was to stop the leak just replace with a new radiator, $200-250 for a new one.

Wood has some cracks from over the years, Very common problem, you can either live with it or get it refurbed

Rear Right back window needs new window regulator, $75 Used, I have the window propped as we don’t open the windows here in AZ.

Needs new tires on the 8 hole Updated rims or I have the original 16 slot ones that have nearly new tires on all four, Your choice the 8 holes with tires that need replacing or the Older style with new tires.

We only have one key for the car.



I paid just over $6750 for this car back 3 years ago and spent a few bucks on the above aswel but I just don’t have time to fix all the above mentioned now and I know I’m going to take a big loss on this one but she’s go. This would be great for someone with some mechanical No-How or even at the price someone just to get fixed.

The car does run, I have been using it periodically for a work commute of around 40 miles. The car still runs really well and gets good MPG. The A/C blows cold.

I’m asking $1700 but am open to OBO. Many pictures can be emailed upon request. I will put the car up on ebay next week if not sold on here or locally.

Thanks for looking

lee.
