Serious inquires only.
â€¢ Good condition both mechanically and body straight
â€¢ No rust, good paint job, chrome details, minor paint chips
â€¢ glass in good condition; will need new seals for windows in near future no leaks though
â€¢ Rear windows need new regulator motors (left rear works OK, right rear does not)
â€¢ Interior seats in good shape
â€¢ Sunroof works very well (huge)
â€¢ A/C not converted and needs new compressor
â€¢ Heat works well and blower fan recently cleaned
â€¢ Third owner- previous owners were an older couple from NC, first owner from NJ moved to NC
â€¢ (recently moved to Atlanta from Durham, NC; now moving to Portland OR; rather not transport across country)
I have put a number of hours and money into replacing parts and adjustments to the Benz:
â€¢ All oil changes and filter done with 15W-40 heavy duty diesel (Delo oil)
â€¢ Fuel filters, including pre-filter, main filter replaced atleast every 15K; I also took out the fuel tank and cleaned and replaced the tank screen.
â€¢ Purged frequently with Italian tune-ups
â€¢ Every year I had the values adjusted prior to cold winter temps
â€¢ Replaced air filters as needed
â€¢ Replaced water pump (bypassed aux heater pump as it was useless)
â€¢ Replaced thermostat
â€¢ Replaced kickdown switch, A/C relay, glow plug relay
â€¢ had the entire front end suspension replaced ($2,000) â€“ ball joints (upper/lower), castor bearings, control arms, tie rods, etc
â€¢ New Bilstein regular duty front shocks (rear shocks still OK)
â€¢ New caliper on front left brake (new pads)
â€¢ Recent fuel hoses
â€¢ New primer pump (original style â€“ better for biodiesel)
â€¢ Emergency brake shoes (inside rear disc brakes) replaced
â€¢ Motor mounts replaced
â€¢ Replaced alternator
â€¢ Recent belts (water pump (2), power steering
â€¢ New front check straps (door stops)
â€¢ New Shifter bushings
â€¢ Rebuilt vacuum pump (new gaskets etc)
â€¢ Replaced rear rotors
â€¢ Recent brake pads
â€¢ Battery replaced 18 months ago
. . . many other random parts and pieces; hard to remember them all- all of this work has been done within the last three years.
Installed new Aiwa radio and speakers with aux jack for I pods in 2005
I will include spare parts and specific Mercedes tools. Also I have most receipts related to the work I have done to the vehicle. It is an excellent daily driver and has very good restoration potential.
You can contact me for more info and pictures.
Thanks for your interest.
