1988 260E Southern California 64k Miles

I will be posting the pictures later today. This was my neighbours car and he was moving out of state. I just thought it was a good deal and bought it. As much as I love the car I wanted to change the color, wheels, side moldings and realized in the end it was not worth the time and the money to do it.

Car was bought in 1988 Brand New from Fletcher Jones by my neighbours mother in law. She put around 16k miles in the first ten years and then bought a newer benz. She gave this car to her daughter (my neighbours wife) who was a local school teacher. She drove it in the next ten years another 47k miles.

The car has 63777 miles now. I bought it two weeks ago. And yes I have driven it almost every day.

There were three things that were wrong with the car

i) Sunvisor Clips are broken
ii) Paint only on sunroof has faded
iii) AC was not working

I ordered the sunvisor clips through ebay and am still waiting for them
I took it to a Mercedes Shop and they charged me 170 dollars for the AC to vaccum, check for leaks, change valves and put freon. AC works fine now.
I had all the oils changed

Tires are in great condition
Interior is like out of a Showroom
Exterior is in Good Condition. No dents or scratches or fades. No touch ups required

I have taken it upto 90 and I hear nothing
Starts in a second
Car Temperature while running is 80 with ac is around 90-100
Oil Pressure is Full
Mileage is 20-21 mpg (i calculate that with the two tanks I filled up)

Late production 1988. It was built near the end of July of 1988.
In case Has power seats .
Color is blue-green metallic with a MB tex mushroom interior.

This thing really is like out of a time machine. But I think I will invest in a 94 so I dont have to do the upgrades.

Have the orignal books - orignal radio stickers and set belt stickers are still on the car.

Price..I think it is priceless....3700 and I am open to offers......................

will post pictures tonite. I also have some people at work who are interested so just an FYI.

I am loacted in Orange County CA
