For Sale: 1990 300SE (W126) 99.5K miles, CA Car

For sale is my 1990 Mercedes 300SE. Mileage is fairly low at about 99,400.

Currently listed on Ebay for $5,700 OBO.

6 cyl, M103 fuel injected engine, Anthracite gray exterior, black leather interior. Power windows, brakes and seats, telescoping steering wheel, air conditioning, alloy wheels and all the standard Mercedes bells and whistles.

I purchased the car about a year and one-half ago and believe I am the 2nd California owner. I was hoping to use the car shuttling clients in real estate sales activity, but the real estate market has taken a significant downturn, with precious few clients to shuttle!

The car was repainted the original factory color prior to my purchase. The paint looks good, but not of factory quality. There a couple of very minor dings in the body, but those unfamiliar with the vehicle would have a hard time finding them. The front windshield glass has absolutely no pitting at all, so I’m inclined to believe it was replaced before I got the car. I have no reason to suspect the car was in any accident before I acquired it. The interior is in very good condition. The black leather is firm and the seats are firm. There are no rips or tears at all, only a few minor scuffs. The carpets are in good shape. The wood trim in some areas has finish checking which is common for a car this age, but no cracks or chips. The dash has no cracking. The vacuum locking system, and electric windows are fully functional. The large electric sunroof slides open and closes perfectly.

The engine starts immediately and runs smooth, and the 4-speed transmission shifts smoth. There is no rust whatsoever on the car. The hard chrome is in excellent condition, the soft chrome is losing its brilliance.

The adjustable electric seats and headrests work fine, except for the front passenger reclining function which needs some assistance going forward.

I purchased and had installed a Sony CD/mp3 player with flash drive, auxiliary and iPod inputs that power the six factory speakers. The power antenna function is integrated into the Sony stereo and fully opens and retracts.

Gas mileage for the car is about 15-20 mpg, depending on the type of driving.

Recent service and repairs include: 4 new Dunlop tires; replacement of front brake pads, rotors and sensors; a new muffler; replacement of the A/C control relay and sensor; new motor mounts; new serpentine belt with tension device; fuel pressure regulator.

This car is both comfortable and reliable. I recently drove it on a 400 mile round trip to central California and had no problems or concerns whatsoever. The ride is downright luxurious.

Serious parties please reply w/questions or request more photos by sending an email to

Or give me a call at (805) 497-0144. Please leave a message with your phone number if I'm not in, and I'll call you back

The car is in Ventura County, CA.
