FS: 1987 190e 2.3-16v Cosworth - *PRICE DROP*

1987 Mercedes-Benz 190e 2.3-16v Cosworth
107,000 Miles
Black Exterior/Black Interior

The Good:
NO RUST
Mechanically strong
Clean interior - Great upholstery Front & Rear
All electrics work
SLS still functioning

Recent work:
Replaced Fuel Distributor (CIS Flowtech)
Replaced Spark Plugs
Replaced Fuel Filter
Replaced Battery
Newer Exhaust
Newer Tires

The Bad:
Paint is sun damaged in several spots
Body has dings and scrapes, but all trim work is there
A/C has been converted to R134 but system has leak so it's empty
Needs Engine mounts
Dash has a few cracks

To be clear, this is a good solid car, but not a garage queen. This car would be a good daily driver with engine mounts replaced and AC fixed, or a good baseline for someone looking to restore. I have recently had an inspection by a very reputable euro shop and have been working through the punchlist. My goal was to daily drive this for a while, but it's just too small for the car seats for my twins.

Asking $4250 obo. (dropped from $4750obo)
Car is available in Tampa, FL.

These pictures don't show the paint issues very well... I'll post some more when I get a chance to take them: Click here for Gallery

I just found my stack of records and other assorted memorabilia that came with the car, and I snapped some pictures of the RUST FREE undercarriage while we had it on the lift.

Here is a gallery of all the documentation I have with the car. Inside the blue MB folio I believe there are all the service receipts, etc. (the original window sticker is there as well). There are also magazine with articles, Benz literature, catalogs, etc: ImageShack -

Also, here is a gallery of the undercarriage I took with my phone (sorry for the crappy images) from friday when we had the car on a lift: ImageShack Gallery

I'm dropping the price to $4250 obo -- I've got to sell this so I can get another car big enough to put my twins in. Take a look at all the pictures, the service records, etc. Thanks to Kiato from 190rev.net for the Carfax, which is below. You can contact me directly at steve (at) swiger (dot) com

Wow that is alot for 1987! My 85 190e was $23,800, MB USA sent me a copy of the original sticker, for free, about 3 or 4 years ago.

The average price for a car in 87 was $10,300 so $39,600 was alot!

In 85 average price was $6500, so $23,600 was also alot.

The Cosworth 16V was a considerable step up in price and performance over the standard model 190e.

I agree it is a great car, I was just saying for 1987 spending $0k on a car was a lot of money, hat is like $80k or more today
