1997 E420 Low Mile unique project.

Needs a little work, so I figured someone here could get a great deal.

I will sell it to a fellow benzworld member for $2700. It needs around $700 worth of parts, so no need to say how good of a deal this is.

If you post more info here, it might help. Some of us can't see eBay at work...

Selling for 1/2 of fair Blue Book! This car would be excellent priced with a little work! Car will sell to highest bidder.
Blue Book Price

My camera does not have a wide lens, if there are any particular closeups you need, just ask and I will get them for you asap.

1997 Mercedes e420. Low miles (~100k), perfectly maintained its entire life, and I have $10,000+ in all receipts, maintenance and service records. Gorgeous emerald pearl with tan leather. All electronics work perfect. No "CHECK" codes, and engine is in great condition. Runs great, starts right up every time and lot drives. I have video of it running, just ask and I will send you the link.

The car was involved in a minor accident, so small the local Police Department did not report it. It does not show up in the CARFAX, I just want to be completely honest! I hit a football sized rock that broke the bumper, hit under the car and triggered the airbags. The passenger side airbag damaged the windshield, and broke the rear view mirror. The rock hit by where the control arm bolts up. Please message me if you would like me to source the parts, I have found almost everything it needs for just over $700.

It needs a few parts including: control arm, control arm bolt, lower cooling line($25), rear view mirror, airbag reservice, radiator lower support. I have included a pic below of damage. Nothing major, but buyer needs to know. Paint is okay, hood has some sun aging, and some small scratches. Interior is 8/10 with a little bolster wear. The engine is immaculate, and I have every service record from day 1! Over $10k in receipts.

Basically, the car is bulletproof with perfect maintenance, just needs a little TLC to go to 300k+ miles! Really not that bad of condition, I suggest you come check it out.

Should be towed unless you put some work into it. I have driven it, but it will shake @ ~45mph, and it is illegal to drive with the windshield cracked. I start it up once a week, but have not driven it since bringing it out of my storage garage for summer, so I would also suggest checking/changing fluids. Since there are some issues I have disclosed, I am selling the car as-is, where-is. I am offering the car locally, and reserve the right to end auction early if car sells locally. Feel free to make an offer! Auction does not include the front bumper, but buyer has first offer if they would like it.

I have plenty of larger pics, and video of it running. Email me for more info or specific photos or video.

Good Luck!

Hate to say it, but that front bumper doesn't look right. Might be better off putting stock one back on. Or at least a W210 AMG kit would look a million times better.

It says it has a 2006 E55 AMG racing kit? What exactly does that mean? It has the drivetrain from a 211 E55?
