For Sale: Mint 1986 190E - asking $3100

I'm trying to help my great Aunt sell this. She's had it since around 8,000 miles. This is the epitome of old-lady-cars.

MBZ on Craigslist Los Angeles

Photos

Southern California car it's entire life, located in the foothills in Glendora, CA.

Absolutely perfect bodywork, nearly perfect paint (could use a buff), perfect interior (she actually could not remember if anyone had ever even sat in the rear seat) carpet, leather, door panels, etc.

Always parked in her garage.

Engine runs smooth, drives nice and straight, good brakes, good tires, no rattles clunks or squeaks. Good all around transportation car with some class.

Starts right up, many new parts, always maintained by Mercedes specialist, everything works (except the passenger rear power window).


Would be a great mom / girlfriend / kid's first car, very safe, very solid, not terribly fast, but it'll keep you out of trouble, and everyone will be impressed.



Price is negotiable, make me an offer! She needs it gone before registration expires next month, and she has a new Civic, and wants this to go somewhere it won't just sit like at her house.

Please pass this on to anyone you know who may be interested.



Questions can be e-mailed to me at drewpprice at gmail dot com, I can take phone calls too, please call 310 666 59 two six.



Best,
Drew

You're a bit high on your price expectations and you overestimate the condition of the car. Bad rear window and dull paint that you mention and the torn carpet on the driver's side seen in your pictures don't equal mint. However, you mention Cosworth at the end of your CL posting. Is this just to snag searchers or is it a Cosworth? You characterize the car as not very fast, so I think not.

Seems to be a nice car, but for $3,000+ I think this needs to be elaborated in detail: "The car had to have the engine replaced a year or two back with a used engine from another 190E, hers had just sat idle for so much of the time a lot of the seals started to go and it wore out prematurely."

Thanks for the feedback. You're right about the window and that carpet tear, I didn't even see it until I pulled the mats out. The window is listed in the ad. However, it has been a while since I saw a car of this vintage this clean, I am a Saab tech and our interiors do not hold up nearly this well.

The Cossy tag was to expand search terms you're right again, this car has the base 2.3L.

Like I said, the price is negotiable, just ask! I know it's listed high, but I don't think this is a run-of-the-mill $1,000 190 either, and I would rather err on the side of too high and attract the sort of person who would be interested in this car. For the right person back East, this rust-free body might be just the thing.

I buy $1,000 cars with mechanical problems that I can fix myself too, this is not that sort of car.

You're exactly right, I should have called more attention to that, but I don't have all the details. I'd put anyone intersted in touch with my Aunt directly, again, just ask!




My contact info is listed in the first post, feel free to shoot any questions or offers my way.

Thanks,
Drew
