This is a FANTASTIC restoration waiting to happen!
As for the price... it's on ebay so I can't really give you a "set price".
This car does run and is still drivable. Although I do "believe" there is a broken skirt on a piston. I don't think it is a slung rod because the oil pressure remains pretty stable. BUT it could be a rod barring broken also....maybe. There is a steady knocking noise that you can "sometimes" hear upon cranking it, but "usually" doesn't start until about 3500 rpms. I don't have the time or the money to fix this bad boy up. I wish I did, because I LOVED this car. Someone broke into it and did a job to the back right window and windshield. The interior is cracked in a few places, the seats aren't the best, and the sunroof will open electronically, but you have to close it manually in the trunk. The middle switch for the mirrors is disconnected. The body on this car is in great shape. It does need a paint job, and has a couple minute dents. One of the wheels isn't the same as the rest...but close.
I paid $80 for just one of the rims! The one that matches is in the trunk as a spare because it's slightly warped. Comes with a BILSTEIN-HERBER jack and original Mercedes Benz lug wrench. I am leaving the Pioneer CD player in it, which you will have to hook up the wires, which is pretty easy (don't have time), and I do have the installation manual for that. The tint is slowly but surely coming off of the back window. Buy this car!!! Don't let this deal pass you up! Even as a parts car, you could buy this, part it out and make money! I simply DO NOT HAVE THE TIME! COLLECT IT TODAY!!!!
If you have any questions, please feel free to ask!
Thanks for looking!
This car will be sold within the next 2 days b/c I am moving to Florida soon. Check the date of this post. If it is after a week from the original post, the car is already sold and gone. Thanks again!
