Arrow FS: 1996 S320 LWB sedan $2,800 OBO for parts or repair

Actually I'm still on the fence on this as I love this car... If anyone car recommend a good mechanic in SoCal to do a head gasket repair under/around 1000k (all I can afford right now) I might just keep her. Here are the details:

VIN: WDBGA33E5TA315958
Color: emerald (green) black metallic
Interior: Tan/cream
Mileage: 117,640

Options:
Heated front seats
Cd-Changer
Bose stereo

At 90,000 miles
  • Air filter replaced
  • All cabin filters replaced
  • Cabin air temp sensor replaced
  • New brakes/rotors/sensors front and back
  • New fuel filter installed
  • 3rd brakelight bulb replaced
At 110,000 miles
  • New MAS was installed
  • All new front/rear suspension as well as new tires
Factory OEM battery was replaced about 3 months ago

Other notes: wiring harness was replaced by previous owner and shows no signs of cracks/fraying.


Needs the following major repair: Head Gasket – the head gasket is leaking pretty good at the front passenger side corner, the oil needs to be topped off about once a month.
Minor issues:
The key sticks when you turn the car off and you have to play with it to get it to eject.
The radio antenna no longer goes up and down
One of the window switches in the main center console was pushed down (but still works).

Other than that she runs like a champ, A/c works great, always garaged, etc.

Feel free to P/M me with any questions/input or post them here if it would make use for all.

I agree , I'm getting help off-line from a local member on the issue, so hopefully it turns out ok. I would still entertain any offers though
