Post FS: 1984 380SEC Euro

FIRST PERSON TO GET TO MANHATTAN WITH $1200 CASH GETS THE TITLE. CAR MUST GO!! Flying home early Thursday morning.

Currently on ebay with a winning bid of $1325 but for anyone here i'll let her go for less. Ring me, and come get yourself a bargain SEC....


Currently parked on lower east side! Call me 424-212-1686

Hi all,

Our roadtrip from LA to NYC is coming to an end at the 18th April when we hit NYC. Our faithful Mercedes which has been with us for the past 6 weeks need to be sold on to someone who can give her another life on the East Coast! Wish she could come home, we dont get rust free cars in the UK!!

She is a 380 SEC with some 235000 miles under the wheels but only 223XXX reading on the mileometer (stopped turning). Car check shows she was on 222,645 Sept 09 and 223,675 in Feb for CA smog and also when we got her and CA registered. We have now covered some 5000 miles to date with a couple more thousand to go...
The paint has faded from CA sun as has dash and front seat bottoms. All the electrics work and A/C heat are perfect. Small hole in D/side seat bottom (cloth seats not leather).
Mechanically she is super sound and being the euro has some super go! We always use 93 gas where we can get it. She also has 4 new tyres and an oil service in Denver 2 weeks ago. We have noticed a small power steering leak but we check the level at every gas station.
Externally there are 2 dents but she does have the small euro bumpers. The euro lights are also missing having been replaced with US type.
We have listed her on Ebay but will be willing to let her go to an enthusiast for a little less! Any offers around $2000 would secure. We are willing to let her go anywhere between Washington 14th April and NYC upto 21st April.

We have loads of pics of her in the various places we have been and i can take phots of anything that people need.

Nice car, nicer road trip!
I'd guess that you've had an engine swap rather than a trunk decal change.

1. Engine Change Guidelines
... vehicles with engine changes must be inspected by an official referee station and must have a Bureau of Automotive Repair (BAR) Vehicle Identification Label ...
Engine Change Guidelines - 22k

Good luck with the rest of your journey!

No not an engine swap! looks like the previous owner or first owner didnt want to look cheap and went for the badge. The vin and door sticker show it as a 3.8L.

You did exactly what I'm still dreaming of driving from the West to the East for 2 month with my old Mercedes,I'm sure you have memories lasting a lifetime.
To sell the car with the time pressure and the Mileage will be hard,I'm afraid
