Needs very minor interior touch up ($200.00) but paint and body great. Car is in N. Fl. at 904-282-4170. A fabulous driver.for $6500.00 " note; I bought the car from Bruce, read his sticky"

Not great but not bad I guess. It varies but I have gottoen as low as 12 and as high as 18. I think the variable has to do with todays sorry gas. I burn nid grade as I se no diff between 89 and 92 octane. I drive mostly short didtances and love the car. It had 112K WHEN I bought it a year ago. Previous owner did extensive maintenance on it which is why I bought it. This car should go 100K AND AT least 5 years trouble free. I have not put it any where but here but am getting ready to run some ads.

I don't have any ready I can put here but hope to by next week for ad. If you call the no. in original post I can make arrangements to get e- mail you some, The body and paint are great with no rust. The aluminum trim is dull like many Benz and I assume its clear coat on aluminum. I have tried everything to polish with no results. Others have had same issue. 2 seat panels need replacing, got 2 quotes each was $100.00 per panel I bought it from Bruce Mandel at Becks imports sight unseen and had it shipped. The car was everything he said and more, I just don't have room any more room

That was a nice car. Live in SoCal almost all of its life, one owner until I got it (although as a dealer I don't count so you are the 2nd owner). Guy spent a lot of money at Benz dealer, he owned some small Hollywood company AND was a Dr., and hasd four other Benzes. Like I remember one invoice for $1100 for new blower motor!

When I got it it had head gasket leak. So off with its head(s), gaskets on both sides done, valve job, valve stems/seals, full tchain job, all new vacuum lines, rubber hoses, tstat, radiator, full tune-up, etc etc etc. All done by MB master tech in his spare at-home time to give me a good deal. I still spent over $3K on it all if I remember correctly.

Drove great when I had it! GLWS.

I had a car that sat outside mostly unused for a while. Now it needs paint and has gremlins. I would have sold it if I had known.
