The rear tires are completely bald and it needs a fan clutch. Those would be the two biggest things in my opinion.
Here is the text from the CL ad:
Hi Everyone- I am helping out a friend sell his car. I encouraged him to get this car about 4 years ago. Just this past week, we found him another cream puff 1987 300e to replace this one. With a little bit of work, you could have a sweet German cruiser. These were the pinnacle of Mercedes engineering. The car had come from a good home when he bought the car and was well maintained to that point. My friend just kept up with the basic stuff and ignored the non essential issues. The car is sitting in Norwalk, CT. Looking for quick sale with cash. Show up and be serious.
Here is the bad: bad rear tires , bad rear brakes, oil leak because of bad drain plug, needs fan clutch, sun roof broken, rear windows don't work, bad relay/sensor for left rear lights, brake and blinker, AC no go, clear coat is shot on roof
Good: Engine runs very strong. has bigger 16" merc wheels, rare rear spoiler, receipt history of oil changes and other work done over last 4 years, newer battery, alternator, thermostat, radiator, front tires, alignment and rear shocks. Dash is uncracked and interior is very presentable. Decent CD player.
Car has been driven long distances between Long Island and South FL last 4 years and never let him down. Its a W124! These cars are the cockroaches of the car world- you can't kill them. You could part this car out for more than I am asking for it.
