OR - 1990 300TE 4matic - red - parts or driver

Located in Portland Oregon

$1500

1990 300TE wagon 4matic. Clear title, 307k miles. Was a daily driver until I picked up an 86 190d a week ago.
Tan Leather interior, heated seats, 3rd row, cargo net, original cat converter, perfect dash. Car looks good.

Difficult to start when cold (like the gas is draining back into the tank?). Transmission shifts perfectly, and no slipping. Don't think front drive is working, ABS light is on. Had 4 nearly new Toyo tires until I split the sidewall on one,
spare on now.

Thanks

FYI re the donation. Tax law has changed. You used to be able to claim your estimate of fair value of the donation on your return. Newish law only allows you to claim what the goodwill sells the car for which will likely be much less than $1500. just an fyi.

Correct. Tax law changed in 2005. Actually, you used to be able to claim retail. (!) In 99% of cases, you now only get to claim whatever the non-profit sells the car for, usually at auction. Which, of course, is wholesale. There are a very few non-profits that directly use the car to help a low-income person. (See box 5b on the IRS 1098C form.) In that case, you can claim "private party value" which in the case of the car shown above, is probably pretty close. The problem you'd have with the particular car above is convincing a non-profit that a 300K Benz would be a good car for a low-income person. (Didn't I see a member here say "There is nothing more expensive than a cheap Mercedes.")?
