Arrow For Sale Mercedes C36 AMG 1995 100,000 km/63,000 mi

For sale is my 1995 Mercedes C36 AMG . It is an original LHD car.

It's in my driveway in Nanaimo B.C. Canada.

Some attached pics are from when I first received the car. The current November 2011 pictures are shown with rain.

It's finished in color code 9199 blauschwarz metallic paint (it's a blue-black-charcoal metallic), with Black leather interior, carbon fiber texture dash, door and console trim, factory glass moon-roof, AMG factory installed performance package.
The subtle blue tone in the paint does not show in the photos. It looks more like a dark blue sky reflection. I've seen other grey and blacks that don't compare. The paint tone changes slightly as you move around the car.

The 3.6 litre AMG performance tuned, hand built il6 cylinder engine is easy to drive in town and an absolute rocket at highway speeds.

In 1994 and1995 Mercedes-Benz sent this model to AMG as a fully completed ready to sell C280 Sport. AMG performance enhancements were added before being distributed through the normal Mercedes-Benz network.

To quote from Imported Cars 1946-2002 2nd Edition, Covello...
C36
1995- 491 units MSRP $ 49800 USD
1996- 296 $ 51000
1997- 192 $ 51925
In 1995 approx. 50 made it into Canada.

Some of the unique modifications include:
- engine bored and stroked, increasing displacement from 2.8L (145 kW; 194 hp) to 3.6L.(206 kW; 276 hp)
-AMG high performance camshafts
- high volume oil pump
- full stainless steel, low back-pressure sport exhaust system
- transmission replaced with a stronger four speed design
- both front and rear disc brakes replaced with more powerful, fade resistant designs
- ECU remapping for optimal ignition and fuel ratios
- firmer shocks, springs and anti-sway bars.
- lowered by 1 inch

It has the unique AMG instrument cluster displaying kilometres/hr, grey & black leather steering wheel, and blackwalnut wooden shift knob. This is the Euro interior that is finished with carbon, instead of wood accents.

Wheels are AMG Monobloc staggered 17" alloy,
Michelin Pilot Sport A/S Plus Ultra High Performance All-Season
Front: 225/45ZR17 Rear: 245/40ZR17.

Typical features include:
Electric adjustable heated front seats, heated, folding remote adjustment mirrors. Cruise control. Rear window tints. It has the bullet-proof four speed transmission, not the weaker five speed of later years.

Non-typical features:

Sony 10CD trunk mounted stacker. The sound quality of the ten speaker audio system is amazing and makes my wife's 2009 ML 350 with entertainment option sound lame by comparison. Yes, it's that good, or the ML is that poor.
The Am/FM radio is for the frequency range in Japan.

It is a beautiful and exhilarating piece of machinery to drive.

I've recently driven a 1999 C43 and found the my 1995 C36 indescribably more appealing.

This car has been kept in stock form with original MB parts and comes with all original and optional equipment: AMG stainless door sills, AMG carpets, lighted trunk spoiler, HID headlights, glass sun-roof. There are two remote key-fobs (one New) and one valet key. Included is a Mercedes front window sun shield and silver-grey car cover.

EXCEPTIONS TO STOCK :
Not stock radio (has Sony)
Not stock grill, (has S600) style)
No stock wheel-wrench
Not stock front corner lights (has clear lenses)
No owners manual.

I had spent great deal of time searching for and locating this car for myself. It was found it in Japan. I purchased it 12/18/2009 and imported into Canada with the help of Zen Autoworks It arrived in Canada the following spring with 74,000 km on the odometer.
Compliance and Provincial inspections were completed locally by Coombs Country Autos in Coombs B.C. Final and continued servicing by CARMAN FINE CARS in Lantzville B.C. Canada

COMPLETED WORK:
This vehicle has a new, Mercedes made wiring harness, ignition wires and ignition coils. All were installed at approx. 75,000 km.
The ECU was also tested and subsequently rebuilt in the UK by
ECU-testing. ABS ECU's, throttle bodies, ECU's & ECM's.

Also replaced: brake hoses, brake pads, transmission fluid, rear transmission mount, transmission shift lever bushing, engine coolant, front tie-rod drag link assembly.
DLR module added and wired to the fogs.
New Fram high flow air filter and more small things.

The original/optional HID headlights are not fitted. I have them but they require each lens to be changed to meet LHD standards before re-installing.
Depo LHD aftermarket headlights with PIAA bulbs are installed at this time.

Inspections welcome, but at the purchasers' expense.

Note: I'm not much of a negotiator, but I am open to discussions with serious buyers.

You may want to post some photos of the car taken in Nanamio rather than the ones taken in Japan not to mention you will probably get your post locked due to not posting a price.

It brings out the beast in me, so I must sell it(really)

Today it's in my driveway in Nanaimo B.C. Canada.

The first four attached pics are from when I first got the car. The last five are current November 2011 pictures with rain.

It's finished in color code 9199 blauschwarz metallic paint (it's a blue-black-charcoal metallic), with Black leather interior, carbon fiber texture dash, door and console trim, factory glass moon-roof, AMG factory installed performance package.
The subtle blue tone in the paint does not show in the photos. It looks more like a dark blue sky reflection. I've seen other grey and blacks that don't compare. The paint tone changes slightly as you move around the car.

The 3.6 liter AMG performance tuned, hand built iL6 cylinder engine is easy to drive in town and an absolute rocket at highway speeds.

Wheels are stock AMG Monobloc staggered 17" alloy,
Michelin Pilot Sport A/S Plus Ultra High Performance All-Season
Front: 225/45ZR17 Rear: 245/40ZR17.

It has the unique AMG instrument cluster displaying Km/hr with grey & black leather steering wheel, and black walnut wooden shift knob. This is the Euro interior.

Typical features include:
Electric adjustable heated front seats, heated, folding remote adjustment mirrors. Cruise control. Rear window tints.

Sony 10CD trunk mounted stacker. The sound quality of the ten speaker audio system is amazing and makes my wife's 2009 ML 350 with entertainment option sound lame by comparison. Yes, it's that good, or the ML is that poor.
The Am/FM radio is for the Japanese frequency range.

It is a beautiful and exhilarating piece of machinery to drive.

I've recently driven a 1999 C43 and found the my 1995 C36 indescribably more appealing.

Recent service history-Since landing in Canada.

This car has been kept in stock form with original MB parts and comes with all original and optional equipment: AMG stainless door sills, AMG carpets, lighted trunk spoiler, HID headlights, glass moon-roof. There are two remote key-fobs (one New) and one valet key. Included is a Mercedes front window sun shield and silver-grey car cover.

EXCEPTIONS ARE
Not stock radio (has Sony)
Not stock grill, (has S600) style)
No stock wheel-wrench,
Not stock front corner lights (has clear lenses),
No owners manual.

I had spent great deal of time searching for and locating this car for myself. It was found it in Japan, purchased 12/18/2009 and imported into Canada with the help of zenautoworks.ca. see link to site:1995 Mercedes Benz C36 AMG For Sale Calgary Canada
It arrived in Canada the following spring with 74,000 km on the odometer.
Compliance and Provincial inspections were completed locally by Coombs Country Autos in Coombs B.C. with final and continued servicing at CARMAN FINE CARS | CAR SERVICE SHOP in Lantzville B.C. Canada

COMPLETED WORK:
This vehicle has a new, Mercedes made wiring harness ignition wires and ignition coils installed at approx. 75,000 km.
The ECU was also tested and rebuilt in the UK by Automotive ECU suppliers.

Replaced bake hoses, brake pads, transmission fluid, rear transmission mount, transmission shift lever bushing, engine coolant, front tie-rod drag link assembly, DLR module wired to the fogs, New Fram air filter and more small things.

The original/optional HID headlights are not fitted. I have them but they require each lens to be changed to meet LHD standards before installing. New lenses are all that are needed before reinstalling.
Depo aftermarket headlights with PIAA bulbs are installed at this time.

WORK IN PROGRESS:
These repairs will be done before summer 2012, or sooner if I have an interested purchaser.
The throttle-body harness will be rebuilt.
The Brake light switch will be replaced.
The flaky rear wheels will be refinished/powder-coated.
The loose sunroof headliner will be refitted.
Two flaky wheel center-caps will be replaced.

$14,000 CDN price is right for this car, once I'm finished.
The car could be had for less if the purchaser takes it as it is now.

Inspections welcome but are at the purchasers' expense.

Comments and offers are welcome but not regarding "book" value. I believe the book value story only satisfies dealers, car lots and low-ballers.

Note: I'm not much of a negotiator
