Yep, it's got to go. I bought it from the daughter of the lady who's owned it nearly all it's life. The daughter had it the last 8 or so years.
It's old , it's tattered [cheap repaint in '06, fair-poor interior] and it has body damage on the drivers side [now a salvage history title], an exhaust leak, bad front strut bushings, etc...... BUT it's still a 1987 190D TURBO ~ the one and only year available.
It will start immediately and idles decent w/ an exhaust leak at the flex pipe. Currently the vacuum lines are messed up ~ previous owners brother pulled out the windshield washer tank and all vacuum lines too apparently and it's never been right since and was sitting a while before I bought it. I've tried sorting them out and I had nearly everything working properly then in my haste to get it 100% I got frustrated and I'm back at square 1.
I'm DONE. I have absolutely no more time or patience. Also, to add to my frustration, the town has given me a warning about any unlicensed vehicle on the property so I did put a 45 day temp tag on it. Someone come get this little ***** before I do the unthinkable.
Sold as shown in recent photos w/ the 16" CLK wheels & tire which is over half the asking price.
*NOTE* I'll also sell the '84 Chevy G20 solid panel van ~ 6.2 diesel, *4 speed manual* ~ has dual A/C, power windows, locks and cruise!
