FS: 1995 S500 Coupe

Price: $2500 O.B.O.
Exterior: Black
Interior: Black/burlwood
Engine: 130,000 Miles M119 5.0liter V8 & a spare 110,000 miles M119
Suspension: Mersedes Hydraulic Self leveling suspension.
Audio: 6disk mercedes CD changer

The bad: The transmission slips, this was the next thing on my list but money has gotten very tight. you can get a remanufactured trans for $1300 shipped. Might be cheaper to have rebuilt. Could be something simple, but I dont know much about rebuilding transmissions.
The Electronic Throttle Actuator needs replaced or rebuilt, I have a spare but i haven't had it tested. (Car will NOT drive more than about 15mph due to limp mode from the ETA)


The Good: I have all the original mercedes booklets in the original leather case. I have replaced the engine wiring (upper and lower) with the mercedes upgraded wiring harness'. the SLS suspension works perfect. Runs excellent. Also I have and extra engine plus a large assortment of spare parts that the buyer can have free of charge.

I hate to sell it. I love this car... Its sad, but with me and my wife being full-time students and working full time while raising our 3 year old daughter, things are just a little tight. I sat down and had a long conversation with the Benz and we both agreed, it would be better to let another mb enthusiast complete her than have her just sit until either I can affort to replace the trans or till something else goes wrong from lack of attention.

Feel free to ask me questions, I'm flexible.
The car is located in Idaho Falls, ID

Yeah its going to break my heart to let it go, but I get a sick feeling everytime I walk outside and see it just sitting there. I'll make damn sure it goes to a good home.

Thanks MafiaDon
