1999 C43 AMG for sale

Hi folks, time to sell my C43 AMG. This car is in amazing condition. I’ve owned it since 2003 and it has been expertly maintained by Bill and Ken Clark at Motorspeed West in Santa Clara, CA. It’s a California car with absolutely zero rust. The body is pristine and the paint is original and in excellent shape. Mechanically, this car is rock solid and is in outstanding condition. Only 1,411 units of the C43 AMG were produced so while they are somewhat exclusive and rare, parts are relatively easy to come by. The major components of the C43 are “over-engineered” for a car of its size -- it weighs only 3400 lbs. Much of the drive-train and braking systems are borrowed from bigger, heavier vehicles such as the E430 (engine), E55 (brakes) and SL500 (transmission). With so much less weight to haul around, there is far less stress on these components compared to what they were designed to handle. So while the mileage is up around 178K, there are tons of miles still left in this car. My job required frequent travel between the SF Bay Area and Sacramento so much of the accumulated mileage is from highway driving. The 4.3L V8 still runs silky smooth and quiet…until you step on it! Then it exhibits that great V8 growl that you love to hear. The original factory rating was 302 horsepower and it feels like every single one of them are still there. The leather interior is well-cared for and it is in incredible condition. The factory Mercedes/Bose stereo system is one of the best I’ve ever heard. You need to see and drive this car to fully appreciate it. For “excellent” condition, Kelley Blue Book says the value of this car is $8215. I’m asking $7500. Please, serious inquiries only.
