FS:1993 500E

Regretably selling my beloved 500E beautiful unusual Garnet Red well maintained by the best shops in SoCal Mr Mb and Beach Benz.
180k miles. best thing about the car is it's bone stock original and no modifications. all the body panels and glass are original (sticker on the rear bumper, sigla factory glass), original paint faded in some areas. if you're looking for a restored "10" this isn't it but if you're looking for an honest, original car that drives well this is it. 2 items that are minor and i was going to address at some point is the driver's seat (electrical cable) and power steering pump. i was going to do those at my leisure because i never thought i'd sell this one but an opportunity to purchase a special porsche suddenly came up and I need to come up with some funds.

Some pictures:

Speaking of videos check out the Garnet Red in this 500E video

And finally I forgot to add in the intent of full disclosure 2 more things, headliner in the back is loose and also driver side mirror black plastic is cracked.

I have to say, that having a 190E in Garnet Red, the color is gorgeous. I just wish that so many Mercedes of yesteryear were not so silver, black, white etc... when so many other great colors were available...

Let me just say. That licence plate I need that for mine and I also really like that color, it stands out agianst the normal blacks and whites/silvers and my family used to have a 300E 4matic in the same color and I used to make fun of it by calling it "purple"... but it has grown on me

They just dont make em like they used to; even the germans have slacked off

How much are you asking for it? And do we assume you are located in Southern CA? I think ive seen this car rolling around Huntington beach before..

Once, i thought i was wrong; but i had only been mistaken...

It is a beautiful 500E. Wow! I passed him on PCH close to Belmont. What is the asking price?

Didn't watch both videos but noticed

1) Headliner is loose

2) Missing button on control for A/C heat

3) Steering wheel unthreading

4) Sunroof needs maintenance, at a minimum.

Just my take

PS Was it repainted?
Those kind of miles, and the leading edge of the fenders is clean?
