FS: 1998 C43 - White with 129K miles

I am thinking it's about time for a change for me. I bought a '98 with 101K on it about 3 years ago after I lost the oil pump in my E300 Diesel. Loved the ride and fuel mileage but the diesel premium these days doesn't make it worth it. Love the grunt of the C43 but I travel a ton now so it mostly sits. It has 126K on it. If I sold it, I would replace the "boomerang" from the front and have the nose painted. I lost it when I hit a small animal at 4:30AM on the way to the airport. Other than that, it's pretty damn nice. Headliner around sunroof is loose and the return (closing) side of the switch recently failed but otherwise 100%. I have an aftermarket stereo in it but I have the original MB radio and the MB Cellphone. Removed both and stored them when I bought it. No rips, tears or cracks, tires have 13K on them. Since they dont show up a lot, I am open to offers and not sure about the ballpark. White with the Black seats / blue inserts and black body trim.

Send me a PM for contact info.

Update - Still looking to sell the C43. Again, Straight body, no rust. recent new front pads with a light cut on the rotors. no maintenance issues but a couple nagging things that I have yet to address because I am on the road Mon-Thurs almost every week. Current mileage is around 131K

Need to figure out why the auto-manual selector wont move over. Discussed on this forum, possibly mechanical in the selector, worst-case $400 for a complete mechanism from MB.

Lock knob off the passenger front door. not sure what happened, was a weekend when my wife was using the car. door panel needs to come off, I have the knob. again, just no time and since the locks all work, not a priority

Needs the front "bow" in the grill. I am selling as-is now so if it means a lot to you, get one and get it painted. not that big a deal for me.

sunroof switch opens but doesn't close. possibly just a contacts cleanup but since I don't use the sunroof, i haven't messed with it.

Otherwise, clean, straight body, no rust, interior in is excellent condition and no rips/tears in the leather. good rubber, brakes, etc. shouldn't need anything to pass inspection.

Looking for $7K. Video here of the 0-120MPH acceleration run. Nice and smooth, no codes. 98 C43 Accel Run - YouTube
