FS: 1994 E500 82K miles (Boston area) - $16,500

I live in the Boston area and am selling my 1994 E500 (W124) - I bought the car last summer as a 3rd car and don't drive it enough to justify keeping it.

The car was in an accident in the late 90's (my uncle) - hit in the left rear - no damage to the frame or engine - all repair work done by Mercedes Benz dealership in Indianapolis.

Lots of pics here: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/sq5t44h5cd096co/gAzoUeyJEE

Here is some info on the car's history:
*I am the 3rd owner - I bought it last June from my uncle - who has been the primary owner. This car has always been garaged under his or my care - and for my uncle, this car was always a 4th or 5th car. For me, it has been a 3rd car.

*Here is my best estimate of ownership:
-Owner #1 - bought car in Ohio or Texas - unclear from the carfax in Fall of 1993
-Owner #2 (my uncle) - bought the car in Fall of 1994 w/ 5,822 miles. The car lived the majority of its life in Indianapolis, IN.
-Owner #3 (me) - bought the car in June 2011 w/ 78,678 miles. I live outside of Boston.

*The car has always been maintained at MB dealerships under my, and my uncle's care - with the exception of my most recent oil/filter change - which I did at a local mechanic who I know and trust. (MB of Indianapolis, Mercedes Benz of Boston - Herb Chambers)

*I have driven the car for the last two summers putting approx 3,300 miles on it. The car didn't leave the garage in the winters, and was stored covered.

*Cool facts on this car:
-I have the original window sticker for this car - $82,975
-I have both sets of original keys w/ original key fobs from dealership (Dana Motor Company, Cincinnati) - I believe now called MB of Cincinnati

The car is completely stock and original:
*1994 E500
*Engine #: 008194
*Ship Number: 3153
*Black Pearl Metallic (199) w/ Grey Leather (278)
*Just over 82,000

Recent upkeep of note:
*New exhaust system installed Spring 2011 before I took ownership from my uncle. He had the work done by the MB dealership in Indianapolis - but, when I took to my dealer in Boston, they indicated it was an aftermarket. So, I believe the dealer no longer had the part, or wanted to get the part - and went aftermarket. System is fine - there is a slight rattle that requires a slight 'bend' to make it stop.

*4 brand new tires - Michelin Pilot Sport A/S Plus.

A couple of things that need attention:
*A/C stopped working this summer - I have not had it checked by my mechanic, it could be in need of a recharge or could be a bigger issue w/ a seal.
*Outside temp wire is loose - so reading in car comes and goes.
*Rear brakes - rear brakes have 25% remaining.
*Rattle from new exhaust needs slight 'bend' to eliminate noise.
*The wiring harness has NOT been replaced - this is a common repair for these cars - there are no issues w/ the electric, but if I were to hold onto the car, I would address in the next few years.

Feel free to email me if you have interest or any questions:

That is a lot for a e500 that has been rear ended. Unless you have pictures of the before and after, or other documents of the repair, you will have to lower the price a lot. I saw one last year, with no accidents, with less miles, in better condition, go for $15,000. I don't think you will get above $10,000.

Plus the unknown condition of the AC and the crumbling wiring harness.

I could see you getting $15,000 if this car was accident free without those big issues.

It is a very nice car though.
