I might sell it for parts too but I really need the money.
As I'm in desperate need of money, I'm letting go of my vintage 1978 Mercedes Benz 280E. I'm willing to trade, but I really do need cash and I'm considering ALL offers.
ONLY 87k MILES. Original rims and wheels. Power windows, steering and sunroof. All original parts. Original leather seats. Engine runs fine. Battery is old though but a refurbished one is about $30. Very minor rust around wheels and a bit on the edge of the sun roof (original 1978 paintjob) and some springs have ripped through the driver's seat but the car is perfect all around.
MUST PICK UP (southside Chicago, Illinois) - I lost my license and I need to sell the car to get my license and pay some tickets. More pictures can be taken if needed. This is a very good car and I'm sorry to let it go but I can't make money without my license and I can't get my license without the money.
Interested parties may email or call Marino at 1630631360 - asking for a trade, $1,500 OBO. taking all offers seriously. Everything in this vehicle is original and from 1978. This was my first car that I got when I was 17 and I hate to see it go.
I'm really hoping someone that can take care of this mercedes and bring it to it's full glory can take it off my hands. I have all the manuals and paperwork from the vehicle in the glovebox as well.
-right passenger window does not go down
-left backseat window does not go down
-missing gas pedal, but still driveable
-very slight rust and small scratches from sitting in a garage for a while
-radio works, though has some issues with the preset channels
If anyone can give their personal opinion on what they think the car is worth, I would really appreciate that. I'm willing to see it for parts but I would need someone to by at least $600 in parts right off the bat so I'm not left with half a car and not enough money to pay my tickets and license fees.
