FS: 1988 Mercedes Benz 300E

We bought this car for one of my sons, and after a month of driving it, the transmission gave out. We had the transmission rebuilt since then and it was doing fine. Then, it started acting as though it had a stuck valve. We had the head rebuilt, new valves, etc. That was 8 months ago...

The car runs great, but it idles like a Mac truck. I've spent months trying to fix this, replaced tons of sensors, timing configurations, OVP's, etc. I'm done, I give up, I raise the white flag.

My wife and I are going to Africa on a missions trip in April of 2014, so I'm deciding to put this up for sale and use the money to help us get to Africa.

I'm asking $2500 obo. Car is located in Abilene TX

Does the AC work? What about other electrical stuff? No current inspection? In the pics there seems to be a 2009 inspection sticker.

The AC does work, as does every other electrical component (but the radio). I have been working on the car for quite some time in my spare time so there has not been a need to do the inspection.
