Arrow FS 1987 MERCEDES COSWORTH 190E 2.3-16V

For sale 1987 Mercedes 190E 2.3-16v Cosworth. US spec.
Rare car. If you are looking at this ad you probably know what this car is, so I won't waste time on boring trivia.
Price - $8000
The car is located in Las Vegas.

Here's the brief description:

Very good overall condition and amazing for a 26 year old car.
Mileage - 149000, less than 5k mi on rebuilt top end.
5sp Getrag dogleg transmission.
The car is accident free, hasn't been tracked, body is rust free, interior is smoke/pet free.
The interior is in good to excellent condition (see photos at the link below).
Everything works on the car except for cruise control.
Differential has a bit of a slack in it - not bad enough to make me do anything about it.
Body has couple of dents and scratches (see photos at the end of the linked album).


Within last 5k mi the cylinder head was entirely redone with new valve guides and seals, valves reseated, tensioner and chain replaced etc.
Self-leveling suspension is fully functional with new cells and replaced leveling valve, pump o-rings and fluid.
The cylinder walls were honed, all gaskets and seals that were accessible during disassembly were replaced.
Suspension and brakes were gone through with new front Bilstein sports, strut supports, rear thrust arms, brake disks and pads etc.

Thanks man!
I wouldn't be selling it if not for another project - '86 BMW M6 Euro - that's taking all my time (and money) right now...

Someday I'll come up with something very clever instead of this

I appreciate the offer, but I have 3 cars now - it's one too many. I would've kept this otherwise...

Sweet

The 16 valve cars are great fun to drive - fun at autocross and (slow but) fun on the track. My garage is full already, but a nice clean 16V like yours is very tempting. Hope it finds a good home.
