1988 Mercedes 300E 5 Speed, PA $2000

This is my wife's car that we have had for 3 years. Car has a number of upgrades to include the 2008 C class staggered wheels, Bilstein shocks, water pump, belts, radiator, OVP, fuel dampener, 4 wheel brake job, fuel filter, air filter, valve cover gasket, headlight surrounds, alpine cd player, etc. Car was a European delivery and then shipped here and registered in the US. Comes with a number of extras like w124 bible, oil filter, misc tools and parts.
They only made about 300 of these 5 speeds. Transmission was rebuilt before we got the car and the car was also repainted by the previous owner. Car will have a new Mercedes battery before sale. The main caveat is that the car exhibits a hot start issue at times. Always starts up from cold but sometimes when parked and you try to restart the car while hot it will just crank but not fire. Wife bought a BMW and now wants me to sell the Mercedes. Price is firm at $2000. We have easily put that much into it after buying it for $3000. The rims and tires alone are worth $500. Mileage is around 165k.

ovp relay replacement might just help on the hot start issue. I had a similar thing going on. BTW, at $2000, it should sell quick...

I sent you a PM.
I regret selling my 300CE 5 speed, so I've been on the hunt for a 5 speed W124 since the day I've sold it.

Call me!
