1990 300E ~ $750


I bought it from the previous owner who recently lost his battle with cancer.

Car has been driven little since '08. It was stored in his garage and he had extensive work done over the years including brakes, suspension, KYB shocks/struts, exhaust work, A/C seals, etc... It was started regularly except for the past year as his health declined but it started right up with a fresh battery.

It ran a little rough, spit and sputtered but it has really cleared up since adding fresh gas and a gas treatment and running it through the system. It really does run, drive, shift, stop and steer very well down the road.

The rear window leaks at the top and it did get some smell/mildew inside that for the most part is cleaned now. I removed the front seats to clean good then my daughter decided she wanted a W123 like my old one so I abruptly stopped. The front seats are still out [I drive it with a case with a boat cushion] and there's a nearly complete newer '94 400E Palomino interior to replace the aging original tan interior [some pieces already installed] for an extra $100.

I sold the stereo system and the aftermarket wheels off of it but I just had a few good used tires mounted/balanced on the OEM wheels.

This would make a good driver with little work. It was to be my daughters 1st car but like her mother, she's getting what she wants!

$750 for the car + $100 for the '94 interior [still at previous owners ~ $ goes to his mother]

I'm going to pull some parts and scrap the rest soon if no interest in the whole car.

Serious inquiries only please.
