New Trunk Battery for w107 and others - Philadelphia
Battery was brand new at start of June. Been sitting charged on my garage floor. I have no use for it. It was a warranty exchange for a dead battery in a car I sold. Since this battery didn't fit, I put a different used battery in that car before it sold.
Since this is was a free battery via warranty, I don't think I can exchange it for one I might be able to use in a different car. I'm not sure it's worth the trouble either. It's been too long since I got it to take it back I think too.
So make an offer, any offer. Not often do you get an opportunity to get a brand new battery for this cheap.
Price for one at MB is about $150.
I paid about $140 for this one in June 2010, but Pep Boys installed a different smaller battery that fit in the car. When it died just a few days shy if the three year warranty, I took in the cheap battery and they gave me the style I purchased three years earlier... That does not fit my car that used an engine bay battery. I still think I could use an engine bay battery for my 280slc, but the one in there seems to be holding on and it doesn't take much to start that 280.
So... Any offer?
My dream car is a classic sporty five speed (stick+overdrive) convertible that seats five. If, you want 70's-80's Mercedes tuner wheels, let me know.
