FS 1979 W123 280E
1979 Mercedes-Benz 280E. $6,800 OBRO.
Only 45,000 miles. Very Good condition. Interior is 8 out of 10 and exterior is 7 out of 10. Recent work includes new front tires, front calipers and pads, upper and lower control arms, drag link, rears shocks, transmission linkages and modulator valve, front and rear window switches. Original steel wheels and hubcabs are shown in the pictures, but have added new 15' alloy wheels and tires, which improves handling. Will sell with both sets. Have also added new speakers and a new bluetooth radio, but I have the original Becker radio as well.
The bad: The AC compressor needs to be replaced. There are small, quarter-sized rust spots in the lower edges of the front doors as well as some rust in the front, right wheel well, but these can be fixed.
I am the 3rd owner. The car was originally owned and maintained in Rhode Island from 1979-199, where it was serviced regularly (based on maintenance records) and accumulated only 39,000 miles. I bought the car in the Spring with 44,00 miles.
I like this car, but I am selling because I bought the car as a "Sunday Driver" for my father, who prefers another car.
I am not desperate to sell this beautiful car, so please don't make unreasonable offers.
