CLEAN 1988 300TE M103 2k OBO

1988 Mercedes 300te wagon
Around 233,000 miles
3.0 Straight 6 cylinder

For sale is a very mint 1988 Mercedes 300TE wagon. I am the third owner of this beauty! The previous owner claims that it was always dealer maintained in Dayton and I believe him because it obviously shows. Overall, this is a solid running car with a few things that could use some attention (this is an old car therefore it's not perfect). Please, no low ballers or tire kickers. Open to reasonable trades. Email for further questions or concerns. Call or text 513- four seven 8 - 72 five one. Cash is king! Thank-you

The Pros:
• Motor runs like a top
• Interior is very clean
• Exterior is very clean
• Dealer maintained for most of it's life
• Smooth ride

The Cons:
• Sometimes on startup the engine idles high for a small period of time
• Radio does not work
• Rear windows do not work (bad switch)
• Front tires would eventually need replacing
• ABS light is on

Some more details:

-SLS does work! Recently flushed with OEM hydraulic fluid. New feed hose to the pump
-Head gasket is not leaking. Looks like it may have been done before.
-Front cover has a small "seep" from lower left side
-Lower rockers appear good (selling this for a friend so I haven't picked over the jack points. No bad noises when putting the car on the lift).
-Front end does not "thud" when braking
-Wood trim in center console has one chip. Rest of it is in great shape
-It does appear it's had some work done in the front with the tensioner and water pump. This car was VERY well maintained. Under the hood it's pretty clean. A lot of new hoses and clamps.
-It idles pretty rock solid. When it's stone cold the idle "might" be considered a little rough but it sounds like a CIS car to me.

That's everything I really know about the car. I encourage anyone interested to come and look for themselves.
