1991 Mercedes 300E - Only 76,662 Miles

Hi there. Hope all is well.

My name is Steve Lang and I have been writing about used cars, auto auctions, and my own personal travels since 2006.

Steven Lang | The Truth About Cars

I am also developing a long-term reliability study that recently got some interest from Yahoo.


Trade-In Quality Index

This Monday at 1:30 PM, there will be a 1991 Mercedes 300E that will be auctioned off at a Carmax wholesale auction here in Atlanta.

I have already gone through the Carfax history for this vehicle (VIN: WDBEA30D4MB317053) and although these vehicles have a history of broken odometers, it appears that this vehicle may have the right miles. I will be happy to send pictures and the Carfax history of this vehicle upon request.

If you are interested, feel free to reach me at steven.lang@alumni.duke.edu . My fee for purchasing a vehicle for enthusiasts is $300 (usually I charge $500 for other private parties) and I would expect a vehicle like this to sell right around the $3500 to $4000 range. The auction charges approximately $175 for their auction fee.

Hopefully I can keep this with an enthusiast instead of someone's grandkid or a buy-here pay-here customer. I will be happy to also download pictures of the vehicle when I am at the sale as well so you can see exactly what you would be possible purchasing. If you are interested, feel free to contact me.

All the best!

Very nice car. Someone should fall in love with that. Surprised that you have not had any takers yet. Good eye. Good luck. I had a 1990 that I put 75,000 miles on the clock in one year. What a tank. Hated the job though!

That does look like a nice one. I'm surprised there isn't any interest.
