1986 300E 24V 5 Speed "1 out of 900 in USA"
The car has a 24V engine in it. Im working on it and Im not being cheap on it, Im probably going to endup painting the whole car. I already got eurlights for it and new seats. Seats are heated (I know I was like wutt??? in 86) But only replacement I found were velcro not leather. New shifter and boot. New muffler and cat replaced with dual steel pipes. Installed chrome 17" amg replicas on it. stereo was replaced with e320 1995 one along with side speakers, wireing, amplifiers and door panels. I just installed a dash from a 95 with zebrano on it. Sportline suspencion all around, No rust,Clutch was changed 5 years ago when the swap was done. body is at 180K engine at 160 something thousand. Odo says 160 something. when done Im looking at tago of 5K or more. I still need to fix the moonroof and grille along with painting. Car has 24v engine in it so it has an extra 40Hp or so. plus the cat is removed for more hp. Also there were 900 brought to USA and not with the 24 valve engine. Its a 1990 300ce engine. this car is being restored so please dont lowball me with anything close to 4K. Car is Gray almost black with Gray interior. Pics before paint job coming soon. Car has all original paint and it needs help, major fadeing on roof hood and trunk, dents on doors from people not recognizing this unique car and smashing their doors on it. in 1986 300 were imported to USA market and in 1988 600 were brought.
