1984 Original 5 Speed 190E 2.3 8V PERFECT DAILY!

Available is my 84 190E with the very rare manual transmission option.

After replacing MANY parts, I've got her in AWESOME running condition.

BUT, my fiance has talked me into parting with her and getting something newer to compliment my 500E. So this must go.

I've put LOTS of time and parts into it in recent weeks.

I've replaced:
Ignition Wires
Spark Plugs
Breather hoses, crankcase hoses
Thermo-Vacuum switch
Fuel Pressure regulator
Fuel Pump
Fuel Filter
Hood Strap (lol)
Steering Center Link
Replaced muffler and piping from the catalytic converter back.
and more, I'm sure I'm forgetting things.

There are lots of receipts shows LOTS of other parts replaced by the previous owner:

Cap and rotor
Clutch master and slave cylinder
Remanufactured Fuel Distributor
New(er) shocks
New(er) BF Goodrich tires
New(er) brakes
Cooling system flush
and more.

Clean title. For you Cali people, SMOG was done and the registration is current. She seriously runs like a CHAMP and needs nothing mechanically. Has typical "little" things as expected for a 30 year old Mercedes. No smoking, no noises, no overheating. ETC.

Steering and suspension is nice and tight. Manual trans shifts buttery smooth with no funny business, no grinding, noise, popping out of gear, etc.

Cosmetically, she's in DECENT condition. There's a bit of a wrinkle on the fender and some chipping, but with some elbow grease and love, it would show very, very well. Obviously, she's no concours queen.

After the hours I've put in and the parts replaced, I feel like $2100 OBO is fair. Please call, text or email.

Looks nice. However, I don't think there is mileage listed. Also, is the AC working?

Thanks! She's not too bad. AC does work, but it takes a couple minutes before its cold. (it does get very cold) and heat works as well.

The car has approximately 125K on it, odo is stuck, but verifiable through receipts and carfax.

Ditto, GreenT!

Or maybe it's just the cheap-ass in me who doesn't want to pay anybody to ship a car here. And driving a 30 year-old car I don't know well 1400 miles is a bit too scary proposition...

And so it begins......and only gets worse over the years "my fiance has talked me into parting with her" Sorry, I'm a bit synical on marriage. My now former wife used to go on car hunts with me, even helped clean the crap out of some cars I purchased. After 25 years the "you spend all your time working on your cars" theme surfaced, something she promised she would never do. No repeat for me but I do still spend time working on my Benzes! It's nice and quiet in the house now too!

BUMP!

I just recently turned 24! To celebrate, I am moving out of my parents house. Flying the coop! Can't take everything with and the extra cash would be nice.

Sacrifice now at $1650 OR Best!
