FS: 1988 190e 2.3 - Alexandria, VA - $1500 OBO NEED IT GONE
$1,500 or best offer. Need the car gone by the weekend.
Located in Alexandria, Virginia.
1988 Mercedes 190e 2.3 for sale. Car has a long list of new parts including:
All new rotors and brake pads
All new Bosal exhaust (catalytic converter, resonator and muffler)
New valve cover gasket
New front struts and strut mounts
New rear shocks
New oxygen sensor
New EHA valve
New fuel filter
New Air filter
New headlights and headlight sockets
New steering damper
New sway bar bushings
All new vacuum lines @ fuel injection system
New radiator and radiator hoses
New idler arm bushings
Recent oil change (less than 500 miles)
New cooling fan
All of this amounts to about $2400 in repairs/parts. I did about 95% of the work myself (exhaust was done by a shop since it fell off and had to be replaced that day).
The car runs great and drives well. I have spent an obscene amount of time and money getting the car to where it is now. With a bit more work it could be perfect. I need to sell it so I can get something bigger. Sits on 16" Mercedes rims (8 Hole alloys), body is straight with a few dings one would expect from a 26 year old car. Interior is good, though driver seat is shot. Passenger seat is in great shape. Sunroof works, AC does not. Heat works fine. Has some rust at the jack points. Has a valid Virginia inspection through 1/15 and is emissions exempt. White with blue MB Tex interior. Can be Antique plated.
Clean title in hand.
After all of this sorting out, I have finally gotten the fuel mileage sorted and the last tank I got about 21 MPG's with mixed highway and city driving. Car could probably use new engine mounts and tires at some point. I would love to get what I have into it back, but I am realistic about the sale price. Make me an offer and we can discuss it.
I am going to be finished with old Mercedes after this car is gone, so I will also give the buyer the extras, spares and odds and ends I have. Also the car has a nice Blaupunkt receiver (Toronto 420) and Polk Audio speakers.
Forgive the dirt as I just put the catalytic converter in over the weekend and I got it a bit dirty as I crawled from underneath it 400 times. The catfish sticker is actually a magnet and I have the badges for the trunk lid.
