FS 1995 E320 Wagon $1800

Price: $1800.

Miles: 165k

Location: Orlando FL 32821

Hey guys,

I’m selling my 1995 E320 wagon that I’ve been working on for the last several months. I’m losing interest in the car, and have my eye on something else so I’d rather unload it now and be done with it.

Backstory on the car is my mother bought it about three years ago and drove it up until I bought a 300E and traded her for it a little over a year ago. Since then I drove it a did an absolute TON in maintenance which will be listed below.
Obviously it was in an accident back in November while in my ownership. I bought a parts car to fix it and slowly over the course of six months I did exactly that. I’m going to be honest, it’s a pretty hasty repair job. I’m not a body shop or an expert welder, so do not expect it to be anywhere near perfect. I did what I had to do to get the car on the road again and it is functional, though not by any means visually pleasing. I’d say I did about a 5/10 job overall on it.

I broke the oil pan last week after spinning the car in the rain. I am in the process of having it replaced as we speak. The old pan is out, the new pan is waiting, and I have a gasket on it’s way. The lower radiator support was damaged as well as the radiator. I fixed the lower support to make it functional, and a used radiator was installed.

Car will include the stock wheels with some decent Uniroyal Tigerpaw tires. It will not include a head unit.

The Good:

Completely rebuilt front suspension. I used Mercedes lower control arms
($1150), Mercedes tie rods ($150), sachs struts ($220), stablius steering damper ($30), and Lemforder center link ($45). Strut tower mounts are Febi, which so far have held up but aren’t great.

Rear brake rotors and pads were replaced last year with genuine Mercedes parts ($500 total). Front pads were replaced six months ago with Pagid pads ($30).

Updated wiring harness, dated 2001.

Updated rebuilt throttle body ($400)

MAF sensor replaced with brand new Bosch unit ($250).

New Bosch O2 sensor ($80)

Accumulators replaced with brand new Corteco units in October ($180).

Front Passenger caliper replaced with reman unit from Centric ($55)

Front brake lines replaced with Lemforder lines ($55)

Front rotors replaced with Centric rotors ($60)

New OVP last year ($55)

New Bosch spark plugs this WEEK ($20)

New oil pan and oil pan gasket ($20 for gasket)

New Continental serpentine belt ($20)

Tinted windows ($250)

Transmission filter and flush ($200)

Flex discs look to have been replaced by PO.

Keyless Entry ($150)

Car will come with a fresh alignment.

Everything works on the car. I have had no head gasket issues at all, no over
heating, etc. AC and heat work perfectly. No evaporator issues, and from what I can tell from when I had the dash off is that it had been replaced. It drives great, you would never know it’s been in an accident from driving it.

Interior is an 8/10.

The Bad:

Obviously it’s been in an accident. I’m not going to hide that. My repairs are amateur at best.

The hood needs a respray, probably the fenders too if you really want. I wasn’t ever planning on it though.

Hood and fenders don’t really line up perfectly. The fender gap is tight toward the windshield and I can fit my pinkie in toward the front bumper.

There is a pretty large hole in the exhaust just prior to the rear muffler. A muffler shop can probably fix this cheaply.

Corner lights don’t match.

Has a vibration at around 65mph. No clue what it is. It’s been like this since day 1. Flex discs look to have been replaced. I think it’s the drivers’ side caliper sticking though.

Sometimes starts rough. It needs the fuel pressure regulator replaced.

The CEL will come on, but it is ONLY the code for a plugged EGR tube. I never had the time to clean it out unfortunately.

I priced the car mostly due to the vast amount of new parts I have on it. Buy it and drive it until it dies, or use it as a parts car. It’s a good running vehicle despite it’s black eye.

Feel free to ask me any questions.

Thanks,

Colin

Working on some better photos of the interior. Here’s a few for now.
