FS - 1986 300E in NJ - new low price!

Sorry, but starting a new post. Given the circumstances, I thought that might be the best bet to get it noticed.

I'm finding it is time to just let it go. I hate selling it so cheap, but I'd rather have the money right now. It is now in an ebay auction with a starting bid of $2850 and the Craigs price is $3750. I'd so much rather someone who knows what they are looking at and appreciates the car buys it, so come get it! As long as the cash in hand exceeds the current bid, I'd probably take it.
Mercedes Benz 300 Series 300E | eBay

Really great driving car with only 99k miles. Interior is incredibly immaculate. Looks close to new. I was amazed when I found it and amazed again as I was cleaning it for sale.

In the time that I've had it, I have replaced a number of things, such as front suspension bits, brakes, many electrical bits (coolant temp, crank position, OVP, FPR, O2, battery), tires, water pump, thermostat, timing and valve cover gaskets, full tuneup, filters, etc, etc. This needs nothing and I would not hesitate to drive it anywhere. AC (R134) and heat work great. All seat controls and windows work (rear windows are a little slow these days but they do go all the way up and down). Has a CD stereo that the previous owner installed.

The only things that don't currently work are the cruise control, dash clock, and outside temp display.

There is NO rust or rot that I have found.

I know this is very different than the Craigslist crowd, so please let me know if I'm forgetting anything. Price drop: asking $3500!!
