FS 1988 190E 2.3L $500
Hello guys (and gals)! I have a 1988 190E 4 cyl, 2.3L that is in really good cosmetic condition, but last time I was driving it i saw white smoke from the rear tail pipe, so I stopped driving before it overheated, and had it towed home. Bought the head gasket kit (still have it) and never got around to fixing it.
That was 2.5 years ago. In that time, I was married, got two kids (Irish twins, no offense to anyone, just an epression for back to back kids) and have another one on the way, so even though my wife has been nagging me to get it out of the driveway this whole time, reality is finally kicking in, and I would be kidding myself if I thought I am going to repair it anytime soon.
As I mentioned above, the car is in good cosmetic condition, no rust (not even underbody, fenders, trunk space), interior has no rips, cracks, windows & sunroof work, the car had 114k miles when i stopped driving it.
Rather than giving it to a charity and not knowing what is going to happen to it, or worse selling it to a junk yard knowing damn well what is going to happen to it, I came on here to try and find some one who will replace the head gasket and enjoy the car. The kit comes with the car (paid around $150).
If you have any questions, please call or text (347) 268 - 1543. The car is in central NJ.
