FS: W124 1993 300TE WAGON

Selling my 1993 300TE wagon. Runs well but has the following problems:

-CV boots on both front axels are blown
-Broken rear passenger window (see in pictures)
-Leaky hose running from thermostat to engine
-AC/Heat both work but not much air makes it through the vents into the car
-Slight rust on the sides of the car
-Antenna for radio does not come out
-Slight oil leak
-Transfer case leaks transmission fluid for the 4MATIC, so the 4MATIC has been turned off, but works if there is fluid.
-Engine tends to idle a little bit low

Everything not mentioned above works. 207,000 km. Timing belt was changed about 30,000 km ago. Interior is in good shape. Has JVC unit with bluetooth. New blower motor. Still has winter tires on it from previous winter. Asking $900 OBO. I am located in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. PM me, email me at tim.biziaev@hotmail.com, or text me at 780-7103376. Sorry about the photos being all sideways

I am looking for a wagon and would pay top $ for the right one; but from the list of maladies it shows that in general, you have not taken care of this vehicle, long term.

That seems rather harsh. The W124 4Matic is very primitive and problematic so its no surprise it is having issues. For the issues the car is priced right.

1977 MB 240D 4 speed 142K - Long term project car.
1991 MB 300TE 5 speed 271K - Back on the road!
2014 Honda CR-V 33K - Wife's DD
2015 Ford F150 5K - My DD

1979 MB 280E 90K - Sold
1983 MB 240D 238K - Scrapped
1984 MB 300D 347K? - Sold

I suggest you keep looking then. $900 is no where near top dollar for these. I agree with gatorblue92, that this is is an appropriate price. Took me 3 months of daily checking all of US craigslist and the forums to find my diesel one. Good luck finding what you're looking for.

Also, good luck to the seller. The 4matics are not that common, and with a weekend of good work I bet this thing could almost be back to it's former glory.

"That seems rather harsh...."
Yes, sorry about that.
I was in a bad mood.... found yet another wagon on another site that was just a shame.....
I just get perturbed when I see cars that are not kept up; one thing leads to another... and then the car is junk.....
My apologies to the OP.
