For sale 1998 E55 AMG in Cancun, Mexico

I am selling my 1998 E55 AMG for US$8,500. I saved this car from a negligent owner and attempted to restore it but had to stop the project due to the incompetence of garages in Mexico.

After these pictures were taken, the car was scanned electronically and some electrical issues were resolved.

The car has 192,000 kms and requires minimal electrical, new shock absorbers and original paint touch-ups.

I have changed the damaged original leather seat covers to synthetic two tone suede to cope with the tropical heat.

My price is negotiable and whoever buys it has to deal with shipping etc... .

If interested, then please contact me directly at nzrhmx@gmail.com

Why is everyone wishing me luck instead of making an offer... my price is negotiable and I mention that in the post.

You need to mention what specific electrical issues it had and how they were fixed. Also, you mention you didn't finish restoring it. What else does it need?

Does it have any past service history?

If I was a potential buyer, the first thing I would be asking myself is "This car is leaking/dripping/has a oil problem. I would A. move car from that spot or B. remove picture.
Happy Motoring

You are selling a car which, if imported to the US, would in addition to an arm, a leg and a kidney require a boatload of time, money and effort to get it registered here.

Hence, the chances of finding a buyer north of the border are pretty much non-existent. Not too many members from Mexico in here. Think I've only seen maybe 2 or 3. But maybe there's a lurker somewhere who might be interested...

So, good luck!

Didn't think there was an E55 in 98. In the US, they started off with a 99. That's going to be a hard sell on Benz World.

My old w210 E55 AMG is on sale at a dealership for a couple of grand cheaper. You might be able to see at a lower price.
