1984 Mercedes 280E

Some might know me some just know that I am somewhere out there fixing old Merks trying to resurect a few and stay afloat with the MErcedes mania. I did a 500E recently and sold it also Im doing a 300ce Koenig at the moment. Well I Found this Super Dry and rust free w123 in texas what Caught my eye is the 2.8 24V motor atached to a 4Spd Manual. Euro bumpers and lights. Upon Closer inspection I figured its Euro Spec and Was imported to Texas New. I bought the car from the first owner through an auction. The car was a bit worn but The unique Merk kept me steaming ahead towards a finished restoration. I had to replace the old velour interior and so I Found a used on for 700$ Trick was I had to go and Remove it. Im happy with how that came out. The interior is from a 85 300D. Thats dash, wheel, seats , carpets, evrything black there is from the 300d. Well there is a whole lot I did and I Dont think anyone will car to read a few pages. but for those so far inspired to do So you can read what I posted on Craigslist. The ad is as follows------- This Car was not offered in the USA in the 80's. Car Came from a rust free state TEXAS. One person owned it, was imported to States in 85 Brand New. 200hp Rated 24V Inline 6 Motor. 4 speed Manual transmission No rust all undercarriage clean and original. rebuilt Transmission new clutch. New shocks all around, New tires and A set of 70's Centra Rims 15", rebuilt Fuel Distributor and Injectors. New Fuel pump, New fuel Strainer and Filters. New wires rotor cap and plugs, Whole interior replaced Was velour and ripped. A\C has been cleaned oiled and filled, blows very Cold. Recent Brakes, Good OEM Exhaust with New Tips. Car just went through a 5000$ restoration. Everything was painted but the roof. Car had no rust but Had dings around from people bumping doors into it. I have pictures before work was started and during. New center console molding, New Floor mats OEM, Replaced Steering wheel, New Steering Gear, New Windshield, New Grill, New Oxygen sensor, New hood pad, New windshield washer motor, New sunroof gasket, Spare belts and brake pads in trunk. Car is show car worthy. Its available if the ad is still going. Some people ask about the wheels and that they stick out. AMG tuned Cars from the age had the wheels like this. The wheels do not rub. I also Have a set of original wheels. Call 860 331776one talk to me Zibi Clean title in hand.

Here are a few pics of the job being performed and finished project.
