1989 190e 2.6 Manual

If your looking for something a bit different from the usual Cosworth Benzs this maybe your ride. The manual 2.6 is even rarer than 2.3-16 with a take rate of around 5% in the US. The inline 6 is a great torquey motor that doesn't need to be revved as much as the 2.3-16 to make power.

I'm the second owner and have all the paper work from new, including the original msrp sticker. New York state car that was not driven in the winter and always garaged. Sometimes no rust does apply to northern cars! The car has been in Texas since I purchased it.

Beside the manual transmission, this Benz is equipped with Palomino Leather not MB Tex which is what the majority of 190e models have. It also has the very rare rear headrests ($295 option). Full equipped it has a anti-theft alarm system, electronic sunroof, abs, becker cassette player, cruise control, electronically adjustable front seats, power windows and locks. All electronics are fully functional.

Great highway cruiser, I drove it from Upstate New York to Dallas without missing a beat. The car is daily driven and not a garage queen. Regularly get about 23 mpg. There are small scratches, but nothing that would detract from the overall condition of the car. The paint is great condition with no fading. The driver's side turn signal has a light scrap from a tire that came flying at me from a truck in Memphis that I could not avoid. The lens is not cracked just has a dark smear from were the tire made contact. The passenger side corner of the front bumper has a light scrap from the previous owner. The rear passenger door is delaminating from the window, nothing serious just slightly out. The driver's seat bolster will need some attention. The front arm rest is worn from use and the front passenger seat has a tiny rip on the bottom seat cushion. I have conditioned and maintained the seats during my ownership and nothing has gotten worse since purchasing.

The AC is non-op and will need a new condenser and dryer. The blower switch will need to be replaced. The heater does work as do the both defrosts. Just had a engine bracket replaced, drive belt and oil change. She is ready for you to enjoy.

Asking $6,500 OBO

Good looking car. Price seems a little high for a non working a/c but the manual transmission is pretty nice paired with the M103. I love the manual in my M103 powered 300TE.
