Arrow 1984 230CE Euro 4 Speed manual. Raleigh, NC area

$9500 OBO...REDUCED to $7500 OBO..!! If you have an offer you can PM me.

Hi gotta sell her as wife thinks its too old and does not like it. She doesn't appreciate classic cars. So I bought a Corvette.

Many of you know this car as I have build threads on the car's restoration. These threads will give you all the info on my car but I will answer any questions to the best of my ability. However, the threads listed below will tell the story much better than any description I can write. It is a very well sorted out car. I still love the car and hope that it goes to a member here who will appreciate her. Will try to sell it here and if it doesn't get sold, I'll ebay it. If any of you know someone who may be looking for a nice car, please refer them to this ad.

Price is negotiable of course but I won't discuss the price until you have had a chance to see it personally.

Here are the threads that give the info on my car:
Build thread, lots of interior pics and exterior pics

Forgot to mention:

1. Engine was rebuilt by a shop that specializes in Mercedes a few thousand miles ago and it purrs like a kitten and is powerful.

2. The manual tranny was also replaced a few thousand miles ago.

3. The AC was also replaced a few thousand miles afo and works.

All receipts are there and I have a thick folder of all maintenance receipts that dates back to the 1980s, and pretty much every 3000 miles..! It totals ~$30,000.

Thanks for trying to help out. Unfortunately, I don't have a say in the matter anymore as I bought a Corvette so this gem has to go. Price is negotiable.

REDUCED to $8900 OBO..!!

This is a nice car. I'd like to sell it to a member here otherwise I'd hate ebaying it. Come take a look, drive, Take it to the highway and get a feel for how tight the car is including the steering. Fall in love. Additionally, you can PM me too. Look through the restoration links in the OP and see how lovingly it was restored.

Regards

If you have an offer, you can PM me. Will be putting it up on Craigslist and Ebay soon. Would rather that it goes to one of our own here. Thanks
