HUGE buyer beware on this one:

First off, there were no '95 wagons imported into the US though MB USA.

Second, the rear has had a crunch as the rear bumper impact strip has been replaced with a junk yard donor piece from a pre-facelift W124 and the badges are placed in all the wrong places indicating sloppy bodyshop work.

Third, if the owner really did put in such huge expense for the engine transplant then why they did butch the front passenger wing. It's almost like they couldn't afford the proper diesel front wring. More likely, I betcha they couldn't find one in a junk yard.

Fourth, those chrome wheel arch strips are hideous and is a great way to invite paint problems & rust.

Finally, look at the license plate tags. Car is in California and has red tags, which means registration is not current.

I bet the real reason it's being auctioned off is because he can't get it registered since it fails the required smog check and is a instant visual fail upon inspection.

As much as I'd love to have a diesel wagon, I wouldn't touch this one with a 10ft pole.

10ft pole is too risky

If the diesel engine is same model year or newer as the body its legal in CA. Just needs to be take to the ref station, they slap on a new sticker and no more smog check. 3300rpm at 80mph is way too high for a diesel. My gasoline Volvo 960 runs 3000 at 83mph. I hate how short the gearing is on MB diesels.


87 300D turbo + 5spd
93 190e 2.3 + Megasquirt 1
92 190e 2.6 5spd + Megasquirt 2
97 E300 DIESEL

15K is way too much for this cobbled up project that wasn't finished properly as evidenced by the homebrew air intake on the fender. I paid 3K less for a car that was 100% original and had less than 50K and had all the expensive stuff done like the AC evap core replacement.

For that crazy type of money, you can start to get into a decent 500E/E500.

Knock $10K off the stupid asking price, and we're back to reality.
