Great chance that his definition of NM is not at all realistic. Unless he was one of those incredible anal owners that fretted endlessly over this car and if so, would probably carry some ridiculous price tag. The car is market worth less than $1,000 because of the mileage. What about the transmission, the evaporator and what about the HG...there's no way in hell they are original at that mileage...should have done a head job around the 200,000 mark...which could have taken care of the HG issue. Lots more needs to be known about this car. The mileage makes it almost giveaway status.

I give him kudos for the mileage unless he's just flipping the car, but kudos don't transfer to $$$...seems to me if you're gonna write an ad...you could spell grate[sic] correctly. I'd be wary of this one.

You would think he could clean the junk out of it before taking the pictures too. But on the bright side it might have a new starter....the old one is in the floor on the rear passengers side.

If I had to guess, I'd say the guy is a loon or a recent owner wanting to flip it. Either way, the mileage drags it down to a $500 car or parts car. I challenge his NM rating.

Another Texan on crack. I may have posted this before, but he keeps listing it.

1995 Mercedes E420

1995 Mercedes -Benz E 420 rare. a good project car the main thing is transmission will not gear into gear but runs great I was told it maybe the kick down switch. the inspection sticker is out. Runs strong has only 53,000 original miles. Paint is fair condition has some fading car has some rust was setting in Florida back yard for about 2 years along with a cracked windshield tire are good missing spare tire. will need to be towed. Have clear Texas title in my name asking $2000 or trade .
But he does not mention the previous rear end damage, as seen by a pre-facelift rear bumper on the car, and front end damage.

Plenty of those guys around this state, that's for sure! Haven't been that actively looking at W124s, but pretty much all W126 sellers are definitely smoking some nasty stuff.

Good project car for some energetic 20 something....watch out for body work at any price, unless you're a masochist.

...cash would get it for less money and yes i saw the bumper and body damage but i think the motor alone and the tranny (if good) are worth the asking price. its another car i dont need but i dont see many 400e's for walking around money.

Yeah, no kidding. Figure it to be a money pit with a bad transmission and about everything else, but doable. Now if I could just get that corp I did the last job for to pay me the $12,800 they owe me...lol
