It appears that the rust was internal at least as to the spare tire well. Certainly nothing to worry about. And, the brake fittings are also insignificant.

I would tend to believe the seller that he just didn't like the car, not that he discovered a bad rust condition.

Poor thing. I just don't understand how someone can take what was once a hyper-expensive car (about $148k in 2016 dollars) and run it into that kind of condition. But at least it's not in a junkyard getting picked over. Maybe she'll get resurrected.

New listing on ebay for a 92 500E. Looks to be in pretty good shape for 129,000 mi. I messaged the seller trying to get the reserve price but he wouldn't budge.

Is it my imagination or is that blue-green coolant in the overflow tank??

Good catch Dave. It sure looks like the incorrect coolant in the overflow tank, which makes his statement "it was previously owned by a local German mechanic" suspect. IMO, this is a major problem, which would be expensive to correct - hoses, monovalve, fitings, etc., will need to be addressed. What a major mistake! I have seen E series cars that have run with the incorrect coolant, which caused all sorts of problems. Too bad - not sure how an owner of such a vehicle could make such a mistake and it calls into question the quality and frequency of the maintenance on this vehicle. I sent the seller a question asking how long he has run the vehicle with the incorrect coolant and I will report back when/if I receive an answer.

You do realize new mercedes coolant which is compatible with old yellow is now bluish color which looks like this coolant is. It is more bluish then greenish so that might be new mercedes coolant

True about the newer MB coolant color. But in general, when a seller starts talking about a fastidious German mechanic owner, you can run for your shotgun, because you're about to be taken.
