Hey all, here's a euro spec model... Thoughts on price for these?

1985 Mercedes Benz 190E $2000 OBO

I've heard that one should stay away from 'first gen' and early versions of any particular model. Too bad the actual mileage can't be verified.

Cheers

If it has practically no rust, you better grab that!!

It's a 2.3, so not really difficult to work on. Headgaskets are things to keep an eye out for, also rust around jacking points, wheel wells, etc.

The interior has some issues, like the canted ash tray, but that's not too hard to fix/replace. The four speed gearbox is a nice touch, and so is the interior seat trim. Easy to care for.

If the car has no serious rust issues, drives fine, all the electricals work, then I don't see why this wouldn't be a nice buy. I'd probably see if you can get it for $1500 or so first.

Verifying the mileage is another thing to do, make sure the odo does work, so a test drive would be smart.

Manual windows!! How I miss those.

Just give it a look.

Am I wrong or does this seem like a pretty reasonable price for a 190 Sportline? I should go look at it as it's only 15 minutes from me.
