Price : $Make Reasonable Offer$ - Must sell soon.

1986 300E
Mileage : Kind of Unknown, 155,000 on the clock but, odometer cable broken. Some where between 155,000 and 200,000 miles is a good guess.The car is stock except for the Eibach springs.

Wife drives daily with no problems. A few little issues such as passenger power seat is broken, heat doesn't blow on floor, couple trim pieces are loose. We Love this car but we need to unload so we can get a new toy.

Email me with any questions.We are located in Central Ohio. [email protected]

The car looks very clean. I don't think there are many people here from the central Ohio area that I've noticed but good luck selling nonetheless!

Looks clean, and I bet it's a great car, but with mileage somewhere in the span of 50k people won't be jumping to buy it.

Good luck, but I don't see it pulling alot of money.

I think both you guys are correct about my 300E. Central Ohio is not a hot bed of a market for used 300's. I know the unknown mileage is also an issue,but I didn't care about the odometer because I know the car and planned to keep forever...to late to go back and fix that matter now . The good news is that the car is costing me nothing but gas and upkeep.My daughter is about to turn 16 and she drove the Benz this weekend and now she thinks she likes it better than my Acura I was thinking about giving her. I was proud to here that being a Benz guy.[;)] I will just test the market and what happens, Happen.

Thanks for the input,

I would think this would be an excellent car for your daughter. The first car should always be a safe one for your kids. All the better that she likes it. Girls of that age are typically caught up with the peer pressure of owning a Honda or Toyota, especially since you live in "Honda" country.

Of course, you know your daughter best. This is definitely a family decision.

Spelling errors in last post of mine - geez, here or hear..I must be tired.
I agree that it would make an excellent car for her. All her pals want her to take the Acura since we are in Honda country with all the Honda plants not far away. She has developed a love for cars and loves going to the races at Mid-Ohio and Indy F1, so maybe she imagines being in the West Mcclaren car at Indy [:)]All my kids love to cheer for Kimi. If it doesn't sell, its hers. Who needs front wheel drive, she will be one of the few doing dounuts in the correct direction.

An 86 300e is not that safe. When was the last time you replaced your air bags? There should be a sticker on your door sill as to when it expires. Also your car lacks the safety cage that is found in latter 300e's. Most important you should update your headlights, after so many years they won't work as well as your Honda. Lets face almost any mercedes will hold up better in an accident then your Ack
If you need to find out milage try Carfax.com, it should help.
