For sale is a 1989 Mercedes Benz 190E 2.6 Liter V6. Car runs well, transmission used to slip, have had it in my driveway for almost a year looking to work on it, but
I am getting married tomorrow and since I never got around to fixing it, the bride to be says it has to go. I have seen a few threads from Hattenator in this site who really knows about the transmissions, and i think it can be fixed very cheap, if you change the K1 spring kit.
I just don't want to sell it to a junk yard because they will crush it,
and I think the car has a few more years left in it. It has ~ 146k miles. I tried starting it by jumping it with my other car but I don't want to drain the battery, so I wasn't able to get it started. From sitting for months it has a flat tire, the spare is in the trunk.
The body is good, no dents, no rust. The engine is straight six cylinder. The car is worth more, for those who know these cars.
If interested call (347) 268-1543. The car has to go but I don't want to have it crushed.
PS It has to be picked up today, otherwise I will call the junk car removal.

I didn't get any phone calls except for the junk car guy, so I left it in the driveway, which by the way caused the last premarriage discussion, but I kept it anyway. I will work on it now that (I think) I will have more time. I will drop the transmission pan cover, switch the spring kits, refill the fluid and give it a go.
Kevwa451 & 04 Diesel thanks for the comments.
Ed,
P.S. 04 Diesel, I don't know where you live, but since I am a man of my word, if you decide you want to take a ride to Central/South Jersey, you can have it for $300.

I'm actually looking for a good shell for my diesel. Where might you be in NJ? I'm not that far away.
