Sounds like the right circumstances for a killer deal - seller HAS to move the car by 9/12 (moving). And the car won't move (engine work).

Nice deal if it checks out, at only 85K miles.

Mercedes E320 Convertible Project 1,400 OBO

Car must go by Sept. 12. Best offer takes her home. I can even arrange to tow it to buyers house or wherever within 50 miles of Jacksonville if need be.

I have a 1994 Mercedes E320 Cabriolet. 85,000 miles but needs new engine. Engine had a cracked head and was dismantled for repair and left as such (as in half the engine is in the trunk). Unfortunately I do not have time to piece back the engine or drop another engine in place. Body is pretty straight, interior needs to be cleaned and could use a little TLC and will need a new canvas soft top. Otherwise, It's pretty much a complete car ready for a new home. I really do not want to sell this car but unfortunately I just can't keep it. I'm getting ready to move to California and can't take her with me.

I'm asking $1,400 but am willing to negotiate on the price since I need this car gone ASAP. Serious buyers only. No reasonable offer will be turned down. I have plenty of pics to send if interested. Would be a great driver or.....part it out....as much as it pains me to say that. Thanks for looking and God bless.

If posting is still up, the car is still for sale. Feel free to give me a call about the car at 530-xxx-xxxx

Man, that's too good to be true. The right guy could really make a killing on that car.

Part of me was hoping (before clicking the link) he meant Jacksonville, FL. But alas. :(

You should probably price a wiring harness in there while you're at it. It is a 94 and the harness has been manhandled.

Just the same, I've got an extra OM602 I could throw in there.

Had mine done for 1600 installed. Top was cheap. labor was expensive, looked up the procedure and wanted nothing to do with it. I already get enough of that crap at work.

Labor was 12 hours at 100 an hour. Went to a top notch shop and got what I paid for. Reused headliner after a cleaning.

Jono, the poster is not the seller... you'll need to contact the guy directly:

Call Brad @ 530-632-5302​

I so feel your pain! It's taking all the will power I can muster to not chase this down. If it was closer, it would probably already be in the driveway.

The wheels alone are worth close to asking price.
Beware about different CL scams. Some want the advanced payment before they "will ship the car", while lately it was even reported in our news - potential "sellers" make an appointment in remote location only to rob the cash from responders.
