I recently ran across this car and could not resist buying it. I should of... and only because I am in the middle of a restoration project on my 1983 300SD, and need the money in order to complete that project. So... more about the car:

This car was owned by a school teacher who had bought the car used with 17K miles on it in 1990 from a Bay Area Mercedes-Benz dealer. She drove the car daily between then and mostly between then and December of 2000 when the car had 66K miles on it. Although the car was garaged and not driven much between 2000 and now... the car was serviced. So it is not a garage rot car... but a genuine garaged car in awesome and unusual condition.

Since I bout the car to resell it, I am not asking too much. I am sure that if I had bought the car myself, I would be asking $8-9K as most seem to in this mileage and condition. I am listing it for quick sale at $5.9K... a great price... so low that some might think there is something wrong with the car or too good to be true. It is simply a quick-turn sale for me... and a great buy for the next owner.

Here is a link to the eBay listing and more detailed service record ect. The car has a clean CarFax and AutoCheck history.

Here is a link to photos on flickr.com. eBay User ID bhellmol 1988 300CE on eBay Motors - a set on Flickr Just in case I did not get the link right... just search for my user ID 'bhellmol' there, and you will find 47 high resolution pics.

Hi Scratcher,

You know, if she was't driving my 1992 500SEL, I am sure she would drive this one. I am 6'1" talll with a 34" inseam (the same leg length as someone who is typically 6'3 or greater.) My wife would fit perfect in the car at only 5'4"... but she has become addicted to the big body Benz ride, comfort and safety.

She, in fact, has let me know that she would like her next Mercedes to be a W220 Chassis. So... I can only hope I will find one before the W140 gets too many miles.

Too funny bhellmol,

My wife has informed me her next Mercedes I buy her is going to be a BMW Z3.
AND
"My" next Mercedes is going to be a black 2010 VW CC. But not to worry, she'll go to the dealer and pick it out for me so I don't have to be bothered with all the paperwork and hassell.
