CAR IS SOLD PENDING PAYMENT




Here's the deal, just found out tonight that my grandmother is on her way out very soon via ALS disease and I would like to make her last few months as nice as possible, I'm selling everything I own that I don't need to survive to give her any and all comfort items that I can.

So, up for sale is my euro-spec grey market 1982 Mercedes Benz 500SE AMG. 136k original miles.

I am the second owner with a clean title in hand, This MB has the OG beautiful running and always reliable euro 5.0 V8 and smooth shifting hydrolic 4-speed auto tranny. Euro style velour manual seating, KM/H only gauge cluster face (and the orig unit) (but it rolls over by miles, also comes with americanized MPH gauge face and the doner KM/H cluster), full gen 1 AMG body kit, rare black spring AMG suspension and KYB adjustable shocks, very rare early style AMG steering wheel, custom Anthricite grey paint, DEPO HID euro headlamps with city lights, smoked corners, e-code tails, custom painted AMG by OZ 3-piece wheels with gold bolts and good tires, new tru-dual exhaust with no cats, molded in font grill, shaved hood star, chrome delete, CD player with dual amps and nice aftermarket speaks all around in very hard to find OEM sizes, zero dash cracks.

I get nothing but thumbs up and compliments from this car everytime I drive it. classic KBB is over $15K! without the mods. I havent been to a car show with out having dozens of people taking pics and people giving me their business cards to do more for professional shoots or website features, ect.

To be picky:
-The front seats have a few rips, and they are dyed black rather than the original blue, I was going to have it all re-done, but you can always find doner seats for fairly cheap too.
-The sunroof is off track, the motor is still working, but it doesnt move the roof.
-The door locks are run on a vaccume system, the locking system recently stopped working. Im sue its an easy fix, but it hasnt bothered me.
-Could use a respray, I was going to do this myself this coming year. The paint was done in Germany over 25 years ago, it shows some wear.
-The car is low, and has been for 25+ years. I bottom out doing 80 MPH on the highway over small bumps, Im am still on the original oil pan, but the bottom of the car shows wear and tear.

Overall, I would not hesitate to drive this car across the country right now, without any further treatment, I have driven it daily for months on end without issue . I change the synthetic oil every 6-7k miles, have NEVER been stranded, and get 20 MPG average.

If I can come up with enough money or my grandmother doesnt make it before this car goes, I will end the sale.

$6000 obo (shipped to the lower 48), no part outs, no trades.

You can contact me here on the thread, PM me, or text or call by my cell 360-516-3360

And I know this is a stretch, but if there is any people that want to just donate to the helping my grandmother fund, my paypal addy is [email protected]

Holy BONER! You know that sound that Homer Simpson makes when he sees a donut or a beer? I'm making that sound right now... Too bad I bought a wagon last month, I'd fly out and drive it home!
