Hey, all... someone I know has a 300E I can look at, since word was passed to him that I'm looking to buy one. The car is cosmetically in perfect shape, supposedly the A/C even blows cold, and it is a 1986 vehicle. The only issue (without looking at the car) is the mileage... it has 313307 miles on it. On one hand, the car LOOKS to be very well maintained, and if the A/C works, it means the owner has kept up with fixes. OTOH, looks can be and often are deceiving... especially with old Mercs. Is it worth the risk to even look at a 1986 300E with that many miles?
