i am selling my 95 S600 sedan because i do not have the time nor the resources to fix the car.
The Bad:
It has the typical problem with the 95 models (soybean wiring) the engine harness has been replaced by the dealer and the pass throttle body accuators has been replaced as well. I rewired the body harness(mass air sensors) and the driverside throttle body. The right front shock needs to be replaced also,the cruise control lever has broken inside the steering column it is still there it is just not attached to anything i have no clue what happened to it just one day i went to put the cruise on it the lever just flopped around and as far as i know that is all that is mechanically wrong with the car.
The nic nac's:
the reverse guide little chrome rings have come off, the antenna does not work but it does not effect the reception, 2 of the 4 wood pcs around the seat controls on the door have come off (ds front and ps rear), the front bumper needs to be replaced and the clear is coming off the hood in a small spot and the same on the roof.
The good:
the interior is in great shape no tears or wear spots on the seats, all the leather and suede look almost like the day it was purchased the carpet could use a good cleaning all the power works door assit pump work fine everything else to my knowledge works the way it should
The car has all the normal opptions that all the 600's have the chrome wheels are ok it has newer michellin tires on it, the paint besides the two spots of clear i already mentioned is in good shape, the body may have 2 door dings on it so i would say it is in good shape. I have always put mobil 1 in it every 5k miles, i also have the original book that shows every thing that has ever been done to the car


the car has 150,xxx miles on it i was told my a mercedes specialist that if the car was fixed it would be worth 10-15k but as it sits 5-6k i'm going to ask $5500 for it OBO.


if you have any questions you can reply here email me at [email protected] or call me 601-941-9313
the car does run and drive now and it must love the cold i drove it yesterday (25f) and it ran like a scalded dog but as soon as it warms up it goes into that limp mode but u can drive it

i can email pics to anybody that needs them or if i could figure out how to post them i would

also the car is located in jackson ms and i will ship it anywhere you would like

The 1995 S600 Sedan is a terrific car. I used to own one. In Moonstone (dark grey). With light grey two-tone interior.

But it should be stated that what you are selling is a challenge to return to fully serviceable condition. This is not a car to be taken by someone without the resources to return it to good shape. This is not an easy car to 'bring back', but it is possible, with time and effort and, let's face it, some bucks.

The good news is: It is possible to do! And when you're done, you'll have a terrific car. 150,000+ miles is a fair amount of mileage but the engine is designed to go more than 500,000 miles.

Good luck!

any offers i going to try ebay for a couple of weeks then just part it out
Just part it out. I'd be more than happy to help you if you have dis-assembly questions. I am doing the same to a '93 600sel. Its got 75k miles and my mother bought it for $7.5k.

Parting out the S600 may not be a good option. I did that on occasion and ended up with crates of parts. It's usually more trouble than it's worth, and you really need to have a place to store parts both small and large. It would be best to sell the car in one piece and be done with it.

Agreed, it does take a certain amount of storage room and enough ebay/craigslist/etc knowledge to be able to do it. But in the long run I think it would make more money to part out than sell outright. I did it more for the experience and learning opportunity rather than the money. It's been very eye opening so far.

i no it would take up a lot of time and space but i would not sell the small parts until i had the major parts sold (motor tranny) because as of right now i can drive the car everyday so i want sell a small part that will shut it down, as that would get my money back out of the car then i could part it out for a week or two then the rest to the scrap man
