Hey guys
Found this one for sale (very cheap $3800) on carsales down here.
Very unusual color scheme - can't say I have seen one before.

Special order or tampered with?
Not sure visa - the interior from what I can see is totally green scheme, door panels, dash, carpet. That would imply fitted that way.

The Vin decoder says :

Paint Code 254 PINE GREEN - Check

Interior Code 276 Leather Pine Green - Check (or I guess it is)

Guessing it's a special order maybe ! Makes it kinda unique.
Steering wheel is a Momo though so would say that might be an add-on !

One of the old forum members whose 300CE got written off in an accident is keen on it so it might be joining our ranks !

Bumper caps have also been painted. They would be black with that model year. Missing tow hook cover. Certainly worth looking into IMO.

Jayare - you picked it in one !

Our old mate MMerc60 went and had a look on the weekend for himself.

Piece of crap, badly looked after only saving grace was engine seemed sound.
He is not into doing a restoration so he is passing.

Interior was cracked and dirty, some rust (maybe cancerous), leaks, parking brakes gone - a disaster on wheels basically.

Such a shame would have been good to get him back into one seeing most on Carsales these days are sitting at 10k+ price tag.

Same tear in the driver's seat (still) blue/blue - 199,000 kms. That's MMERC's old car. I have told him it has just sold - he is beside himself.
Had he known would have bought it back again.
Looks like the seller done pretty good repair job !

Yeah, I remember when it was smashed but didn't know this was it. If I had of known I would have said something as I spotted this a week ago when it was listed on ebay:(
The front right wheel arch looks dodgy and wasn't it a statutory write off with structural damage?

Well hold your breath he may have bought it ! LOL
Been on text with him and he got in touch with the seller.
Going over this afternoon ! He loves that car ! :thumbsup:

No it was written off due to cost to repair not because of structural damage.
You figure replacement costs for doing a rear guard, trunk bumper etc for an 1989 Mercedes abd you talking big dollars in parts alone.
And then there's the expensive paint job etcetera etcetera etcetera....

So the love affair may resume? Personally I never go back with an ex (except maybe for a quick drive around the block for old times sake!:wink_2:
