Description 1988 Mercedes-Benz 300-Series

The Classy styling and the Showroom Condition of this Southern
California 300CE makes it a real head turner. I get compliments on it all the
time. This
300CE is enjoys a robust build quality the likes of which will never be seen
again. Interior, exterior, and mechanically this 300CE is flawless. Don’t
mistake the 300CE for a cheap C class. This is a true hand-built E Class Coupe
during an era when a Mercedes was a Mercedes.  Unbelievable Quality even after 25 plus years - Originally
Cost $55,000. Starting bid less than a tenth of that!
Fully Loaded with
heated seats, cruise, sunroof, leather, full-power, air conditioning, ABS, SRS,
telescoping steering wheel, Automatic, wipers on the headlights, etc…
Driven on average less
than 5k miles per year; currently 146,000 original miles.
3 owner car; clean
title; have title on hand.
Bulletproof Drivetrain
- 3.0 Liter Straight Six (It is not uncommon to reach half a million miles).
Very roomy and
comfortable (I am 6’1” 250 pounds and find it very roomy).
Engine Purrs and
Tranny shifts perfectly with lots of "get up and go"
The 124 Series had a
modern chassis so they drive like modern cars; unlike cars made in the 60’s and
70’s
Good Gas Mileage – 15
City, over 20 Hwy.
Air condition
converted to R134 (Away from Freon) Blows Ice Cold!
Beautiful Instrumental
panel and center console trimmed with Zerbena Wood.
Very rare
beautiful color combination – Imperial Red with Crème interior. Never Been in Accident;
Beautiful Original paint; Never Smoked in.
This car is so mint it
is like a time machine :)
I love this car and
after ten years as my daily driver I am going to miss her, but it's time
for someone else to enjoy her. I am going to be getting a hatchback to accommodate
my dogs. (one now but plan to rescue one more)
Body/Paint 8 out of 10
(needs a good wax job and it will be 9 out of 10)
Interior 9 out of 10
(needs a new pair of floor mats)
Mechanical 9 out of 10
(Nothing outstanding)
Over $12,000 Spent not
to mention the time and love
Also routine repairs
like brakes, battery, and alternator have all been done. I only use Mercedes
genuine parts. Oil changes were done every 2500 miles. In addition, I happen to
be a perfectionist so every little thing that might go wrong was fixed. I have
kept all the receipts. You should budget $150-$200 per month for maintenance
and repairs. Historically I spend $1000 every 6 months or so.
Again as I mentioned
earlier it is not uncommon to have these cars go to half a million miles with
proper regular maintenance.
I know it is hard to
make a 25 year old car perfect but I sure got pretty close with this one.
If you live far from
Los Angeles and plan to buy this car unseen, I hope my perfect EBAY rating will
put your mind at ease. Just remember you need to arrange your own shipping.
NADA sets the value of
a vehicle in the condition at $10,350. This does not take into account all the
extras like the low mileage, Navigation, Custom 16" wheels, Custom Stereo,
etc... They describe it in this fashion - "Excellent condition
overall, completely restored or an extremely well maintained original
vehicle showing very minimal wear. The exterior paint, trim, and mechanics are
not in need of reconditioning. The interior would be in excellent
condition."
I think you will be
hard pressed to find a similar E class Coupe in this condition, with these
extras, and in this color combination at any price. Even if you find one with
half the miles I doubt it will be in this condition. I will be happy to provide
a current diagnostic report from an AAA authorized service shop for those that don’t
reside locally.
This car will hold its
value and might even be a collector's item one day, who knows.
This gorgeous, classic Mercedes coupe
needs to go to a good home. I set the starting bid low @ $5000, but I hope get closer to $7k for this beauty. Please bid generously; you won’t regret it!
Even though this car is in excellent condition it is a used vehicle and sold
“AS IS’ with no actual or implied warranties or guarantees.
