After months of thinking, I‘m reluctantly putting my pride and joy on the market. There is a saying: If you don’t touch a thing in over a year, you won’t need it. That‘s why I’ve finally, with a heavy heart, decided to try to sell my beloved 190 E2.6.
- A little about me: I am a (rather eccentric) German car mechanic specialising in Mercedes-Benz, who‘s got an eye for detail and doesn’t know where to draw a line when it comes to doing up his own things.
- A little about the car: 1991 MB190 E 2.6 with 141.xxx km’s, WOF and Rego on hold. Also comes with a classic car Valuation for insurance purposes. Car runs and drives well. Comes with a towbar.
Always parked in dry storage to keep it safe, I‘ve driven it during 4 years of ownership maybe 10.000km‘s,
Spend a lot of time underneath it fixing it. Because money never really mattered on that project, I only bought Mercedes-Benz genuine parts from the main dealership (receipts available, also old WOF sheets and so on).
What have I done so far?
- All maintenance up to date, last oil change a year ago and only 60 km’s driven since then.
- Behr radiator and all belt pulleys and tensioner upfront.
- Front and rear crankshaft seals, hood insulation matt, and transmission output shaft seal.
- Painted the airfilter housing lid nicely.
- Original rims professionally refurbished and repainted.
- Comes with 4 new Michelin tyres.
- Suspension bushes complete allround, couplings, all four springs + rubbers.
- Bilstein B6 shocks allround, front and rear sway bars painted matching to the shocks.
- Removed my rear axle to be able to paint the rear sway bar.
- Brakes (yes, park brake as well) allround, pads and discs.
- Surface rust killed and spraywaxed all underneath.
- Cruise control and indicator switches new inside, looks beautifully like new now.
- Stickers and other small bits as well.
- You name it I‘ve done it. Of course all the good things also have their opposite.
What you still have to do:
- Tidy up the chassis, rear right door dented, bumper edges scratched from previous owner.
- Rear axle linkages worn.
- Repair/ replace rear exhaust muffler (my idea was straight piping it).
- I think that’s pretty much it. I’ve done most of it, just needs a little bit more to finish it off properly.
Car can be viewed and driven with a bit of notice.
I am in no rush to sell but just putting it out there for realistic offers. You won’t find a better one, that‘s for sure. Car will have a reasonable reserve at $11,999 ono
Happy Bidding everyone.
