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.

    1. 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.
    2. 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.
