Got a reply from the seller to some questions prompted by information from this thread. Think I might pass on this one. Too many red flags going up.

I bought the car from an independent Mercedes dealer about 5 months ago and it came with no books or records. According to Carfax it was one owner car. Tailgate stays up, passenger rear is inop, power antenna inop, and the climate control vacuum elements have been removed to allow the air to flow only from dash vents and to prevent future problems ( ??? doesn't sound too kosher to me). The antilock brake light is on. Rear suspension rides soft, it has the optional hydrolic leveling system.

AT $3500/4000 it is a good buy. Figure a Grand for ac system repair. Probably require dash remova and new control box... if its a solid car otherwise.

Pass. That car sounds like a mess.

This car just popped back up the radar at 'best offer over $4,000'.

Course, I don't have cash burning a hole in my pocket anymore. Oh well.

If anyone else is interested, I still have the big pics online.
