1988 Mercedes 300SEL - $2500 (pics added)

To update those that were interested, this car is no longer for sale and will be deleted soon. I have discussed with my parents the situation and I think I will be giving this car to my mom and selling my Lexus, then buying myself another cheaper car. Its just this Mercedes is a much cheaper car to operate and service than the LS400 is and feel its in my moms best interest to drive the 300SEL and not the LS400. I will be getting the 300SEL in tip-top condition for her as the month wears on. As of now its not for sale and the ad will delete soon... thanks for the interest.


More photos on request..... (car is dirty in these photos)

I will... the paint is good. Entire car was repainted a few years ago because the paint was faded. Its never been wrecked.

Now its down to where I am about going to have to sell the car. My Lexus is needing some fairly heavy maintainence and I cant afford all of this. I still owe money on the Lexus and cant get out of it what I owe on it at this point, so I guess its the Mercedes that will have to go.

I dont think $2500 is out of line for a nice Mercedes. Is it? I have heard the saying there is nothing more costly than a cheap Mercedes, but this car is not a piece of crap. Its a nice 20 year old car, but its true, its not perfect. If I had the time/money if I were to keep it, I would change the tires, fix the brakes, change the coolant to MB coolant or Zerex, repair the cruise control, power antenna and that would be it. As mentioned it also has that slight fluctuation on steady light acceleration. From what I am told... this is a simple repair for a DIY'er.

I mentioned it had a slightly and occasionally sticking rear brake. I ordered a new hose, but they sold me the wrong one (too short). I have to take the old hose and see if they can match it. I dont think it would hurt to drive the car like this for a short distance... most of my trips about about 40 miles per trip and in town. On the highway, it may heat up more, so it would need to be address and repaired before driven a long way on the highway or trailered. I am also planning on changing out the brake fluid... the weather has been terrible here today with rains and wind! Maybe tomorrow.

Prefer to sell since I am needing the cash, but as mentioned, I will consider trading it for a nice 1990-94 Lincoln Town Car or 1991-93 Caprice Classic.

I am convinced with the brakes fixed it will sell via craigslist.
