85 190e

I found a 1985 190e 2.3 that has an airbag and dual power seats! I did not know they went back that far! It is a one owner and has a solid rust free body and a decent interior. The car runs great and has 153k miles.

My problem is that it needs a tranny. It is an automatic and I can pick up the car for $800. Is this a good deal?

Where can I get a used tranny? Atlanta-Stuttgart is out. Does anyone have any suggestions?

They also have a 81 300d for sale with 288k miles. It looks even better than the 190! Good Michelins and they said they spent $8 on the engine and tranny the past 2 yrs! I can buy it for $1200. I know that is fair.

Current stable......
17' rogue SV 10k
16' golf sportwagen 20k
01' e320 203k

previous MB units..
01' e320 171k (regret sale)
91' 300d 2.5t 300k (sold to ecoofidaho)
79' 240d 177k (old yellow my avatar)
87' 300d 169k (junk but fast)
85' 300tdt 261k (RBM parts delivery)
85' 300dt 68k (one owner cream puff)
82' 240d 250k
84' 300dt 198k (sold to diesel don)
91' 190e 2.3 61k
88' 260e 140k

So they spent 8 dollars on it last year. What a bargain. Just kidding. I've never seen a 85 190E with an air bag. Check the pollution sticker under the hood. That's the best way to tell what year model it is. As far as the transmission I would have it rebuilt if you are serious about keeping the car. You've already got a used one and I believe you can get another 100K miles on the car if it was properly maintained.

So my '85 190E 2.3 with 51K will go another 200K?! Pretty good investment for a few thousand bucks I would hope.

I had the tranny rebuilt on my '89 190E 2.6 for about $1500.
