Talking Yet another car! 1991 300E 4MATIC for a whopping $150.00

Okay, so its pretty much a parts car. But still the price is quite a deal.

So what if it is missing the driver's door and seat, hood, grill, fenders, lights, AMS module, radiator and cooling fans, and climate control module, vacuum pump, relays, and almost all of the switches. It still has oodles of what I can use for 4Matic specific spares for my 300TE 4Matic. Body parts remainng have ZERO rust!

I intend to pull the following 4Matic parts for spares:

front suspension, axles, and brakes,
transmission,
transfer case (so now I will have 5 spares),
engine with front differential,
rear differential,
ECU & ABS control module,
hydraulic control,
steering angel sensor
brake light switch,
system test switch
instrument cluster,

Other regular items not 4Matic specific worth harvesting include:

Airbag,
tires & wheels,
blower motor and resistor,
radio and power amp.,
shifter
A/C condenser, evaporator, compressor
glass,
left rear quarter panel (for use on the 300D rust repair),
sunroof mechanism (to repair the 300TE slides, riser, etc),
cruse control amplifier,
antenna,


Items pretty much trashed include:

carpet
steering wheel (moldy)
two of four door panels,

Here are a few pic's:

WTF on the rear spring! How can you bend a spring like that? Don't tell me that 4matics are like that originally...?

That's the front springs, I am pretty sure they are like that stock to make room for the front drive shafts. Pretty weird. I've seen a 300E 4-matic in person and looked it all over....looks like a nightmare to repair/work on. I think I'd rather risk getting stuck in the snow. (which we never have)

How do you get any car for $150 when a scrap yard will pay $400-$500?

The owner heard he needed to remove the gas before any scrap yard would take it and that was one step too many for him to do. I can do that for a couple hundred dollars no problem.

Well I finished picking off all the good parts. The rest I cut up and tomorrow gets sold for scrap. The neighbors are please, but worried I'm only making room for something else. Their fears are not without some foundation. Enjoy the picks!









The following are some of the body parts I'm reusing, so they're not getting scrapped.

The problem with a third shed is you then need a fourth.
