85 280TE project $2500 SF Bay Area

1985 Mercedes S123 280TE: 2.8L M110 straight six paired to the four speed automatic.

Has an indicated 60xxx miles. It has fresh plugs and injectors. A shop looked at it and they managed to seal most of the vacuum leaks. Starts and idles, but will die when the accelerator is pressed. The shop mentioned that the fuel distributor is leaking internally. The fuel pump could be a problem too.

Has the rear facing bench seat. The passenger window switch works going down but not up. All other windows work fine. The radio is missing. Some of the woodgrain as pictured is peeling and is in need of attention. The rear view mirror fell off but is in the car. The rear hatch shocks will need to be replaced.

The exterior has surface rust but there does not seem to be any major rust – there is a small hole on the windshield wiper cowl. The interior is quite dirty and needs care. The MB-Tex is still plenty soft, though.

They made less than 20,000 of the 2.8L M110 powered wagons in the world, and none were ever brought to the US officially. Online, I’ve only seen a handful, so this is a decently rare car here stateside.

There is a box of parts in the back for it, including a new fuel pump, new brake pads, and a new oil filter. Would be the perfect quarantine project if you want something that says that you are a wo/man of taste who appreciates what a real car looks like and what a real car should be.

There is no title and will come with a bill of sale only. It has not been registered in decades and is no longer on the DMV computer.

$2500 cash – bring a trailer to tow it away (does roll and the brakes work), and maybe your affluent European country sporting dreams can come true:

Give me an email and we can arrange for a time for you to view it.

Not mine, no stake in sale.
