Low Miles Mercedes 2.3-16 For Sale: Another Success Story

Matt emailed me tonight to give me the heads up that his Merc 190 2.3-16 was for sale. Naturally I had spotted it on eBay earlier today and had it bookmarked to blog tonight. It seemed like deja vu, and it turns out it was as this car was listed earlier this year on, and he was the high bidder.

To be honest, I’ve clicked back on my own post a number of times thinking to myself, “that was a damn good deal on really good looking car. Why didn’t I buy that?!” Maybe you’ve been thinking that too, and now you have your chance too.

I’ve got his car posted over at one of my new blogs,

Good luck with the sale Matt!

This rare model is in Excellent condition. First owner to 1997 78000 miles from Dallas TX. Second owner and winter stored,was from Greendale WI. Also second owner was a officer in the local Merceedes club and searched the country to find a near perfect 190E 16V before finding this car for sale in Dallas.

He spent close to $20,000 in his ownership to keep it like new and buy many spare NOS maintainence parts that are in boxes included in the sale along with a complete set of factory service manuals. The interior retains the original material and the paint is also as factory applied in 1987 and has been invited to and shown regurlarly ( from 2000 untill 2006 ) at local concours shows as it is still excellent with no inclement weather use.

This car is currently bid at $15k and the buy-it-now was $16k. Good money for this well looked after example and still a remarkable value compared to it’s main competitor, the BMW e30 M3. Considering good examples are moving for $8-12k, this looks like a good buy for a car that will need nothing for years to come.
