1991 Mercedes-Benz E-Class

Up for sale is my trusted 1991 Mercedes 300E sedan. I have had this car for 2 1/2 years. The car is in very good condition though the body definitely needs a new coat of paint. There are a few dings here and there but no major damage. The car has never been involved in an accident and structurally is very sound. I sustained an injury and can no longer continue my restoration which was being done in stages.
The paint on the roof shows a lot of abrasions (from previous owner), in the finish. The car starts immediately, drives very well and never overheats. The air-condition works but may need topping up with gas every year. It may have a very slow leak but there is no way for me to test this. The climate control works as it should. Idle speed is very good and the car never cuts off. The following work was done on the car by me to keep it in tip-top condition.
Shocks were changed in 2015 but it appears the car might need new ones.
4 Brand new Yokohama Avid Ascend tires - less than 3000 miles.
Spare tire in the trunk is a Bridgestone ( the best of the previous tires changed in September 2017)
New brake pads - front and rear
Re-manufactured brake calipers- rear only
Complete cylinder head job - I did this for my peace of mind
New valves, valve guides, springs and seals - all cylinders
New cylinder head gasket
New timing chain adjuster
New oil pan gasket
Fresh sealing of front timing chain cover.
New rotor
New plugs
New timing chain cover seal
New camshaft seal
New water pump seal - changed the water pump to a brand new one in 2015
Brand new Injector nozzles.
Brand new oxygen sensor.
Brand new vacuum valve for the transmission.
Brand new radiator BEHR
Brand new radiator clutch
Brand new serpentine belt - not installed
I upgraded the alternator with one from a 1996 S500 ( no more issues with battery dying after a few days of non-use).
Since i did all this work on the engine, i have put over 300 miles on the car and it is still in fantastic condition. I love the fact that it starts immediately now and does not run too hot even in very hot weather. The auxiliary fan kicks in at about 90 degrees (as it should).
The 6 speakers that came with the car have been replaced. I uses Alpine SPS in the dash, Rockford Fosgate in the doors and Alpine SPR at the rear. The speakers are powered by an Alpine amplifier and installed in the car is a fully functional Pioneer DEH 9600BT head unit.
I have a lot of parts, used an unused which i will gladly include in the sale.
