1991 Mercedes 300SE: I am the 3rd owner , and I have owned this beautiful car for 3 years. I have driven it sparingly over the last 3 years adding only 3000 miles. The original owner purchased it new in Michigan, and retired to Phoenix a few years later. My friend did the window tint in 2003. He had asked to buy it when they were ready to sell. He purchased it in 2013, and subsequently sold it to me in 17. This is a great driving car. I will detail the condition below, but its been a favorite of mine for years. i am selling to purchase a 1992 500E.
Body: Excellent original paint. No clear coat failure. The chrome and stainless is in good shape. There are small chips and mars on the grill. The glass on the drivers headlight is cracked, but it works perfectly. The motor has a small oil leak, and sometimes coolant. I think the coolant is from the plastic bottle.
Chassis: Amazing condition showing the original Smoke Silver paint, and absolutely no rust. The bottom a is as nice as the top. On the chassis pics I have the inspection pan off, but it is back on and in excellent shape. I have installed new Michelin tires on 6-17-9 to replace the tires that had been on it for 20 years. They were in good shape but dry rotting. Suspension rides perfectly and does not pull to either side. The original tool roll is still in the plastic. The spare is a new looking Michelin, but I have never had it out to see the date code.
Motor and transmission: I have completed a tuneup as well as new lifters in the last 1000 miles. Also done was the belts hoses, and belt tenshioner. The engine runs great and pulls hard. Sometimes it is has to crack a bit to start and idles rough, but smooths out after a minute or two. The AC is excellent with the vacuum vents working properly as does the automatic climate control. I have made sure the cooling system operated properly allowing me to drive with the ac on when it is 110 degrees. The transmission shift perfectly.
Interior: The front drivers seat is slightly worn on the bolster. The rest of the seats show as new. The wood has slight spider cracking by the sifter the rest shows as new. The dash and door panels are excellent. Everything works as designed including the sun roof,Becker radio, cruise control. power windows,and even the locks. Sometimes you need the to give the locks a minute to operate. There is absolutely no smoke sell inside this car. It smells like a new car mixed with the unmistakable Mercedes leather sent.
