For sale is 1988 W201 190E 2.6 in Champagne Silver. The VIN is W[hidden information]F[hidden information] (picture attached). Offered for sale elsewhere so reserve the right to pull item if sold. The buyer will need trailer to take the car away.
Bought as parts car for the fuel system so could convert my own car from LPG back to petrol, so it's missing the fuel tank, pumps/accumulator, fuel lines, fuel distributor and AFM, and the lines to the injectors. The original tank from my car was different shape, because the tank from the donor car didn't fit, so the centre section of the bulkhead between the rear seats and the boot was cut out of both cars, and the donor car section was welded into the keeper car. The panel cut from my car has not been fitted to the donor, but will come with the car.
The driver seat has three broken springs, but otherwise the seats are in good condition (they are vinyl, not leather). The tops of the door cards are coming unstuck but are otherwise in OK condition.
The car ran when bought it, but the water pump was leaking heavily. On the short drives took it on so as not to risk overheating, it ran, rode and handled well, and the transmission shifted positively. The previous owner told me it had been rebuilt about 40,000 km ago. It has just under 375,000 km on the odometer. It will need new ignition distributor cap, rotor and base. To be clear, this has the M103 cylinder engine, which along with the trans, is worth what I'm asking alone.
I have also removed the A/C compressor for use on another car, so the water pump, power steering pump, belt tensioner,fan shroud and condenser have been removed but will come with the car. I'm also keeping the radiator.
There are four alloy wheels (6.5J) with the car, one is in the boot with no tyre fitted, so steel wheel is on the car. The fifth tyre will come with the car loose. Two of the tyres are reasonably new.
There are some dings in the panels, which I've tried to picture one in the top of the LH front wing, and another in the rear driver side door are the most obvious ones. The grille is missing section of plastic, but there should be plenty of salvageable parts.
This vehicle might be suitable for someone looking to create track racer it's priced will within the limit for Le Mons or maybe V8 conversion, couple of things I've considered myself, but know I'll never get round to it with the other cars have, so it'd be good if someone else can find use for it.
The car is located near Bendigo and the buyer will need to trailer to take the car away.
I hope the above provides enough detail about the current state of the car, and thanks for looking.
