This is a single owner, hand built vehicle with all the records, Call 408 992 1169 for the details.

I love super descriptive no photographic ads like these (wtf?) I followed up and here are some more details. On the phone I was told over 48 service records.



"Has about 235k miles and all the service records from day 1, everything done at MB. 1 owner vehicle and has brand new michelin tires all around. You can reach me at 4089921169 to setup an appointment."

That is correct, exterior color 702 - Smoke Silver. From the pics it looks like the clear coat has failed and it will need a full respray. 1 owner with all records since new sounds promising, but only if all the important bits have been replaced. At 235k they should have been or the next owner certainly will have to do them.

Yup, Smoke Silver with Cream-Beige interior... same as my wife's '92. Price seems on the high side given the poor paint and high mileage. It should be mechanically near flawless to justify $9k, IMO. Both headlights appear to be mis-aligned, which could indicate prior damage to the front end - check the CarFax/AutoCheck reports. On the bright side, the interior appears to be in above-average condition, except for the odd blue stain in the carpet behind the driver's seat. Give the car a proper paint job and it should be really nice.

Wow, this car looks rough in some key ways on the exterior, but decent on the inside.

Not in my database as having come up for sale before, so I've added it.

Cheers,

Gerry,

I thought I saw this before but nothing came up when I searched via VIN. Its the same as this one that Dave posted a few weeks back from Santa Clara. Link below. Now we have the VIN. Front seats were under covers the whole time hence they look great now.

No affiliation. Looks like the initial auction pictures prior to the repair. Dealer claims repairs completed. I will try to get VIN and mileage.

I remember this one - it has been posted before (probably without VIN). Should have cream-beige interior, btw. Shame he can't post current photos!

Dave,

You're are right. Posted before. I just called. Car is actually in Santa Clara, don't know what this dealer is doing. Same as ad linked below. Maybe Gerry can fix this and combine the threads.

However, NO mention of Salvage title in previous thread. Which is an important thing to be up front with.

Hi Gerry,

New to the site. Interested in this vehicle. This vehicle appears to have need of some repairs. The 3 or so reviews are negative about the dealership experience of prior customers. Can you give some tips to guide me in getting the information to make a decision to purchase the vehicle please. It appears to have come from a Sacremento auction, a insurance sale? The mis aligned headlamps are said to possibly indicate a accident and damage to the front end... I will appreceiate any suggestions you give.

Thanks.

Just found this while browsing some craigslists ads:

Checked this car out last month. It's in pretty bad shape. Paint is badly oxidized and there is a bad dent with rust in one of the rear quarters. After looking at it, I decided to not even try driving it.

Heavy miles, too much tire shine.. But might still be a good car even If paint and dent is issue, but make sure their story checks out regarding service history and 1 owner

The car is in Sunnyvale. I think I used European Auto Works at 629 N. Matilda Ave. (408) 737-2200 in 2005 to check out at 300 CE which they recommended I not buy after they inspected it.
