    FS: 1992 E500, Pearl Black/Gray, 38kmi, $49k (Burlingame, CA)

    No Affiliation.

    Apologies if there is an existing thread for this car. I searched, but did not find anything.

    VIN = WDBEA36E3NB713508

    https://mercedesheritage.com/classified/show-ad?id=198


    Details:
    Pearl Black - Grey Leather - ID# WDBEA36E3NB713508
    Sold new on 3-31-1992 by Boulevard Motors Inc. in St. Louis MO.
    It was subsequently sold to the the most recent owner in December 1993 with 9,785 miles showing.

    Used sparingly since then the car now shows just under 38k miles. Full handbooks.
    2nd owner sales invoice/purchase receipts - Consistently serviced - No alterations other than a cleverly installed radar detector.
    Tools - Original safety kit.

    This small series of Mercedes was a collaboration with Porsche and the 500E and E500 are known by Porsche as Type 2758 in that company's official nomenclature. The most collectible year by virtue of being the most powerful of the series and the production most closely associated with Porsche. Each 500 E was hand-built by Porsche, being transported back and forth between the Mercedes plant and Porsche's Rossle-Bau plant in Zuffenhausen, Germany during assembly — taking a full 18 days to complete each model.

    Eminently collectible, this first generation 500E is a particularly usable Mercedes Young Classic.

    Original paint (refinished front valance)
    Original and superb interior - Never smoked in - Perfect door panels - Perfect dash.
    Perfect gauges - Clean Headliner - Excellent carpets - New set of factory floor mats included.
    Cold AC - Everything functions correctly including the rear sunshade.

    Our preparation included:
    C-service – Safety check
    Renew differential fluid
    Replace front strut rubber dust boots
    Replace belt tensioner and serpentine belt
    New brake hoses front/rear and fluid flush
    Reseal power steering reservoir/replace pump to box line
    Replace engine mounts/trans mount
    Replace shift linkage bushings as nec.
    Remove/clean ws washer jets
    Replace ws wiper blades
    Steam clean undercarriage
    AC Service

    Very nice... very fresh.
    Rare- american car with soft non squeaking armrest
    Used both of them, know exactly what i´m talking about. Even without a glovebox i would never want to use this hard and loud peace of plastic ever again. Sorry for my rant.

    Daannnggg. That is one nice car. The only thing I can spot was slightly grungy center console wood next to the window switches. I hope they get all the $$$ for this car.

    Why would you "steam clean undercarriage" but not post even one picture???

    The center console wood finish looks messed up on the back half... doesn't appear to be a lighting / camera issue. Otherwise, it appears to be a really nice car. Shame it has that soft, squishy armrest instead of a proper-flip top (1992 models didn't get the flip-top armrest in USA). Undercarriage photos are a requirement at this price point, IMO, but buyers in this price range probably won't blink at paying a few hundred bucks for an independent PPI to get those pics.

    I rather like my soft, squishy armrest. But then again, I'm not one to carry a bunch of extra stuff around in the car. This is a nice one. There are a few other nice MB's on that site.

    This car wears its California garage queen status well. A lot of gray interior cars in warm climates (mine included) show discoloration in the center console by now, which is the primary reason my center console is now dyed black.

    I pinged the seller for more info. He responded quickly and thoroughly.

    Original wiring in situ. No record of replacement. Signs of degradation are visible according to seller.
    Undercarriage appears to be in reasonably good shape.
    Headliner is beginning to separate at the aft edge of the sunroof.

    The Boss is questioning our need for another sedan. I'm not sure she quite understands why I would want a 500E. Especially since it's not as fast as my E63S. Her words, not mine. lol

    Obviously, I need to invest more time into spousal education/enlightenment.

    I mean no disrespect against the E63S.
