I decided to purchase another 1992 500E from my neighbor here in Doha.
We decided on the price between what I was asking and between what he was asking.
Paint code: 904-Midnight Blue
Interior code: 272-Blue leather
The car needs a lot of repairs so it will be a slow restoration process as I have another 1992 500E Nautical Blue which I will send back home.
After careful thinking and evaluation of the advantages and disadvantages of restoration of this Midnight Blue 1992 500E, I decided NOT to part this great car but to slowly restore it to the best of my ability.
It will take some time but I beleive it will be worth it.
The car has no rust.
Only scratches and scrapes and small dents.
I personally do not like the brown color of the re-done seats/interior but thats the last item after painting it all shiny 904.
Car runs strong but hesitates on idle.
To be done:
Engine computer test.
Upper and lower engine wire harnesses.
All engine gaskets sets to be replaced.
All engine breather hoses on top of the manifold.
Examination under the valve covers.
All fluids and hoses to be replaced asap.
All rubber intake hoses and filters.
New oil pan and lower and upper gasket, oil level sender, strain.
New 500E headlights
New side blinkers.
Power steering hoses.
New SLS tank.
New Water tank
All new bushings in front and rear
Engine and tranny mounts of course.
New front and rear OE shocks, boots, supports and buffer stops.
New gasket set for cylinder heads and valve covers
If anyone has access and time I would like the Datacard for this VIN if possible.
