    Mercedes Benz 500E 1992 - $12750
    .
    This 1992 Mercedes Benz 500E has been a fantastic car!! I bought it in 2000, it has been regularly maintained and although I've vacillated on selling it, I don't need two vehicles at this time. I have looked at other '92 500E's online now and have priced this accordingly to sell quickly. $12,750.

    It is a 5.0-liter DOHC V8 paired with a 4-speed automatic transmission, dark gray color, and has 126,XXX miles. The Mercedes interior leather is in good shape, seats 4 comfortably, and my favorite attributes are the way it handles, is such a smooth ride, and is fast!

    Overall it is in good shape, there are a few dings and minor paint chips. Items recently replaced include a complete wiring harness, fan belt, and battery. Car can be shown in Cave Creek or Cottonwood.

    This could be a good buy for someone here.
    Bad Pics, price is reasonable subject to more info and a PPI.

    Same car. I assume painted due to hail damage, and a rear end accident.

    This makes the totaled $10k salvage-auction cars look like a joke. At the new price, I'd be surprised if it lasts very long. If nothing else, a flipper might snap it up to re-list at $20k with better photos.

    Given the one on BaT sold for $18k and change, I see that as a risky buy given the disabling accident on the Carfax.

    Is there a CarFax report I'm not seeing? An awful lot of 036's have an accident somewhere in their history. The bigger question is how bad was the accident, and was it repaired properly.

    Yes, I ran an autocheck on the car. Accident noted as "disabling."

    So, this guy has been trying to sell this car since Dec '17? The price went from $16k to now $12k. Interesting.

    Now it's showing up on Ebay for $23K BIN!!

    Don't they know we watch these cars??

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/323570861456 <--Listing ends Dec-3, 2018. #24k BIN / OBO.

    1992 Mercedes Benz 500e, 2 owner car, excellent condition

    I am pleased to offer this 1992 Mercedes Benz 500E.

    Chances are if you're looking at this at this listing, you know what this car is, you know how it's made, and you know how rare and collectible they are becoming.

    This car has had only two owners and it's life and has been very well maintained.

    Exterior paint is in excellent condition with very few blemishes, the factory 17" Sport wheels have been refurbished and the tires are brand new.

    The interior is an absolutely amazing condition for a car of this age, with the only noticeable blemishes being hairline cracks on some of the wood trim, which is very typical.

    The car is an absolute Powerhouse, and Autobahn Cruiser and wolf in sheep's clothing...

    You will be hard-pressed to find a finer automobile produced from this era. It has the finest engineering from both Porsche and Mercedes.

    Also comes with original owner's manuals and service booklet and receipts.

    If you are a purist and desire the car with the original 16" Wheels and orange and red light bezels I can switch them.

    Thanks for looking, make me an offer and take her home!

    Review my feedback and bid with confidence, I have shipped cars to every corner of the globe and would be happy to assist with transportation if needed.

    Is it the same owner/seller as in the Dec 2017 eBay listing?

    Nope.

    The 2017 CL listing back-tracked to a phone number in Winslow, AZ. Pics appear to be consistent with that location.


    The current ebay listing shows AZ plates. The pics have a fishing port background. And the ebay account tracks back to a place called "Global Car Marketing" 1301 E Miller Ave, Salt Lake City, UT 84106-3002

    Thanks, Ace!

    Wow, Dave called it exactly months ago when he said a flipper would be buying this car and selling it for $20K. Except you were too conservative, as it’s BIN’d at $23K.

    Nice prediction, GSXR !!

    The close-to-100% “flipper markup” has got to be close to an E500E record, particularly in this short of a time frame.

    Perhaps someone can ask the flipper as to what he has done to the car to warrant the mark-up. And it had better not be “washing and buffing out,” LOL!

    The car sat unsold for the better part of year. I gotta laugh at a flipper who thinks they can turn a sow's ear into a silk purse.
    There's a strong headwind these days. This guy should invest in an anemometer.

    Odd the new seller/dealer thinks the different wheels with wrong-size tires are somehow more attractive than the stock wheels. OK, the stockies were chromed, but still. Current wheels look similar to the W210 E430 Sport wheels, but I can't tell for sure... proper tire size would have helped a bit.
