Don't know what to make of this listing.
He doesn't put the VIN in the regular Ebay slot but lower in the listing. Doesn't match anything here.
Also, he blacks out the VIN on the attached pic of the window sticker?
VIN = WDBEA36E6RC154682

1994 Mercedes Benz E500 w124 500e LOW MILES - EXCELLENT - ORIGINAL - RECORDS
Please see many Hi-Res photos including undercarriage here:
This 1994 Mercedes-Benz E500 is in perfect condition and is arguably one of the finest and original w124 E500’s in the country. It looks, runs, and drives like new.
The first owner bought it new from W.I. Simonson Mercedes-Benz in Santa Monica, California and it has never left the state.
He meticulously cared for it, using it as a weekend car and accruing approximately 2,000 miles a year until he later stored it in his private collection. He sold it in 2015 to his former next door neighbor, who is a well-known car collector, Porsche PCNA instructor and moderator on Rennlist forum (whose name and info will be given only to next owner of the vehicle).
Paint is all original with no dents, dings, prior accidents, or paintwork. The original selling dealer painted the lower side trim and bumpers body color at time of original purchase and sale of the vehicle. (See window sticker and dealer add-ons)
The engine is extremely clean and the cadmium plating is perfect. (See detailed pics)
The interior is excellent, with absolutely no re-dyeing of the seats or sagging of the headliner. Carpets and floor mats are flawless. Bolster wear is extremely minimal. (See detailed pics)
The dashboard is in impeccable condition with no cracks, scuffs, warping, or discoloration.
All interior wood, including in the dash, door panels, and front and rear central storage compartments is perfect.
Absolutely everything works properly, including the gauges, lights, sunroof, seats, radio, CD changer, antenna, mirrors, and seat heaters amongst everything else.
Original Mercedes-Benz phone is also included (not in service).
No rust or corrosion at all and the undercarriage is extremely clean. (See detailed pics)
Included is the original window sticker with dealer add-ons, all books, warranty card, Lo-jack booklet, and radio card.
The spare tire and tool roll are both original and unused.
Included are the original 4 keys including an unused valet key still in its plastic and 3 master original keys in OEM leather sheath (only two pictured but have all three original and the valet).
It has been meticulously maintained with many detailed records. For example, some of the oil changes done at the dealer:
6/15/98 12834 (major service)
3/16/99 14266 (flush service)
The car was consistently started, warmed, serviced, and driven approximately 3,000 miles over the last 12 years while in his private collection.
Distributor caps and rotors, all air filters, rear hydraulic cells replaced and SLS fluid and system flushed, oil pan gasket replaced, transmission service, and brake and coolant flush all done recently in 2017. No leaks or drips at all and the self-leveling suspension works as it should.
Engine wire harness looks to have be replaced and updated but I couldn’t find it in the records so I bought a new OEM upper wiring harness which is included in sale. (See detailed pics)
The original wheels and Michelin tires with a lot of tread remaining (22k miles on them) are included but I replaced them due to age and also because the original wheels sold with the car are the less attractive chrome dealer installed option. (See window sticker and add-on)
Car is wearing brand new Mercedes EVO II wheels 17x8.25 shod with new Michelin SuperSport tires. These were allegedly the last set of these wheels made according to the Mercedes Classic Center in Irvine where they were purchased from, however it seems that claim might have been made more than once, but I would safely assume they are not available new anymore.
I also have a set of Three-Piece AMG OZ-Racing 17in wheels or 18in Two Piece AMG BBS wheels available to buyer at extra cost. (See detailed pics)
Last pic shows smaller than a dime sized flaw in clearcoat on front bumper. (Last pic in link)
