I have for sale a valve body for the E500/500E. The stamped part number on the valve body is 124 270 40 15, and it came from a 1992 400E. The date of manufacture of the valve body is 10/1991.
This is considered one of the "early" valve bodies of the three used on the 400E/E420. As such, it should be a direct bolt-on for any 500E
or E500with a 722.365 (early) transmission, and no intermediate plate should be required.
The valve body is completely cleaned and drained of all fluid, and has been cleaned and is read for installation.
Condition excellent. The valve body has been stored upright, so that all small plastic pieces are in their correct locations, and none are missing. Cleaning was done ONLY with lint-free polypropylene absorbent towels, as seen in the photos.
Valve body will be shipped in Saran wrap, surrounded by lint-free towels, to keep things complete. Shipping container will be a plastic/Tupperware container inside of a Priority Mail Large Flat Rate Box. Shipping + packaging will cost approximately $25-30 and is included in the price.
Price is USD $300 shipped Priority Mail in the US. This is a good deal; most valve bodies for sale here are going for the $300-350 range plus shipping.
If you've been considering upgrading your car to FGS, here's a great valve body to do it with.
