    Geez,

    To bad you didn’t you see that add yesterday. On our way to the Ronald Reagan Library in Simi Valley, my wife and I stopped in Arcadia Saturday morning. We were going to Goldstein’s Bagels. It’s just a block off of the 210 Freeway on Santa Anita off ramp. I was staring at RUSNAK’s Dealership when I made a U-turn to get to Goldstein’s.

    Under heavy protest from my beloved wife, I would have taken a look at it. Arcadia is at least 50 mile drive on a traffic congested freeways (even on Saturday) from my home in the OC. Simi Valley was another hour north of Arcadia.

    It looks nice in the pics. I wonder if Rusnak took it in on trade or somebody working there owned it. There not bashful about the price. I wonder if Gerry has any info on it. No motor shots. I’m loosing it that 500E license plate formerly belonged to another car who sold his car 14 years ago when he moved to main. I think he is on this board also. It will come to me as soon as I post this and I’ll have to edit already.

    Notice in a couple of the pics a 201 in the background. It to could be for sale.

    No prior record of this in my personal database. This is the earliest officially US-imported, US-spec 500E that I have in my detailed records. I'll have to do a bit more research, to determine what number of import it was into the US.

    It's interesting that the production date was ~April, 1991, but the delivery date was not until ~July, 1991. Given the code 802 on the data card, this car was likely sold in the US as a 1992 model.

    Indeed, a fairly rare color for a US-spec car.

    Cheers,
    Gerry

    This was the THIRD car that was officially imported into the US by MBNA at the time.

    This car was originally sold by MB of South Bay, in Torrance, CA when new.

    There were 19 cars of this color brought into the US (1.3% of US imports), and of those 19, 15 of them had this interior leather color. Same color as Roma's car.

    So, this is a "1 of 15" car, at least for the US.

    Cheers,
    Gerry

    I’m half glad I live too far away and am out of garage space....could be a great buy for someone if it checks out and yeah I’m +1 on that rare color combo. Looks sweet with the rims.

    It's likely ambient temp of around 100F augmented by external heat soak caused by idling and engine heat getting picked up by the ambient temp sensor. My cars do this all the time in the summer when not moving forward.

    You can tell the car was not warmed up by the oil pressure being pegged at idle. If the engine & oil had been fully warmed up, the oil pressure would be between 1.25 and 2.5 bar at idle.

    They aren't shy on their pricing either.

    They are listing an '86 W201 - 4cyl auto with 45K miles for $25K.

    Both are unusual for a dealer to be messing with - maybe employee's cars?

    Concur...just thought it was funny that it was showing 106 but certainly not a comment on any heat related problem or anything...just an attempt at humor. Easily fixed...just change it to Celsius and it goes way down. ��. Hope someone can see the car and give us more details..

    I think a dealer would take anything on a trade-in if their sales management thinks they can flip it and make a few bucks.

    I agree though, the pricing for this 500 is a bit rich .... quite a bit rich. About $10K too rich, and that’s generous and if things check out. Probably more like $15K+ over.

    I bet if they did indeed take it as a trade-in, they paid out way way under $20K for it. What more recent used car can you more than double the asking price on, and realistically sell it for at or near double the price? Win win for the stealership.

    And this car is going to be carrying a minimum of $5+K deferred maintenance. Can almost guarantee that motor mounts, chassis rubber, brake lines and many other soft items haven’t ever been done .... and all those soft parts are now well over 25 years old.

    The 190 looks to be a 16 valver. Evo wheels and bodywork can be seen.

    I suspect this car was (is) owned by someone with connections to the dealer. They obviously knew what they had based on the license plates. I really doubt someone traded this car in. That would be stupid.

    Mine was formerly owned by a dealership owner, as was my 55. That would make sense here, dealership owner (or someone high up) liquidating two cars. In which case, it’s probably been well looked after and appropriately priced.

    That’s a free guess, worth less than $.02. But with MB going to “cars as a service”, self driving and electric all around, it might be a good time to cash in. Certainly not a foolish thought.

    The Carfax shows NorCal registration since new. And consistent light usage. No obvious periods of long term storage.

    There is a Deposit on this car. Pending results of a PPI.

    It was a consignment offering from a long-time customer of theirs.

    Damn that looks good! Surprised at the great condition of the headlight doors. All sparkly! Those fobs indicate an aftermarket alarm though. I missed that detail in the earlier description. bleh.

    PO was an older gentleman who kept his cars stored in controlled environment in NorCal. The car was driven <2000 miles over the past 3 years.

    Yes, but it will have received a long list of value add to it. For sure.
    2014 MB E63S, 2008 Tundra, 2006 Lotus Exige S, 1989 FJ62 Land Cruiser, 1996 Ford Bronco, and some other interesting and not so interesting vehicles.

    He should use that special Zymöl car wash and wax that contains 35% sperm whale oil. That will renew the finish to better than it was when it left the factory.

    One possible item on the long list of value-add -- ?

    Plan for $5K of deferred maintenance value-add to bring it up to a good spec.

    Chassis rubber and suspension bushings, motor and transmission mount, fuel hoses, and so forth.

    Are you actually taking the radio back to original? And you actually prefer 16” rubber?

    Restoring the head unit back to original could be difficult, unless the previous installers left all the factory wiring untouched. You won't know for sure until you get it apart...

    The gray door switches will easily add $5k value, no?
