    C/L hoopties

    I have a horrible addiction to trolling craiglist for cars that I:

    1) don’t need
    2) don’t have time for
    3) did I mention ‘don’t need’?

    One side benefit of this problem is running across ‘cherry’ ads which you really couldn’t make up if you tried. Half laughable, half tear jerkingly sad when you think about what these machines looked like sitting new in the MB lots, or how proud their first owner was upon delivery.

    Anyhoo, I thought I would start a thread with links to ads that either gave me a chuckle, made me cry, or perhaps both.

    Number 1, its a ‘must read’:

    https://modesto.craigslist.org/cto/d...624334504.html


    1995 MERCEDES S500 - $3500 (Riverbank)

    VIN = WDBGA51E7SA249085

    PRESENTED FOR SALE- 1995 MERCEDES S500. WHEN THIS MERCEDES WAS NEW, IT WAS ORDERED LOADED WITH THE BEST OF EVERYTHING, AND COST $120,000.00+. IT HAS THE UPGRADED DUEL OVERHEAD CAM ENGINE ($30,000.00 UPGRADE), AND SHATTER & BULLET PROOF FACTORY GLASS.

    IT IS THE BEST RIDING CAR YOU WILL EVER DRIVE OR RIDE IN. THIS MERCEDES RUNS AND LOOKS SUPERB, IT IS *85% RESTORED*. THIS IS A CAR THAT WOULD BE BEST SOLD TO AN INDIVIDUAL THAT HAS "VISION". ...AND WITH THAT VISION AND A FEW MORE BUCKS AND A LITTLE MORE TIME, THIS MERCEDES COULD BE *MORE* STUNNING AND HAVE THE ***CLASSIC MERCEDES LOOK OF CLASS***, AND BE PERFECT MECHANICALLY.... SO, WITH MOST OF THE HARD STUFF DONE, IT WON'T, IN REALITY, TAKE MUCH MORE TO FINISH THIS. ...AND YOU WON'T LOOSE ANY MONEY DOING IT EITHER, GUARANTEED.

    THINGS THAT NEED TO BE DONE ARE...LIKE HAVING THE ALLOY'S CHROME PLATED (KNOW WHERE TO HAVE THEM DONE, ALL 4 FOR $600.00), CHROME FENDER SKIRTS, $150.00 AND NEW TIRES......THIS ALONE WILL TRANSFORM THIS CAR FROM REALLY NICE, TO OVER-THE-TOP, SUPERBLY BEAUTIFUL!!! I'VE "RESTORED" 8 MERCEDES IN THE PAST AND CAN HELP THE NEW OWNER WITH *EVERYTHING* THAT NEEDS TO BE DONE...WHERE TO HAVE THE WORK DONE...FOR THE BEST PRICE, AND BEST QUALITY WORK, AND FOR HOW MUCH. ...AGAIN, THIS IS A CAR THAT COST $120,000.00 NEW......AND YOU CAN HAVE *THE LOOK* FOR PENNIES ON THE DOLLAR. CHANGES IN LIFE COME AND GO SO WON'T BE ABLE TO FINISH THIS CAR MYSELF, BUT PRESENTS A REAL OPPORTUNITY FOR SOMEONE, AGAIN, WITH VISION, AND A DESIRE TO OWN A CLASS ACT VEHICLE FOR A VERY LOW PRICE. IF YOU'VE EVER OWNED OR DRIVEN A MERCEDES, THEN YOU KNOW WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT- AS THIS CAR DEMANDS RESPECT AND SOMETIMES AWE FROM THOSE OTHERS ON THE ROAD WITH YOU. ---

    *ALL NEW PARTS & WORK INCLUDE*; NEW "600SEL" TRUNK EMBLEMS, $75.00, NEW PAINT, $3000.00 (OUTSIDE PAINT IS THE SAME ORIGINAL COLOR, SO ALL INSIDE COLOR- LIKE DOOR JAMS AND INSIDE EVERYWHERE ARE THE SAME COLOR ORIGINAL AS FROM THE FACTORY)..., USED BUT LIKE NEW 2012 ORIGINAL *FACTORY* ALLOY WHEELS (THESE ARE OVER $2,500.00 NEW) NEW FRONT END TIE RODS, $700.00, 2 NEW CADILLECTIC CONVERTERS, $450.00, NEW ROTORS AND MERCEDES FACTORY MADE BRAKE PADS, $400.00, NEW CD STEREO WITH BLUETOOTH UTILIZING FACTORY INSTALLED AND ORIGINAL BOSE SPEAKERS, $400.00, NEW, REBUILT AIR CONDITIONER COMPRESSOR, $350.00, NEW BATTERY, $275.00, NEW SPARK PLUG WIRES, $375.00, NEW TOP-OF-THE-LINE FACTORY RECOMMENDED SPARK PLUGS (AUTOLITE PIRIDIUM EXTREME PEFORMANCE), $ 250.00, NEW VACCUM LINES FOR EMISSIONS, $200.00.

    Definitely a classic. I wasn’t aware that 140s had bulletproof glass. We E500E owners are peons for not having the bulletproof glass. He did some great upgrades to that car.

    The W140 "Bullet Proof Glass" assumption seems to be akin to the "None Porsche built late E500's" sentiment

    Ask for a photo of the $30k upgraded DOHC motor. Never know when there might be a RENNtech 6L lurking under the hood!

    Re: C/L hoopties

    My maths indicate over $5k invested recently... why sell it for less? Maybe the price was $5300, not $3500.

    Re: C/L hoopties

    I personally think the recommendation of chrome to the wheels (and a great shop to do it at -steal of the century there...), plus the chrome fender flares pushed it right over the top for me.

    Any guesses on how far up I-5 it would make it? Last time I checked it was about 800 miles to Seattle.

    It's an SClass. If it runs at all, with fresh fuel, air, spark and oil it'll drive cross country.

    At this point, I think you are obligated to find out, and report back here. ROAD TRIP!

    I saw that 600SEL badge and I think literally rolled my eyes in disgust. Seller must be a wannabe pimp.

    Gsxr invited me to this trollicious and debaucherous thread. LoL

    -methdesto LoL, actually Riverbank can be decent and same with Modesto.

    -if you break down early in your journey on your way to Seattle in Stockton, you can 1) see me and a few 500Es, and 2) try out the said “bullet-proof glass” (I’ll tell you which streets to drive down), and 3) try some great food.

    Let me know

    Ok.. ok... this is not an MB, and not a C/L ad, but the content and delivery fits the intention of this thread.

    You can almost hear the wheels turning... #facepalm

    PS... watch out for the geese.

    https://bend.craigslist.org/cto/d/19...717199674.html

    1995 Mercedes Benz e320 Wagon lowered - $950

    Im helping my friend sell his 95 slammed Mercedes wagon. This thing is low. Like nasty low. You might have seen it around Bend, kind of hard to miss. Runs and drives well, has the inline 6 motor with an aftermarket exhaust and cold air intake. She pulls strong and sounds awesome doing it. Unfortunately got clipped in the front and could use a new fender but still drives good. Has new low profile thin tires. Car needs tags. Asking $950 or best offer. We need it gone and will consider payments with enough down. Dont be afraid to make an offer. Thank you

    C/L hoopties

    Today’s apparently a good C/L day...

    I really can’t tell what this is/was:

    https://sfbay.craigslist.org/pen/cto...676585101.html

    MERCEDES BENZ C CLASS ( AMG ) RUNS WELL DVD - $1500 (redwood city)

    title status: salvage

    I'm selling my 1994 Mercedes Benz C Class, which is in excellent running condition and good looking condition. I just have one too many cars and I just don't drive this one enough to validate keeping it. It's ready for its new owner with pink slip on my name, smog certificate in hand and registered until February 2019, which means all you'd be paying are transfer fees when registering it.

    It is in excellent running condition!

    * 1994 Mercedes Benz C220
    * 4 Cylinder gas engine
    * 126K Miles
    * Automatic Transmission-fully serviced
    * Clean interior with no rips or tears on seats or carpet
    * Sliding Sunroof
    * Air Conditioning
    * Power Windows
    * Power Door Locks
    * Cruise Control
    * Power Steering
    * Tilt Wheel
    * AM/FM/CD/DVD with separate DVD screens for the rear passengers
    * Dual Front air bags
    * Smog Certificate in Hand
    * Title in hand
    * Registration good till February 2019

    This is a great running car which is good on gas and is running great. It comes with a smog check and title so it's ready to be registered under your name. Always fully serviced. It has AMG logos everywhere, yet this is NOT a true AMG. Like any used car, it could use a hand replacing the headliner as it's falling apart, the driver's side mirror is being held with tape and the passenger corner marker glass is missing. Other than that, it's pretty much in great running condition. You're more than welcome to have it inspected by your favorite shop or bring your mechanic along. If interested, please call, text or email any time at (650)274-9635.

    Low miles (102,000)
    First and longest owner has been a grandfather took adult care of the car. Very reliable. I have had the car for about 2 years now, No leaks what so ever, bring your mechanic. Oil has been changed every 3 k miles. New tires, new brakes, new battery, new fuel pump. The reason I need to sell the car is that I need to buy a year car that uber will accept.

    This has to count for something! I actually tried to connect with this guy several times about a year ago and he kept flaking on me. He had responded to a WTB ad I posted with a single photo and lots of claims on the perfection of his car. Glad I didn’t waste my time!

    RARE ONE OWNER 1993 MERCEDES BENZ 300CE COUPE BEYOND BEAUTIFUL! RARE RARE CAR! - $1500

    16
    1993 mercedes Benz 300ce
    fuel: gas
    title status: clean
    transmission: automatic
    rare opportunity to own this rare car! I planned to make it into sort of a hotrod but I have to move and being realistic this car isn't gonna get built in the next 15 days. I bought the Benz from the original owner. it's beautiful inside and out in everyway. you don't find them like this anymore. triple black, paints very nice and shines like new. body is 100% absolutely flawless aside from 1 scratch about 1 inch long on the bottom plastic by rear wheel. interior is excellent black leather. everything works. even has original unopened first aid kit from mercedes. has nice AMG wheels from a 2010 AMG e55 which look superb on the coupe. it doesn't currently run because I planned to swap either a chevy ls v8 into it or a toyota 2jz Motor and trans. the motors in it, took the head off to measure engine bay. the rest of the motor in there and so is the transmission. these cars sell for upwards of $8k up up and running so imagine it with a 400hp chevy ls.. I planned to keep this car for ever but life happens i guess. this is the last year of this body style

    C/L hoopties

    Just a ‘little’ damage...

    1994 MERCEDES SL500 - $4000 (Olympia)

    1994 Mercedes SL500. Drivable. Runs great. 96,000 miles. I drove it daily. Comes with hard top. Has new windshield, new tires and wheels. Recent tune up. I got into a little accident last week (Oct 9th) which dented in the left front headlight, etc. I don't have time to fix it or part it out. Would be a great project for someone who has time to either fix it or part it out. Email me with your phone number and I will call you right back.

    I think the "etc." is where the problem is.

    Not bad, I'm wondering how much work it would be to convert one of these to a Chevy motor

    Bah! That "etc" will buff right out. Might go through a few buffers though.

    Rare 1984 Mercedes Benz 500 SEC (European Model) - $4000 (Miramar)

    This a very rare vehicle imported from Germany for US sale. It is US compliant and just needs a little TLC. It runs great and has custom AMG rims. I am leaving town and can not take it with me. The low retail value of this vehicle is $7,400.00. Click this link for the value range of this car. https://www.nadaguides.com/Cars/1984...r-Coupe/Values

    The car is sitting in storage in Mira Mar and if you would like to see it I can arrange an appointment. I am flexible on the price because I have to sale it beforeI leave but I have dropped 2k off the low value to get it moved quickly. Please contact me for any questions.

    Um. I think this is Maverick's car. No... Wait...This is the car Goose gave to Maverick in his will. Maverick must be getting deployed to somewhere in the Indian Ocean again.
