    FS: 1993 500E 6.0L AMG Conversion, 040 Black/Black, 94kmi, $55k (North Carolina)

    ADMIN EDIT: Price reduced to $55k, thread title updated.

    This car will be familiar to some of you. More on that below. Up for sale is my 1993 500E in 040 Black.

    This car has had a significant amount of work done to it for both upgrades and maintenance. Last year Jono completed the heart transplant with a NOS AMG 6.0L motor which was found in Germany and was documented for sale on this site. Dave sold me an ECU he had for the motor, and the process was underway. Jono can probably tell anyone in more detail what was done to the vehicle and what condition specific items are in, but I will try to give a comprehensive list below.

    As you can see through the history on this site, I originally purchased this vehicle, sold it to another board member local to me, and then purchased it back almost 2 years ago. Along the way, the car has seen numerous maintenance and parts upgrades, resulting in where it is now. In the last 12 months, I have only driven the car a handful of times. I love it when I drive it, but it just doesn't get enough use for me to justify keeping it.

    I have always hated the "What's it worth?" threads, which often are just ways to bypass the required price listing rules on forums, so I won't break that etiquette here. That being said, I really don't know how to value this car, so I'm taking a stab at it based on what I've seen some other cars sell for, and what I have into this one. I understand that at the end of the day, anything is only worth what someone else is willing to pay for it, and what the seller is willing to sell it for.

    The biggest item is obviously the NOS AMG motor. But when the motor was swapped, we also did a lot of "while you're in there" work, which includes:
    RDM Tech Adjustable Camber Towers (front strut mounts)
    AMG OZ 3 Piece Replica Rheels purchased from Thore, a member on this site.
    - 8.5 x 17 et 18 front
    - 10.0 x 17 et 17 rear
    Ceramic Coated Manifolds
    New Coolant Reservoir
    Pre Facelift Hood
    Pre Facelift Grille
    New Engine Mounts
    New Hood Pad
    AMG Shift Knob
    New Power Steering Hoses and Insulation
    Repaint Lower Cladding along with paint correction throughout body
    Speedometer Cleaning
    Rear Bumper Block Off Plates
    New SLS Valve
    Powder Coated rear calipers
    New Front Fender Well Panel
    New Steering Damper, Drag Link, and Tie Rod
    New Strut Bump Stops
    New Radiator Hoses
    New Valve Cover Gaskets
    New Metal Oiler Tubes
    New Rear LCA Bushings
    New Intake Tubes

    In addition, the following was previously done:
    Replace Upper and Lower Wiring Harnesses
    Complete New Stereo with all new wiring, and speakers
    For reference, see this thread: https://www.500eboard.com/forums/showthread.php?t=6734

    The car is available next week for PPI's, should someone be interested. The garage it is in is having a new concrete driveway poured tomorrow.

    I'm sure I am forgetting things, so please let me know your questions and I will do my best to answer them. Admins, feel free to merge threads if this is improper as a new listing.

    Beautiful car, last time I visited Jono he had that engine sitting up on a stand, pretty sure he'd just finished the upgrade and it was ready to drop in. Not sure I'd have the resolve to sell it until I added +1 or 2 to the first odometer digit.

    FWIW, even though we never Really got to get into it because the engine was still Fresh the bolstered/added torque on the bottom end was addictive. I'd be pretty willing to bet that this was one of the LAST NOS E60 engines in the world.

    Hell of a car, sorry to see you're moving her along!

    A long time ago, a bunch of crate motors ended up on Germany EBay, including a few 2.3l 16valve motors for 2k and the the E60 motor. If I remember correctly, the 6.0l was sold for 12k.

    The E60 motor I was going to buy sold for 12,000 us dollars without shipping or taxes. The 16 valve motors sold for 2,000 us dollars each. One guy here in the US bought both 16 valve motors and tried flipping the second for a huge profit. In hindsight, I should of just bought all of them.

    If I had to guess, the E60 motor I am talking about is the one you picked up, guy doubled his investment.

    As a side note, at the time these motors sold, the euro was worth far less than the US dollar, I don't remember in Euro's exactly what these sold for, I just remember the US dollar conversion amount. I might still have the EBay pictures as well, will have to look for them.

    Yes... and a drop-in AMG long block... all the parts on it were NEW. New alternator. New tandem pump. New water pump. New ETA / actuator.

    $$$$$

    What happened to the wood/leather steering wheel and those awesome Recaro C seats?

    still pop in here every now and then to see what's happening, and now I wish I didn't because I really want to buy this...

    For fellas with larger/broad shoulders the recaros aren't very comfortable.

    We had a beautiful set of stock seats that we installed.

    Not sure about the steering wheel
