    mercedes 500E 1993

    This is a beautiful Mercedes 500E hammer , everything on the vehicle runs smoothly except reversing is slow to engage. The DOT number on the tires are 2004 so it will need new tires, This vehicle was a barn find it has been sitting since 2011. It is a two owner vehicle with 150,000 miles. Absolutely no rust at all , the underneath of the vehicle is clean .The car was repainted around ten years ago but has been out of the sun since 2011.

    There are a few scratch’s on the car that will wet sand and buff off. It came with the factory telephone that is in the center console , now the center console has broken off but it just needs to be mounted back on. It does have an after market radio with amp. The A/c blows cool but does need free-on. Left rear window needs a regulator, ABS and ASR light on. Tail light bulb out.

    All in all the vehicle is a super beautiful rare find , it is a must have! It would be a quick fixer upper nut doesn't need much work but is a great little weekend project ! if you have any question Please call me or email me 915-207-8482 and my email is katherineleahey22@icloud.com

    "Beautiful" is not a word I'd use to describe that poor car.

    "Barn find" is probably accurate, along with "fixer-upper"! Update: The trunk lid gap on the driver side looks funny to me.

    Wonder what the reserve is. Could be a decent project if cheap enough.

    UGH!! is my description. The car has obviously been setting a long time. The engine compartment is a disgrace.

    The dip stick for the oil still has dust on it and does not appear to have been touched. I doubt if the oil level has even been checked. It's already been re-painted BUT from the pics you cannot tell anything. Was it an Earl Sheib (I'll paint any car for $29.95) paint job?

    Lots of questions about this car's condition. I see well beyond GV's $5K in deferred maintenance.

    If I needed another 500E (which I don't) The right price for me would have to be under $5K

    Just my $0.02

    I say if it's actually rust free and (mostly) straight, it's a good restoration candidate, if (ONLY if!) you have DIY capabilities and lots of free time.

    Probably best as a parts donator to help keep our cars on the road. No one is going to spend the time and money to “restore” this car.

    Drive it into the ground, then part it out!!!

    Good buy for 281LXM as he’s in Texas, he can vulture it and make some good bucks.

    It would be EXTREMELY difficult to MAKE this car rust in El Paso, unless you washed it adding salt to the sprayer every time.

    Should be a completely rust free "parts/drive into the ground" car.

    Super beautiful rare find, huh? Guess his (or her...) reserve is as if it actually was one...

    Hopefully the car gets the right buyer for it, like a mechanic with a body shop.

    It is sooo sad to see these cars in this, and worse, shape these days.

    Looks like the reserve is met, so the winner should get it. IF both the bidder and the seller follow through, of course...
