    1992 Mercedes-Benz 500E Sedan 4-Door 5.0L *RARE!!! Hand Built by Porsche

    I am selling my beautiful and rare 500E.
    As you may know, the 500E was a joint collaboration between Mercedes and Porsche to build the fastest sedan in the world.
    The resulting 500E is a beast, and in the early 90's it was both feared and respected by the drivers it passed on the Interstates and Autobahns.
    These rare and expensive cars were out of reach for most in 1992, and today you can buy this outstanding example for pennies on the dollar!

    1 of 1502 imported 1992-95
    Porsche developed and hand built to be the fastest sedan sold in USA in 1992
    Metallic black over black leather
    18" CLS staggered replica wheels with 85%+ tires
    Lowered with H&R springs Koni adjustable front shocks
    Factory SLS rear shocks in good condition
    Slotted rotors with Porterfield RS brake pads
    All factory options
    Perfect CarFax
    283k mi on chassis Engine refreshed around 200k
    250 miles on $3,500 freshly rebuilt transmission
    Deep throaty exhaust
    Huge stack of service records
    Exterior 8/10 (typical chips from road use, presents very well)
    Interior 9/10
    Previous ownership by well known MB Enthusiast writer Reed Hitchcock.

    A few notes:
    - My 500E starts, runs, drives, stops, etc, as it should. It is a joy to drive!
    - While it has high miles, keep in mind it has been loved and maintained by MB experts, and has received an engine refresh and complete transmission rebuild
    - The car presents very well, but keep in mind that this 500E is 22 years old, so the original paint has the paint chips/marks one would expect from a car that has been driven and enjoyed
    - The factory radio is currently locked and needs the code to unlock it. I have not taken the time to dig this out of the mountain of paperwork I have for the car.
    - The rear antenna is stuck. I haven't forced it, out of fear of breaking it.
    - I have a large box of new and OEM take off parts that will convey with the car.


    Mentioned as 1 of "Ten future collectible cars" by Car & Driver, Hemmings, and several other publications.

    According to "The Illustrated Buyer's Guide to Mercedes Benz" by Frank Barrett:
    The 1992-1993 500E's and 1994 E500's have a four (4) star rating. Frank Barrett gives a nice description of the car, and mentions MB's tradition of building the world's fastest and finest sedans, like the 300 SEL 6.3 and the 450 SEL 6.9. He also mentions AMG built a Hammer model, but sold very few at $150,000 / copy. He concludes the summary of this car with the following:
    "The 500E is the prime Mercedes-Benz collector car of the early 1990's".

    Details of sale:

    Nope, she's been decomposing for 12 years or so.
    It's to the point where "excuse my dust" would be the most appropriate thing she could say.

    Random question... but while we're on the topic & since you seem to know much about it ... you're not "Ron500E" Jeremy, are you now?

    Do we, perhaps, have a celebrity in our midst?!?

    No wonder cascade doesn't like you much.... he's jealous of your excapades....

    He was just indicating he was waiting for something to happen....and it did ! After all, you have "arrived" here.

    So tell your most likely buying audience here, all about the car. Fill in the blanks from your ad.

    What's your price?

    Cheers,
    Gerry

    Gotcha. I guess I mistook that as a negative. My bad

    Obviously that ad was thrown together for buyers who aren't experts like the members of 500Eboard.

    The car is a solid car, and I would say its more of a driver than something you want to put on the lawn at Pebble Beach.
    As I said in the ad, it was owned by Reed Hitchcock who I believe has written more than a few articles about living with a 500E.
    This car was the basis for those articles.

    So after Reed's ownership, it transferred to a racing buddy of mine, who kept it in his collection and drove it occasionally.
    He owned it from 2008ish until late last year.
    I took it as partial trade for a rare equipped E46 M3 with the intention of reselling in the spring.


    The title is open and in Reed's name.
    I have receipts and service records dating back to '98

    Thanks for the welcome!

    I have set the reserve at 7500 bucks.
    I felt this was fair for a high mile, but well maintained driver.
    It has some things that I like (lowered slightly, CSL rep wheels) but I understand that a purist may object.

    Reed comes here with some regularity (his member name is "hitch02"). Yes, he has written some articles for Mercedes Enthusiast about the 500E and living with it, etc. He's a good guy who is up on these cars. That's an attractive reserve. Folks in the know don't get too hung up on mileage, as long as the car has generally been maintained along the way.

    Sold on eBay for $9300 but the Craigslist ad is still up... maybe the deal isn't completed yet:

    The auction ended at 9300.00 with several serious buyers.
    In usual ebay fashion, the "buyer" has fallen off the face of the earth, so I have relisted the car with no reserve.

    I have a mint/fully restored 1988 M6 coming to this week, so the 500 needs to move on so I have room for the new M6

    That wouldn't happen to be the M6 with 5,900 miles from Cincinnati would it?

    Those wheels are livable..the cracked and paint pealing front spoiler, the pealing paint on the claddings and the rocker panels, the cracked wood console and the chewed up shifter would be a better place to spend money on first.

    Otherwise, looks like an excellent purchase.

    Congratulations on your purchase, ep00166! Good to see your initiative, & best wishes with the car.

    Somewhat off-topic: We know what proper badge-alignment means to Bing (cheers, Mate!). I get kinda skitchy (tho' not quite to the degree of Bingdom) when I see headlight wipers all over the place. To me, it's indicative of shoddy ownership. Once again, the car is a 500E. A 500E person would never let something that simple exist more than a day once they became aware of it.

    Cockeyed headlight wipers tell me that the car is at least into its 3rd+ owner, to be well aware of what may be under the tip of the "iceberg" & to proceed accordingly.

    We know what proper badge-alignment means to Bing (cheers, Mate!). I get kinda skitchy (tho' not quite to the degree of Bingdom) when I see headlight wipers all over the place. To me, it's indicative of shoddy ownership

    Hi,
    it was a long week for me to wait to see this baby. I will pick it up tomorrow than I know more but it looks like a GPS antenna for Navi. I will let you know how the condition is.

    OK got it. Drove it down from TN and directly to the workshop fuel leak rear right side. Hose or pump I guess.
    Overall as expected and several things to work on. I check in detail when its back from the shop.

    The thing on the roof is a aftermarket Navi/Tel Antenna

    The high-pressure hose from the filter to the pipe leading up front is the common leak point back there, but yeah, check the O-rings at the pumps & filters too. Hope it's not the feed hose from the tank, those tripled in price from MB as of Jan-1, and the only aftermarket brand available is Trucktec (garbage).

    Keep us posted on how it goes!

    That hose, depending on which [tandem] pump is either 53mm or 76mm [long].

    One meter of the hose is $53 at parts.com

    I have a meter of it, but no one wants to pay anything plus shipping to make it worthwhile.

    I can't see a dealer charging mor then $10 for one. Retail is $71 per meter.

    Great to read through your purchase. I have those Evo II wheels that you might be looking for. Also have a salvage 500E with me in Chapel Hill TN, along with my '93 which I'm looking to sell soon.

    Just discovered this same problem with my car I thinks it's also leading it to a troubled cold start for me as well, if I leave the car on acc and let pressure build it kicks over.

    Hi all,
    finally have some time to give you an update on my car.

    Since it is back from the shop where the fuel line was replaced I worked on it almost every weekend.

    So far done:
    - back to original springs + rubber(car was not driveable)
    - new front strut mounts
    - Power steering hose under the reservoir changed
    - all fluids and filters changed
    - new spark plugs
    - new headliner
    - new B-pillar
    - new exhaust (Magnaflow)
    - new O2 Sensor
    - rear roller blind repaired (did not move in all the way)
    - new 2,4kOhm plug
    - new tires (just delivered today)
    - LH Module repaired (klicking Relais)
    - new oil pan seal



    Now I am quite happy with the car driving and handling (besides has some shaking at 55mph-60mph which i need to ckeck where its coming from)
    Update:New tires installed shaking is gone

    It starts right up and drives well for a car with 285kmiles. Everything works now as supposed to be.

    Next step is the exterior.

    I'll keep you posted



    BTH this Forum is just great it helped me a lot to find all the Info I needed so far! Great great job! All of you!
