I am offering my 85 mercedes up for sale on www.EBAY.com. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=4597712686&rd=1&sspagename=STRK:MESE:IT&rd=1
I Love this car. It is a Biodeisel car that can run on vegetable oil or biodeisel or regular deisel!!! It has a 2nd, seperate tank in the trunk and a solonoid switch under the dash.
I recently got a quote on fixing the biggest problem that the car has: broken front right sway bar and brackets $1150 was the quote from Romano Mercedes. OMG (parts and 9 hrs labor to shove the thing in)
Here's what else is wrong with the car:
-Very slow oil leak (not sure from where)
-Very slow coolant leak (not sure from where)
-electric/ignition switch problem that is disrupting starting and windows and
flashers, etc. (windows are back up now...) intermittant, comes on and off
whenever it wants, mostly when the car is leaning forward down a hill (Comes with replacement part that we bought on ebay, it's just that we had to take the dash off and we never got to it, we would just tap and jiggle till the dash lit up.)
-hood bent, does not latch right now, needs a bunjy cord to help
-car does not shut off with key, need to unbunjee hood and press stop
-odometer is broken, 300,000 plus miles
-smells little like perfume inside (although with the windows down all
summer, that has helped)
-possible transmissions issue (but it just might be an incorrect
transmissions fluid level)
-the coolant level needs to be checked as I haven't done it yet
Good things about the car:
-It was totally drivable, under 30 mph and no major bumps before the ignition problem, so minor work to get it up and running again
-It has a working alternate 12 gal tank in the trunk, perfect for
pre-filtered waste veg oil or biodeisel
-We bought a new ignitions switch for it, have to remove dash to
install... Might solve all electrical and switch problems .. dash removal
and lack of $ is why I never got to it.
-It comes with the regular tires on it and two sets of snow tires.
-Two spare radios one is a cd player
-Extra set of struts
-Roomy, luxury ride. Big trunk. Great for a late night dumpstering stroll
or your family of pugs.
-It has the original book with it.
-It's Navy blue
-You can say you drive a bleepin' Mercedes
-It looks good in the snow
Pick up would be syracuse.
