1990 Mercedes Benz 300 SE
This immaculate W126 Mercedes 300SE has been my trusty steed for nearly three years, driven sparingly and only in favorable weather conditions. Smoke silver with parchment highlights the design like no other color scheme. Lovely custom pinstriping. Rare short wheelbase and lively 3-litre six cylinder assures true sports sedan performance and handling. Later MB Becker radio with iPod adapter (original Becker unit included). Over $4,000 spent recent work including new Michelin radials, new radiator and water pump, front brakes, exhaust and more. Books and tools. Over $4,000 spent on service and maintenance including new radiator and water pump, front brakes, new Michelins, recharged A/C, new exhaust (cat back), and much more. This Mercedes is a rare Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) vehicle, or Encore, as it was termed back in the 90s. Encore was a very discerning program and very few cars could pass the initial inspection for consideration. This vehicle was either leased or traded in by the original owner to an MB dealership. After an arduous assessment, the dealer placed the car for resale under Encore and subsequently dealer-serviced under warranty for nearly six years. The heralded W126 Mercedes is a landmark design by noted stylist Bruno Sacco and still looks fresh today. They are equally known for their bank-vault build quality, fabulous utility and great road manners. For half the price of a new Subaru, here's a dead reliable Euro sports sedan in immaculate condition and fabulors colors that you won't see in every parking lot! Walk-around video available.
