1979 280SE Euro Import 86K Miles $6000

Location: Joliet, IL 60433

Good: Except AC (needs r-12 charge and new drier + oil) EVERYTHING works and can be driven and there is no sag in the front seats. Crank windows all work, car drives like a true w116. Fuel system total restored, with pristine fuel tank. Complete package. Locks have all been replaced with 3 Mater Keys and 1 Valet key.

-Original Becker Mexico Cassette (from 1980 450SEL USA) has been fully restored and internally upgraded. The cassette door springs were rusted out so the door was hot glued in place (from inside) as the cassette player is non-functional, and there is 1 crack on the glass from the right knob going bottom right. The radio has modern pre-amp outputs and an auxiliary input added to the back leaving the face plate intact. See photos here:



-Valve steam seals blown, and head gasket possibly needs replaced. After seals blew stuck in traffic on the highway, car temperature spiked to 115c. Immediately cranked the heat to full blast and brought it down with 10-15 minuets to 100c and drove 45mins home. Oil leaks through valve cover breather hose and puddle of oil on the ground and oil in air filter. Vehicle holds at 80c on 40 degree day. Car has low torque starting from zero. Cooling system sealer would likely fix issue.

-The radiator should be flushed. ($200)

-The WUR needs to be cleaned or rebuilt again. Became clogged with fuel varnish after rebuilding entire fuel system. I forgot to clean out the fuel dampener. Fuel Distributor and Injectors should also be checked for blockage (although vehicle ran fine up to 85/90mph). Needs assistance starting by lightly pressing down on the air flow meter plate. ($360 rebuild shipped) You can see a very small amount to varnish build up https://mega.nz/#F!xEc2UYyS!zCgeapCdmAOrZwvQi_C66g?sYtUyCxS I highly recommend CIS Flowtech based out of Fairhop, AL http://www.cisflowtech.com/ They are the best professionals when it comes to these mechanical injections systems. I did clean out the varnish, but it has plugged up the internals of the WUR.

- No speakers in the vehicle, they were dry rotted when I purchased the vehicle, therefore removed.

- Steering column creaks when cold, goes away when warmed up (5 min) spare included in trunk

-Oil Sump screen is cracked new part included.
