this car is being sold on the basis that it will need checking over to get back on the road again however it is not a basket case and is excellent where it counts !

it starts and drives but is not road legal
so will need recovering

pre facelift 190es are becoming highly sought after and values are now rising due to there rarity !
so now is the time to buy a special examples like this one !
has a great provenance
this particular car has the legendary bullit proof 122 bhp 4 cylinder 2.0 injection engine which have regularly been know to cover over a million miles and arguably one of the best engines mercedes ever made !
mercedes did make a 190 2.0 non injection carburettor model which were never as desirable or sought after as the fuel injected versions. Furthermore they were sluggish and unresponsive , not as economical and never ran as sweetly or as reliably as its injected counterpart
this car needs cosmetic work but is a perfect basis to make into one of the best cars left !
its not a restoration project and could be motd then used and enjoyed as it is !!!!
the underneath is absolutely rock solid and looks like it has never been welded nor apparently needing any !!
( please study the 145 additional pictures in my photo bucket link )

when i purchased the car back in 2012 i was advised that it would need a good service as it had started idling on three cylinders !
i decided to get the car serviced only to be advised that the reason the car was running on three cylinders was due to a burnt exhaust valve that needing replacing
so as a result the car had a complete top end overhaul which had also included a new timing chain
the cylinder head was stripped completely and rebuild to include
4 x new oem exhaust valves
4 x new oem inlet valves
new oem cylinder head bolt set
4 new ngk spark plugs
new oem timing chain
new oem timing chain sproket
new oem head gasket
new oem vlave stem seals
new cam cover gasket
at the same time the engine sump was removed together with the oil lift pump and they were thoroughly cleaned before being re installed !
i spend over £2000 having this work carried out as i wanted to make the car perfect !!
so the engine has been fully overhauled and will just need to be checked over and serviced by the new owner
the gearbox changes smoothly as it should and i had intended on replacing the gearbox oil as part of the recommissioning !
there is no noise from the rear differential !
25/01/2003 @ 95178 miles
31/01/2006 @ 101862 miles
02/11/2007 @ 102386 miles
31/10/2008 @ 111510 miles
sorned since expiry of last mot in 2008
so the car had been unused and garaged since the mot ran out in 2008 ! although i have periodically started and run up to temperature to keep everything moving
this unique mercedes comes with the following
the original clear plastic document wallet
the original fully stamped service book to include the all important factory data card in the rear cover
the original 190e owners manual
the 190e enclosure to owners manual
mercedes uk dealer sales /service directory
mercedes europa dealer directory
first aid and safety at the roadside
the original warranty card
the original sales brochure
old tax discs
experian/ car check confirming clear on all registers
it appears it has never needed welding before nor does it need any structural work
( i was told when i purchased the car by the previous owner that he had a bodyshop prepare the areas with primer to prevent any additional corrosion prior to being painted )
the interior is in excellent condition
its hard to believe the interior is 35 years old !
the headlining is perfect and needs no more than a gentle clean
the dash is excellent with only a small hairline crack
( see pic) which could be easily rectified with an invisible dash repair
the seats are excellent and again need nothing more than a gentle clean !
the boot area is exceptional as this car was clearly loved and cherished from new
the under floor boot compartment is like new
the spare wheel carrying compartment is rock solid and in excellent condition ( see pics)
the carpets are simply superb and need no more than a hoover as they have been covered from new by several over mats
a clean would bring the interior up like new
the front interior door cards are perfect but the rears will need replacing ( again these appear for sale secondhand )
the rear parcel shelf is perfect still having the factory rear speaker grills and original first aide kit
all the glass look original including the front screen which has slightly delaminated on the corners
i dont think it would be possible to find a 35 year old mercedes 190 with a better interior ! its so clear its been cherished !
its fundamentally a really superb car where it needs to be and deserves someone to dedicate time and money to bring it back to its former glory and have one of the best launch specification mercedes 190es on todays market !
a great investment car !!
the bodywork is rock solid and rot free and exceptional where it counts
the paintwork is 35 years old and this is a car that was looked after but used and enjoyed
the overall appearance is still that of a tidy presentable mercedes
however over 35 years the cars has picked up marks, chips and nicks on all panels so my intention was to indulge the car to a full professional respray and end up with one of the finest very early 190es
both bumper are very good with only the bumper insert suffering from the usual london scuffs and bruises ( again i was going to replace these )
the headlights are originals and in excellent condition
all 4 doors are good ( inside the door bottoms are still good)
the front wings are original and don,t need replacing
in fact the car needs no replacement panels
the boot is in excellent condition and free from rust inside and out !
all of the indicator / light units are in excellent condition and appear free from cracks and damage
the underneath / chassis of the car is in exceptional condition and at most would need no more than a good clean !
( please study the pictures )
my intention was to sort out the cosmetic paint issues and then have the car professionally repainted leaving me with possibly the best 1984 190e on uk roads !!
there cant be many 1984 cars with the levels of optional equipment this car has !
1st serious buyer who appreciates what this car is and the potential it has will buy it
one for the serious mercedes collector !
please don,t bother coming to look at the car just to pick it to pieces as you will be just wasting your time !
just study the pictures as ive hidden nothing !!!!
its a very rare and special heritage 190e mercedes !
an absolute investment bargain !
NO OFFERS !!!
