1987 Mercedes-Benz 190-Series COSWORTH 16V 2.3-16 Additional Info:

For Sale is my 1987 Mercedes 190E 2.3-16 Cosworth. If you are looking at this ad, you already know what this is. Car runs excellent and looks great. Starts at first crank even in -10C weather. See pictures and videos. Relatively low kilometers (208000 kms, 129000 miles). Engine pulls hard through the rev range without a hiccup. 16v's are notorious for running hot if not maintained correctly - This one runs cool and in the correct temp range, even when idling. Engine oil changed with LiquiMoly 5W40. SLS serviced and works great.
Future collector classic that will appreciate in value over time. Interior is in great shape, seats are heated. All seat articulations work except the driver headrest button is missing. Handles great. Cruises on the highway without drama, feels steady and solid. Crisp steering with no vagueness or wandering. Paint and Body are in great shape except for blemishes noted below
As with all older cars, there are a few issues
- Transmission shift jerky when cold/lower gears.
- A/C does not hold a charge. There is a leak in the hose near the compressor. It cools until it loses gas, so its working.
- One rust spot on roof, one on the inner left fender/strut mount, few areas underneath.
- Original radio does not work.
- Laptimer and External temp LCD is bleeding.
- 2 accidents in the history report from many years ago from if I recall correctly. One was for under $1000 or so and one is about $1900. Not sure why its not showing up in the current report.
Let me know if you have any other questions. Easy to take across the border as its older than 25 years, the process is easy, takes less than an hour. $200 deposit by paypal at end of auction, which I will refund if you end up not liking the car when you come to pick it up. All funds in US$ - Cash or Bank check. Located in Toronto, Canada, will help with shipping and customs clearance if required. Sample shipping rates are at 1200 to NJ, 1900 to FL etc.
