German Modern Classic: 1984 Mercedes-Benz 190E 2.3 W201

The W201 Mercedes-Benz C-Class was sold from 1982 through 1993 as a smaller version of the big W124 E-Class sedan. Today’s example even has a 2.3 liter 4-cylinder engine that really looks like a scaled down version of the M103 inline-6, complete with a squared off version of the oblong air filter housing. It is just a cute version of the E-Class and today’s example is in great shape for the asking price. Find this 1984 Mercedes-Benz 190E 2.3 offered for $5,500 in Greenwich, CT via craigslist. Tip from Cory.

Up for sale is my 1984 Mercedes Benz 190e. I am the second owner and have owned it for just over one year. The previous owner took
meticulous care of this car, as did I. I have all the service records from the previous owner, as well as the original window sticker. It even has the original first aid kit!

Interior is perfect 10/10
Exterior is about an 8.5/10 the paint is in great shape

With only 121,000 original miles, this car has a lot of life left in it. It runs and drives great, and everything is excellent except for the following items:

AC does not work, though it did when I bought it

Antenna does not work, but the motor works

Sunroof fell off the tracks

needs bushings

exhaust rattles during acceleration
-minimal rust on rocker panels

Everything else is great! $5,500 OBO!
Also open to trades for another car, but it needs to be drivable. See less

See a better way to drive something light blue?
