W124 E-Class: 1988 Mercedes-Benz 300E

I know what you are thinking. You are thinking that $8k is a lot of money to spend on an aging Mercedes-Benz sedan…and that you think perhaps you want a cheap project version of the same car. Mmmm. That is an interesting idea, but I can tell you (from personal experience) that you are going to need to spend some time fiddling with the fuel injector seals, because the Bosch CIS (continuous injection system) used on the M103 inline-6 is an interesting piece of technology that bridges the gap between the ancient fuel injection systems of the 70s and the modern common rail systems that became standard in 1990s. So you could get a derelict 300E and spend thousands bringing it back to life, or you could just drop some cash on this beauty. Find this 1988 Mercedes-Benz 300E offered for $8000 in Oceanside, NY via ebay.
