Description:

1986 Mercedes-Benz 190-Series

From the Thick texture steering wheel grip, to the flourescent orange cluster gauges, while comforted by firm horsehair padded power seats, to the finely combed palomino carpet fibers, complemented by 587 Cabernet Red Metallic exterior paint and showroom quality light alloy rims, This is the Mercedes-Benz 190e 2.3 you have been waiting to add to your collection.
I do not just purchase these vehicles, to "make a quick buck". It is my hobby and I take pride in making sure you are getting a TOP quality automobile restored to standards no less than what Mercedes-Benz would ensure.
This vehicle has just been professionally detailed by Mercedes-Benz Newport Beach Fletcher Jones Motorcars. In a nutshell you are purchasing a Mercedes-Benz DETAILED and RESTORED mechanically to the standards of Mercedes-Benz Certified Pre-Owned vehicles. This 190e is California Smogged, and registration is valid through November 2016. You will receive this vehicle exactly as you see photographed vehicle was put back under it's cover immediately after photo-shoot.
Welcome to my listing. Please allow me to introduce myself, I am a Mercedes Benz enthusiast and have owned 11 w126, w124, and w201 in the past 2 years. I have quite the knowledge pertaining to Mercedes-Benz of this vintage. After owning all the models I have, this is the best, most astounding showroom model. I would compare driving this 190e to that of a certified pre owned 2013 c250 yet, with the build QUALITY of the 1980s Mercedes Benz.
HISTORY OF THE VEHICLE: This vehicle was purchased New from AUTOHAUS BRUGGAR IN REDWOOD CITY CA, by an older navy couple in 1986. This was the wife's car, her name, Virginia hence "JINNY1" the vehicles license plates. Left to sit in the garage accumulating a mere 23,000 miles in 30 years. And yes the odometer is true and correct.*See attached CARFAX* Most cars purchased new in 2014, and 2015 have already much more than 23,000 miles. This vehicle comes with no direct service records, although a hand written record of services until 1997. Also included are all Mercedes-Benz books, new old stock unused Continental spare tire, as well as unused Mercedes-Benz toolkit with factory jack. This 190e's driver side rear quarter panel, both front fenders, and hood were repainted by "cooks auto body" in 1992 after a house paint sprayer accidentally masked those sections of the vehicle. Top quality paint match using factory Mercedes-Benz color 587 Cabernet Red Metallic. The only damage on the vehicle is:1. Ding on hood (presumably from the hood being closed on a tool)2. Passenger side rear quarter panel (on gas tank side) has been scuffed up against something and there is a minor dent3. 1 very tiny ding underneath driver's side mirror.4. Cluster clock does not function**No other exterior damage to disclose**
You may be able to find another Mercedes 190e with fewer miles elsewhere, but not with the meticulous restoration this gem has just gone through. I have replaced EVERY commonly known faulty part on this vehicle. It is completely serviced and ready to be put away back into a garage or collection much to where it belongs.

This vehicle is just as it came front Mercedes Benz Redwood City AUTOHAUS BRUGGAR in 1986. There are 5 things that qualify a Mercedes Benz in my eyes worthy of restoration and purchase. The five things are;#1 Original Mercedes Benz factory paint job:(with the exception of a RODOT panel or two)#2 Original Mercedes Benz Catalytic converter:(ensures a lifelong well maintained vehicle)#3 Original Mercedes Benz Sigla/Sekurit Windshield:(shows a vehicle not abused by careless highway driving)#4 Original California Golden-Sun license plates, or alphanumerical "printed" California license plates, or classic Blue and yellow California license plates:(ensure a rust free example of a California Benz rather than a rust bucket)#5 Original Becker Radio:(As the old saying goes, "If it is not broken, then why fix it" Well, not only is the original Becker Grand Prix radio easy on the eyes and period correct, if the Previous owner PAYED their own money for someone to butcher factory wiring harnesses on the vehicle for an atrocious blinking, beeping, complicated, plastic, light parade, just imagine the short cuts done under the hood!)Now this Mercedes-Benz has met all these standards and more!
