1992 Mercedes-Benz 500-Series 500e

I am selling a 1992 Mercedes 500e project car. I've had this for about ten years and the wife says I have too many projects so it has to go. Here is the history on the car as I know it. Mileage is 315K. At some point the timing chain or tensioner went bad and the timing chain became derailed rendering the engine inoperable. Vehicle was brought to a dealership in Chicago and was parked for awhile and I ended up buying it. The car was then placed in my garage and has sat ever since. Bodywise everything is there. There is a dent on the right front door that can be seen in the pictures. Original paint, no sign of any collision damage. Interiorcan use a good cleaningbut the seats and other 500E specific bits are in good shape.

Also when I first picked up the car I ended up buying atakeout motor from Turner Motorsports that they had gotten for a project. This motor was from a different 500E that was wrecked and has < 20K on it. I remember doing a carfax on the engine and I believe that the actual mileage was 16,000 and change. Car was hit in the back so no damage to the motor. I also bought the transmission and rear axle differential as well so I have basically all new running gear for the car. This is INCLUDED in the auction. So you are bidding on the carplus a complete set of running gear to get it operational again. I have additional pictures so please email me and I can send you additional information.
