1992 Mercedes-Benz 300-Series CE

This car has been restored to be an enjoyable and completely reliable collector car (or use as a daily driver!). There are 194k miles on the completely rust-free Southern California body, 75k on the engine and transmission and the balance of the new parts are listed below. Unlike many other W124 coupes, this car has been completely refreshed with a combination of all new parts and a compression tested, low mileage, engine and transmission. This car does have ASR. Restoration took place over a 2.5 year period and the car was originally in one family its entire life. I'm open to reasonable offers as it's time to move on to the next project.
Listed here is the build sheet and I can offer photo documentation of all repairs.
