Desert Survivor being sold by a very legit Ebay seller
If you have any concerns about our vehicle, please ask or dont
bid on it. Dont wait till after you win and then make up stuff on
wondering if we are real or not.
FEEDBACK !!! if you cant take 10 min to read thru our feedback
on the cars we have sold here over the last 10 yrs, then you also
shouldnt be bidding on our auctions. Ebay offers our Feedback rating
for a reason,... try trusting it.
this is a totally rust free AZ survivor SL thats been a driver for
most of its life. It did sit for a few yrs in the mid 2000s but about a yr ago
Its been owned by a local Mercedes repair shop for the last 20+ yrs and
was going to be restored after retiring. But plans had changed.
Shows 36k on the odometer, not sure if its rolled over to be honest.
Its been off the road alot for the last 25 yrs, so not sure
IF YOU NEED HELP SHIPPING over the pond back to its home country, we
can surely help get it to one of the docks for a fair price for you.

who use ebay arent smart enough to understand the rules.
So if you have under 10 feedbacks, Ill be emailing you if you bid to
make sure you are legit, if we do please reply or we will cancel your bid.
Up for Auction: LOW FAIR RESERVE !!!
These cars are getting harder to find esp in this condition
that are still affordable to most buyers.

DRIVETRAIN: the motor the original the best we can tell, the better 3.5
as well. The auto trans was also rebuilt less then 20k miles ago too.
The engine starts fine all the time with a turn of the key. When the suspension
airs up, you are ready to roll. No smoke or weird noises. There is a bushing / rod
from the auto selector for the trans that should be replaced (keeps popping off)
but we have it siliconed on for now till the part can be replaced. Still very correct
and complete under the hood at least and making the restoration easier.

INTERIOR: seats and alot of the interior is pretty beat up from the Az sun
All repairable of course, but it looks at least complete. Check out all the pics
All the PW work too. On the dr side rear door 1/4 window, youll notice the glass
has been replaced with a section of plastic. Good news is we have the correct pcs
of glass for that area. Just not had it installed yet, but it comes with the car.
All the dash and interior lights seem to work too. AC blows cool, but not cold.
Probably the worst part of the car, but in the big scheme of things, not all that
bad compared to some out there that have been neglected.

EXTERIOR: body is in pretty good shape overall from front to back.
THE ROOF IS NOT THAT BAD !! lots of peeling paint and surface rust at
The chrome on the bumper and trim is in very nice shape as well.
All the gaps etc look very nice for a car this age. Only place I saw any
bubbles was PS rear door along the side trim a few bubbles have started.
The floors, rockers etc are super clean.
Its had at least 1 repaint or maybe partial sometime in its life, but it
was done well (no overspray issues etc.) Car looks to like never have been
in an accidents.
CURRENT paint condition, the roof is toasted, surface rust only with lots of peeling.
Side and hood area actually faded some, but may be able to wetsand and buff it back.
Trunk is pretty checked and faded too. No cream puff, but no rot either.

The chrome and stainless are in really nice shape, no pitting of course.
Being an AZ car, you wont find any rot on this car like east coast cars, even surface
rust is minimal. Ive lived in Az for over 25 yrs, we have the best cars for project
and restorations in the country !
Tucson is a desert climate with little to no rain and less humidity.

Im probably forgetting some stuff, so if you have any questions email me for a prompt
reply !

SUSPENSION:basically all stock with the factory air suspension, which is all
there and if you let the car sit and idle for about 10 min it does rise up finally.
But I can hear a small leak under the hood, and once you park the car it settles
to like you see in the pics after about an hour.
It may make it a little hard to ship, but we can figure that part out if the
car sells. Rest of the suspension looks good and un damaged.
Also because the air suspension wont stay up for long, Ill try to chock
up the suspension with something to bring the car up a few inches for
making transport easier. I dont have the original spacers, but I can make something
work for just to move it around.

Check out ALL the pics below ----->

it may take a full minute for them all to load ifyou have a
slow connection, so be patient AND looks for the extra scroll
bar on the right side.
Az gets maybe 12" a yr of rain and Az very dry climate.
more infoAFTER the pics etc. There are 100 large pics.

There you have it, probably The BEST represented Benz's on Ebay.

Shows you all the good as well as any bad, hope you appreciate them.
We put a lot of time and effort in marketing our cars and it shows.
People wait months for a car this solid to come up for sale
and even if you have to pay shipping to your area, it still beats
paying a body shop to hopefully fix a rusty car for weeks on end.
Having as much as the original steel on a restored car these days
speaks volumes.
People are flipping cars all the time when most of the jobs are
fast, for a quick buck and quality suffers. No worries here, and
we post legit large pics to prove it.

Email us with ANY questions before you bid please
Our Impeccable FEEDBACK speaks for itself. We show you as
much feasibly possible via pics.
Dont let auctions withlittle to no pics try to fool you.
If they cant take the time to take pics of areas under the car they
are selling, maybe its not the best car to buy long distance.
With other auctions, you really dont know what to expect
until you take the car apart. While we go over our cars ALL OVER
with great pics to help making your decision easier.
Along with ANY other questions you may have.
Email me for a quote for shipping.
Keep in mind, this is not a restored car !!

No problem helping it to the docks if you are shipping overseas .
If you have to wait for the title to ship your car, it still needs to
