FS: 4matic wagon (no Audi)

Why am I listing this here?
1.  Someone on this German AWD list might be interested in a German AWD 
2.  This guy is well known in this area for his in-depth knowledge of 
quattros, he owned and raced them for nearly a decade before buying the 
Merc.  If I can get him out of the Merc and into a quattro, it'll be 
good for my local group of quattro owners.
3.  He's my brother and a fellow enthusiast.

>You mentioned that you might find someone interested in the

>here are the specifics:
>It is a '91 Mercedes-Benz 300TE 4matic. I bought the car a year ago >in 
Nashville, TN. It was a lady's car, small lady. She told me that >she 
had owned it since '91, the title search agreed with her. The >owner 
told me of two minor dents, both repaired. I removed interior >panels to 
verify.  Damage was R.F. Turnsignal, all steel OK, Hatch >License Plate 
area, minor, filled.  The car body is straight, not a >single door ding. 
It has been dealer serviced. I have had the major >service performed at 
the local dealer (Betten), plus all fluids >changed and inspected. All 
normal. It is a clean car and a very good >running/shifting car, always 
garaged (the speedometer needle is still >orange, sun fades most of them 
to yellow). She has 124,000 miles. >Options include: 3rd seat (perf. 
leather), Pet-net, Cargo cover, >Zebrano wood door and dash trim, 
Palomino Leather seating and door >trim, Upgrade/Premium Cassette Stereo 
(cd and telephone ready), >Heated Seats, Orthopedic Memory Driver's 
seat, Floor Mats (marginal >condition) Passenger air-bag, Two-Tone paint 
(light ivory over >ivory), 4matic, and probably something that I've 
forgotten. The >dealer tells me that it is the most loaded 124 body that 
he has >seen.

>Most other items are standard with the 4matic, if I remember 
>correctly:  Leather Steering Wheel and Shifter, Cruise Control, Power 
>Windows, Automatic Climate Control, Power Reclining Driver and 
>Passenger Seat, power mirror, 4sp automatic, ABS, 4-wheel disk brakes 
>+ drum parking brakes, full-size spare on alloy wheel, power >steering, 
headlamp washer/wipers, fog lamps (front and rear), >self-cleaning tail 
lights, Delay wipers w/ washers front and rear, >heated washer nozzles, 
heated washer tank, cooled fuel return, alloy >wheels, heated rear 
window, heated mirrors, power telescoping >steering, power 2-way 
sunroof, roof-rack, alarm, theft-deterrent >radio, Automatic power 
antenna, Central Locking, Tinted Glass, >Lighted Visor-Vanity Mirrors, 
Zebrano Wood Console Trim, Tachometer, >First-Aid Kit, Impact-resistant 
lower-body panels, Power hatch >pull-down, Driver Air Bag and Seat belt 
pre-tensioners (SRS), >Hydro-Pnuematic Leveling System.

>You are probably familiar with the standard equipment, if so I 
>apologize, some are not. Book retail (NADA, October 1998) is $22,400, 
>loan is $19,800. This does not include any additions for options. I >am 
asking $21,400 which I think is reasonable, but I am not >inflexible. 
The tires are almost new Continentals, and the >Euro-headlamps do not 
stay with the car as they cost over $1k and I >wish to keep them for the 
next wagon.

>My business phone is 616 772-1590 x331, and home (after 6pm, EDT): 
>616-355-2225. If you find anyone interested, please let me know. If I 
>can sell her, maybe we'll go somewhere where they COOK the food! 
>Although I enjoyed the dessert more than I would have the fish >anyway.

Jeff is a genius engineer, is usually requested by name by Mercedes, 
BMW, and Audi, when they need products designed by his company.  There's 
not an inch of this car he hasn't examined for defects, he's driven the 
local Merc dealer crazy.  It's a great car.
