We received this delicious tip from Dave (thanks man!) about a 1987 Mercedes-Benz 190E 2.3 16-valve that is for sale in the Austin Texas Metro region. Very few were imported into the states, and this is by far the most affordable sporting Benz, with a stick available. You will have to make the jump to see the ad though….
According to the very brief listing:
1987 Mercedes Benz 190E 2.3-16v Cosworth, 181K miles, 5 speed clutch replace 3 years ago, runs and drives, has a dent in rear and in drivers door. Inside is ok. good,no a/c need compressor, fast and fun car. new tires, all tags good clean title. $1850 obo.
You can see the posting here. Is this particular Mercedes worth the asking price? Let me know.
