Mercedes-Benz W201190E only 66,000km mileage from family ownership Checkbook (1986)
|DE||🇩🇪 40235 Düsseldorf||white|
The presentation of the "Baby Benz" in December 1982 had the effect of a bang forthe buck.
A new, young, modernly styled and technically very sophisticated model series rounded off the conservative Stuttgart Stern range at the bottom and aimed directly at the BMW three-series from Munich. The aerodynamic, cool-functional styling anticipated the S-Class in 1979, but the baby Benz celebrated the premiere of the driving-friendly space-steering axle and the finely responsive damper-strut front axle. The 190 became a huge success with a total of 13 variants and eleven years of production. Between 1982 and 1993, the 190 was produced more than 1.8 million times. With this number of units it ranks among the most successful Mercedes-Benz models.
General information about the vehicle:
The Mercedes-Benz released for auction here is a 190E from the year of manufacture 1986, which bears the VIN WDB2010241F197055 and was first registered for traffic in Germany. According to the seller, the baby Benz has a total of 4 owners and was always in the family. The so-called matching numbers are given, there is a history to the vehicle in the form of a partially kept checkbook and various invoices available and in addition to an H license plate, this Mercedes-Benz sedan has a MOT until May 2024. Since 2016, according to the seller, more than 10,000 € were also invested in maintenance, care and upkeep of this W 201.
Exterior color / paint / body:
As a paint color, this Mercedes-Benz sedan wears the color "Arctic White" (color code 147): Overall, according to the seller, the paint is in very good condition for its age. According to the owner, there has been a paint job in the area of the passenger door - but according to the seller, this paint job was done rather poorly and happened due to a graze damage on the garage door, according to the current owner. As a result, the door is now rusting on the inside according to the seller's information - this is evident when you look at the door from below. Furthermore, the current keeper of the Mercedes-Benz states that there are some scratches on the bumper and the paint overall is not free of small scratches either. However, all add-on parts are in complete condition and modifications to the car deviating from its original condition are not visible.
Tires of the brand Goodyear are mounted on rims in multi-spoke design. The current owner of the car states the condition of the tires somewhere between 70-90% - the condition of the brakes he also estimates between 70-90%. Inconsistencies in the original chassis cannot be listed.
The interior with its blue cloth seats is in very good condition and corresponds to the low mileage of this 190E. The door panels as well as the center console are also in blue color, only the dashboard as well as the steering wheel and the automatic selector lever are black. After deciphering the special equipment codes, the following features, among others, are on board this W 201: electric sunroof, central locking, ABS, automatic antenna, heat-insulating glass all around and a rear window defroster. As a radio is currently an accessory radio in the Mercedes-Benz.
In addition to a partially kept checkbook, the mileage of 65,150 kilometers can also be traced by several invoices - which go back to 1994. All instruments and controls in the interior of this 190 are in perfect working order.
This 190E is powered by the 2.0-liter inline 4-cylinder, which delivers 118 hp via 4-speed automatic transmission to the rear wheels. After consultation with the seller, he states that the last service work was done in May 2022.
The current owner of the Mercedes-Benz sedan declares the underbody condition to be rust-free and without inconsistencies
The "baby Benz" has long been considered a true Mercedes-Benz: because the 190 embodies the serene driving experience of a quality automobile. This 190E offered here is not exempt from this and convinces, among other things, by its all-around honest condition - in addition, this sedan with a star on the hood benefits from the abundant investments that have been taken in hand since 2016 to keep the vehicle in good condition. Furthermore, the seller mentions that this family-owned W 201 has always been garaged and kept smoke- and pet-free.
