This 1988 Mercedes-Benz 230CE was ordered through the Nuernberg Branch in Germany and was imported to Canada in 2009. The current owner bought the car in 2019 and has added roughly 2,400 kilometers and kept regular service records since purchasing. Finished in Arctic White (147) over a Palomino Leather (274) interior, power comes from a 2.3-liter M102 Inline-4 paired to a four-speed automatic transmission. Features include European-style headlamps, 17" AMG monoblock wheels, dual-zone climate control, and power windows. Two years of maintenance records will be included in the sale documenting regular oil changes along with new spark plugs, a fluid flush, a new valve cover and gasket, and a new accessory belt and tensioner. This 230CE currently shows 157,456 kilometers (~97k miles) on the analog odometer and is being offered by the current owner with recent service records, an additional set of OEM wheels, factory literature, two keys, and a clean Canada title.
Finished in Arctic White (147) with contrasting Grey lower cladding, the body presents original paintwork and shows two notable areas of corrosion along each of the rear wheel arches.
