Outside More than 2,200 doomed vehicles I photographed at the crash site Over the years, the most trustworthy odometer reading I have found is The gasoline-powered 1987 Mercedes-Benz 190E has a chronograph mileage of more than 600,000 miles (Highest A sort ofThe trusted odometer I have stayed in A 1982 Volkswagen Rabbit Cabrio shows 930,000 miles).Today’s junkyard gem-also found in the San Francisco Bay Area-is the same year, made and model W201 Class C, Even to the same refrigerator white paint… but it is a clean low-mile machine that has not even changed the 100,000 digits on the odometer in its 34-year life.
That’s right, only 83,890 miles!Maybe the speedometer or its cable was broken early in his career, but VDO has made excellent meters and Benz Never cut corners, such as speedo cables.
The interior is also gorgeous, that’s it Rear Experienced all the harsh treatment the garbage truck received before hitting the yard.
It is true that MB-Tex artificial leather is absolutely indestructible, but these seats are not even worn.
The 600,000-mile 190E is equipped with a 2.3-liter gasoline engine and a manual transmission, while this one is equipped with a 2.3 and more common (in North America) four-speed automatic transmission. Perhaps the transmission is the component that ends this car’s driving career.
This engine had 130 horsepower in 1987, and in a 2.6-liter six-cylinder model and a four-cylinder 2.3-16 Cosworth car (respectively), you can get 158 or 190 horsepower.
Why does it end here? We will never know. All the dirt on the exterior and in the engine compartment indicates the need for long-term outdoor storage before arriving here.
