Potentially new 190E owner :)

hey fellas, I'm Ben from Phoenix, AZ. I'm looking to buy a used 190E. I'm not the guy to race or hit the track(at least not yet), I don't need a super fast car. just putting that out there, not planning to go crazy on one of these project cars. I just want something nice and comfy with beautiful style so on my way home from work last August, I saw a beautiful all white 190E with no badging on it minus the MB logo with the Evo body kit. I was stunned. my lips formed an "O" while this car was passing by me in traffic, nice and slow. My face was both a mixture of confusion and outrage. All I knew was that I had to get one of those myself. I just don't really know anything about these cars. Now i'm just dying to get my hands on one that I can work on and make into a daily driver. Not for work though, I drive a truck for that.
however, there are none for sale in AZ except a $1k 1990 2.6 190E in Yuma.
as you can see, not much info on this. I asked the owner if I could drive this back to Phoenix and he did say yes, but I'm not convinced. the body looks OK. Considering its a South AZ car, I'm positive there is 0 rust. Interior looks OK, only thing I'm really concerned with are the mechanical demons it might have under its skin. So the real question here is, after I talk his price down, would it be worth the buy? there is another around here that I could buy at $300 for parts and a guy is parting out a wrecked 190E around here too for when I need parts.
My overall plan is to get wrenching, paint it white, and re-do the interior. I'm thinking red seats and stuff.

Thanks for any and all input

A ****ing matrix
Talking Im on the same boat

Hey Mr. Know Nothing,

Well I'd say you know something since you came here to ask questions! I'm also interested in buying a 190E. They are beautiful cars and I hope one day I can own one too. Unfortunately, I too don't know red flags I should be looking for when selecting a 190E. Best of luck to you on your hunt! Hopefully someone can educate us NOOBS XD
