1992 Mercedes-Benz 400E

Lets get this out of the way from the start. This is a really nice 1992 Mercedes-Benz 400E for $2,000. No catch, no disclaimers, no ”just needs (insert part) to run”. Just a clean, V8 W124 for $2,000. This car even has Pirelli tires on it. You don’t put Pirellis, not even cheap ones, on cars you don’t care about. Yes, this W124 has over 215,000 miles, but for $2,000 I don’t care how many miles it has. So what are you waiting for? Go buy this car.

I need to sell this car quickly. Price is OBO
I am selling this 1992 Mercedes 400e in great shape. It has lots of power and is very smooth. The interior is in very good shape with no tears in the leather. The tires are almost brand new with plenty of tread.
There are not many of these cars left on the road and is a wonderful car.
Please call or text me of you are interested.
Thank you,
Luke

It’s pretty clear this W124 has been loved. A quick peek in the garage shows that this car comes from a Mercedes loving family and looking at the interior only solidifies it. The leather and carpets are all really clean while the wood and dash are crack free. The exterior looks awfully fresh and even the grill was painted black to freshen it up. What is even better is that this car has the European headlights and I also spy the OEM warning triangle in the trunk lid that wasn’t available for North American cars.

I don’t know how many more ways to explain how great a deal this is. I see total piles of junk asking more than $2,000 everyday and to run across something like this is my early candidate for deal of the year. I know prices on used luxury cars are always softer in the major metropolitan of California, but this is a whole new level of good deals. It almost makes me feel a little sorry for this owner because he clearly needs to sell it fast, but this was a lot of love given to this 400E only to basically give it away.

One thought on “1992 Mercedes-Benz 400E

  1. This car was originally bought at Downtown Motors in LA and had just one owner until I bought it 4 or 5 years ago from a guy who runs a smog shop in LA and also sells older German cars.

    I installed Depo headlights, the OEM warning triangle. I also installed a new OEM headliner, the later clamshell center console, and send the radio to Becker in NJ to install an auxillary input (the cable since broke). I bought the car with 159,000 miles showing. I also removed some aftermarket 17″ German wheels and put back the OEM ones.

    I even rebuilt the transmission 4 years ago and changed the rubber side mirror external rubber grommets.

    This was a great car to own, and my first Mercedes-Benz. Sadly, the copper/aluminium evaporator sprung a leak and the A/C died. Because this motor uses dual distributors, you have to replace the caps and rotors every few years.

    I sold it to someone who had it for a bit before advertising it here.

    Car has since been sold and is, apparently, going back to Germany.

    The original owner ran this car through the dealership’s carwash every week for years so it acquired a kind of Delorean stainless steel sink finish in the paint.

    Here is a picture of this car the day I bought it, on my way back from LA about a mile from where I bought it (had to tank up for the drive home):

    The wheels were, at the time, quite expensive.

    The car was very well loved and I brought it back from having sat for a long time. The dead A/C just didn’t make it economically feasible and I got a new V8 Mercedes.
