1994 Mercedes-Benz E320 Coupe

Maybe I’m getting old, but I yearn quite often for the Mercedes-Benzes from the 1980s and 1990s. Having grown up in a family that had a 190E 2.6 and a 400E, both of 1992 vintage, I miss the tank-like quality of these cars. These cars always struck me as interesting since they weren’t a boring drive, but didn’t have much in the way of sporting intentions. After driving my parent’s 2000 C280 on a trip home this weekend, the merits of these older Mercs are clear. Thirteen years and 105,000 miles never felt so good.

One of my favorite and most overlooked Benzes from the 1990s is the W124 coupe. Sold in small numbers stateside, they aren’t very flashy for a two-door, but have a simple elegance about them which exudes good taste. This E320 coupe for sale in Illinois is a low mileage survivor that personifies personal luxury.

1994 Mercedes-Benz E320 Coupe on AutoTrader

Rare 1994 Mercedes E320 Coupe, all options, automatic climate control, seat belt assist front seats, power antenna, premium sound, sunroof, Mercedes factory phone. It is hard to find E320 Coupes. Many Convertibles are listed but a coupe is very rarely up for sale. The engine and trasmission run great and shift seamlessly. The interior and all wood is in excellent condition inside this vehicle. Even the trunk mat is clean with no stains, A/C ice cold, always garaged, looks & drives great. Must see, interior like new, title in hand, well maintained.

As a general rule of thumb, the convertibles and 500E/E500 über sedans are the most highly valued W124s. The coupes can bring a little bit more than the estates, and the estates a bit more than the sedans. Since there were so few sold here, the coupes are fairly hard to come across. Nevertheless, $10,000 to $12,000 about the high mark for these cars, barring an exceptional car that might have around 20,000 to 30,000 miles. The 1995 E320 Estate we featured last week sold for $9,600, so I’d say were somewhere up around the $10,000 mark or so as a realistic value for this E320.

  1. Do these have the same issues with the main (biodegradable) wiring harness as the E500 and other W124 cars?

    Thanks for any info on these cars- always liked the lack of b-pillar on MB coupes…

  2. Has the wiring harness been changed? How is the head gasket? How’s the rust on an Illinois car?

  3. Yes, the wiring harness is an issue on these W124s as well, so it would be a must to know whether it has been replaced..

  4. Hey Paul – you haven’t posted since the events in Boston.

    Hope all is well.

  5. Thanks for your concern. I am fine, as well our other writer, Brian, who happens to work in downtown Boston.

    I haven’t posted much in the last week, as I was on holiday in Portugal. I will try and get back on some cars by the end of this week.

    Thanks for reading,

    Paul

  6. Good to hear.
